Silly season is upon us, which means that when my family asks me to bring a plate for Christmas dinner, I have to at least pretend that I don’t just cook chips and nuggets in my air fryer every night. That’s why I decided it was time to call in the big guns and find myself some kitchen essentials to start practising with.

I know what you’re thinking, kitchen tools can be a massive drain on an already slim bank account at this time of year. Still, if you know where to look (*ahem* Amazon’s kitchen deals), you’ll be surprised to find you can save a buck (or 50) on coffee makers, toasters, frypans, microwaves, knife sets, waffle makers and more.

So, please, allow me to share my haul…

  • Chef here. The linked Global is a boning knife. They also have a deal on the 8 inch Chef’s Knife, which while personally isn’t my cup of tea, I know a few chefs that use it who prefer a lighter knife.

    The fry pan looks like a decent deal. I just paid $75 for something similar recently. Note that it’s not non-stick
