Competition is a beautiful thing. Especially when it's two massive retailers competing for your business with amazing sale prices. Right now Walmart is pulling focus with an Anti-Prime day sale (called "Deals for Days") including markdowns on kitchen items that will make cooking fun again. 

Every kitchen has something that needs replacing, especially after a year of staying home. Maybe your pressure cooker has been under too much pressure, maybe your air fryer is on the fritz, or maybe your steak knives can barely cut butter these days. 

Whether your cookware needs an upgrade or you're aching to fill empty counter space with an espresso-maker, you're going to find a great bargain below. Snap it up quick — these items won't last!

Ah, the espresso machine. Born in the city of Turin, along the bank of the Po River, the first espresso machine was invented by Angelo Moriondo in 1884. 

It's safe to say the gadget has gone through many changes and improvements over the last 137 years (Moriondo's original wasn't designed to produce individual servings, for example), all leading up to the innovative Nespresso by De'Longhi VertuoPlus. 

You'll be able whip up five different sized drinks in a snap: 8- and 14-ounce coffees, a 5-ounce Gran Lungo, an espresso and a double espresso. Not bad! The machine is easy to use, easy to clean, and turns out amazing gourmet beverages. It's built for speed too: it heats up in under a minute and all you have to do is press one measly button. Plus the capsules automatically eject — so satisfying.

Walmart shoppers are hooked on this thing. Says one: "Honestly I don't know why I didn't purchase the Nespresso sooner! Best purchase I've made by far! Coffee tastes AMAZING! I am a HUGE coffee lover. I made my own iced caramel macchiato just the way I like it! And it tasted just like the one I get from Starbucks. If you're looking for a great coffee maker that also brews espresso this is the machine for you!"

Indoor grills are having a moment. The peace of mind you get from knowing that your BBQ won't be ruined even if it rains is more than enough reason to score one of Walmart's top-rated indoor grills (it earned a 4.9-star rating!), while it's on sale.

For just $40, you'll get an adorable round grill with nonstick grates and a tempered glass lid to keep splatters at bay. The raised grill surface allows grease to drip down into the large — dishwasher-safe! — pan for healthier eating. Really, there's nothing not to love.

Good thing I had this indoor grill! It was super easy to set up and use...It's easy to store and doesn't take up much space. Works great, highly recommend!"

The year Farberware first started making cookware is the same year Milton Hershey first produced his chocolate bar, Louis Lassen cooked the first modern hamburger, and the Wright Brothers began their first flight experiments at Kitty Hawk. Like those other innovations, Farberware has been a staple of American life ever since, not just because of tradition, but because of reliability. Now, you can stock your kitchen cabinets with all of the classic accouterments that have come to define Farberware over the last century-plus, with a 20 piece set — on sale today — that offers everything you need to prep, cook and store your meals. This collection also makes a great gift for folks moving into a first home. 

"So happy that I have the chance to try this set and I love it!" one recent five-star reviewer wrote, "Have been looking for a good quality, smaller portion/size pot & pan cooking set to fit our lifestyle, with just two of us at home. Every item in this set worked perfectly for us. 5" mini pan & 6.5" mini square griddle are so cute and functional; 4.25 quart stockpot and 4.5 quart chef pan with lid are my favorite to cook big batches when we want extra!"
