Get the good ice at home with this countertop nugget ice maker. The GE Profile Opal can make up to one pound of pellet ice per hour, enough to carry you from morning cold brew to mint julep happy hour.
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: Food director Chris Morocco proclaims the brand’s cookware “unkillable.”
In 2017 we boldly asserted that a fish spatula is the only spatula you need, and we stand by it. Delicate enough for lacy pancakes but sturdy enough to flip a burger, a fish spatula is a multipurpose kitchen tool that every home cook needs. Save 30% with this Amazon Prime Day deal.
An Ikea bamboo cutting board is fine, but if you’re ready to upgrade to a cutting board that will last a lifetime (should you take proper care of it), consider a Boos block. It’s well-made, gentle on your knives, and big enough to handle all your mise en place.
This chocolate sheet cake with brown butter frosting is so good it caused a stampede in the test kitchen every time food editor Shilpa Uskokovic made it. While a stand mixer isn’t strictly necessary for the recipe, it’s helpful. Buy the KitchenAid or don’t, but definitely make the cake.
If you have a cozy kitchen or don’t want to lug a heavy full-size stand mixer from shelf to counter, you might be a good candidate for the KitchenAid Artisan Mini Plus, which is $120 off today. It can still handle up to five-dozen cookies in a single go despite its smaller size.
On the subject of baking, if you don’t have a kitchen scale and have been beating yourself up over lackluster results, Shilpa would like to have a word: “You need to stop the negative self-talk. It’s not you—it’s your measuring cup. And it’s letting you down.” Get the scale, please. For Shilpa.
If you think drip coffee is not worth getting out of bed for, allow me to introduce the Technivorm Moccamaster. BA contributor and former barista Jenna Adrian-Diaz anointed the Moccamaster the best drip coffee maker on the market—and frankly, at this price, it better be. This morning, however, take $100 off.
Amazon Prime Day is when you’ll find some of the lowest prices all year on those small appliances you’ve been eyeing, including Vitamixes. Many of its models are on sale, but it’s this deal on the 5200 you’ve been saving your ducats for. This is the Vitamix we use in the test kitchen, and it’s absolutely one of the best Prime Day kitchen deals available.
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that having an air filter on hand is never a bad idea. I purchased a HEPA air purifier during the first wave, and the unexpected additional benefit is that my allergies improve whenever I have it running. This model from Coway, which works in spaces up to 361 square feet, is 40% off today.
And this model from Molekule, which is designed for spaces up to 250 square feet, is approved by the FDA as a medical-grade air filter.
A cross-back apron in rumpled cotton or linen is as stylish as it is functional—just ask our editors in the test kitchen. Very ceramicist off-duty.
We’re big fans of the kitchen funnel here at BA, but how often have I stopped to think, I wish this funnel were creepier? My prayers have been answered with this Pinocchio funnel from legacy Italian brand Alessi.
Commerce writer Tiffany Hopkins’s favorite kitchen gadget is her Roomba, and if you’re thinking, “That’s not a kitchen appliance,” then you’ve never seen Tiffany cook. Her robot vacuum whisks away errant sprinkles of flour, wayward nuts, and anything else that ends up on the floor. At a whopping 40% off, this is one of the best Amazon Prime Day kitchen deals currently live.
I was skeptical about Solo Stove’s claims that its fire pits were nearly smokeless, but it is in fact true. No more playing musical chairs around the bonfire, trying to stay upwind.
For the best tasting brew, we recommend you grind freshly roasted beans at home—and we specifically in a burr grinder, like this one from Fellow. It has 31 different settings so no matter whether you prefer French press or AeroPress, you’re guaranteed the right size.
And speaking of, the AeroPress is one of my personal favorite ways to brew coffee, especially if I’m on the road. It’s compact, dead simple, and provides an incredibly smooth and potent shot that I love to mix with a little milk…
…whipped up with an electric milk frother.
Our workhorse cutting board is a Boos block, but when you’re handling raw meat, reach for one of these plastic mats, currently 40% off. They take up almost no counter or drawer space and can be chucked in the dishwasher for easy sanitization. Plus, they each have a grippy back—so even your most butterfingered family member can chop away safely.
This 9.5″ long serrated knife is baker and BA contributor Joy Huang’s pick for best bread knife: “I’ve used knives before that were too flimsy, which made it hard to get through the crusty sourdoughs, but my Misen knife is long and sturdy.” This is a great deal from a small business that we love.
Atlas Coffee Club is one of our favorite subscription coffee services. If you’re not ready to commit to a monthly delivery, consider this sampler pack, which includes eight 1.8-ounce bags of beans from around the world. If you’re just getting into coffee, it’s a great way to learn about what origins and flavor profiles you prefer.
With an AeroGarden, even notorious plant killers can be urban homesteaders. This hydroponic grow system includes seed pods for six different herbs including Thai basil and dill.
For cookies and candies—especially sticky ones like Florentines and marshmallows—a silicone baking mat is a must. No more running out of parchment and no more scraping fused caramel off baking sheets.
Classic Nick & Nora glasses will make any cocktail look elegant, even if you can’t bartend for shit. This set is made by Austrian brand Riedel, which makes some of our favorite stemware.
We love crispy-gone-soggy, but sometimes we also just love crispy, crispy, crispy. That’s where air-frying comes in. This basket-style fryer—one of the best air fryers according to deputy food editor Hana Asbrink—whirs hot air around your potato wedges, chicken tenders, or broccoli florets until that ASMR-level crunch is achieved.
If you’re looking for an air fryer-toaster oven combo, this stainless steel countertop convection oven is another BA favorite. It can even roast a whole chicken.
No disrespect to the plastic quart containers ubiquitous in restaurant kitchens, but glass food storage containers won’t stain, can go straight into the oven or microwave, and are dishwasher-safe. You can never have too many.
I’ve been that guy, juggling a hot 9×13″ baking dish of berry cobbler on a crowded subway car. This insulated carrier will keep your baked goods and casseroles safe and warm until they reach their final destination.
Join the cult of the Stasher bag (one of us, one of us) and get a step closer to a kitchen free of single-use plastics. Stasher bags are not only reusable, they’re dishwasher-, freezer-, microwave-, and oven-safe, and they can even replace single-use plastic sous vide bags. Take 30% off many Stasher Bag products this Amazon Prime Day, including this nearly gallon-size pouch.
Spicewalla, founded by chef Meherwan Irani, is one of our favorite spice companies, and this 10-pack of spices is an excellent way to kit out your kitchen. May I recommend it for a recent graduate, someone newly single moving into their own place, or a parent whose spices are all 10 years old?
A hand vac belongs in your kitchen. Use it to zap up flour after a countertop kneading session, those little bits of onion that go AWOL between the cutting board and the pot, the pile of ground pepper that invariably gathers beneath your grinder.
Have a grimy sheet pan that no amount of scrubbing will get clean? Bust out the power tools. Armed with a drill, some Bar Keeper’s Friend, and these brush attachments, it’ll be gleaming in no time.
You know someone who would like this. Make their day. Skål!
Bon Appétit’s grilling issue is currently on newsstands, and if a reliable grill is currently in your backyard, you can cook your way through these garlicky ribs and spiced tiger prawns. If not, Weber grills—both charcoal and propane—are on sale right now.
Speaking of ribs, an Instant Pot/grill one-two punch is one of our favorite preparation methods. The electric pressure cooker gets them nice and tender while the grill brings the flavorful char. In addition to tough cuts of meat, we love Instant Pots for beans (feast your eyes on these slow cooker gigante beans in tomato sauce) as well as stock and rice.
Heritage Italian brand Gaggia is responsible for the modern espresso machine as we know it today, and if you’re in the market for a relatively affordable manual espresso coffee maker, we recommend the Gaggia Classic Pro. But if you prefer to just push a button and go, you can expect the same Gaggia quality from the super-automatic Velasca. Take $250 off right now.
BA contributor Allie Wist houses these no-ABV cans of seltzer-and-bitters like it’s her job. The spiced bitterness of Hella Bitters makes for a more compelling drink than just plain soda water, especially when she’s looking for a nonalcoholic alternative to a cocktail.
When the Barbie movie finally drops, I’m sneaking into the theater with these magenta martini glasses and an insulated water bottle full of cosmos.
For my pour-over princesses, save on this handsome stainless-steel electric kettle.
In the eternal words of Sisqo, sort of, “Tongs tongs tongs tongs tongs.” Prime members can save almost 30% on this 9-inch (food director Chris Morocco’s preferred tong length) and 12-inch set. They’re compatible with your favorite nonstick cookware thanks to the silicone tips.
Mushroom lamps: The hottest home decor trend I didn’t see coming. Both the plug-in nightlight and this chic Murano glass–inspired table lamp are discounted for Amazon Prime Day.
A rice cooker is the ultimate in set-it-and-forget-it convenience, allowing you to turn your attention to mastering khai jiao instead of wondering whether your rice is burning. This Zojirushi is what we use in the test kitchen.
The day I became an adult was the day I traded in paper towels for cloth napkins. This 100% linen pack of six comes in a range of colors to suit your tablescaping needs.
Do you require more power from your pepper mill? This heavy-duty (emphasis on the heavy; it weighs 1.83 pounds) pepper cannon will shower your food with more pepper, more faster. This stainless-steel burr grinder is the same type of mechanism we recommend for coffee—and it comes at a price. Apply the coupon for 15% off.
Countertop vacuum sealers are great if you shop in bulk and want to make sure 60 chicken thighs don’t develop freezer burn. But they’re also an essential tool if you want to sous vide. Throw our favorite sous vide machine, the Breville Joule, into your cart and you’re ready to go.
Copper cookware is expensive, and even an Amazon Prime Day discount can’t change that. But there’s a reason professional chefs have relied on copper pots and pans for literally thousands of years—it’s an excellent conductor of heat. French brand de Buyer makes gorgeous stainless-steel-lined copper cookware that will stand you in good stead.
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? True value.
If you’re trying to cut down on single-use plastics like we are at BA, prepare to lean heavily on this set of beeswax-coated food wrappers. They’re a great substitute for plastic wrap and aluminum foil; just briefly warm the beeswax wrap with your hands and the sheets will become tacky and flexible.
Our pick for best centrifugal juicer, the Breville Juice Fountain has a built-in froth separator and a wide-mouth feed tube that can gobble whole apples.
Le Creuset gear doesn’t go on sale every day, and deals on its signature Dutch ovens are especially rare. Don’t sleep.
Put it on pizza. Drizzle it over brussels sprouts. Stir it into a mug of ginger tea when you’re feeling under the weather.
If you, like BA contributor Amanda Shapiro, are a Virgo who loves a good system, stock up on these wire pantry baskets, currently 20% off.
Naval officer and BA contributor Victoria Cavazos swears by this collapsible coffee cup, which accordions into a disc that she can fit into her uniform.
Just last week I found some brown mustard seeds hiding on my spice shelf, obscured behind a giant plastic container of coriander. How long has this been here, I wondered? Which is why I will be buying this two-tiered lazy Susan this Amazon Prime Day so my spices stay organized and always within sight.
I’m a food professional, and mandolines still kinda freak me out. The whole point is that they are incredibly sharp and can slice through just about anything—including your hand! Get a pair of these cut-resistant gloves and mandoline with confidence.
There are two hallmarks of a fancy kitchen: one of those jointed pot-filler faucets over the stove and pull-out organizers in every cupboard. Upgrade your space without doing a full HGTV reno with these cabinet organizers—perfect for storing pots and pans and their lids.
Bacon. Pancakes. Burgers for 10. If you’re feeding a crowd or just want to casually say, “Oh this? I cooked it à la plancha,” you need a cast-iron griddle. At 33% off, this pre-seasoned number from Lodge is a steal.
This bakeware set from Staub is calling out for cherry biscuit cobbler, cherry clafouti, and cherry and dark chocolate crostata.
There’s nothing quite like the earthy, umami acidity of Chinkiang black vinegar, which hails from the Chinese city of Zhenjiang. Use it as a dressing for watermelon and snap pea salad or cut with soy as a dipping sauce for scallion pancakes.
This handsome skillet measures 18.5×15.8″, making it the perfect size for a whole fish or a long strip of skirt steak. Take it from stovetop to oven to table.
If you like your coffee full-bodied and rich, a French press is for you. Bodum’s Chambord French press is a well-designed classic.
A headlamp is an essential grilling tool. If you’ve ever waved your cell phone flashlight above a hot grill while trying to baste and flip, this deal is for you.
This spiced hot chocolate features reishi mushroom, and BA editor Ali Francis writes that it’s “very tasty, especially when whisked into hot oat milk, topped with marshmallows, and consumed alongside an episode of And Just Like That.”
