The Season’s Hottest Appliance Gifts Are Now on Major Sale at Macy’s
The holidays will be here before you know it, which means we’ll be doing a lot of entertaining and a lot of gifting. And this weekend, we’ll be looking for deals that will help us out with both — starting with Macy’s Friends and Family Sale. Through Nov. 10, the retailer is offering up to an additional 30% off select marked-down merchandise across major categories (just use code FRIEND at checkout). There’s lots to choose from, including furniture, bedding, and bath essentials, but we’ve got our eye on the kitchen bargains, which include must-have appliances and tools that are ideal for holiday hosting or for holiday gifting. From the Instant Pot to a KitchenAid to a Nespresso coffee maker, see some of our favorite picks below.
1. KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer with Flex Edge Beater Bundle Set
A KitchenAid mixer is a kitchen classic that especially comes in handy during the holiday season (all those cakes and pies!). This Artisan Series 5-quart model has 10 speeds that make mixing, kneading, and whipping ingredients a breeze, and includes a flex edge beater attachment that reduces mixing time and the need to scrape down the side of the bowl. Looking for something a little cheaper? The 4.5 Qt. Classic Series in sleek black costs $50 less.

2. Instant Pot DUO60 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker 6-Qt
If you haven’t already, it’s time to jump on the Instant Pot bandwagon. This 7-in-1 version functions as a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer, with 14 settings for streamlining your holiday recipes and beyond. If you’ve been torn on which size to get, we think the 6-quart is ideal for meal prep or family dinners. This one also comes with a recipe booklet that will get you started on the road to Instant Pot Fandom.

3. Breville BOV450XL Toaster Oven, The Mini Smart Oven
A toaster oven is the perfect option for when you don’t want to turn on a regular oven for a solo meal. While compact in size, this Breville toaster oven can fit an 11-inch pizza or four slices of bread at a time. It has eight convenient presets like toasting, broiling, baking, roasting, cookies, and reheating to take the guesswork out of cooking. Plus, it also includes an LED display that lets you know the exact temperature of the oven.

This Ninja blender and food processor combines two kitchen essentials into one. This powerful system includes a single-serve cup, a 64-oz. bowl, and a 72-oz. pitcher for crushing ice, blending whole fruits and veggies, and even mixing dough. But, if you’re a heavy-duty blending pro, Vitamix blenders are also 20 percent off.

6. Martha Stewart Collection Enameled Cast Iron Round 6-Qt. Dutch Oven
A cast-iron Dutch oven is a useful tool for making hearty soups and stews, baking casseroles, and braising meats. Plus, it’s a beautiful serving dish to take directly from oven to the table. We love that Martha Stewart’s Dutch oven collection offers great performance at a fraction of the price of its high-end counterparts and comes in nine vibrant colors. There are also novelty options to fall in love with like this wintry pinecone-patterned oven or an autumnal 2-quart model with an adorable pumpkin knob.

7. All-Clad Stainless Steel 12″ Covered Fry Pan
This All-Clad Stainless Steel 12″ Fry Pan is such a workhorse that Kitchn’s Lifestyle Director, Lisa, even listed it in the Best Stainless Steel Skillets list. It’s a great pick for home cooks who want a pan that they can put through the ringer. It’s durable, heats evenly, has a sturdy handle and lightweight body, and doesn’t discolor too easily. At 38% percent off, it’s definitely worth snagging.

8. Crux 5.3-Qt. Digital Air Convection Fryer
Air fryers continue to be at the top of our holiday wish lists, because we can whip up our favorite fried foods with a fraction of the fat. This Crux model, with eye-catching, rose gold details, is both attractive and functional, letting you grill, roast, bake, and air fry. It also features digital controls and a convenient auto-shutoff timer.
