11 Most Popular Items That Kitchn Readers Bought on Amazon Prime Day
Prime Day officially blew every other Amazon sale ever out of the water. CNN reported that the fifth annual Prime Day event brought in more sales than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. More than 175 million items were purchased from countless Alexa products to millions of toys, meaning our postal workers are about to be very busy.
We’ve rounded up some of the most popular items that you, our readers, picked up during this epic event.

Take a look below.
Instant Pot Duo Plus 60, $130
Duo Plus 60 sold out, but will soon be back in stock for those of you who are experiencing the Instant Pot FOMO. Considered one of the more high-end models, it has two pressure cooker settings: high and low. That allows you to do things like make yogurt and use it as a slow-cooker, reducing the need for one more gadget in your kitchen. It also has the added perks of being able to sterilize and has a total of 15 preset functions.
Don’t overlook the power of a cooling rack. This three-tier rack lets you cool three trays at once (without taking up valuable counter space) and is collapsible for easy storage.
Get this heavy-duty (but extremely affordable!) brush and scraper and say goodbye to pesky cast iron messes. It scrubs off burnt-on messes without, well, messing with that seasoning you’ve worked so hard to develop.
Dash Rapid Egg Cooker, $15 (normally $30)
Sometimes, the machine responsible for keeping your dishes clean, needs a good clean too. These dishwasher cleaner tablets work better than bleach to penetrate, dissolve & remove odor causing residue. It also gets rid of any lime and mineral build-up that can occur inside your dishwasher.
Homstek Wool Dryer Balls, $9 (normally $17)
Many Kitchn editors tout these plastic food storage containers as their favorites. They seriously DO NOT leak, they’re clear (so you can see what’s inside), they stack, and they’re incredibly easy to clean. They will make you want to pack lunch, but be sure to not leave them behind!
Your drain is working hard — give it a good, deep cleaning with these handy sticks, which promise to tackle odors and eliminate grease, oil, fat, and anything else that may be hanging out in there.
Prime members bought over 100,000 lunch boxes over the last few days, and for good reason. This modern metal bento box makes any packed lunch feel a little more gourmet. Kids and adults alike will appreciate the layout, which ensures that nothing gets smashed or mixed together.
Amazon Basics Enameled Cast Iron Covered Dutch Oven, $33 (normally $45)
Of course Amazon makes its very own Dutch ovens! They’re good, too: This red one has 4.6 stars from reviewers. And at a fraction of the price of Le Creuset, it’s worth a shot, no?
