Amazon Prime Day 2022: The Best Food And Kitchen Deals

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

Amazon Prime Day is a dream come true for people who like to start holiday shopping really early. Or, if you celebrate Christmas in July, it arrives at exactly the right time to get gifts at a heavy discount. The first Prime Day was on July 15, 2015, and now, it might as well be a holiday in honor of people who love to shop (via Amazon). It also serves as an excuse for people to treat themselves to an appliance they have been wanting for a long time.

In 2021, the five most popular kitchen-related purchases on Prime Day included the iRobot Roomba 692 and Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus (via Rolling Stone). Instant Pots were clearly one of the most wanted appliances of the year, as the Instant Pot Duo 6 Quart 9-in-1 was also one of Insider's top 20 products bought by readers — for a whopping 50% off the original price. 

This year, expectations are high for Amazon's Prime Day kitchen deals, which shoppers can take advantage of for 48 hours starting July 12 at 3 a.m. EDT (via Amazon).

Deals on name-brand kitchen appliances

Pricier kitchen appliances from Vitamix are usually so expensive, but on Prime Day, the brand is more accessible to home chefs. And blenders aren't just for smoothies anymore. If you need more power to blend your favorite soups or sauces, Vitamix blenders are up to 30% off on Prime Day (via Amazon). Select kitchen appliances from Braun, including hand blenders, food processors, and coffee machines, are also up to 30% off.

You're probably going to make a mess the first time you try out any new appliances, so give your pup a break from licking up spills and invest in an iRobot Roomba for 40% off. SharkNinja vacuums and steam mops are also up to 45% off. 

Speaking of messes, boxes from your Prime Day grabs may build up quickly. Toss a Slice Manual Carton Cutter into your cart to break down those boxes easier (via Amazon).

Appliances to step up your beverage game

To fuel your new kitchen adventures, an updated coffee maker may be helpful. DeLonghi has standard coffee makers and espresso machines that are up to 30% off this Prime Day. While some people prefer a more classic approach to making coffee, it can be nice to have that morning cup of joe at the push of a button. Not only do Keurigs save time, but these products have also solved the workplace pet peeve of an empty coffee pot. If your office is still dealing with this aforementioned conflict, you can fix the problem and order a Keurig on Prime Day for up to half off the original price (via Amazon).

And if the thought of drinking coffee pods makes you squirm, why not invest in the KitchenAid Burr Coffee Grinder for 20% off on Prime Day (via Food Network)? If you're more of a tea drinker, Twinings is offering 15% off on packs of K-Cups and select teas.

While coffee gets us through the morning, the afternoons call for something a bit more bubbly. Make your favorite drinks carbonated with a SodaStream, which is available for up to 40% off on Prime Day.

New cookware for a discount

It can be tough to break up with the well-used pan that got you through college, but it's time to level up your cookware set. When your pan has more scrambled eggs on it than your plate does, that's a sign to invest in a new pan that still has non-stick properties. Not only will you be able to get more food onto your plate with a new set of pans, but the aesthetics will be an upgrade over your old, mismatched set. 

Caraway has sets cookware and bakeware sets that are 20% off on Prime Day (via Amazon). GreenPan's nonstick ceramic cookware is 31% off for Prime Day, too (via Amazon).

Now that you've upgraded to a new pan, it's likely time to replace your old pot that is stained with spaghetti sauce. Make your mom proud to come over for dinner and pick up some new cookware or appliances from Calphalon for up to 40% off. If name brands aren't your thing, Amazon Basics home essentials are also 30% off.

Prime Day bakeware deals

So, you've already got an air fryer and an Instant Pot, but your bakeware could use a bit of sprucing up. In that case, there are Prime Day deals for you, too. For example, Nordic Ware's iconic Bundt pans are 32% off for Prime Day (via Amazon). The brand's baking sheets are down 16% (via Amazon), too.

And if you're looking for a stand mixer, the GE tilt-head electric stand mixer is 31% off for Prime Day, down to $204.95 (via Mashable). Need to get back to basics? A set of three KitchenAid mixing bowls is down 29% for Prime Day (via Amazon).

Prime Day includes pantry and food deals, too

This year's Prime Day deals go beyond shiny new kitchen appliances, gadgets, and new threads for your wardrobe. After all, the online bazaar is known for selling just about everything under the sun, including groceries. A number of brands are offering Prime Day snack deals, as well as discounts on everyday items to make your snacktime routines a little easier. 

The iconic Royal Dansk Danish Cookies Tins, for instance, are included in Amazon's Prime Day snack deals, amounting to around $5 for a 24-ounce tin.

And if you're someone who uses a lot of single-use Ziploc bags in their lunch and snacktime routine, Prime Day could be a great time to invest in a more sustainable option. Per Food Network, Stasher's reusable silicone bags are 30% off for Prime Day (via Amazon) — you'll save money and the environment in the long run. You can also snag a cute Bentgo bento-style lunch box for 54% off (via BuzzFeed).
