TODAY editors, writers and experts take care to highlight sales and deals on items that we think you’ll enjoy — and at prices we think you’ll like!
TODAY is not being paid to highlight these sales and deals, but just so you know, TODAY does have affiliate relationships. So, while every sale and deal product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.
Amazon Prime Day is here, and as we expected, the kitchen and home deals don't disappoint.
Below are a few we handpicked based on cost savings and customer reviews. Start shopping now because these discounts won't last (you can make counter and closet space later). In fact, the Instant Pot sold out less than an hour after Prime Day launched. But there are plenty of other great deals out there, like up to 30 percent off summer snacks and beverages.
The next time you can expect to upgrade your small appliances and home essentials for these prices will be in November!
Note: Many deals have time limits and prices are subject to change. We will do our best to keep them updated. But, due to the nature of Amazon Prime Day, there's a chance that once you read this article, the deals have expired or that prices will be different than what's listed below!
