Let’s skip the preamble—the best Black Friday Amazon deals are live right here, right now, ready for your hot little fingers to press “add to cart.” You’ll find sales on top of sales across the internet this weekend, but there’s arguably no better place than Amazon to buy BA’s favorite toaster oven, the most comfortable kitchen slippers, and a pair of Apple Airpods all at the same time. (Not an Amazon shopper? We’ve rounded up all the best Black Friday kitchen and home deals from other retailers like Target, Nordstrom, and Our Place as well.) Yes I know, participating in this festival of tumultuous consumerism can be a lot. But that top-notch espresso machine isn’t going to buy itself, and you might as well save some money while you’re at it. Whether you’re on a holiday gift shopping mission (check out our gift guides if you need inspo) or you just want to treat yourself to some new cooking gear, the list below is a great place to start.
The Explorian E310 is among the most affordable Vitamix blenders on the market—and right now, it’s even more affordable for Prime members during Amazon’s Black Friday sale. This model packs 1400 watts of power and comes with a 48-ounce container that’s perfect for blending small to medium batches. We think it’s one of the best Vitamix blenders for home cooks. Curious about other Vitamix models that are on sale? Head over to our dedicated round up of the best Black Friday Vitamix deals.
You can scoop an iconic Le Creuset Dutch oven for 20% off right now; this one of the best Black Friday deals you’ll find on Amazon. This 5.25-quart round oven is deeper and slightly smaller than the classic 5.5-quart Dutch oven design, but like all Le Creusets it will last a lifetime. It’s available in a variety of colors including deep teal, flame orange, and licorice.
An air fryer is something you don’t need but absolutely want. How else are you going to master these super-crispy sesame chicken tenders and spiced potato wedges? Cosori makes some of the best air fryers in our book, including the one associate food editor Rachel Gurjar used it to develop her air fryer recipes. This model has a 6-qt. capacity and 11 cooking presets.
Kicking your single-use plastic habit is easy when you have reusable dishwasher-, microwave-, freezer-, and oven-safe silicone bags that come in pretty colors like pastel blue and bubblegum pink.
Ever wondered why your ice at home isn’t as good as the ice at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Chick-fil-A? It’s because you don’t have the GE Profile Opal Nugget Ice Maker, which churns out a pound of perfectly chewable ice every hour (and doesn’t need to connect a faucet). Save $115 today with this Black Friday Amazon deal and live that good ice life.
A notch above its Classic stand mixers, the KitchenAid Artisan Series stand mixers feature a 5-quart capacity bowl and a powerful 325-watt motor that can mix up to nine dozen cookies at once. Choose among a variety of colors including silver, cream, pistachio, and more.
With powerful suction and motorized brushes, this lightweight device transforms from a sleek and sturdy stick vacuum to a nimble handheld vac in seconds. Switch between different power modes and tool heads for optimal cleaning, then store it on its docking station when you’re done. Discounted at 20% off, this deal is holiday shopping at its best.
If you’re looking for a great toaster oven that can essentially replace your full-size oven (it can fit a quarter-sheet pan and a whole chicken), get the Breville Smart Oven Pro. It holds its temperature consistently, and it can toast, roast, bake, slow-cook, and broil.
A sleek and modern cordless hand mixer that can power through four batches of cookies without needing a recharge? Yes, please.
Test kitchen director Chris Morocco uses this pan more than any tool in his kitchen—and for good reason. It conducts heat flawlessly, it’s insanely durable, and it’s easy to clean. This weekend it’s 20% off.
Get a head start on cleanup with your new favorite cooking buddy. The Roomba i3 robot vacuum—equipped with dirt-detecting sensors, multiple sweepers, and room mapping—cleans the floors while you make dinner. This Black Friday tech deal means you’re one step closer to having the smart home of your dreams.
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 BA test kitchen for a reason: Morocco proclaims the brand’s cookware “unkillable.” We’ve seen this set, which includes a stock pot, two frying pans, two sauce pans, and a sauté pan, go on sale from time to time, but this is the lowest price of the year by about $100.
Don’t know about you, but I went through a lot of kitchen towels this Thanksgiving. While throwing my third towel in the hamper, I made a mental note to stock up. Today, these super-absorbent and lint-free towels cost just over one dollar a pop.
FoodSaver 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 the Anova Culinary Sous Vide Precision Cooker (also on sale) into your cart, and you’re ready to go.
Finally decided to get an IP but don’t know where to start? Go with the Duo Crisp, one of the best Amazon Black Friday deals this year. It’s the perfect capacity for most recipes, and it’s the only Instant Pot that can also air fry. (And if that grabbed your attention, we have all the best Black Friday air fryer deals for you as well.)
