Prime Day, Amazon’s annual sale for Amazon Prime members, is here. This year, the two-day event kicks off today, June 21, and wraps up on the 22nd. And for those who have been in the market for the kinds of household goods Amazon reliably stocks — e.g. blenders, air fryers, and utilitarian cookware — now’s the time to consider what might be worth adding to cart.
To help in that endeavor, we’ve rounded up the best kitchen deals from the go-to brands in their categories. Expert Prime Day shoppers will know about lightning deals, which only last for a few hours. But, take heart, these will all be available all day long. There are even deals to be had after the close of the two-day sale, so keep checking back. Happy shopping.
The best-in-the-game blender brand has a few models on sale. The steepest discount is on the self-cleaning Vitamix 5200, the blender Wirecutter named best at blending everything. Although its price typically hovers around $450, at nearly 50 percent off, you can get it for $279, only on Tuesday.
For a more introductory Vitamix, you could opt for the Explorian, which is 30 percent off on the 22nd and under $200.
One more discounted Vitamix option: the A3300 Ascent Series Smart Blender is perhaps still a splurge at $320 but as far as blenders go, it’s very high tech, featuring a programmable timer and touchscreen controls.
While you won’t score one of Le Creuset’s famous Dutch ovens as a part of the sale this year, the brand’s enameled cast iron is an option. This grill pan, useful if grilled vegetables are calling to you this summer and you don’t have a Weber, is on sale for $100 in red cerise or blue Marseille.
Calphalon is offering complete cookware sets at a steep discount. The 11-piece set of pots and pans is a full 50 percent off
. Those running lower on cabinet space might consider this 12-inch, nonstick wok, usually close to $100 and now less than $70.
As in years past, the “it” appliance of the 2010s is on sale for Prime Day. The Instant Pot Duo Plus, in the six quart size, is normally $120, but is selling for $55 today.
The brand also sells the “it” appliance that supplanted the slow cooker, in popular estimation if not in utility. The Instant Vortex Plus, an air fryer, broiler, roaster, and dehydrator, is available at a lesser discount of 35 percent.
The brand’s compact kitchen system, which blends, chops, mixes frozen drinks, and more is $50 off for Prime Day.
Like other kitchen appliance brands, Ninja has a pressure cooker in its roster, and it’s 40 percent off today.
Those starter Sodastreams include just one Co2 cylinder and bottle, but Sodastream bundles are also on sale if you’d like to upgrade to a system with three bottles, two Co2 cylinders, and two bottles of flavor drops.
