  • Now is a great time to update the tools you use in and around the kitchen, and Amazon is running plenty of great deals right now on kitchen gadgets and cookware.
  • We found five great deals in particular that you should definitely check out before they’re gone.

I always try to cook as much as possible as opposed to ordering food for takeout or going out to eat in restaurants. That’s especially true now, of course, since the novel coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage the United States and much of the rest of the world. That said, plans change pretty often after a long day of work — dialing a phone or ordering dinner with an app is so much easier than cooking, after all. Considering the COVID-19 flare-ups we’re seeing all around the country right now though, you might want to think twice about ordering food when you really don’t have to.

People across the country are still in lockdown mode whether or not their local government mandates it. Needless to say, self-quarantining is the only way to really protect yourself. Many restaurants have reopened for takeout or even delivery, but every time you go out or bring something into your home, it’s a new exposure risk. For that reason, and because so many of us are trying to save as much money as possible with more than 40 million Americans unemployed right now, people are cooking more than ever.

If you’ve been spending tons of time in your kitchen these days, you’re probably looking for some variety to spice things up. Lucky for you, Amazon is running some terrific deals right now on kitchen products that you’re going to love. Check out our five favorite kitchen deals down below.
