The holidays may be wrapping up, but there are still deals available. In fact, this week (the one between Christmas and New Year’s) offers some great year-end sales. And they’re worth checking out if you’re wanting to buy something for yourself, need to get a gift for an upcoming holiday or celebration, or are just getting a rather incredible head start on next year’s holiday shopping. 

We rounded up our favorite kitchen-related sales happening right now—most of which have won our equipment reviews.

Anova Precision Cooker

Normally $219, Now $139

Our favorite sous vide machine with an onboard display (for those worry about WiFi signals cutting out and ruining dinner) is 41% off at the moment. We found it to be easy to use and accurate—essential for an immersion circulator. For those than want an app-compatible machine, it does that too.

Anova Precision Sous Vide Vacuum Sealer

Normally $80, Now $60 at Amazon and Anova Culinary

Our compact vacuum sealer pick is easy to store and simple to use, as it just has three buttons. It comes with 10 pre-cut bags and has no refractory period (that’s the time in between sealings!).

Anova Precision Vacuum Sealer Pro

Normally $150, Now $100 at Crate & Barrel and Anova Culinary

This is our favorite overall vacuum sealer and for good reason: not only does it seal exceptionally well (for both dry and wet items), it has a host of great features. We think you’ll appreciate its cord storage and bag storage and cutter. Like the smaller Anova, it has no refractory period.

Instant Vortex Plus 6-Quart Air Fryer

Normally $160, Now $130

Our favorite air fryer is $30 off at the moment. After testing 11 models, the Instant came out on top for its speed, usability, and performance. It browned the quickest and most evenly out of all the air fryers we tested and we loved its control knob that allowed us to easily scale up and down the time and temperature. If you’ve been wanting an air fryer, why not get the best one at a great price?

Cuckoo Rice Cooker and Warmer

Normally $113, Now $81

With a number of cooking presents, an attractive exterior, great performance, and a range of customization, the Cuckoo is one of our favorite rice cookers (and we tested 11 of them). Right now, it’s 28% off.

Ratio 6 Coffee Maker

Normally $345, Now $295 at Amazon and Food52

If you want a coffee maker that truly brews the best coffee, then Ratio 6 is the one to get—at least according to our tests. It has a large spray head that evenly saturates the brew bed, a thermal carafe, and a sleek appearance.

Yosukata Carbon Steel Wok Pan

Normally $70, Now $60

This heat-treated wok is our pre-seasoned pick. We found it to be heat responsive, have a slick surface, and liked its helper handle and wooden handle that stayed cool to the touch.

KitchenAid Full-Size Dish Rack

Normally $85, Now $68

Our favorite dish rack is super solidly constructed and fits a whole lot of dishes without nary a plate wobbling. Its side walls are tall and supportive and its mat can be removed for easy cleanup. A truly great dish rack is one of those little luxuries you didn’t know you were missing until you have it.

Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0

Normally $400, Now $225 at Solo Stove

We really, really liked this fairly smokeless fire pit from Solo Stove when we tested it (and the grill hub, which is also on sale) this past summer. It was easy to set up, burned very efficiently, and was a cinch to clean. And right now, it’s $175 off.

Coffee Gator French Press Coffee Maker

Normally $55, Now $46

Our affordable French press pick is nearly $20 off (just clip the coupon before adding it to your cart). It features a layered stainless steel body that keeps coffee hot for a long period of time and its dual filter does a good job at keeping grit and sludge out of your cup. Fun fact: the Coffee Gator is also one of our favorite cold brew makers.

Spinn Pro Coffee Maker

Normally $979, Now $749

We were impressed by the Spinn Coffee Maker’s ability to brew fully automated versions of espresso and cold brew instantly, and its version of drip coffee wasn’t bad either. It uses a centrifugal brew chamber attached to a built-in grinder, allowing for the convenience of one-touch capsule brewing while being able to still choose your own favorite whole bean coffee. Its biggest downside is the price, and at 30% off, it’s worth taking a look at.

Hedley & Bennett Essential Apron

Normally $85, Now $72

This sturdy apron that sports a trio of pockets is currently on sale in the orange, Jalapeño color. There are also a variety of other aprons at discounted prices on the Hedley & Bennett website.

Ooni Koda 16

Normally $800, Now $600

When we reviewed Ooni ovens earlier this year, the Koda 16 impressed us with its performance and usability. It has an extra-large opening, so it can accommodate bigger pies, and a control panel and gas hook-up on the right side of the oven (most Oonis have this at the back)—an accessible placement.

MIU Fish Spatula

Normally $30, Now $26

With a smooth, grippy handle and a more offset head, this fish spatula is a top-notch pick for flipping burgers and fish. In fact, it’s one of our three favorite fish spatulas (and we tested 12 of them).

Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender

Normally $350, Now $290

While this is not our favorite Vitamix blender, if you’re looking for a smaller, starter Vitamix, this is a good one to check out. It has a manual interface, 10 different speeds, and, again, is fairly compact. We recommend it over Vitamix’s other small model, the ONE.

ThermoWorks Thermapen ONE

Normally $99, Now $79

Our favorite instant-read thermometer is lightning-fast, incredibly accurate, packed with helpful usability features like an auto-rotating screen and auto-backlight, and 25% off (30% off if you buy two or more).
