From extremely popular items like the Instant Pot and Vitamix blenders to things like pots and pans, knife sets, and even cookbooks, Prime Day is making it more affordable to take your cooking to the next level. If you're ready to stop ordering takeout every night and start creating your own meals at home, these deals are the best way to do it.
Join the Party: Instant Pot pressure cookers
The Instant Pot craze doesn't seem to be going anywhere, but the prices don't seem to be dropping either. During Prime Day 2017 and 2018, the Instant Pot was one of the most-sold items, and it was super popular during Black Friday. We saw some pretty stellar pricing during Black Friday, but that pricing has been beaten on select models this year already, and it went even lower for Prime Day.
If you see an Instant Pot deal but miss out on it, don't lose heart. While individual models do tend to sell out, Instant Pot has a dozen different lineups these days. Prime Day 2019 is bringing a huge discount on the DUO Plus 60 down to just $56, and the Smart Wifi Plus 6 for only $90. You can also try something different with the Instant Ace blender for only $90, or the Instant Pot Sous Vide for $55.
The Instant Pot going on sale on Prime Day is about as sure a thing as you can bet on these days. Which model will go on sale? We don't know that yet. Keep an eye on all of them if you're interested. The Duo Plus recently dropped as low as $55, which makes it a definite possibility for another deal during the big event.
More than a blender: Vitamix
If you want a blender that just about does it all for you, Vitamix is the way to go. Not only can it make smoothies and chop up ice, but most of them can even make hot soup. Seriously. How cool is that? What makes Vitamix even cooler is that there is a whole ecosystem of extras to go with its blenders, like cups, blades, bowls, and more.
Most Vitamix blenders usually sell for at least a few hundred dollars, and often plenty more. Prime Day makes them a whole lot more affordable.
The Vitamix 5200 is down under $300, which is an amazing discount from $550 retail. If that's still too rich fo you, you can try the entry-level Vitamix Explorian for just $180. For those who have already seen the amazing value in a Vitamix, you can pick up a replacement container for $90 too.
Make a Smoothie
Vitamix blenders are great, but they're expensive — except during Prime Day. You can get into the Vitamix family for under $200, or pick up a higher-end model at a huge discount during this event.
From shears to stand mixers: KitchenAid
You've probably heard of KitchenAid before. The company makes all kinds of kitchen-related stuff, and it's available at a variety of price points. We regularly see discounts on small blenders, food processors, and plenty of other kitchen accessories throughout the year. Since the items are at a lower cost, the discounts may not appear as huge, but they can still be quite substantial.
KitchenAid's excellent cooking accessories are all relatively cheap, but some have good discounts for Prime Day anyway — things like can openers and shears are built to last a long time, but you still don't want to overpay.
The iconic standing mixers are typically several hundred dollars, but you can get a 5-quart mixer for under $300 during Prime Day. If stand mixers are your thing, you can also keep an eye out for KitchenAid attachments like this as they regularly drop in price, too.
Shake and Bake
You probably have something from KitchenAid in your kitchen even if you don't already know it. This company makes everything from blenders to shears to giant stand mixers. The stand mixers are the best, too, and might convince you to do a bit more baking!
Coffee is Life: Keurig
It's the household brand for single-serve coffee machines, and there are some great deals on the brewers from time to time. Some of them will only hold enough water to make one cup, others will hold enough to brew several cups, but all of the K-cups are made to brew just a single cup of coffee. Over the years, the company has branched out beyond just coffee and now makes K-cups for hot chocolate, tea, and more.
If you're looking for the most basic and affordable Keurig, grab the K-Mini, which is on sale for just $50, or the K475 single-serve compact maker, which has a more modest discount but is still a good value.
If you already have a Keurig, you'll probably find great deals on K-Cups during Prime Day. Amazon actually has a brand called AmazonFresh that sells cups that work with Keurig machines. I'm positive some of those will go on sale. Most coffee makers, from Starbucks to Caribou Coffee, make packs of cups that regularly drop in price on Prime Day, too.
Keurig machines can be expensive on any other day. But not Prime Day! Well, you'll still have to pay something but it'll be a lot less than most other days. Keep an eye on the variety of models available, too, because more than one is bound to be discounted.
Take it easy: iRobot Roomba robot vacuums
Your first thought when it comes to kitchen gadgets may not be a robot vacuum, but let me tell you, it should be. Having something else vacuum for you while you kick back and relax is amazing, and Roomba's iRobot line are some of the most popular options on the market. There are a whole bunch of models available, each doing something a little different. Pricing tends to start around $300 for the most entry-level ones and goes over $1,000 for versions with all the bells and whistles.
Roomba is not the only brand in robot vacuums anymore, though. Keep an eye on Eufy, Neato, and more. If price is your primary concern, look for budget options from Ecovacs, Roborock, bObsweep, and others.
Let something else do it
The Roomba i7+ is basically the pinnacle of what robot vacuums are capable of these days, but it's $1000. Three of iRobot's more attainable models have deep discounts for Prime Day, though, and you're more likely to pick one of those up.
Never Pay Full Price: Dyson
From hand-held vacuums to corded ones, and even Wi-Fi-enabled air purifiers, Dyson is a brand that people know and trust. With that trust comes a price tag, but you can often find a decent deal if you look around or wait. Big shopping events, like Prime Day, are often a great time for Dyson related discounts to surface, and this year is no exception.
You can get one of many Dyson fans for under $200 with a size and shape for each type of application. Its incredible Dyson Ball vacuum is down to $350, and the compact and versatile Dyson V7 Animal Pro+ vacuum is only $280.
Get Rid of the Dirt
Everyone wants a Dyson, but no one wants to pay for one. The key to finding an awesome Dyson vacuum is to wait for a big sale like Prime Day. You can pick up excellent vacuums or fans for palatable prices yo uwon't find any other time of year.
