The biggest day in online shopping is almost upon us: Prime Day. Yes, we can all finally stop Googling “When is Prime Day?” because we’ve received word that the highly anticipated event is just around the corner. Amazon Prime Day 2022 is officially kicking off at 3am ET on July 12 and runs through July 13, which means you’ve got plenty of time to get your wishlists ready. Whether you’re looking for gifts for your favorite home chef or kitchen finds to upgrade your own space, we guarantee that this is one epic sale you won’t want to miss, with Black Friday-level prices on popular products from big brands.

Do I Need to Be an Amazon Prime Member to Participate?

Yes, you do need to be an Amazon Prime member to score big on Prime Day. If you haven’t signed up yet and aren’t totally sure if you want to, no worries! You can sign up for a 30-day trial and decide whether or not you want to commit once the sale is over — and you may just find it to be more than worth it. With a Prime membership, you get a ton of benefits, like free two-day delivery on millions of items, exclusive discounts all year long, savings at Whole Foods, and access to Amazon Original TV shows, stand-up specials, documentaries, and movies. Once the 30-day trial period is over, membership costs $14.99/month, with discounts if you’re a student, a customer with an EBT or Medicaid card, or someone who opts in for a year-long subscription.

The Best Deals to Shop on Prime Day 2022

Although we don’t know exactly what will be on sale on Prime Day 2022, we’re confident we’ll see some amazing home and kitchen finds. Last year, we saw huge discounts on small appliances like air fryers, Vitamix blenders, toasters, and toaster ovens, as well as a range of Dyson vacuums to keep your floors clean. We even saw Le Creuset knock $70 off their cast-iron skillet grill! You’ll also likely find the best savings of the year on hot ticket Amazon devices, including Echo and AlexaKindlesFire Tablets, and Fire TVs and Sticks. While early members-only deals begin on June 21, you don’t have to wait that long because we’ve found incredible discounts on tons of editor- and reader-favorites, such as an under-$20 nonstick fry pan and the popular magnetic measuring spoons. See more of our top picks below.

This small-but-mighty machine from Keurig delivers a stronger, more concentrated brew, thanks to innovative multistream technology.

If you're on the lookout for an all-in-one appliance to save some countertop space in your kitchen, this air fryer oven is it. Using smart algorithms, it can perform up to 10 different cooking functions, including toasting, broiling, baking, roasting, reheating, and (of course) air frying. Preset settings make it super easy to use and modify depending on what you want to make. Think of it as the ultimate summer appliance for avoiding dealing with a hot stove or oven!

This upright Shark vacuum has a detachable pod so you can reach areas above the floor, such as stairs and furniture. The Anti-Allergen seal and HEPA filter ensures pollen and dander end up contained, and a brushroll shutoff allows you to switch from carpet to hard flooring in an instant. It also comes with upholstery and crevice tools so you can get into all those nooks and crannies. With its swivel steering and weighing only 12.5 pounds, it’s lightweight enough for daily cleanups and has plenty of features for a deep cleaning session, too.

This digital meat thermometer can read your food's temperature in just three seconds. The design allows you to keep your hand away from the heat while you use it and its ambidextrous backlit display allows you to easily read the temp whether you're a righty or lefty.

We highly recommend over-the-sink drying racks whether you live in a small space or not. This roll-up drying rack spreads out right over your sink so you can easily dry dishes, glasses, and bowls and allow the excess water to drip back into the sink. When you're done, just roll it up and store it — no need to take up precious counter space.

These magnetic measuring spoons made our list of favorite baking tools last year after they became an instant hit among Kitchn readers. They're the most versatile measuring tools for working with wet and dry ingredients simultaneously, and they easily magnetically snap together for fuss-free storage.

I use this under $20 frying pan nearly every day to make eggs that truly never stick. It features a speckled, slightly-textured granite surface and a super-comfortable handle that looks like wood but is actually made of Bakelite. It has a wide surface and tall sides, so you can easily make breakfast or reheat leftovers for lunch without splatter.

Several Kitchn staffers have put these towels to the test, praising their workhorse capability, long-lasting design, amazing absorbency, and more. Because they’re made from 100 percent cotton, they’re able to soak up a large amount of liquid, making them perfect for anyone who wants to cut down on paper towel use. Unlike smaller dish towels and hand towels, the Zeppoli towels are built to work and can handle even large messes. And with 15 for under $25, it's an absolute steal!

This mop absolutely shocked us when we wrote about it earlier this year — and seriously impressed Kitchn readers, too! It features a modern white body and looks much sleeker than other steam mops, and a long cord keeps you mobile enough to tackle larger spaces like a kitchen or long hallway. It's a reliable steam mop without any complicated bells and whistles that you can even use nightly if you want to.

Scoring a high-powered blender for under $100 is a deal worth raving about, especially when it's this five-speed GE find. You can alternate between the 64-ounce blender and personal cups depending on whether you're making a large batch or a small serving size. And you can depend on the durable serrated and knife-edge blades to chop through and break down tough ingredients.

Kitchn contributor and private chef, Meredith, swears by this universal lid that can fit on all of her pots and pans. It's ideal for making sunny-side-up eggs, keeping dishes warm, or just speeding up cooking by trapping steam under the lid. You can even use it to get rid of the clutter in your cabinets from the various pot lids you've collected over time.
