Le Creuset. All-Clad. Staub. Do we have your attention yet? The Amazon Prime Day cookware deals are very good this year—something about supply chain disruptions and excess inventory, I don’t know. Amazon Prime Day 2022, which is technically Prime Days, is today and tomorrow. It’s a smart time to upgrade your pots and pans, from the nonstick egg pan that isn’t so nonstick anymore to the name brand Dutch oven you’ve gazed at longingly, whispering “someday.” (And if you’re looking for more home and kitchen deals as well as tools and pantry items for under $25, we have you covered.)
Here are the basics of Amazon Prime Day deals: Some items will be on sale all day today. Elusive Lightning Deals will pop up for six-hour periods and sell out quickly, so be sure to check back as we update this post with what is currently on sale. All retailer sales and coupons will be automatically applied at checkout and are available to Prime members. Without further ado, here are the best Amazon Prime Day cookware deals to shop and shop hard. All the good stuff, none of the fluff.
“This is the pan you will never get bored of, cannot destroy, and will never let you down,” food director Chris Morocco says of All-Clad’s frying pan. This 10-piece set includes that fry pan, sauté pans, a stockpot, and more. This is an excellent deal (41% off) on professional-quality pans that you (or perhaps a recent graduate) will use forever. For-eh-ver.
