Our 2018 Amazon Prime Day wish list

The Daily Meal

Like you, we love to cook (or at least eat) ... but all the gadgets and gizmos you need to take your cooking to the next level can be expensive. That's one reason to take advantage of Amazon Prime Day: there will be tons of great deals on otherwise pricey kitchen essentials (and fun stuff, too).

Here are some of the products every home should have in their kitchen. If you see them on sale, it's smart to buy early, as cooking gear tends to be one of the most popular categories on Prime Day (and items sell out quickly).

Our sister website, BestReviews, has helped put together this list of products that they have researched extensively and even tested many of them in their own space to make sure the products live up to manufacturers' claims. You can feel confident spending your money on these items.

Dehydrator

Preserve all that fresh summer produce by making dried fruit, or try your hand at homemade jerky. The possibilities are endless with a dehydrator!

Instant Pot

Now's the time to donate all those random, worn-out appliances and get this all-in-one wonder. It was one of the most popular deals last year, and they sold out fast. Shop early if you want to snag one this year.

Espresso Machine

This appliance can be quite pricey, so it's good to buy one on sale. Think of all the extra cash you will save by making your own coffee in the morning instead of buying that $5 cup from the cafe!

Blender

Prime Day is the day to splurge on a fancy blender. Not only will it whip up smoothies, sauces, dressings, and poolside beverages, a premium blender like a Vitamix can turn a creamy soup recipe into restaurant-caliber bowls of smooth perfection.

Wine Glasses

Speaking of beverages, Prime Day should have some great deals on fancy new wine glasses. The right glass can really bring out the depth of flavor in your favorite red, white, or bubbly.

Air Fryer

Trying to cut back on calories and fat but love that crispy crunch of fries? We love the results air fryers produce on everything from potatoes, meat, and even bananas.

Cookware Set

If you have a random assortment of cheap pots and pans, or the nonstick coating is scraped off yours, it's time for a new set. Prime Day is sure to offer deals on nice ones, from copper to nonstick.

Ice Cream Maker

Last, but certainly not least, we hope to score a deal on the ultimate summertime treat... an ice cream maker! Having one lets you concoct all sorts of creamy treats. Who knows, you might just invent the best new ice cream flavor of the summer!
