The right kitchen tools do more than just clutter pantry shelves; they open up an entire world of culinary possibilities.
Cue: making handmade pasta for the first time, letting a stew simmer all day (unattended!), and swapping your breakfast buttered toast for a vitamin-packed smoothie. Often though, these cooking must-haves cost a pretty penny. That’s where Amazon Prime Day comes in. Almost a national holiday in its own right (especially for home enthusiasts), the e-commerce giant’s annual sale is great for stocking up on more than flat-screen TVs and yet another Kindle.
From cookware and new plates to small appliances and coffee machines, Amazon is quietly becoming a go-to destination for all things gourmet cooking. In fact, the retailer has single-handedly popularized cult-favorite appliances like the Instant Pot, in addition to stocking respected brands like KitchenAid, Le Creuset, Vitamix, and more.
