Black Friday 2022: The Best Food And Kitchen Deals On Amazon

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

Even if you're not a big shopper, there's one date on the fall calendar you likely pay attention to each year: Black Friday, the day that follows Thanksgiving and one of the biggest shopping dates of the year (via How Stuff Works). On this day, many retailers both large and small offer compelling deals to the American shopping public, and it can be a great way to find deep-discount prices on larger items you may have been saving up for, from electronics to designer clothing.

Once a brick-and-mortar-based sales day, in recent years online retailers have embraced Black Friday, offering site-wide deals that often continue through the post-Thanksgiving weekend into Cyber Monday, the relatively new sales day exclusive to websites (via USA Today). And if you love food and cooking, these sales can be excellent opportunities to grab pots, pans, kitchen appliances, and even ingredients. If you're thinking of heading to Amazon this Black Friday with that very goal in mind, check out some of the retailer's best foodie deals, many of which are already in effect now.

Babish Carbon Steel Flat Bottom Wok

If you love throwing together stir fries, hot pots, and fried rice, then a dependable wok is one piece of kitchen equipment you'll get a ton of use out of. Though made from varying materials, carbon steel is the metal Serious Eats recommends looking for. These woks are lightweight, heat quickly and evenly, are budget-friendly and long-lasting, and, when properly washed and seasoned, become almost completely nonstick over time. 

This carbon steel wok from Babish is a great choice, featuring a flat bottom that's a great area for searing meats and vegetables, and the sloping sides that facilitate shaking and tossing ingredients.

Purchase the Babish Carbon Steel Flat Bottom Wok for $37.50, down from $49.99.

Ninja IG651 Foodi Smart XL Pro 7-in-1 Indoor Grill/Griddle Combo

This cute little kitchen appliance might look like a simple toaster oven, but it actually offers an Instant Pot-style combination of functions. There are seven of them, in fact: a flat grilling surface; a grilling surface with grates; roasting, baking, and broiling; air frying; and dehydrating. 

Featuring an internal smart thermometer that helps you cook steaks, chicken, and other proteins to the perfect temperature, the appliance also boasts a generous XL surface area. The grill grate can hold up to six steaks, and the smooth griddle can toast up to four sandwiches or six pancakes at once.

Purchase the Ninja IG651 Foodi Smart XL Pro 7-in-1 Indoor Grill/Griddle Combo for $219.99, down from $369.99.

FLYBYJING Triple Threat Variety Pack

A collection of flavor-packed sauces, seasonings, and dumplings founded by chef Jing Gao, FLYBYJING has garnered quite a bit of praise from the food media since it got its start back in 2018. Among the brand's umami-packed condiments, a fan favorite is FLYBYJING's signature chili crisp, crunchy bits of chili peppers and fermented black beans suspended in a highly spiced oil that's perfect for dumpling-dipping, spooning over stir fries, and more. 

This Black Friday, snag the oil along with the brand's soy-based sweet-and-savory Zhong Sauce, as well as its Mala Spice Mix, a spicy and numbing seasoning mix featuring Sichuan peppercorns, dried chilis, mushroom powder, seaweed powder, and other potent flavorings.

KitchenAid Universal Tool Set

Made by KitchenAid, the set includes one long and one short flat spatula, a slotted spatula, a serving spoon, a slotted spoon, and a ladle, all made from a heat-resistant blend of nylon and plastic that's dishwasher safe and won't damage nonstick surfaces.

McCormick Baking Essentials 7 Count Variety Pack

Speaking of holiday baking, now is a great time of year to revise your ground spices and make sure they're still fresh; any dried-out spices will fail to shine in your lovingly crafted gingerbread cookies and cinnamon rolls. According to McCormick, dried ground spices only stay fresh for between two and four years, so if yours are any older than that, it's time to toss them. 

Luckily, the brand is offering a kit of seven of the spices most essential for holiday baking: allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, ginger, and cloves, plus some cream of tartar for all your meringue needs.

Purchase the McCormick Baking Essentials 7 Count Variety Pack for $28.54, down from $35.67.
