We can't believe we're saying this, but the biggest shopping days of the year are almost here. Black Friday and Cyber Monday welcome some of the best deals of the year on our favorite items, like coffee and espresso machines, pizza ovens, air fryers, small kitchen gadgets, and more. It's also a great time to shop for gifts for everyone on your list.
Some Black Friday deals remain top-secret until the day of—November 25—but plenty of other brands have already started marking down appliances, cookware, kitchen gadgets, and other holiday gifts for foodies. Here are some of the best prices we've found so far, updated constantly as those days approach.
Ahead, the best early Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
There are a ton of deals to sift through, so we call out our top picks here:
Meater Plus Meat Thermometer
Normally $100, Now $80
The Meater is our top pick for wireless grill thermometers because of its convenience and accuracy. This will impress any grill master (or aspiring grill master) out there with an easy-to-use app that lets you monitor your meat from afar and gives you accurate time estimates for how much longer your meat needs to cook. Grilling for a crowd? The MEATER Block features four probes and a convenient block to hold them all—and it's also on sale right now.
Lenox Portola 65-Piece Flatware Set
Normally $190, Now $138
If you're looking to gift a newly married couple or recent graduate a set of silverware—or to replace your own worn-out forks and spoons—now's the time to do it. Lenox's Portola pattern was our flatware home tester's favorite, thanks to its design that's distinctive enough for a formal dinner party but not overly frilly for everyday use. These utensils are fully dishwasher-safe, and the 65-piece assortment includes five-piece silverware sets for a dozen diners, plus two large serving spoons, a serving fork, sugar spoon, and butter spreader.
Roccbox Portable Pizza Oven
Normally $499, Now $399
The original high-powered pro-level pizza oven adapted for home use is on sale for the first time in its maker's history! The Roccbox is portable, can be used with propane or wood, and reliably delivers the intense heat necessary for great Neapolitan-style pizza. (We also love the Roccbox's even fancier cousin, the Gozney Dome, and if you buy one for the holidays, you'll get a free cover and pizza peel.)
Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro
Normally $500, Now $320
With an array of automated functions, Breville's Smart Oven series lives up to its name, and this powerful model adds air frying capacity on top of everything else. It can crisp up some french fries as easily as it can roast a small turkey, toast bread, broil salmon, bake pizza, or even slow-cook a pot of beans.
KitchenAid Professional 5 Plus Series Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer
Normally $500, Now $270
When it comes to stand mixers, KitchenAid is the gold standard. The brand took the top spot in our Lab testing, but its heavy-duty mixers are a major investment. If you've been thinking about getting one, now's the time: You can save an astonishing $230 on this high-capacity model. It lifts the bowl into place under the motor head, which makes it more stable than tilt-head models. This model also includes an upgraded Flex Edge beater, whose silicone blade edge does a better job at scraping the sides of the bowl.
Keurig K-Café Single Serve Coffee, Latte & Cappuccino Maker
Normally $190, Now $159
Keurig coffee machines are super convenient and brew consistent coffee with no guesswork, but a knock against them is that all they can do is make plain old coffee. The K-Café solves that problem, which is part of the reason it was the top choice in our Lab tests of Keurigs. The machine includes a milk frother to make proper steamed dairy for lattes and cappuccinos, and it even has an espresso machine-like arm attachment that lets you pull concentrated "coffee shots" using standard K-Cups.
All-Clad d5 Brushed Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set
Normally $1,430, Now $700
Are you a serious cook ready to upgrade to professional-level pots and pans? Here's your one-stop shop. With five layers of alternating steel and aluminum designed for optimally even heating, All-Clad came up one of our top choices in two different sets of cookware tests. The brand's prohibitive price is usually a barrier, but this 10-piece set—three pans, three pots, and four lids—is on sale now for more than half off.
Oster Countertop Toaster Oven
Normally $180, Now $160
Going far beyond just a basic toaster, this Oster was the Lab's top pick in our tests of countertop ovens. It's huge—big enough to roast a whole large chicken, bake two 16-inch pizzas, or toast 18 slices of bread—but its convection heating system controls the temperature evenly and precisely. It's also 50 percent more energy-efficient than a standard wall oven.
Our Place Always Pan
Normally $145, now $95
Though it's only been on the market a few years, the distinctive Always Pan has rapidly become a favorite for fashionable foodies. The versatile nonstick skillet has high sides that let it work as a saucepan, with a locking lid for braising. It even comes with a steamer insert, and a wooden spatula that fits into an integrated spoon rest in the handle. The main problem? Its high price. Which you can worry less about during this great sale.
Nespresso Gran Lattissima Coffee and Espresso Machine
Normally $650, Now $454
The winner of our Nespresso machine test, the Nespresso Gran Lattissima is truly a standout machine—and it's the perfect time to splurge because you can save nearly $200.
Knork Original Collection Cutlery Utensils
Normally $130, Now $80
This sleek cutlery set, featuring a tablespoon, teaspoon, salad fork, dinner fork, and knife for four, doesn't just have a modern look; its design helps weight the utensils and fit the contours of the hand to be more comfortable to hold. The 18/10 stainless steel material is strong, long-lasting, and dishwasher-safe, and the forks even feature a beveled edge on both sides so they can cut foods when wielded left- or right-handed.
Hario Buono Stovetop Kettle
Normally $67, Now $43
Japanese brand Hario makes equipment for coffee and tea connoisseurs, and its Buono kettle is iconic among devotees of pour-over coffee. This is a beautiful piece of countertop design, but it's not just about the modernist look; the small kettle is designed to boil water quickly, and its long gooseneck spout pours a controlled stream without spillage.
Magic Mill Food Dehydrator Machine
Normally $190, Now $150
You can turn fresh produce into crunchy chips, make homemade fruit leather, or create your own jerky with this multifunctional machine. Our home and Lab testers named the Magic Mill one of their top choices because it's easy to use, quiet, and consistent. Another benefit is its large assortment of trays, including fine mesh ones for small nuts or herbs and nonstick ones for fruit rolls or other especially sticky items—all of which are dishwasher-safe.
Calphalon Classic 10-Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set
Normally $240, Now $200
Stainless steel pots and pans not only look shiny and beautiful in the kitchen, but also heat evenly, are dishwasher-safe, and can go from the stove to the oven. Stainless is typically quite expensive, but this Calphalon set is well-constructed and still affordable, even when it's not on sale.
Lodge Pro-Grid Reversible Grill/Griddle
Normally $80, Now $50
This cast-iron marvel is a frying pan, griddle, and grill pan all in one. Designed to fit over two standard stove burners (or on top of a gas grill's grates), it provides a large flat cooking surface on one side and a grooved grill on the other. It comes pre-seasoned, so you don't have to worry about making it nonstick, and has attached handles to make it easy to move around. The grill/griddle is a hefty 13.5 pounds—cast iron is just a heavy material—but it's less than an inch thick and easy to tuck away in a drawer or cabinet after it's cooled and cleaned.
Cuisinart AirFryer Toaster Oven
Normally $230, Now $150
Our Lab found this Cuisinart model to be our top combination toaster oven/air fryer in testing. It did a great job on french fries and chicken fingers and can hold up to 3 pounds of food, but it's got a compact footprint that takes up less space than similar-capacity models.
Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender
Normally $630, Now $540
The undisputed champion of blenders, the Vitamix 750 handily took first place in our Lab testing. Its 2,400 watts of power can handle any task, from smoothie and blended drink to even kneading dough and churning butter. The only roadblock is the huge price tag. Vitamixes don't go on sale often, but this top-of-the-line model is almost $100 off right now.
Crock-Pot 6-Quart Slow Cooker
Normally $160, Now $115
The old-school Crock-Pot has joined the 2020s with this latest model, which you can monitor and program via phone app, or even voice with Alexa. Besides the upgraded controls, it's the flagship 6-quart slow cooker that made the Crock-Pot name famous. The cook time is adjustable from up to 20 hours, and the machine will keep your food warm and ready to eat after it's done cooking.
Kizen Digital Meat Thermometer
Normally $25, Now $10
Every kitchen should have a meat thermometer, and this one packs in a lot of convenient features. It can read temperatures in as quick as 3 seconds, it's waterproof (making it easy to clean), it's magnetic so you can store it on your refrigerator (or there is a hanging hole), and there is a convenient temperature chart for referencing while you cook. Plus, the battery (and a spare) are included so you're ready to start cooking immediately.
SodaStream Fizzi One Touch
Normally $130, Now $90
If you know someone who can't get enough carbonated water, this handy machine makes a great gift. This particular SodaStream was one of our winners after extensive Lab testing. We found it had even carbonation, the bubbles lasted longer than the competition, and the three levels of automation made it consistently easy to use.
Spring Chef Magnetic Measuring Spoons Set
Normally $25, Now $14
These dual-sided measuring spoons are a kitchen game-changer. The oval end is great for fitting into spice jars and the round side is well-suited for measuring liquids. Plus, they include both U.S. and metric measuring labels. They also nest together and are magnetic for convenient storage. We think these make a great stocking stuffer for the cooks in your life.
Ninja Foodi NeverDull Premium Knife System
Normally $250, Now $200
This 12-piece knife set with built-in sharpener has all of your cutlery needs covered. It includes an 8-inch chef's knife, 5-inch Santoku, 5-inch utility knife, 3.5-inch paring knife, six steak knives, and shears. This would make a great addition to any kitchen and a perfect gift for anyone stocking a first kitchen.
Instant Vortex Air Fryer Oven Combo
Normally $140, Now $80
If you haven't hopped on the air fryer trend yet, there is no better time than now. This one offers four functions: air fry, bake, roast, and reheat so you can do more than just cook fries. It features a quick preheat and customizable one-touch settings to easily make wings, roasted veggies, and more. At more than 40 percent off, it's a perfect time to buy!
