Preparing for spring and summer cooking means rolling out the grill, dusting off the ice cream machine, and moving all the stew cookbooks to the back of the bookcase. After all, the warm weather inherently transforms cooking, where hearty soups are swapped for light, zippy salads and charred flank steaks.

To help you prepare for the changing of seasons, take a look at Amazon’s just-released gigantic list of popular kitchen appliances, one they’ve deemed essential for spring and summer. The shop is filled with heavy-duty appliances like blenders, juicers, indoor grills, and air fryers, along with smaller items like knives, storage boxes, baking equipment, and coffeemakers. Amazon has included a slew of name-brand products to peruse—think Lodge, Ninja, Vitamix, and Mr. Coffee—some of which happen to also be on sale. 

If it’s big appliances you’re after, there are plenty to choose from. Whip up all your favorite fried foods in the Ninja air fryer, which has nabbed over 19,000 five-star ratings and is currently just $100. Smoothie lovers should snap up a Vitamix, built to blend frozen berries and tough vegetables, and ice cream connoisseurs can try their hand at churning their own with the $70 Cuisinart frozen yogurt maker. One shopper even mentioned that they’re “blown away” by the capability of this ice cream maker, swearing to never purchase store-bought pints again.  

Just need a few classic cookware items to add to the collection? Nab a Lodge cast iron skillet for just $17, perfect sourdough baking with a trusty digital scale, and reduce your waste with these reusable silicone baking mats.

Keep scrolling to check out the rest of our top picks, including storage bins, knives, baking accessories, and wine glasses to guarantee you’ll be totally prepared for a season of cooking, baking, and grilling.
