Let’s skip the preamble—the best Amazon Cyber Monday kitchen deals 2021 are live right here, right now, ready for your hot little fingers to press “add to cart.” You’ll find sales on top of sales across the internet today, but there’s arguably no better place than Amazon to buy BA’s favorite toaster oven, the most comfortable kitchen slippers, and the best hand mixer around all at the same time. (Don’t worry, we’ve rounded up all the best kitchen deals from the likes of Sur La Table, Target, and Nordstrom right over here so you can check those out, too.) Yes I know, participating in this festival of tumultuous consumerism can be a lot. But that top-notch espresso machine isn’t going to buy itself, and you might as well save some money while you’re at it. Whether you’re on a holiday gift shopping mission (check out our 2021 gift guide if you need inspo) or you just want to treat yourself to some new cooking gear, the list below is a great place to start.

The Hydro Flask comes in a lot of different sizes, from 12-oz. bottles for kids to 64-oz. growlers for thirsty giants. We tested a 32-oz. bottle ($45), a size more realistic for cold bevs than hot unless you go through a ton of coffee. While it worked well for both temperatures, it didn’t perform as well as the S’well or the Zojirushi. But it was also the largest capacity bottle we tested and the one we would choose if we knew we wouldn’t be around a tap for a while. It didn’t warm up on the outside and kept things insulated inside.
