It’s no secret that Black Friday is a great time to find an Instant Pot for cheap or buy that status-y kitchenware item you’ve been holding out on. (We see you, Le Creuset). But between Black Friday sales at Walmart and Amazon, plus Black Friday discounts at Macy’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, Sur la Table, and more, there’s a lot to sort through. So we’ve rounded up some of the best Black Friday kitchen and appliance deals below in order to help you sift through and determine which ones are worth the splurge.

So far, we’ve found deals on a food-editor approved sous-vide machine, some OXO Instant Pot accessories, a beloved Zojirushi thermos, and a set of design-minded food-storage containers from Joseph Joseph. Plus there are significant discounts on a bunch of Strategist-favorite brands including Instant Pot, Le Creuset, Staub, and Cuisinart.

Read on for the best Black Friday deals on appliances and kitchen stuff that we’ve found so far, but keep in mind: If Black Friday sales history tells us anything, if you see something you like, don’t dillydally.

At this point, Black Friday is just about synonymous with Instant Pot — so to help you avoid the Black Friday Instant Pot hysteria, we’ve rounded up the best deals on four popular models. And right now, this Instant Pot Duo60 6-Quart Model is the cheapest we’ve seen it: just $49.

Based on past sales data we said that the Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi is a really good price when it dips under $100, and right now it’s $90 on Amazon, which is likely the best it’s going to get. Use your phone to make cake — or one of 750 other preprogrammed Instant Pot–app recipes — with this smart device.

If you already have an Instant Pot, or want to level up your pressure-cooker projects, add in an expert-reviewed Instant Pot accessory from OXO’s Good Grips line, like this silicone roasting rack.

This silicone steamer is another popular Instant Pot accessory for cooking and steaming vegetables.

Instant Pot doesn’t just make a multifunctional pressure cooker, though. Its blender — which we deemed to be a solid pick compared to pricier options — is only $49 at Walmart.

Half off the personal-size blender that Amanda Chantal Bacon, founder of juice and wellness brand Moon Juice, calls the “mightiest little blender.”

Ninja is known for making some of our most well-reviewed blenders, and this one also functions as a food processor for dough and frozen food.

Everyone from smoothie fanatics to home cooks agree that Vitamix blenders are among the best, and this one is $100 off (the lowest price it’s ever been).

A perennial staple in the world of stand mixers, this professional, fixed-head, 5-quart model KitchenAid mixer is now discounted to $230 at Best Buy.

At 4.5 quarts with a tilt-head, this slightly smaller and lighter KitchenAid mixer is great for home cooks with limited space, and it’s now on sale at both Walmart and Macy’s.

This manually-operated SodaStream is just $50, and it comes with an extra canister of carbon-dioxide so you can make your own seltzer at home as soon as the package shows on your doorstep.

Or, if you really want to commit to the at-home seltzer machine life, you can get this bundle at Walmart. It comes with two reusable bottles and some fruit drops.

This of-the-moment air fryer makes a good gift for any fry lovers on your holiday gift list.

If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly Dutch oven this Black Friday, $100 will get you a four-quart French Staub, now available at Bed Bath & Beyond, Food52, Williams Sonoma, Sur la Table, and Amazon. Maxine says that her (smaller) Staub Dutch oven is “one of the most-used tools in my kitchen.”


One hyperenthusiastic reviewer called this best-rated egg cooker “an EGGcellent investment,” which we can only imagine is more true now, since the cooker is half off at Amazon’s Black Friday sale.

Heat up water in style with this petite tea kettle (that also would make a great gift for a tea lover). The larger kettle from Le Creuset is also 20 percent off at Amazon and Nordstroms.

This fancy coffee grinder impressed Ashley Manson’s husband, who used to be a barista, and we’re impressed too, since it’s the cheapest we’ve ever seen it.

This set from Mr. Coffee comes with everything you need to make pour-over coffee all in one: kettle, filter, container, and pour-over contraption.

A different type of single-serve coffee maker, from Keurig, for those who prefer drip coffee to espresso.

Regardless of how you make your coffee, take it to go with this beloved thermos from Zojirushi, which is almost half-off.

A food processor can come in handy when you’re cooking for bigger groups during the holidays, or know someone who is.

Pairing knives are among the smallest in the kitchen, but when it comes to mincing garlic, peeling vegetables, or everyday chopping, they are some of the most versatile. This one from the well-reviewed and expert-recommended brand J.A. Henckels is 70 percent off.

If you’re looking for a bigger knife for day-to-day use, this chef’s knife is among the best, according to experts, and it’s currently half off at Amazon. Alison Roman, author of Nothing Fancy, called Wüsthof “a basic-bitch brand, but they do a really good job.”

This fancy chef knife from Japan is discounted over $100 on Amazon, and it’s also available for the same price at Sur la Table’s Black Friday Early Deal sale.

With nearly 500 five-star reviewers on Amazon, this seven-piece cookware set is a popular and affordable pick for cooks looking to upgrade to stainless steel—and if you use the code BLKFRI, you can score an extra 20 percent off.

This 16-piece set from well-reviewed cookware set brand, T-Fal, contains almost everything you need to stock a kitchen, including nonstick pots and pans, plus a baking sheet and utensils.

Fry up two things at once with this set of skillets.

When Maxine tested a bunch of cookware start ups to see which company made the best products for your kitchen, she concluded that Potluck Kitchenware had the best professional-grade kitchen gear. The rarely-on-sale brand has cut prices by 20 percent across their site with the code COOKMORE, meaning you can snag this Essentials Set for an even better price than usual.

The Potluck kitchen utensil set — which includes two stainless-steel mixing bowls, a colander, a wooden-spoon, and a very sharp microplane — is also 20 percent off.

These 22-piece set of food-storage containers from Joseph Joseph is the cheapest we’ve ever see, at just $30, ideal for either storing leftovers in your fridge or taking your lunch to the office.

If you’d prefer an equally colorful storage container set made from glass, this 22-piece option from Pyrex is a good deal.

Grub Street editor Alan Sytsma was a sous-vide skeptic until he made perfectly scrambled eggs, plus steak and fish, with a machine from Anova. This Wi-Fi-enabled, app-controlled model is $72 cheaper than usual, which is as cheap as we’ve ever seen it.

We’ve written about this line of non-stick, ceramic waffle makers before, and lots of reviewers report that their waffles don’t stick to the surface.
