Amazon's annual Prime Day is here—and with it comes a dizzying amount of deals*. Which is why we're here to help you sort, filter, and score some great discounts on our favorite kitchen essentials. That means we'll only be featuring items that our culinary team has handled, tested, and approved.
Amazon will be adding (and removing) discounted products throughout the day, so be sure to check back—we'll be updating this page until the 36-hour event closes out at 3 a.m. on Wednesday, July 18. Here's a look at what we've found so far.
* You'll need an Amazon Prime membership to get these deals. If you don't have one yet, you can sign up right here.
20% Off Joyce Chen Wok
Woks are the best tools for stir-frying if you want to get that distinctly smoky wok hei flavor, but they're also versatile vessels that you can use for braising, deep-frying, or even indoor smoking. This wok rarely goes on sale—and for Prime Day only, it’s 20% off.
32% Off Kamado Joe Ceramic Cooker
Max Good over at AmazingRibs.com reviewed a whole bunch of Kamado smokers and grills, and the Kamado Joe is one of his favorites. Today, it’s 32% off at checkout, which is a big discount considering the normal price tag is over $1,000. Now you can give your friends with Big Green Eggs some grilling competition.
44% Off the Blendtec Designer Series Blender
In our tests to find the best high-end blenders, we liked the Blendtec for its sleek touchscreen, it's large blending jar with a vented lid, and the fact that it's easy to clean. (The seven-year warranty isn't bad either.) With a high-powered blender like this, you can crush ice, make peanut butter, and even whip cream. For a limited time, you can save $200 on your purchase. Blend that!
Up to 33% Off Instant Pot Ultra Models
So maybe you missed it last Prime Day, but the Instant Pot is once again on sale for a super great price. The Instant Pot DUO60 is the top budget option we tested for our review of the best pressure and multicookers. Today, the three-quart and eight-quart "Ultra" versions are on sale. Grab them while they're still affordable.
Up to 44% Off Tramontina Fry Pans
Kenji staged a whole showdown testing the quality and functionality of Tramontina skillets versus the much more expensive All-Clad. What did he learn? Tramontina pans are sturdy, easy to wash, balanced, well shaped, and affordable. Today, they're even more affordable, at up to 44% off. Move quickly, though: The deal is already 10% claimed.
48% Off Lodge Cast Iron Combo Cooker
A combo cooker is the key to getting a beautiful burnished crust on homemade bread. It acts as its own little steam chamber, mimicking what you'd find in a professional bread oven, and it costs way less than a kitchen renovation. Today, this Lodge cast iron combo cooker is 48% off (and then some).
50% Off KitchenAid Pasta Attachment
This KitchenAid attachment takes all of the frustration and fussiness out of making fresh pasta, and, unlike the manual alternatives out there, it's incredibly easy and efficient to operate on your own. Today, this set of three is on sale, plus an extra 10% off at checkout. Hello, homemade ravioli!
36% Off Modernist Cuisine at Home
If you're an avid and adventurous cook but can't bring yourself to buy the five-volume Modernist Cuisine set—which, even on sale, is just about $400—this volume, designed expressly for home cooks, is an incredible resource at a bargain price. The water- and tear-proof recipe manual will likely become your best friend as you navigate recipes like Korean wings, caramelized carrot soup, and sous vide salmon. Even if you're not a cook yourself, Modernist Cuisine at Home makes a gorgeous coffee table book.
31% Off the Breville Boss High-End Blender
Looks like another one of our favorite high-end blenders is on sale today. In our tests, we found the Breville Boss to be especially well-suited to smoothie lovers. With just the touch of a button, it produces super-smooth smoothies and shakes, even with fibrous ingredients like kale. Today, it's at its lowest price ever ($269.95).
Up to 30% Off Our Favorite Toaster Ovens
Having a toaster oven is more essential than you’d think. Not only can it heat up a more diverse range of foods than a slotted toaster, but it does so faster, and with less energy, than a traditional oven. That means you can broil salmon or crisp up that piece of leftover pizza in a matter of minutes, all without making your apartment super hot during the summer. We tested quite a few toaster ovens to find the very best, and today our
45% Off the Anova Wifi + Bluetooth Sous Vide Cooker
If you've been looking to hop on the sous vide bandwagon but have been feeling like $200 is just too much to spend, now is your chance because it's just $108 at checkout. One of our favorite immersion circulators from Anova is 45% off. Once it arrives, be sure to check out Kenji's guide to getting started with sous vide cooking.
40% Off a 12-Inch All-Clad Skillet
Skillets have sloped sides that are ideal for tossing and sautéing your favorite foods, making them one of the most practical, not to mention totally badass, additions to any kitchen. All-Clad’s durable tri-ply stainless steel construction is the cream of the skillet crop, guaranteeing great heat distribution and a multi-generational lifespan. Usually, their 12-inch pan—our recommended size—is a $200 investment, but today it's just $119 on it (or snag a 10-inch one for a neat $99).
$50 Off ChefSteps Joule
Sleek, small, and powerful, the Joule has quickly become one of our top picks for immersion circulators. Today, Amazon is offering a $50 coupon toward the WiFi and Bluetooth versions. Click through and you'll see the discount at checkout.
Up to 33% Off Our Favorite Instant-Read Thermometers
If you read this site regularly, you know that we believe every home cook should own a good instant-read thermometer. One of our all-time favorites, the Thermapen, is on sale today on the ThermoWorks website starting at $63, down from its usual $99. If that's still a little too steep for you, our favorite budget thermometer is also on sale: the Javelin comes in at just under $20.
58% Off Our Favorite 12-Quart Stock Pot
When it comes to making great chicken stock or throwing together a crab boil, having a stock pot is essential. After rounds of testing, we liked the Cuisinart MultiClad Pro stockpot because of its rock-solid build and its triple-ply stainless steel cladding, which manages heat well (so you're less likely to burn your food).
20% Off Our Best Budget Food Processor
This Cuisinart food processor (the best budget pick in our tests) comes with a slicing disk, a grating disk, a blade, and a manual—that's it. That might make it easy to dismiss, but the Cuisinart does an excellent job at core functions of a food processor, from chopping to shredding. A lot of other less expensive food processors out there could take a page or two out of this Cuisinart model's playbook by focusing on getting those primary functions right and ditching the plethora of inevitably crappy attachments. There's a reason this Cuisinart is a classic, and today it's an extra 20% off at checkout.
$5 Off Book Orders Over $20
There are currently about 1,200 books eligible for this discount, and the list just so happens to include two of our very favorite cookbooks: the James Beard Award–winning volumes and , authored by our very own J. Kenji Lopez Alt and Stella Parks, respectively (we're totally not biased, though). Simply add them to your cart and use promo code PRIMEBOOKS18 to take advantage of the discount.
20% Off a Great Silicone Spatula for Non-Stick Pans
In our tests to find the best silicone spatulas, we landed on the GIR Mini Flipper as a super sturdy option. Made of fiberglass covered in silicone, it's great for getting into deeper pans and flipping bigger items like burgers.
20% Off Rubbermaid Oven Thermometer
When ovens run too hot, cookies burn, cakes turn gummy along the bottom, and flaky pastries melt too fast, losing their delicate layers. In cool ovens, cookies turn out thin and pale, cakes develop a wet crumb, and flaky pastries melt too slowly, producing a mealy crust. With a reliable oven thermometer, you can rule out these problems from the start. The best part: what's normally a great under-$10 purchase is now under $6.
57% Off the Best Kettle for Pourover Coffee
This electric kettle has a gooseneck spout that makes it easy to pour a thin, controlled stream—ideal for Chemex and other pourover coffee methods. Plus, the base with controls allows you to set a specific temperature—and hold it there. Today, it's just 43 bucks.
Save $30 on Your First AmazonFresh Order of $100 or More
Looks like this pre–Prime Day deal stuck around, so you can keep shopping our recipes with a nice $30 credit toward groceries. Sign up for AmazonFresh here, browse our recipes, then use code 30FRESH for $30 off your first order.
Get Up to 33% Off Amazon Echo Products
Okay, so an Echo product isn't technically cookware, but it's a deal worth taking note of anyway. Daniel likes using Alexa in the kitchen, especially for setting timers and doing basic math. The Echo Dot is perfectly suited to simple tasks like that, and the second-generation model is 40% off today at checkout.
25% Off Cuisinart’s 17-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set
Cookware sets rarely make our list of recommended items—usually, they mean you'll end up overpaying for pieces you don't need and under-spending on items that are essential—but today we're making an exception. For just $125, you can get a full 17-piece Cuisinart stainless steel cookware set—a massive, and remarkably affordable, starter (and expansion) kit for any kitchen. Note: This deal is currently sold out, but we're betting Amazon will add some more units before the day is up.
