I don’t know about you, but I’m not rushing to make any specific New Year’s resolutions this year. I am using this opportunity to take stock of what’s working (or not) in my home, though, and the best place to start is everyone’s favorite spot: the kitchen. Equipping your kitchen with the right tools is one of the easiest ways to become a more efficient meal prepper and cook. If you’ve got plans for either, you won’t want to miss the massive Macy’s post-Christmas sale

A huge array of kitchen items, including small appliances, cookware, and storage solutions, are up to 70 percent off right now, so you can get what you need to get organized, stay inspired, and save money. (Now those are some resolutions worth getting behind!) We’ve rounded up a few of the deals that caught our attention, but be sure to check out the complete sale, which is running through January 3.

If you’ve yet to discover the fast and crunchy goodness of air frying, you can jump right in and save $50 on this air fryer toaster oven from Cuisinart. Its design resembles a more traditional toaster oven, and it comes with a mesh basket and a roasting pan so that you can air fry, bake, toast, roast, and even broil. Since the Cuisinart circulates super-hot air throughout the cooking chamber, it heats up and cooks more efficiently than most wall ovens, and you can even get away with using way less oil.

Chances are your everyday nonstick pan could use an upgrade. This incredibly versatile, 8.5-inch nonstick skillet from Anolon will be your go-to for making fluffy omelets, searing protein, or sauteing veggies. The size is perfect for preparing several servings, and since its PFOA-free surface releases food easily, you won't need to use a ton of oil to keep food from sticking. The highly conductive, durable anodized aluminum pan can be used in the oven up to 400 degrees.

If you’re looking for a blender that will actually save you time in the kitchen, check out this super-smart, multifunctional machine from the team behind the Instant Pot. The Instant Ace has eight one-touch programs for making smoothies, nut milks, frozen treats, and — thanks to a built-in heating element and glass pitcher — even hot soups. If you prefer, you can manually control the blender’s ten speeds to gently stir or quickly blitz ingredients, and options like delay start, keep warm, and clean help you power through meal prep and cleanup.

If you like to batch-cook grains or keep cut fruit on hand for snacking, this set of storage containers from Joseph Joseph will help you stay on top of ingredient prep and meal planning. Each of the five BPA-free polypropylene containers comes with a locking, leak-proof lid for storing items in the fridge or freezer, and they clean up easily in the dishwasher. When not in use, the containers and lids nest neatly together for space-saving storage.

Whether you want to make cauliflower rice, nut butter, ice cream, or purees, this eight-cup food processor from Cuisinart can handle whatever you throw at (er, in) it. The 350-watt machine comes with reversible slicing and shredding discs, so you can make quick work of cheese or veggies for recipes, snacks, and salads. The wide-feed chute makes it easy to add oils when you're mixing dressings.

Chopping and washing your greens at home instead of buying the pre-packaged stuff not only keeps them fresher longer, it can also be more economical. OXO’s salad spinner has made our Kitchn Best List more than once, and right now it’s over $20 off. The roomy basket fits just shy of five quarts of greens, so you can make quick work of a head of romaine or a bunch of fresh kale from the farmers' market. Plus, after you’ve washed and spun your greens, you can compress and lock the spinner’s knob and pop the whole setup in the fridge for storage.

Whether you start your day with warm lemon water or French press coffee, you need this electric kettle from Cuisinart. The cordless, 1.7-liter unit lets you choose between six temperatures, ranging from 160 degrees to a rolling boil. It also has a keep-warm function that maintains your water’s temperature for 30 minutes, so you can pour multiple servings without having to restart it. On-demand hot water has a ton of other culinary uses, too, including rehydrating dried mushrooms, making medicinal teas, and blooming cocoa powder.

If you don’t want to choose between the super-fast, ultra-tender cooking method that is pressure cooking and the crispy, crunchy texture you get from an air fryer, you’re in luck: this brilliant machine from Ninja does both and then some. The 6.5-quart cooker is equipped with nine functions that let you pressure cook, slow cook, steam, saute, bake, roast, and make yogurt. Or attach the included crisping lid to convert the setup into an air fryer to add texture and crispiness to snacks or meals. With capabilities to serve as a dehydrator or broiler, too, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more versatile, time-saving piece of kitchen equipment.

When you consider all that is included with this juicer from Nutribullet, it’s a serious value at under $130. The powerful, 1,000-watt motor has three speeds — low, high, and turbo — that are optimized to help you extract the most juice from whatever you place in the chute, whether it's dense carrots, moisture-rich citrus, or leafy greens. The 27-ounce pitcher will hold enough juice for multiple servings, which you can opt to store for later in one of the two glass to-go bottles. Two freezer trays are also included for making flavorful juice cubes to enhance water and other drinks. Pro tip: don’t toss the pulp. You can use it to make crackers, muffins, and (stay with me) the crispiest cauliflower pizza crust.
