Amazon Prime Day is officially here, and if you're on the hunt for some Prime Day kitchen deals, there is a lot to get through. It can take a while to find a real Prime Day gem though, and you haven't got all day to scroll. Luckily, I do. As the Small Appliance and Cooking editor of Real Homes, I've spent my day scrolling through Amazon to find the very best savings on products I've tried and tested, to bring you my top recommendations.
If you're asking yourself 'is Prime Day worth it?', the answer is 'Yes!' However, not all Prime Day kitchen deals are created equal, and there are definitely some that I'd recommend skipping if you're in search of a great deal. They're not all bad though. Some of this year's deals have really impressed me, and I've genuinely never seen a couple of my favorite products at prices this low before. That includes one of the best air fryers I've ever tried, a KitchenAid at an unusually low price.
I've whittled it down ot my very top 8 picks below, and I've also included 3 of the Prime Day kitchen deals that I don't think are worth buying right now. That's not because they're bad products (in fact, I recommend all of them), but I've seen alternatives at much better prices in the Prime Day sale.
8 Prime Day kitchen deals that are worth buying
Instant Pot Vortex Plus 6-Quart 6-in-1 Air Fryer: was $159, now $99 at Amazon (save $60) (opens in new tab)
The Instant Pot Vortex Plus 6-Quart 6-in-1 Air Fryer is one of the top air fryers I've tried - and trust me, I've tried a lot of air fryers. Its ClearView cooking drawer is a game-changer, but it's also immensely quiet and intuitive to control. At under $100, I've never seen it cheaper. And yes, it's definitely worth the money.
Kitchenaid Artisan Mini Plus: was $379, now $259 at Amazon (save $120) (opens in new tab)
The Kitchenaid Artisan Mini Plus will never have the same deep discounts as other leading brands, but it rarely goes on sale, and this 32% discount is one of the best I've ever seen. It's also available across a range of colors.
Ninja OS401 Foodi 12-in-1 XL 8 qt. Pressure Cooker & Air Fryer: was $229, now $129 at Amazon (save $100) (opens in new tab)
The Ninja OS401 Foodi 12-in-1 XL 8 qt. Pressure Cooker & Air Fryer is tried and loved by our Editor Lindsey Davis, who gave it a rave five-star review. I bought it a few years ago and it transformed the way I cooked, so it's not only a great product, but at a very low price in this Prime Day kitchen deal.
Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Double Dutch Oven: was $74, now $49 at Amazon (save $25) (opens in new tab)
The Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Double Dutch Oven is always good value, but at under $50 I think this is worth buying for Prime Day. It comes pre-seasoned and is perfect for baking brad. Just make sure you keep it away from the dishwasher.
Delish by DASH Compact Stand Mixer | was $79.99, now $39.19 at Amazon (save $40) (opens in new tab)
Full transparency, I've not tried the Dash Stand Mixer. However, one of my co-workers has, and they really loved its compact size and cheery color options. I'm not sure I'd recommend buying it at full price, but there's no denying that this stand mixer is one of the best value buys of the year. And it's $10 cheaper than it was last Prime Day, so you know it's a great deal.
KitchenAid KFP1133WH 11-Cup Food Processor: was $279, now $119 at Amazon (save $160) (opens in new tab)
I was actually pretty taken aback when I saw the KitchenAid KFP1133WH 11-Cup Food Processor on sale for over half-off this Prime Day. This is a good food processor, it's one of the best ones I've tried, and it comes with two workbowls for large and small tasks.
Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender: was $629, now $399 at Amazon (save $230) (opens in new tab)
When it comes to quality blenders, Vitamix raised the bar for me. My ultimate wishlist Vitamix is only $100 off, but the Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender is just as high-quality but has $230 off. It's still expensive, but it's a lot more worth it.
Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Signature Round Dutch Oven: was $439, now $345 at Amazon (save $94) (opens in new tab)
Le Creuset deals don't come about too often, and this Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Signature Round Dutch Oven is actually pretty heavily reduced this Prime Day. It's still an investment, but now's a good time to buy if you've been eyeing up a Le Creuset piece for a while.
The Prime Day kitchen deals I don't recommend
COSORI Air Fryer Oven Combo 5.8QT Max Xl Large Cooker: was $119, now $99 at Amazon (save $20) (opens in new tab)
I really like the COSORI Air Fryer Oven Combo 5.8QT Max Xl Large Cooker. It's a great air fryer, and one of the main selling points is that you can usually buy it for under $100. This Prime Day it's no different, but with so many other air fryers on sale, this isn't the one I'd go for.
Keurig K-Slim Coffee Maker| was $129, now $59.99 at Amazon (save $70) (opens in new tab)
This one was $10 cheaper last Prime Day, and although that $70 discount seems unmissable, the Keurig K-Slim goes on sale pretty regularly. If you want it, go for it, but it's not one of the best deals of the day.
Ninja NC301 CREAMi Ice Cream Maker.| was $229.99, now $219.99 at Amazon (save $17) (opens in new tab)
I like this ice cream maker. I actually reviewed it pretty recently, and with the recent hot weather I've been using it quite a bit. Unfortunately, though, this deal is pretty meagre, and I've seen it available for less in the last few months.
