And as a Food & Wine editor who shops for a living, I'm constantly testing out kitchen products to find what is actually worth the hype. Which is why I'm here to do the hard work for you and share the best deals that are in my cart before one of the biggest sale events of the year: Prime Day.

Amazon Prime Day is just days away, but the retailer has already slashed prices on so many kitchen goods ahead of time. From big-name brands and splurge items to tried-and-true favorites — it is the best time to score unbeatable discounts on those pieces you've been holding out for. I've been combing through Amazon's deals for weeks, and have already found several worth adding to my cart. From sturdy nonstick All-Clad pans to a heavily marked down Vitamix, here are some of my favorite items to snag now.
