In 2015, Amazon celebrated its 20th Anniversary with its own version of a Black Friday-type sale. Giving its Prime Members access to sales exclusively made for them, they coined the sale “Prime Day,” and it’s one of our favorite days of the year! This year, Amazon has found even more deals and ways to give its Prime Members a ‘thank-you’ for being a member, and we’ve been waiting…well, ever since the holiday shopping season for deals like this.
For those of us looking for great deals on all things Sous Vide, Prime Day delivers! It’s no longer a ‘Day’ because they just can’t fit all the fantastic deals they wow Prime members with in just 24 hours. Amazon has promised this year’s sales are even bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and we’re seeing great buys on essentials and accessories for which we’re always looking to ensure our best dining options. We Sous Vide aficionados are loving the Whole Foods sales and deals also offered on Prime Day, as they became a fabulous addition when Amazon acquired Whole Foods in 2017.
And we’re anticipating the Amazon “Smile” boxes too. Cities around the world are waiting to see if they’re the venue for the ‘events’ that Amazon graced five cities (New York, Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and Milan) with last year, and Prime Members are on pins and needles to see what stars their membership brings into their homes.
The deals are only for Prime members, though, so if you are not one, now is the perfect time to give Prime Membership a shot. Prime membership doesn’t just mean super-speedy delivery anymore; it also includes access to Prime Music, Prime Video, Prime delivery and exclusive deals around the clock every day that only Prime Members can participate in. It seems as this year is even more full of Prime opportunities Amazon is ramping up
If you’ve never had a Prime membership, you can take advantage of their free 30-day trial membership. It gives you all the savings opportunities and perks that Prime members have come to expect and love, and there’s no better time than Prime Day to take advantage of their offer. If you’ve already been a trial member, though, you can still gift yourself with a three-month membership for just $39, or just go ahead and take the plunge with an annual membership for $119. Prime Members find that they often recoup the membership fees in speedy delivery alone, and they fall in love and find the can’t live without awesome benefits like Prime Video on demand. If you’re in the right zip code, you can even take advantage of Prime Now. Prime Now offers people one- and two-hour deliveries (in some Fords and Lincolns, even delivery to their cars!), making that dinner party you’re throwing for 12 an easy peasy way to show off your Sous Vide skills.
The best part of Prime Day is that the deals just keep coming, and we’re watching minute-by-minute to see when the newest deals come out. Whether you’re looking for the greatest deal on ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide or a new vacuum sealer or bags, we’re keeping our eyes open and you’ll be the first to know. Get your cart ready, get set and go!
Complete your collection of indispensable kitchen accessories with this bad boy- world’s first multi-use programmable pressure cooker that can be controlled via a smartphone app, tablet, or even through Alexa.

If you don’t prioritize WiFi connectivity and want to save even more money, then Instant Pot DUO Plus 9-in-1 is the way to go.

Cooking without any oil but still getting tasty results? Yes, it’s possible- with an air fryer. While you don’t have to give up your healthy, juicy sous vide meals slathered in sauces, olive oil, or butter, frying foods in oil is never a good idea. So, when you get cravings for some french fries, fried chicken, or anything else that you can’t cook in a vacuum bag- this digital air fryer device will give you the option to treat yourself, but guilt-free.
