One can only make so many soups and stews before one begins feeling souped- and stewed-out.
If your go-to winter recipes have got you in a cooking rut, Walmart has just the thing to make the foodie part of your brain feel inspired again: The big box store is currently offering huge discounts on all sorts of appliances from brands like Cuisinart, KitchenAid, and Instant Pot, saving shoppers up to 61% (!) on new tools and gadgets for their kitchen.
Here are the deals you absolutely, positively *shouldn’t* miss:
Instant Pot Ace 60 Cooking Blender — save 55%
Available exclusively at Walmart, the Instant Pot Ace 60 is a high-performance, 60-ounce blender that comes from the makers of your favorite pressure cookers. (Translation: It’s hella versatile and will save you a ton of time.) It features a built-in heating element that can cook your food as you blend it and sports eight Smart One-Touch Programs with settings for making smoothies, puréeing, concocting frozen desserts, crushing ice, and preparing soy milk, rice milk, nut/oat milk, and soup.
The Instant Pot Ace 60 normally retails for $99, but Walmart’s got it on sale right now for just $44.96 — a $54.04 savings.
Magic Bullet (7-piece) — save 50%
Speaking of blenders: Everyone’s favorite personal model nabbed a spot in Walmart’s sale, too.
Nutribullet’s ultra-compact Magic Bullet can do a little bit of everything — chopping, mixing, blending, whipping, and grinding — all without taking up too much space on your countertop. This special-edition configuration includes a short cup and a tall cup with a lip ring, plus lids for both — perfect for dips/salsas and smoothies, respectively. Get yours at Walmart for just $19.96, down $20.03 from its $39.99 MSRP.
KitchenAid Stainless Steel Cold Brew Coffee Maker — save 45%
If you partake in Iced Coffee Szn all year round, KitchenAid’s cold brew coffee maker needs to be moved to the top of your shopping list. It makes it easy to whip up cold brew at home so you can skip your expensive morning jaunts to Starbucks: Simply fill it with water and your favorite coffee blend, then let that shit steep for up to 28 ounces of deliciously smooth coffee concentrate that stays fresh in your fridge for up to two weeks. (Pro tip: Mix two ounces of that concentrate with six ounces of milk/water/ice for a perfectly balanced drink.) Free to bring it with you to work or wherever, too — its carrying handle and stainless steel tap make it great for on-the-go caffeine fixes.
This puppy typically retails for $99.99, but you can score it at Walmart for only $54.99 — a $45 savings.
Best Choice Products 6-in-1 Digital Non-Stick Air Fryer — save 61%
Best Choice Products isn’t a super well-known brand, but who cares with a discount that steep?
This 6-in-1 air fryer uses hot air and a teensy bit of oil to crisp up its contents, allowing you to enjoy all of your favorite fried foods without any of the guilt. (Its control panel features quick presets for fries, vegetables, cheese, seafood, meats, and even baked goods.) At 5.5 quarts, it’s big enough to cook for the whole family — plus, its fryer basket is detachable to make cleanup a breeze. You can buy it at Walmart right now for only $69.97, which is down a whopping $108.02 from its suggested retail price of $177.99.
Cuisinart Stainless Steel Hollow Handle Cutlery Block Set — save 48%
On top of being a legitimate safety hazard, dull knives can make cooking feel like a chore — but lucky for you, Walmart’s got a great deal on a 15-piece knife set from Cuisinart. It includes an 8-inch chef’s knife, an 8-inch slicing knife, a 7-inch Santoku/general-purpose knife, a 5.5-inch serrated utility knife, a 3.5-inch paring knife, a 3.5-inch bird’s beak knife, and six 4.5-inch steak knives (in addition to an 8-inch sharpening steel, shears, and a storage block). All of those blades feature hollow handles, which keeps them lightweight for effortless prep work.
This Cuisinart knife set normally retails for $79.99, but if you head over to Walmart’s website, you can order it for just $41.99 — a $38 savings.
