Whether you want to get a very early start on your holiday shopping (the struggle is real when it comes to buying every present on one paycheck) or are still in the midst of creating your own blissful home sanctuary (shout out to everyone who hasn’t left their house since March), Amazon Prime Day—which this year is on October 13 and 14—couldn’t come at a better time.
While tons of products will be marked down this week, healthy chefs should definitely peruse the cookware deals on offer. Virtually everyone has been cooking a lot more lately and it’s something that will very likely continue through 2021. Cookware and kitchen essentials aren’t frivolous purchases; these are items you know you’ll use—and if you’re buying them for someone else, they certainly won’t sit in a drawer unappreciated.
Of course, sifting through all the deals can be more stressful than making a vegan soufflé. That’s why I did the hard work for you, rounding up the very best of the best Amazon Prime cookware deals you can find this year. The ones included here are items that rank high on wish lists and are priced lower than other competing products on the market. Get ready to add lots of stuff to your cart.
11 Amazon Prime cookware deals worth taking advantage of
This Dutch oven is comparable in function to the beloved Le Creuset ones—and it’s about $300 cheaper. It holds up to six quarts, making it the ideal size for soups, stews, braises, and roasts that can feed a crowd. Plus, it’s so pretty that you may just want to leave it out even when you’re not using it. It also comes in red, green, and white.

As any chef will tell you, having a good knife set is crucial for cooking—dull knives are not only ineffective but also dangerous. While typically a knife set tends to be over $100 (often, well over $100), this Amazon Prime cookware deal will score you one for just $25.
