Kitchen deals are continuing to drop every hour during Amazon Prime Day, though we're seeing things slowing down. With the event taking place from June 21 through June 22 (as in today), it can be overwhelming to sift through all the deals to find the ones worth buying.

That’s why we turned to our team for their favorite can’t-live-without kitchen items like a SodaStream for endless sparkling water and a kitchen scale that comes in clutch for baking—all of which happen to be on sale during Prime Day. Our shopping strategy has always been to buy things we absolutely need instead of just what we want, and after years of using these tools, we know you’re going to need ‘em.

Here are the best Prime Day kitchen deals on our favorite tools, gadgets, and appliances you can still shop.

1. KitchenAid Citrus Squeezer, $19.99 $13.99

If you plan on making lemonade this summer, you’ll need a citrus squeezer like this. It’s easy to use and clean, and nearly as low as it was back in 2019, too.

2. Ninja FD401 Foodi 8-Quart 9-in-1 Deluxe XL Pressure Cooker, $249.99 $141.54

This is the lowest price ever for Ninja’s popular all-in-one appliance—it’s a pressure cooker, air fryer, steamer, dehydrator, and more. It’s a worthwhile investment, and one that’ll replace a handful of gadgets that do the same thing.

3. Breville Joule Sous Vide, $249.95 $159.95

Sous vide is a fun way to cook meat and fish at precise temperatures. It takes a few extra minutes to set up a water bath, but once you’re done, the sous vide stick takes over and guarantees everything is cooked just right. And the Wi-Fi capability means you can keep an eye on things even if you’re in the living room—which I’ve definitely done while catching up on Schitt’s Creek. At more than 35 percent, it’s not the lowest we’ve seen, but still a worthwhile gadget in the kitchen.

4. iRobot Roomba 694 Robot Vacuum, $274 $229.99

This isn’t technically a kitchen gadget, but we use it most often there—it’s so handy to have it around while prepping meals and catching bits of onion that fall onto the floor. It can detect high-traffic areas in your space (like the kitchen!) and clean it more thoroughly, and you can use the app to schedule cleaning sessions, too. This is the lowest price we’ve seen, and iRobot Roombas are notoriously expensive, so you might want to snag this before Prime Day ends.

5. Dash DCAF200GBAQ02 Tasti Crisp Electric Air Fryer, $59.99 $39.99

Yours truly has a decent collection of Dash appliances and I’m ready to add another one. If you’re finally ready to dive into the world of crispy fries and wings at the push of a button, look no further than Dash’s cute-as-a-button air fryer. Only the aqua and black colors are on major sale, but if you don’t mind, you’ll be getting the lowest price ever.

6. KitchenAid Classic Multifunction Can Opener, $14.99 $10.66

Even though I have two of these in my kitchen, I can never find one when I need it, so I’m adding this to my cart. And before you say that every can opener is the same, know that this one hasn’t rusted despite multiple runs in the dishwasher and turns easily and cleanly without leaving sharp edges—two things that no other can opener I’ve used before has been able to accomplish.

7. Rubbermaid Airtight Food Storage Containers, $19.99 $11.36

I use these air-tight containers in my pantry for everything—cereal, pasta, dry beans, flour, you name it. The containers are clear so you can easily see through and the snap-lock lids are super secure. There are several sizes on sale so you can get just the ones that’ll fit your pantry needs.

8. SodaStream Fizzi Sparkling Water Maker, $89.99 $47.49

I bought two SodaStream machines during Prime Day a few years ago (in case one broke) and they’ve been one of my favorite kitchen gadgets ever. It’s so easy to make my own sparkling water and has saved me a ton of money on store bought drinks over the years. At nearly 50 percent off, the price is almost as low as it was back in 2019 and includes the machine, a Co2 cartridge, and a reusable carbonating bottle.

9. Takeya Patented Deluxe Cold Brew Coffee Maker, $24.99 $15.99

If you can’t function before coffee (I feel ya, friend), you might want to take advantage of our favorite cold brew maker. I've used mine for more than three years and have bought several as gifts. It’s nearly 40 percent off, making it even more affordable than its historic low in March this year.

10. KitchenAid All Purpose Shears, $9.99 $5.59

Kitchen shears are one of the most-used items—they can cut through meat, small bones, fruit, annoying packaging, you name it. I use it at least once during meal prep and once I’m done, I just toss it into the dishwasher. At this price, it’s worth stocking up on.

11. Contigo 72952 Vacuum-Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug, $14.99 $8.95

Select colors of the insanely-popular Contigo travel mug are up to 40 percent off—I have three in rotation between work, weekends, and traveling. It keeps my drinks hot or cold for hours and doesn’t leak—it even has a locking mechanism in the lid to prevent accidents. It’s slightly more expensive than its historical low in 2019, but given its durability and reliability, it’s been worth every penny.

12. Instant Pot Duo Nova 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, $79.99 $49.95

Instant Pots are up to 50 percent off during Prime Day, making this 3-quart version very budget-friendly. Use it as a pressure cooker (obviously), slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sterilizer, and more—it’s ridiculously versatile. The 3-quart model that's on sale is perfect for serving one to two people.

13. Dash Deluxe Rapid Egg Cooker, $29.99 $19.99

This little gadget does one thing but it does it so well. It cooks eggs however you like and takes up no more space than a roll of paper towels. It’s a few dollars more than its lowest price back in 2019, but it’s been worth every penny since I bought it then. It sits on my counter and gets used at least four times a week for quick and easy breakfasts.

14. Stasher Platinum Silicone Food Grade Reusable Storage Bag, $12.99 $9.09

If you’re trying to avoid single-use plastic bags for food storage, I couldn’t recommend Stasher bags more. They work just like zip-top bags but are made with food-grade silicone so they’re reusable and more durable—they can even be used to sous vide. That also means they’re more expensive, but during Prime Day, they’re all 30 percent off—we suggest getting a bundle to save even more. Oh, and did we mention they're dishwasher safe?

15. Etekcity Food Kitchen Scale Bowl, $18.99 $15.93

Our assigning editor’s favorite food scale is almost 20 percent off during Prime Day, the lowest price it’s ever been. If you love baking, a simple food scale can be the difference between perfect and too-dense cakes.

16. Amazon Basics Silicone, Non-Stick, Food Safe Baking Mat, $14.10 $9.24

If you love to bake, there are a ton of Amazon Basics tools and gadgets on sale during Prime Day, including these baking mats. I use these to line baking trays and prevent food from sticking—it also makes for much easier clean up.

17. COSORI Smart WiFi Air Fryer, $119.99 $79.79

Air frying is a great way to cook crispy foods like fries and wings quickly and without the extra oil—or worse, the oil splatter on your kitchen countertops. And with this Wi-Fi-enabled appliance you don’t even have to be in your kitchen to cook a delicious meal. At more than 30 percent off, it’s the lowest since 2019—perfect timing for all the wings you'll eat during BBQ season.
