Amazon Prime Early Access Sale
It's official: Amazon Prime Day is over. For the uninitiated, during these two days (Tuesday and Wednesday, July 12 and 13) Amazon slashed prices on thousands of items, including all things kitchen-related. But, fear not! There are still plenty of great Prime Day deals happening.
We parsed through them to find our favorite sales available right now.

Chef'n FreshForce Citrus Juicer
Normally $25, Now $18
When life gives you lemons, you need this juicer, which is our favorite manual-style model. It can juice a citrus half in one swift movement—no grinding back and forth, no juice on your hands—plus, it extracts more citrus oil from the peels, for more fragrant juice. And at less than $20, there's really no excuse not to get it.

Anova Culinary Wi-Fi Immersion Circulator
Normally $220, Now $140
Our favorite sous vide machine with on-board display (for those not looking to fiddle with an app) is on super-sale. However, for those looking for an app-controlled model, it also has that and is WiFi- and Bluetooth-enabled. It's quiet and pretty dang accurate, too.
Normally $165, Now $90
If you want to try your hand at gardening but don’t have any outdoor space, an Aerogarden is a great solution. The hydroponics system makes growing fresh herbs in your home or apartment easy. All you have to do is add seed pods, water, and more water or nutrients when the Aerogarden tells you to. You can grow herbs, lettuce, and even cherry tomatoes.

All-Clad Stainless Steel Saucepan with Lid
Normally $180, Now $120
While we're Team Saucier over saucepan, you can't go wrong, really, with any piece of stainless steel cookware from All-Clad...especially at 33% off. A 3-quart saucepan is the move if you're looking for all-around useful size.
Traeger Grills Pro Series 34 Electric Wood Pellet Grill and Smoker
Normally $700, Now $600
We've reviewed Traegers favorably in the past and while we haven't tried this particular model, it's a good price for a Traeger, which is the pioneer of pellet smoking. Another Traeger grill we like (the Lil' Tex Elite) is also currently on sale for about $500.
Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug
Normally $30, Now $22
If you want a travel mug that keeps your coffee or tea INCREDIBLY hot for hours and hours on end, this one from Zojirushi is it. It also has a lock button on its lid and a spout that's easy to drink from. It's Grace's go-to for bringing coffee or tea on a hike, since it's so leakproof.
Breville the Barista Express Espresso Machine
Normally $750, Now $650
We tested a similar model to this one in our espresso machines review and while we didn't name it our top pick, our coffee expert called it "a great option for someone who wants an all-in-one espresso experience."

Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Brewer
Normally $330, Now $230
While it's not our favorite coffee maker, if you enjoy tinkering to get the perfect brew, this Moccamaster might be worth getting (we found its brew basket had to be agitated during brewing in order for it to extract properly). Plus, it's 12% off. If you're looking for a slightly simpler machine, check out our automatic drip coffee brewer review, and this one that goes through our budget picks.
Ozera Popsicle Molds
Normally $20, Now $14
Our budget-friendly popsicle mold recommendation is currently 35% off. We found them easy to fill and quick to unmold. The set features drip guards and comes with a silicone funnel and cleaning brush.
