Editor's note: This article is being continuously updated with the newest deals as they're released by Amazon.

Online shopping has exploded over the last few years, and one company known for yearly sales with exclusive discounts and offers is Amazon. As of June, the mega-corporation claimed nearly 40% of all online purchases, according to Statista. The company's continued success largely stems from the inauguration of the renowned Prime membership which was announced in February 2005 at the starting price of $79 dollars for free two-day shipping on most purchased items (per Amazon).

While the Prime membership has increased over the years and now costs new members $139 per year, CNBC claims the benefits outweigh the increased cost, especially if you consider yourself an avid online shopper. Prime days became an official offering in 2015 to celebrate Amazon's 20th anniversary. Additional sales around the holidays have also become more and more prevalent. In 2022, Amazon is offering a new "Early Access" event on October 11 and 12 for Prime members to save dough on their holiday shopping hauls.

With so many celebrations around the corner, you may be resigning yourself to more time in the kitchen. Amazon is no doubt hoping you'll kick off the season of all things food by looking for deals on appliances and cooking tools a kitchen should have to streamline the process. Here's the scoop on the best kitchen-related items for Amazon's "Early Access" that are already available to Prime members.
