We’re deep into Amazon’s Prime Big Deal Days, otherwise known as Amazon Prime Day: Part Deux, and these Prime Day kitchen deals are hotter than a thoroughly preheated Lodge cast-iron skillet (which is on sale right now, by the way).
The best kitchen gear to buy this Prime Day
While we’re on the topic of cast iron, it’s worth mentioning that this October Prime Day sale is a great time to save on Le Creuset’s 6- and 7.5-quart enameled cast iron Dutch ovens (you can stock up for holiday cooking or gifting). Or perhaps you’d like to grace your countertop with a shiny new espresso machine, upgrade to an air fryer oven from the basket-style kind, or treat yourself to that Vitamix blender you’ve been eyeing so you can start making smoothies at home every morning. Because our favorite Vitamix blender—the one that kept selling out during the summer Prime Day Sale—is miraculously still on sale as of Tuesday night. In addition to the impressive small appliance deals, you’ll also find great deals on frying pans, cookware sets, helpful gadgets, and so much more.
So if you’ve been meaning to upgrade your kitchen gear—or perhaps get ahead of your holiday shopping so you can leisurely enjoy Thanksgiving leftovers on Black Friday like we used to back in the good old days—you don’t want to miss these Amazon October Prime Day deals.
How to get the very best kitchen deals
Prime Day is practically a national shopping holiday at this point, so anyone can save at least a few bucks on items at Amazon and competing retailers through Wednesday night—no coupon required. But here’s the thing about those really big discounts: During Amazon’s big sales events, the very best deals are exclusive to Prime Members. The good news is that if you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, you can stillright now and take advantage of the trending deals as they happen (and we won’t even judge if you cancel before the trial is over). Just be sure you’re logged into your new Prime account by the time you get to checkout.
Now onto to the best kitchen deals of Prime Day 2023, Part II:
Prefer not to read? Here are the best Prime Day kitchen deals to shop right now:
Shop by category
KitchenAid stand mixers are our top pick for most home bakers for a reason: They’re solidly constructed, easy to use, and if you take good care of them, they’ll last for decades. The Artisan series 5-quart model is big enough to tackle just about any baking project you throw at it—and it’s currently on sale for $70 off.
Nordic Ware Sheet Pan Set
Metal sheet pans are absolute kitchen essentials, and Nordic Ware makes some of our all-time favorites. While half-sheet is the standard size for home kitchens, we love quarter sheet pans for everything from easy weeknight dinners for one to baking off small late night batches of chocolate chip cookies. This two-piece set is made of scratch-resistant, easy-to-clean nonstick aluminum that makes cleanup a breeze.
Cafe Specialty Drip Coffee Maker
The Café Specialty Drip Coffee Maker came out on top in our product test for a reason: It’s simple enough for beginners, customizable enough for coffee buffs, has a sleek modern look, and makes a damn good cup of joe. If you find yourself buying coffee every morning because the stuff that comes out of your decades-old drip machine tastes like glorified bean water, we kindly suggest you treat yourself while this major upgrade is on sale for 25% off.
Breville Barista Express
Breville is a top player when it comes to espresso makers, and their products consistently fare well in our product reviews for their high quality, intuitive design, and luxe feel. The Barista Express is no exception to this rule: With its sleek stainless steel finish, built-in burr grinder, temperature control and optimal water pressure systems, and powerful milk frother, it’s your ticket to making a professional barista-quality latte right at home. It’s an admittedly pricey machine, which means there’s no better time to snag one than when it’s 25% off.
If hectic mornings make you long for the convenience of a single-serve coffee maker, we recommend the Nespresso Vertuo coffee and espresso maker. Senior commerce writer Emily Farrisshe claims it’s the one small kitchen appliance she would grab in a fire (and we believe her). The Vertuo Plus has a 40-ounce water reservoir and makes shockingly good coffee and espresso-style shots—always with an impressive crema—and the pods are recyclable. Nespresso even makes pod recycling simple and easy by including optional free postage-paid bags with every pod order. If you want the option to make lattes at home, take advantage of the one of the best Prime Day deals that bundles a Nespresso machine with an Aeroccino milk frother.
Zulay Handheld Milk Frother\
A battery-operated hand-held milk frother makes it easy to turn your coffee or espresso into café au laits, lattes, or cappuccinos at home. Smaller and more affordable than pitcher-style milk frothers, this one won’t heat your milk, but it still does a great job of frothing milk and it tucks easily into the utensil drawer (though this model also comes with a stand if you want to store it on the counter). Right now you can get it for 40% off.

Le Creuset Dutch Oven
A Le Creuset Dutch oven is a Nancy Meyers fantasy kitchen staple for a reason: This cookware is made to last forever. It heats evenly, gets super hot for perfect searing, and it works in the oven and on the stovetop. Not to mention the fact that it stuns on the countertop or tabletop, as well. The thing that sets Le Creuset apart from other Dutch ovens is, quite simply, the fact that the enamel never chips. This cookware is an investment, even at this killer discount, but it’s one of the best ones you can make for your kitchen as an avid home cook.
Lodge Dutch Oven
If a Le Creuset or Staub Dutch oven is out of your price range, our favorite budget option from Lodge is also on sale right now. It’s got sturdy, easy-to-grip handles and comes in a rainbow of colors just like the more expensive guys—and, most importantly, it’s a well-made piece of cookware that’ll last you well as long as you take care of it. We also love that the edges of Lodge’s Dutch ovens are sloped, which makes it that much easier to get to the corners of the pot with your wooden spoon or silicone spatula.
Lodge Cast-Iron Skillet
You know Lodge for its affordable but reliable cast-iron Dutch ovens, griddles, and fry pans. As far as price-to-utility ratio goes, a pre-seasoned $30 Lodge skillet is one of the best kitchen deals out there. But a $20 Lodge cast-iron skillet? That’s a true value. These make great housewarming gifts too, so at this price, you might want to stock up.
Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Casserole Dish
Dutch ovens are nice (okay, really nice if you’re buying Le Creuset), but while you’re shopping for enameled cast iron cookware, we encourage you to also. More shallow than a Dutch oven, it’s great for braising, sauteéing, pan frying, and even baking casseroles—as evidenced by the fact that Lodge calls its braiser a “covered casserole.” Whatever you want to call it, Lodge’s shallow cast iron cooking vessel is an affordable alternative to Le Creuset’s much pricier braiser and you’ll be happy you have it around this holiday season. As part of Prime Big Deal Days, you can get it for almost half off.
All-Clad Stainless Steel Skillet Set
Do you know someone who needs a forever set of pots and pans? Do you really like that person? (Is that person you?) All-Clad is used in professional kitchens and the test kitchen for a reason: BA Test Kitchen director Chris Morocco proclaims the brand’s cookware “unkillable.” Right now their 10-piece set—which includes just about every pot and pan you could possibly need—is over 40% off, so if you’re the kind of person who likes all of your cookware to match, this is a deal you don’t want to miss.
All-Clad Nonstick Skillet Set
If nonstick is more your vibe, All-Clad makes some of our favorite nonstick skillets too. In signature All-Clad fashion, they heat evenly—and retain that heat. And their nonstick coating is very effective. You’ll turn out the scrambled eggs and omelets of your dreams on these puppies.
Green Pan Nonstick Skillet Set
Green Pan is a favorite brand among nonstick stans, and we can see why: Their skillets are durable, heat evenly, and are made of a ceramic nonstick coating that’s free of PFAS, PFOA, lead, and cadmium. This two-piece set is a great deal at just $30, and will cover your bases whether you’re frying a couple of eggs for breakfast or sautéing veggies for a Sunday night dinner.

Air fryer and toaster oven deals
Philips Air Fryer
At over 50% off, the Philips Premium Airfryer XXL is arguably the best Amazon Prime Day air fryer deal we’ve seen thus far. Deputy food editor Hana Asbrink uses hers to help frozen foods like french fries and egg rolls achieve maximum crispy status, but she’ll also bust it out for proteins like fish, pork belly, and even a whole chicken (when we say XXL, we mean XXL—it’s big enough to feed a whole family, one of the only basket style air fryers that can). “The clear win for me is the lack of preheat time,” says Asbrink, which makes it more efficient both from an energy and time perspective. With a 7-quart capacity, the Philips is not tiny; its footprint is 15.5″ x 15.5″. But it’s an excellent choice if you have the counter or cabinet space and have a need, a need to air fry.
Breville Compact Smart Toaster Oven
Breville’s Smart Oven toasters consistently come out as some of our top picks in the category, but not everyone has space for the Smart Oven Pro and Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro we recommend in our best toaster ovens review. If that’s the case for you, this compact version of those models is a great alternative. You still get the smart Element iQ System, the wide range of cooking functions, and the sleek LCD display, but all in a compact format that’s more small space-friendly.
Read our roundups of the best air fryer deals (including the Ninja Foodi!) and the best toaster oven deals:
If we had to recommend just one Vitamix model, it would be the Vitamix 5200 blender. And today, it’s a whopping 45% off for Prime Members. While the interface may seem basic, we love that this blender is both simple to use and ultra high-powered, capable of taking on any task you give it—whizzing pesto, pulverizing nuts, crushing ice, or churning out the smoothest soups, smoothies, and purées imaginable.
The Explorian does everything the 5200 does, but in a more compact frame that’s easier to fit under overhead cabinets, and at a more affordable price. At $190, this refurbished model is the cheapest Vitamix you’ll find in this Prime Day sale—and the cheapest Vitamix you’ll find anywhere, really.
Zwilling Personal Blender
This powerful personal blender has a 500-watt motor, and the 20-ounce size is ideal for single-serving smoothies and juices. It’s small enough to fit in your kitchen cabinets, but chic enough to live on your counter. It also comes with a to-go lid so you can take your drink on the road.
Instant Pot deals
Instant Pot Duo
The Instant Pot Duo is an all-around kitchen MVP that can do the work of a rice cooker, crock pot, pressure cooker, and then some—and now’s your chance to snag one for under $100. We love using this for everything from homemade yogurt to last-minute braises, and the 6-quart capacity is large enough to cook a whole chicken or a big batch of chili.

Zeppoli Classic Dish Towels
You can never have too many clean dish towels, so stock up on this 15-pack while they’re on sale. With a durable 100% cotton construction, these are ultra-absorbent and quick-drying, so they’re perfect for tackling in-the-moment cooking messes. They also have a classic herringbone weave design with a simple blue stripe, so they look nice enough to double as cloth napkins for your next dinner party.
If you’re trying to kick your paper towel habit in favor of a more sustainable solution, then you need these Swedish dishcloths. They’re made from eco-friendly cellulose, can hold up to twenty times their weight in water, and can be reused up to 100 times. A pack of 10 will last you anywhere from nine months to a year before needing to be replaced.
Microfiber Cleaning Cloths
We always keep a pack of these microfiber cleaning cloths stashed in our kitchen because they’re simply the best for getting a shiny, streak-free finish on glassware and other delicate dishes. They come in a pack of 12, so you can also keep a few in your car, or use them to wipe down countertops and cabinets to keep your space free from dust.
Mr. Siga Mini Dustpan and Brush Set
Got crumbs? It’s cool; we all do. But keeping a tiny broom and dustpan to use exclusively on kitchen surfaces (that aren’t the floor) is a great way to. Alternatively, it can save you from the tedious task of picking debris out of a microfiber cloth, if you’ve already curbed your paper towel habit. Either way, this cute little guy from Mr. Siga is already affordable and on sale today.
Tineco Floor ONE S7 PRO Smart Mop Vac
If you’ve yet to experience the, then let this be the day we change your life. Because if you’re plagued with the task of cleaning the floor in your home—whether you cohabitate with kids, pets, or an exuberant cook—you’ll wonder how you ever lived without an appliance that mops hard floors like hardwood and tile while also sucking up dirt, debris, dog hair, and wayward pieces of elbow macaroni. This one is thanks to its edge-to-edge mopping capabilities and as part of Amazon’s two-day October sales event, Prime Members can get it for 30% off.
Thanks to these reusable silicone storage bags, we have completely phased out single-use plastic zip-top bags from our kitchen repertoires. This 6-piece set comes with three smaller snack-sized bags and three larger bags that can hold most sandwiches. They’re leak proof, so you can toss one in your tote bag without worrying about spills, and they’re dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.
We’re all about sustainable kitchen solutions here, and beeswax wrap is a great way to reduce your reliance on plastic wrap. Use this to wrap that random half lemon, cover a bowl of dough as it rises, or fill in for your missing Tupperware lid in a pinch. They’re sold in a pack of three, and can be used again and again for up to a year with proper care.
Oxo food storage containers
This 16-piece food storage container set is made from borosilicate glass that can go in the oven, microwave, freezer, and dishwasher, so they’re perfect for meal planning and holiday prep. Each piece comes with a leak proof lid that secures with four locking tabs, so even your sauciest dishes aren’t going to spill. The containers also nest for easy storage.
Fun countertop appliances
GE Ice Maker
If you’re going to splurge on something this Prime Day, the GE Ice Maker should be a serious contender for your one big-ticket item. It makes nugget ice—which is without question the best ice—and can produce a whopping 24 pounds of it every day. Is it a must-have? No. Do you want it anyway? Absolutely.
Cuisinart Food Processor
If you’re one of those people who thinks you can have a blender or a food processor, we hate to break it to you, but these two appliances do different things. Cuisinart’s 14-cup food processor is one of those appliances that will make your life so much easier, so break up with your box grater and buy this pro-level vegetable chopper while it’s on sale.
Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker
There’s something deeply satisfying about being able to whip up a batch of homemade ice cream on a whim, and Cuisinart makes one of the best ice cream makers on the market. The double-insulated bowl has a 1.5-quart capacity, and will churn out fresh ice cream in around 20 minutes.
Zojirushi Rice Cooker
A Zojirushi is the Cadillac of rice cookers, and it’s currently very on sale. Lest you think this is a bulky unitasker, the Zojirushi Rice Cooker can also double as a steamer, and it has a sleek brushed stainless steel exterior that will look great sitting out on your kitchen counter. Or, snag it’s smaller 3-cup counterpart if you’re looking for something simpler that takes up less counter space.
Ooni Pizza Oven
Whether you dream of one day opening your own small-batch wood-fired pizza empire or just want to host epic backyard pizza nights at home, it’s hard to beat Ooni’s outdoor pizza oven. It can reach temperatures as high as 950 degrees Fahrenheit, and uses a convenient pellet hopper so you don’t actually have to chop wood.
Vitamix Food Cycler
If you’re trying to reduce food waste, the Vitamix Food Cycler will make a huge impact in your household. It’s silent, odorless, and has a five-liter capacity, making it a serious upgrade from your standard countertop compost bucket. It turns food scraps into high-quality plant food that you can mix directly into soil, so your plants will thank you, too.
Knife deals and other kitchen gadgets
Global Chef’s Knife
This is the MVP of kitchen tools. The Global Chef’s Knife is both lightweight and exceptionally well-balanced thanks to its hollow, sand-filled blade. It’s super stable, and is excellent for the most delicate knifework, plus it comes with a lifetime warranty against defects and damages. Get this if you’re looking for a versatile knife that will feel like an extension of your arm.
Victorinox Chef’s Knife
One of our editors’ favorite budget-friendly chef’s knives, this versatile option from Victorinox is great for anyone who’s just getting started in the kitchen. It has a durable stainless-steel blade, and a sturdy, ergonomic handle that will feel comfortable to hold even during an all-day cooking marathon (we’re looking at you, Thanksgiving).
Yes, you need a fish spatula, and we love this durable, budget-friendly option. It has a thin, pliable head that can make flipping even the most delicate foods a breeze, and it has a nonslip handle so you don’t lose your grip. It’s also dishwasher safe, and comes with a hanging loop so you can easily store it.
Kai 8-inch Shears\
When was the last time you replaced your kitchen shears? If you can’t remember, you should do it while these 8-inch scissors are nearly 40% off. Technically, they’re intended for cutting through fabric, but senior staff writer Emily Farris has been using a pair of these in her kitchen for both culinary and cardboard-box-opening tasks for more than three years and they’re still going strong. She even puts them through the dishwasher (gasp!) without issue every once in a while.
Longzon Knife Sharpener
Traditional knife sharpening is an art and it’s not as easy as it looks—which is why we love a multi-stage knife sharpener. It takes most of the guesswork out of sharpening and honing a blade, and it feels safer than using a whetstone. Right now, you can get this four-stage knife sharpener (that also sharpens scissors!) bundled with a cut-resistant glove for more than half off.
