Let’s skip the preamble – the best Black Friday Amazon deals are live here, right now, ready for your hot little fingers to hit “add to cart”. You’ll find sales on top of sales this weekend, but there’s probably no better place than Amazon to buy BA’s favorite toaster oven, the comfiest kitchen slippers, and a pair of Apple Airpods all at once. (Not an Amazon shopper? We’ve rounded up the best Black Friday kitchen and home deals from other retailers like Target, Nordstrom, and Our Place.) Yes, I know, participating in this festival of tumultuous consumerism can a lot. But that premium espresso machine doesn’t buy itself, and you might as well save some cash while you’re at it. Whether you’re looking for gifts for the holidays (check out our gift guides if you need some inspiration) or just want to treat yourself to some new cooking gear, the list below is a great place to start.
The Explorian E310 is one of 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 is rated at 1400 watts and comes with a 48 ounce container that is perfect for mixing small to medium batches. We think it’s one of the best Vitamix blenders for home cooks. Curious about other Vitamix models on sale? Check out our special roundup of the best Black Friday Vitamix deals.
You can now score an iconic Le Creuset casserole with a 20% discount; this is one of the best Black Friday deals you can find on Amazon. This 5.25 liter round oven is deeper and slightly smaller than the classic 5.5 liter Dutch oven design, but like all Le Creusets it will last a lifetime. It comes in a variety of colors, including deep teal, flame orange, and licorice.
An airfryer is something you don’t do need but absolutely want. How else are you going to master these super crispy sesame chicken and spiced potato wedges? Cosori makes some of the best air fryers in our book, including that one associate food editor Rachel Gurjar who used it to develop her air fryer recipes. This model has a 6-qt. capacity and 11 cooking presets.
It’s easy to kick your single-use plastic habit when you have reusable, dishwasher, microwave, freezer, and oven safe silicone bags that come in pretty colors like pastel blue and bubble gum pink.
Have you ever wondered why your ice cream at home isn’t as good as the ice cream at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Chick-fil-A? It’s because you don’t have the GE Profile Opal Nugget Ice Maker, which makes a pound of perfectly chewable ice cream every hour (and doesn’t have to plug in a tap). Save $115 today with this Black Friday Amazon deal and live that good ice cream life.
KitchenAid’s Artisan Series stand mixers are a notch above classic stand mixers and feature a 5-quart capacity bowl with a powerful 325-watt motor that can mix up to nine dozen cookies at a time. Choose from 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 an agile handheld vacuum in seconds. Switch between different power levels and attachments for optimal cleaning, then store it in the docking station when you’re done. With a 20% discount, 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 fits a quart pan and a whole chicken), get the Breville Smart Oven Pro. It keeps its temperature constant and it can roast, roast, bake, slow cook and roast.
A sleek and modern cordless hand mixer that can handle four batches of biscuits without charging? Yes please.
Test kitchen director Chris Morocco uses this pan more than any other utensil in his kitchen – and for good reason. It conducts heat flawlessly, it’s incredibly durable and it’s easy to clean. This weekend it’s 20% off.
Start cleaning up with your new favorite cooking buddy. Equipped with dirt sensing sensors, multiple sweepers and room mapping, the Roomba i3 robot vacuum cleans the floors while you eat. This tech Black Friday deal means you’re one step closer to the smart home of your dreams.
Do you know someone who needs a set of pots and pans forever? Do you really like that person? (Are you that person?) 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 soup 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 at around $100.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been going through a lot of kitchen towels this Thanksgiving. As I tossed my third towel into the hamper, I made a mental note to stock up. Today, these super-absorbent and lint-free towels cost just over a dollar each.
FoodSaver vacuum sealers are great if you’re buying in bulk and want to make sure 60 chicken thighs don’t get freezer burn. But they are also an essential tool if you want sous vide. Throw the Anova Culinary Sous Vide Precision Cooker (also on sale) in your shopping cart and you’re good 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 caught your eye, we’ve got the best Black Friday air fryer deals for you, too.)
