Amazon Prime Day is here—and with it some giant savings in the kitchen and grocery space. The Epi staff always has a lengthy wish list of culinary tools and fun ingredients that we’re contemplating purchasing, and Prime Day markdowns are the excuse we need to hit “buy now”. Below are the 10 items we’re eyeing from the sale this year and will likely snatch up before the 48-hour discount bonanza is through.

Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones

These are actually great headphones and I put them on when I'm doing the dishes to listen to podcasts and music. I can hear the audio over the water running which is something I look for. I am buying a pair for my mom, who borrows them when she wants to block the noise of the family out when she cooks dinner. —Elaheh Nozari, Associate Affiliate Director

Vitamix 5200 Blender

I have a hand-me-down Vitamix—not the 5200, but a less fancy model, and it works just fine. But I’d really love a blender with that knob for slowly increasing the speed; right now I’m just working with “Low” and “High,” which is not nearly as precise or as fun. This discount is wildly tempting. —Kendra Vaculin, Staff Writer

Classic Wooden Spoon Set

I in no way think one person needs eight wooden spoons, but I definitely need more than my one 10-year-old spoon. I think I’ll get this set, keep some, and gift the rest alongside sets of linens, spices, and cookbooks around the holidays. —Lauren Joseph, Associate Commerce Editor

Le Creuset Chef's Oven

I do already own a Dutch oven, but the easy sloped sides (and matching trivet!) on this alternative model from Le Creuset are a wintry stew stove-to-table dream. The butter yellow color in particular is calling my name. —KV

Stasher Silicone Bags

I like to slice and freeze half my sourdough loaves the day I get them, and these half gallon Stasher bags are the perfect, plastic-free way to store my fresh slices in the freezer. —Alex Pastron, Audience Development Manager

I really do need a new stash of sandwich-size Stasher bags; the kid lunch and snack situation requires something she can open by herself and not have to throw away every day. —Maggie Hoffman, Senior Editor

OXO Grinder

My spice grinder died the first week of quarantine and I’ve been putting off buying a new one because I want to be the kind of person who always grinds spices in my mortar and pestle. But, God, sometimes you just need a spice grinder. OXO Manual Coffee Grinder, you’re coming home with me. — Joe Sevier, Associate Editor
