Amazon Prime Day is like Black Monday, except for the added benefit of there being no pretense that what you’re shopping for is a gift for someone else. All of your deal hunting can be focused squarely on yourself. And if you’re like us, after a year of working our kitchen out more than ever before, we’re ready for some new toys to play with.
This year the online retail behemoth is featuring discounts in excess of 50 percent on some of our favorite kitchen brands. We’ve combed all of Amazon’s Prime Day discounts on small appliances and kitchen gadgets to find the best deals on the best gear. Here are the seven you don’t want to miss.
And make sure to check back over the course of the two-day event to see new deals as they become available.

All-Clad D3 Stainless Steel 7-Piece Cookware Set
Long a stalwart of my home kitchen, this three-layer stainless steel cookware set from one of the leading manufacturers is available this Prime Day at a healthy discount. Two layers of steel are layered around a core of aluminum, allowing for outstanding durability and even heating across each pan’s surface. The set comes with a 10-inch fry pan, 3-quart sauce pan with lid, 3-quart sauté pan with lid and an 8-quart stock pot with a lid.
Ninja XL Pressure Cooker
Yes, these countertop multi-cookers crow about their multitude of functions, and that’s left haters like David Chang decrying all of the hype around them. However, when you’re clear-eyed about what you really want from them, then they’re invaluable tools. And what you really want is a countertop pressure cooker—that’s an appliance worth having in your arsenal. Some of the best soups, stews, braises and more have been products of my pressure cooker the last few years. And a true hidden gem of the pressure cooker is weeknight risotto. The pressure cooker lets you make delicious risotto without having to stand over it stirring constantly. They’re practically worth it for that alone.
T-Fal Deep Fryer
Listen, everyone is air frying these days. We’re even touting an air fryer above. But sometimes you’ve got to set the healthy eating aside, break out the knickers with the elastic waistband and get down to some real frying. This countertop deep fryer from T-Fal will get you legit chicken, fish and chips, pommes frites, doughnuts and more. You’ll thank us even if your cardiologist doesn’t.
Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender
There are a lot of flashy new kitchen gadgets out there, but a Vitamix blender is time-tested and true—a workhorse every home cook needs. The powerful motor, jar design and aircraft-grade stainless steel blades make smoothies, purees and emulsions a snap. This professional grade edition of the Vitamix features a 64-ounce jar, five preprogrammed settings and 10 speed settings. Even better still, when you’re done just add a little soap and hot water and the powerful machine will clean itself.
Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Maker
There are seemingly endless ways to brew your cup of joe these days—as we well know—but people are discovering the tried, trusted and true method of that old school drip coffee maker. For the java aficionados among us that have embraced drip coffee, they go with the handcrafted Dutch Moccamaster for their morning cup. That’s because the machines use a high-quality boiler made of copper that heats water quickly and accurately to extract the optimal flavor out of the beans. And while it’ll set you back more than that old Black & Decker machine, it’s solid construction mean it’ll last a lot longer.
Calphalon Air Fryer Oven
You’ve probably known Calphalon primarily for its pans, but this handsome and countertop oven is worth some space in your kitchen, too. It’s nice to have an air fryer and all, but this appliance can do even more than that. While it can get your breaded chicken nice and crispy, it can also do everything from bake fresh bread, toast slices of said bread, broil, roast, dehydrate and even be used as a pizza oven.
FoodSaver V4400 Vacuum Sealer
Listen, sometimes we bite off more than we can chew. Or, more accurately, we buy more than we can eat at one time. Especially when it comes to great steak. So having a great vacuum seal back is the best way to store and freeze meats while ensuring they’ll stay great during their deep freeze. Also, FoodSaver V4400 is a great thing to have for those of us who love to cook sous vide, as it provides the most sure-fire seal for submerging our ingredients in a warm water bath to cook.
