I Shop for a Living, and These Are the Kitchen and Home Items I'm Buying During Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day, one of the biggest shopping events of the year, is finally here, and with it a slew of deals in just about every category, whether you're searching for some seriously good deals on knives or are looking to upgrade your cookware to All-Clad. As a shopping writer, I've spent the day combing through all the best kitchen and home deals, plucking out all the items I'll be adding to my cart, and shopping for myself.
I've narrowed my focus to some of my favorite brands, like Lodge, Le Creuset, Vitamix, and GreenPan, and this year there are a ton of not-to-be-missed markdowns on top-rated air fryers, coffee makers, knives, storage containers, and cast-iron cookware. Keep scrolling to check out everything I'm shopping during Amazon Prime Day 2021, with prices starting at just $6.

Prime Day is often the best time to splurge on the top-rated appliances many home cooks rely on. If you still don't have an Instant Pot, don't miss out on the Duo Nova—priced at just $50—which can be used to prepare everything from big-batch meals to hearty soups. Instant Pot is also running a deal on its air fryer for 35% off if you're looking to experiment with convection baking. I'll also be adding a Vitamix to my morning smoothie routine—and this one is 36% off until tomorrow. Plus, I've been eyeing the beloved Zojirushi rice cooker for months, which is consistently recommended to me for wonderfully fluffy rice.

On the cookware and tools front, there's plenty I've been waiting to finally hit pay on. My knives are old and chipped, and the top-rated J.A. Henckels International 15-piece set is guaranteed to switch up my chopping game for good. As someone who lacks outdoor space, my summer of grilling indoors will actually be successful once I finally get a Le Creuset grill pan, which is designed to leave perfect charred marks on meat and vegetables. I'm also looking to upgrade some peeling cookware with the GreenPan 4-piece ceramic set that includes all the basics like a nonstick skillet and sauté pan.

Now that I'm spending more time out of the house, I finally have reason to let a robot vacuum loose to tend to the kitchen while I'm gone. A $200 iRobot Roomba is a steal, especially since it comes with all the high-tech bells and whistles like adaptive navigation and a three-stage cleaning system. I also can't pass up the opportunity to nab more reusable Stasher bags——an adored and well-used product in my household——as well as a new set of pillows that shoppers say are "just like the ones from hotels."
