As editors who have covered and shopped Amazon Prime Day for years, we’ve gotten pretty good at sifting through (quite literally) thousands of deals. But whether you’re an expert or not, Prime Day can still be overwhelming—no matter who you are, when there are 50 vacuums to choose from, it’s tough! Our very best tip for shopping on Prime Day like a pro? Focus on the things you already want or need, instead of adding to cart just because something’s on sale.
That’s why our picks for the best kitchen deals during Prime Day are essentials that we love—and know you will, too. Think: a pair of KitchenAid shears that we have two (okay, three) of or an enameled cast iron Dutch oven beloved by one of our favorite food bloggers.
From our virtual shopping bags to yours, here are the best Prime Day kitchen deals to take advantage of this year. If you’re on the hunt for the best home deals, head over here. Oh, and keep an eye on this spot for new deals as they launch, too—it is a two-day event, after all.
1. Contigo Cortland Chill 2.0 Water Bottle,
This two-pack deal makes the best affordable insulated water bottle we tested even more budget-friendly. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen yet for these bottles, so we’d recommend stocking up while the deal’s still hot.
2. Frigidaire EFIC103-AMZ-SC Counter Top Maker,
For an ice maker that’s a little easier on your wallet, try this model that’s similar to the Frigidaire model we tested. It makes nine pieces of bullet-shaped ice every couple of minutes, so you’ll always have ice whenever you need it. The stainless-steel version is the only one on sale, but we don’t mind—the sleek look should blend right into any kitchen.
3. Takeya Patented Deluxe Cold Brew Coffee Maker,
For the price of two cold brew coffees at a local shop, you can grab this popular brewer and make your own at home. The one-quart version we have has been holding steady for years, and at this price, we wouldn’t mind grabbing another.
4. KitchenAid Artisan Mini Plus 3.5-Qt. Tilt-Head Stand Mixer,
If you tend to bake in smaller batches, the KitchenAid mini stand mixer is a solid deal and won’t take up the entire counter. It’s not the lowest price we’ve seen, but considering how much we’ve used our large KitchenAid mixer over the years, it’ll prove its worth in about oh, two baking sessions. Most of the colors are available at a Prime Day discount, and you’ve got your pick between a shiny or matte finish, too.
5. Instant Pot Vortex Plus 6-Quart 6-in-1 Air Fryer Oven,
This Instant Pot air fryer can replace a handful of countertop appliances and help you get dinner onto the table super fast. It’s the same size as our favorite Instant Pot air fryer for small families, but still every bit as powerful, and has the added benefit of a clear window so you can see how the sausage is made (literally and figuratively). While it’s not the cheapest we’ve seen this popular model go for, it’s still a great deal for the size.
6. Dash Deluxe Rapid Egg Cooker,
Ah, that Dash egg cooker. It’s been on sale during Prime Day each year, and we’re always tempted to grab another one every time to have on hand as a gift. For anyone who loves to eat eggs (read: me), this little gadget is way more useful than you might expect.
7. Amazon Basics Enameled Cast Iron Covered Dutch Oven, 6-Quart,
Kylie Lato, founder and writer behind Midwest Foodie, has been using her 6-quart Amazon Basics Dutch oven at least once a week for years, which means this budget-friendly piece of cookware is worth every single penny. And now that certain colors are on sale during Prime Day, it’s an even better deal.
8. KitchenAid Classic Mixing Bowls, Set of 3,
Mixing bowls are like the kitchen equivalent of trinket catch-all trays—they’re practical, they’re pretty, and they’re endlessly versatile for storage, serving, and of course, mixing. These KitchenAid bowls also nest within each other for easy storage, have non-slip silicone bottoms, and come with a pour spout for less mess. I’ve got a set of the classic Empire Red ones, but this Pistachio color is calling my name.
9. KitchenAid All-Purpose Shears with Protective Sheath,
This was one of the most popular items that our community shopped during Prime Day last year. And with good reason: Between the affordable price and many uses around the kitchen, we weren’t surprised that readers snapped up these shears in every color (yours truly included).
10. GE Profile Opal Countertop Nugget Ice Maker with Side Tank,
The original version of the best ice maker we tested for nugget ice, the GE Opal can churn out 24 pounds of ice to chill all your drinks without the unnecessary extras like Wi-Fi capability that’ll add to the cost. While it’s still not an “affordable” investment, it is one that’ll come in so handy when temps start to soar.
11. Recess Mood Variety Pack,
Okay, so this isn’t an essential tool, but during these trying times, it’s definitely essential! For anyone who can use some extra calm (so, all of us), our favorite CBD-infused sparkling water from Recess is 20 percent off during Prime Day. Grab a multi-pack for your next weekend hang, or anytime-hang, really.
