What the Bon Appétit Staff Is Buying for Amazon Prime Day
Early Prime Day Deals Under $25 for Your Kitchen and Home
We love crispy-gone-soggy, but sometimes we also just love crispy, crispy, crispy. That‘s where air frying comes in. This basket-style fryer—one of the best air fryers according to deputy food editor Hana Asbrink—whirs hot air around your potato wedges, chicken tenders, or broccoli florets until that ASMR-level crunch is achieved.
If you’re looking for an air fryer-toaster oven combo, this stainless steel countertop convection oven is another BA favorite. It can even roast a whole chicken.
No disrespect to the plastic quart containers ubiquitous in restaurant kitchens, but glass food storage containers won‘t stain, can go straight into the oven or microwave, and are dishwasher-safe. You can never have too many.
In 2017 we boldly asserted that a fish spatula is the only spatula you need, and we stand by it. Delicate enough for lacy pancakes but sturdy enough to flip a burger, a fish spatula is a multipurpose kitchen tool that every home cook needs. Save 30% with this early Amazon Prime Day deal.
Bon Appétit’s grilling issue is currently on newsstands, and if a reliable grill is currently in your backyard, you can cook your way through these garlicky ribs and spiced tiger prawns. If not, Weber grills—both charcoal and propane—are on sale right now.
Speaking of ribs, an Instant Pot/grill one-two punch is one of our favorite preparation methods. The electric pressure cooker gets them nice and tender while the grill brings the flavorful char. In addition to tough cuts of meat, we love Instant Pots for beans (feast your eyes on these slow cooker gigante beans in tomato sauce) as well as stock and rice.
Our workhorse cutting board is a Boos block, but when you’re handling raw meat, reach for one of these plastic mats, currently 50% off. They take up almost no counter or drawer space and can be chucked in the dishwasher for easy sanitization. Plus, they each have a grippy back—so even your most butterfingered family member can chop away safely.
Heritage Italian brand Gaggia is responsible for the modern espresso machine as we know it today, and if you’re in the market for a relatively affordable manual espresso coffee maker, we recommend the Gaggia Classic Pro. But if you prefer to just push a button and go, you can expect the same Gaggia quality from the super-automatic Velasca. This is one of the best Prime Day kitchen deals we’ve seen yet: Take $400 off right now.
In the eternal words of Sisqo, sort of, “Tongs tongs tongs tongs tongs.” Prime members can save almost 30% on this 9-inch (food director Chris Morocco’s preferred tong length) and 12-inch set. They’re compatible with your favorite nonstick cookware thanks to the silicone tips.
A rice cooker is the ultimate in set-it-and-forget-it convenience, allowing you to turn your attention to mastering khai jiao instead of wondering whether your rice is burning. This Zojirushi is what we use in the BA test kitchen.
Countertop 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 our favorite sous vide machine, the Breville Joule, into your cart and you’re ready to go.
You know Lodge for its affordable but reliable cast-iron Dutch ovens, griddles, and fry pans. As far as price-to-utility ratio goes, a pre-seasoned $30 Lodge skillet is one of the best kitchen deals out there. But a $20 Lodge cast-iron skillet? True value.
Our pick for best centrifugal juicer, the Breville Juice Fountain has a built-in froth separator and a wide-mouth feed tube that can gobble whole apples.
Amazon Prime Day is when you‘ll find some of the lowest prices all year on those small appliances you‘ve been coveting, including Vitamixes. Save $60 on their E310 Explorian model, which comes with a 5-year warranty. Your smoothies will never be the same.
Commerce writer Tiffany Hopkins’ favorite kitchen gadget is her Roomba, and if you’re thinking, “That’s not a kitchen appliance,” then you’ve never seen Tiffany cook. Her robot vacuum whisks away errant sprinkles of flour, wayward nuts, and anything else that ends up on the floor. At a whopping 40% off, this is one of the best Amazon Prime Day kitchen deals currently live.
