A happy and prosperous Amazon Prime Day to you and yours! Over 80,000 items will be on sale, so in an attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff, we’ve put together a list of the best Amazon Prime Day kitchen deals approved by Bon Appétit editors. Through midnight tonight, Amazon Prime members can take advantage of Deals of the Day, flash sale Lightning Deals, or Double Doozy Dark Deals, which you summon by saying “Bezos” three times fast while spinning in a circle. (That last one is a joke…we think.) We’ll be updating this post throughout the day to reflect what’s currently active—those Lightning Deals go fast—so be sure to check back!
If you missed out on that Lodge Dutch oven deal yesterday, fear not: This enameled cast-iron Le Creuset is over 40% off starting now. Unlike a more traditional Dutch oven, the sides of this 4.5-quart pot are gently sloped. Comes with a bonus trivet!
I’m a Chinese American food writer, and I can tell you with complete honesty that I didn’t know how to cook rice on the stove until March, when my rice cooker broke. 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 if your rice is burning. This 5½-cup model from Zojirushi is the official appliance of the BA Test Kitchen, and it’s currently 45% off.
BA editor Christina Chaey’s tri-ply Calphalon saucepan makes solo cooking a breeze, but if you’re setting up your own kitchen for the first time (or know someone who is and could use a thoughtful gift), consider springing for this entire set. You’ll get the saucepan plus a stockpot, a sauté pan, and both a 10-inch and an 8-inch frying pan—everything you need in one fell swoop.
A Vitamix under $200 is a mythical beast, but today it can be yours. This pre-owned, refurbished Vitamix Explorian comes at a gentler price than the 5200s used in the BA Test Kitchen (although the 5200’s seven-year warranty is not included). The container on this model holds 64 ounces just like the 5200, but it’s shorter and squatter for easier storage.
A cooling rack is one of those pieces of kitchen equipment that you don’t think you need, but then you pick one up at a stoop sale and realize that you’ve been kidding yourself all along. You do need a cooling rack. This one comes with a sturdy half-sheet pan—and you could always use one more half-sheet pan.
Bundt cakes are what you bake when you don’t have time for the frivolity of buttercream and sprinkles: “Here, this is technically still cake. Enjoy.” But a dramatic cake pan like this Nordic Ware Lotus Bundt pan can elevate even the humblest of bakes into something festive and showy—no frosting required.
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 tin foil; just briefly warm the Bee’s Wrap with your hands, and the sheets becomes tacky and flexible. This pack comes with two medium wrappers and one big enough to swaddle a sandwich.
Chef and author Amy Chaplin counts several BA editors among her fans, including Basically editor Sarah Jampel. Chaplin’s first cookbook, At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen, won a James Beard Award in the Vegetable Focused and Vegetarian category and deserves a spot on your shelf.
Gaze into the grease stains on my old, warped baking sheets, and you’ll soon learn your fortune. Mine is that I’m getting a set of Nordic Ware baker’s quarter-sheet pans, one of BA editor Christina Chaey’s top five most useful home kitchen tools. At—you guessed it, mathletes—half the size of a half-sheet pan, a quarter-sheet pan is perfect for those tiny tasks, like toasting nuts and seeds, reheating a slice of pizza, or baking off two balls of frozen cookie dough.
