The Crucible. Fully clothed. Staub. Do we still have your attention? Amazon Prime Day cookware deals are pretty good this year – something about supply chain disruptions and excess inventory, I don’t know. Amazon Prime Day 2022, which is technically Prime Daysis today and tomorrow. It’s a good time to upgrade your pots and pans, from the nonstick egg pan that’s no longer so nonstick to the branded Dutch oven you’ve been eyeing longingly, whispering “someday.” (And if you’re looking for more home and kitchen deals plus tools and pantry items for under $25, we’ve got you covered.)

Here are the basics of Amazon Prime Day deals: Some items will be on sale all day today. The elusive flash deals will appear for six-hour periods and sell out quickly, so be sure to check back as we update this post with what’s currently on sale. All retailer sales and coupons will be automatically applied at checkout and are available for Main members. Without further ado, here are the best Amazon Prime Day cookware deals to buy and buy hard. All good stuff, no fluff.
