Hold on to your wallets, we’ve got some of the best Amazon Prime Day deals of 2020 coming in hot. While the event typically falls in July, Amazon announced just a few weeks ago (surprise!) that it would take place in October, and we’ve got a highlight of a bunch of Clever-approved products for cleaning, cooking, and decorating.
True to form, Amazon doesn’t disappoint when it comes to appealing prices on what seems like everything from furniture and electronics to decor and office supplies. Make sure you don’t take spend too much time deliberating on purchases—a lot of the best goods will sell out quick. Also keep in mind that Amazon adds new sale items throughout the 48-hour period and that its Lightning Deals expire in a matter of hours, so it might warrant checking the site periodically if you can’t seem to find that certain something on your wish list.
If you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up here and get to it! After a free 30-day trial, membership costs $12.99 a month and provides all the benefits of Prime (including bingeable design shows), plus the full slew of Prime Day items. You can shop the sale on the site, via the Amazon app, or using Alexa-enabled devices.
Okay, enough talking. The sale ends October 14 at 11:59 pm ET, and whether you’re looking for some sweet high-powered vacuums, midcentury furniture, or a smart home gadget, we’ve got you covered with a sampling of the best Amazon Prime Day Deals of 2020 for the home and kitchen.

For more than 10 years, Food52 has brought James Beard award-winning recipes to the web, sold New York Times best-selling cookbooks, and grown an online community of foodies to more than 16 million people. Needless to say, this company knows its way around a kitchen—even better than you do after six months of cooking at home.
That’s why we reached out to Amanda Hesser, cofounder and CEO of the innovative company, for inspiration and guidance as a new stay-at-home season (a holiday one, at that) awaits us. “The pandemic underlined how vital home cooking is as a source of both sustenance and comfort,” she says. “And it has forced us to adapt to a new landscape of grocery shopping and cooking all the time. People have had to try new things and figure out how to make the most of what they have on hand. Some home cooks have embraced this with gusto, which is why we’re still seeing a wave of trends like bread baking.”
Sourdough starters were just the beginning. Hesser believes that this moment marks a true cultural shift: Americans are genuinely interested in learning how to feed ourselves better for the long haul. So how to make the kitchen updates you need to embrace a fall and winter of cozy, homemade meals? Hesser recommends first getting your hands on all the zucchini, peppers, and eggplant you can before the season ends so you can make ratatouille. (It freezes well!) Then, consider investing in these six kitchen tools that can make a big difference.
Staub x Food52 Enameled Cast-Iron Braising Pan
“This is a year-round lifesaver, and it comes in handy especially in the fall because you can use it for everything from roasting chicken to making a vegetable gratin to braising short ribs,” Hesser says. This Swiss Army Knife of a pot is heritage quality. That means a lifetime of delicious, cozy one-pot meals.
Five Two Wooden Spoons
Spoons are underrated: You might not understand the value of a great wooden spoon until you’ve scratched the bottom of your favorite saucepan with a metal utensil. (Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything.) “Great-quality wooden spoons are worth the splurge,” Hesser says. “Having a go-to cooking utensil that feels good in your hand is—to me—essential to the pleasure of cooking.” These five spoons from Food52’s in-house brand have extra thoughtful design details: Each has a flattened scraping edge so you can scoop into every nook of a jar or pot, and they are made from teak—a water-resistant wood that is used on boats.
Microplane Master Series Graters
I dare you to watch this video of Microplane’s graters at work and not want to buy one. Seeing these things in action is simply satisfying. Microplane makes the best graters, hands down. “And now that we’re entering the season of pastas and baked dishes—naturally topped with lots of grated cheese—you’ve got a perfect excuse to upgrade your graters,” Hesser says.
Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten is releasing a new book of recipes this month titled Modern Comfort Food. It is the Food Network star’s 12th book, and Pure Wow describes the theme as “old-school dishes with a modern flair.” Garten has already given fans a sneak peek of her hot spiced apple cider recipe. She also shared her recipe for black and white cookies. Other anticipated recipes in the book include Smashed Hamburgers with Caramelized Onions. As well as Banana Rum Truffle and Cheddar and Chutney Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
Garten’s mission is to help her fans Cook Like a Pro. But, that doesn’t happen with just her delicious recipes. Fans also need the appropriate kitchen tools. Here are seven gadgets that Ina Garten always has stocked in her kitchen.
1. Waring Commercial Blender
When it comes to Garten’s recipes, one of the most essential tools is a quality blender. The Food Network star recommends the Waring Commercial Blender to help make everything from butternut squash to frozen daiquiris. The high-quality two-speed blender features a glass container and a chrome-plated waterfall design. It is quite pricey, but it’s worth the investment.
2. Wüsthof Chef’s Knife
Garten has told her fans repeatedly that great home cooking begins with a “good knife.” Her recommendation is Wüsthof’s classic chef’s knife. This is another quality item with a hefty price tag. But, the Barefoot Contessa swears it’s worth the money.
3. Chef’s Choice Flexhone/Strop Pro Knife Sharpener
A quality knife requires a good sharpener. Garten’s recommendation is the Chef’s Choice Flexhone/Strop Pro Knife Sharpener. It is a heavy-duty two-stage electric model for both straight-edge and serrated blades. The result is “fast, foolproof, and highly durable edges.”
4. Salter Aquatronic Glass Scale
When fans are following one of Garten’s recipes, the process is much easier with a high-quality kitchen scale. Garten’s favorite is the Salter Aquatronic Glass Scale, which is both beautiful and functional. This scale weighs both dry and liquid ingredients on its platform. And it can automatically adjust for almost any container.

5. Cuisinart Pro Custom 11-cup Food Processor
For anyone with dreams of being an at-home chef, a food processor is a must in the kitchen. Garten’s favorite is the Cuisinart Pro Custom 11-cup Food Processor. It’s a compact and versatile appliance that can chop, mince, slice, blend, shred, grate, mix, emulsify and knead. It’s large tube makes it easy to slice large fruits and vegetables. Garten regularly uses her food processor to make delish dips, sauces, and doughs.
6. Kuhn Rikon Vegetable Peeler
Garten’s favorite vegetable peeler is an affordable kitchen tool. The Kuhn Rikon Vegetable Peeler retails for under ten bucks. And it comes in a variety of colors to match your kitchen decor. This peeler uses a super sharp carbon steel blade that can cut in both directions. And, it has a potato-eye remover

They say a chef is only as good as the tools in their kitchen, and as someone who has recently developed a love of cooking, I can confirm this is 100% true. The right equipment can make or break your kitchen experience, but you don’t need to splurge to have everything you need. Some of the best kitchen gadgets are under $50, so you can stock up on a bunch and live out your chef fantasies on a budget.
Trust me, making a delicious meal is easy as long as you have the right tools to assist you. Need to do a good bit of chopping? Having the right knife and steady cutting board makes it so much easier. Not sure if your chicken is cooked through? A meat thermometer will quickly solve that problem. Plus, there are tons of fun kitchen gadgets that make cooking even more enjoyable. Unexpected, handy tools like a bread maker, a rice cooker and an air fryer will open up so many doors, allowing you to experiment even more in the kitchen. Think homemade sushi, healthy fried fish tacos, rye bread for sandwiches and so much more—all you need is enough storage space for your new tools!
Of course, gadgets and accessories are fun to play with, and can make your cooking experience more pleasant, but to really whip up a good meal, you also need to make sure your pots and pans are up to speed. You can easily get a perfect sear on a buttered scallop if you’re using a quality nonstick pan, and cast iron pans are perfect for seasoned steaks and chickens. Even if you’re looking to make something as simple as a smoothie, having the right blender will make the process much more seamless. See what I mean when I say it’s all about the tools you’ve got at the ready?
If you need to stock up, rest assured—everything you need is on this list. Read on to shop some of the best kitchen gadgets under $50 on the market, and step up your meal prep game for life.

My kitchen is filled with workhorses that I take for granted: the wooden cutting board, balloon whisk, measuring cups, microplane and razor-sharp knives. But as I’m spending even more time cooking at home during lockdown, I’m coming to appreciate all the smaller extras that I don’t strictly need, but make my cooking life easier.
After singing their praises to family and friends, I thought I’d share them with you. These are all products I actually own and use in real life and that any home cook would be happy to have in their kitchen. They’re inexpensive, versatile, easy to clean and simple to incorporate into your cooking routine (no single-use utensils like an avocado slicer or tea infuser on this list, though no shade if that’s your thing). Here are the tools I never want to be without, and how they make the act of cooking more enjoyable. Who knows, you might find your new favorite kitchen gadget on this list!

The wide, saucer-shaped bowl, long handle and pleasant weight make these beautiful spoons perfect for almost everything — eating soup, curries, rice dishes, spooning yogurt out of the tub, spooning anything out of any tub, really.
My Korean friend called them “jjigae spoons” to refer to the right utensil for eating a category of stew. In my family, they’re known as “life-changing spoons,” which is how I first convinced my family to adopt them. It’s what we still call them today. E.g., “Can you please set the table with the life-changing spoons?” I hardly ever use “regular” spoons anymore, unless all the jjigae spoons are dirty and I don’t feel like washing one.
You can buy long-handled spoons online or in many Asian markets. My personal preference is to get a set with round handles, not the thin kind with the flat ends. Prices vary, but they’re not expensive either way — say $16 for a pack of 5 good quality spoons, or even $15 for a pack of 8.
Bench scrapers, also known as pastry or dough scrapers or cutters, are typically used to pry dough off a work surface, though I use mine multiple times a day for either scraping or lifting items from my cutting board to a pan or bowl. I used to use the side of whichever knife I had in my hand, but this useful kitchen tool shovels more diced onions at a time and is safer anyway.
I’ve also used straight-sided bench scrapers, but the offset design is much easier for sliding under a pile of chopped food. It’s equally adept at its intended purpose of working with bread and pastry dough. This Tovolo bench scraper is the one I use and costs around $10.
My friend bought a fancy new dishwasher with built-in wine holders and gave me three purple silicone tubes that help keep your wine glasses safe in the machine. “Here, you like wine,” she said. “You should use these.”
