Save money and eat healthy with some of the best Cyber Monday deals I found for you!

 

 

This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small compensation if you make a purchase using the links. You can view my full disclosure policy here.

 

(Heads up: This post looks remarkably similar to my Black Friday one. But there are some fun new deals and products to check out! So if you missed them, find them here.)

I want your kitchen experience to be efficient and awesome. Saving money and eating healthy requires you to be intentional – intentional with what you buy, where you buy it, and how you prepare it.

So awhile back, I created 2 lists for you: Everything You Need, and A Few Things You Want.

The idea is that you don’t need much to make great food. All it takes are a few good tools. Unfortunately, most of us move into our first kitchen without a clue about what that means. And if you are trying to cook healthy, it requires a different set of tools.

Everything You Need gives you the minimalist essentials to make your kitchen exactly what it takes to cook good, real food.

A Few Things Want makes your kitchen even more efficient and helps you get real food on the table quicker.

The great news is, a bunch of my favorite tools from those lists is part of Amazon’s Cyber Monday Deals!

If you are trying to build an efficient, frugal, real food-friendly kitchen, here are some deals to supercharge your process!

meal-prep/lunch containers

Bento 3 Compartment Lunch Containers

Meal Prep Food Storage, Reusable, 10 Pack, Black

I just talked on Instagram about handy these are for traveling and packing healthy lunches. In the past, I thought they were only trendy and not really helpful. I was wrong. SO HANDY. And they’re cheap!

 

 

cast iron pans

 

Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet 2-Piece Set

(10-Inch and 12-Inch) Oven Safe Cookware | 2 Heat-Resistant Holders | Indoor and Outdoor Use | Grill, Stovetop, Induction Safe

Recently, we converted all of our cookware to either stainless steel or cast iron. It’s considered safer, and they last forever! I don’t want to replace my nonstick pans every couple years, nor do I want parts of the nonstick coating to come off in my food (it totally did after a few years). And they transfer easily from stovetop to oven. So versatile and classic.

 

reusable straws

Stainless Steel Straws, With Cleaner

I bought reusable straws awhile back. I’m a convert! People swear by stainless steel, and this set comes with a cleaner.

The cleaner is obviously necessary if we’re drinking smoothies through reusable straws. I didn’t think we would use this tool for anything else, but we actually use it all the time – cleaning bottles, lids, and nooks and crannies in random dishes (that apparently never got clean before I bought this. Gross.), etc.

 

scissors

 

KitchenAid All Purpose Kitchen Shears

One of the first kitchen tools I purchased was a pair of kitchen scissors. I still use them 10 years later. They’re handy for 8 million jobs, but they are particularly helpful while making Spatchcocked Chicken (cook a whole chicken in less than 1 hour!) and slicing pizza (don’t tell my Italian relatives!).

Get yours here!

 

instant pot

 

Instant Pot 8 Qt 7-in-1

Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Maker and Warmer

The real game changer is the Instant Pot. Someone sent one to me as a gift (see the unboxing here), and I experimented with it for several months. it lives up to all the hype. It also has a slow cooker option! We put this machine to work multiple times a week – sometimes multiple times a day.

Can the Instant Pot Help You Save Money?

 

 

 

 

pyrex baking dishes with lids

 

Pyrex Glass Bakeware and Food Storage Set

Black Carrier, 9-Piece Double Decker, BPA-Free

I love glass here, specifically the Pyrex pans with lids. Saves me from using plastic wrap (not good for the environment or budget) when I bring a dish to friend’s house or when I’m covering leftovers at night. Pyrex glass is also extremely durable and lasts forever – or for at least 8 years if I’m only speaking from experience.

 

 

stick blender

 

Immersion Blender 

This blending tool is far more convenient for blending soups and marinara than dirtying a whole blender. I use it far more than I thought I would.

 

 

 

glass food storage containers

Glass Meal Prep Food Storage Container

With Snap Locking Lids, Glass Meal Prep Containers BPA-Free, Microwave, Oven, Freezer, Dishwasher Safe (62 Oz, 28 Oz, 19 Oz, 11 Oz.)

We are working on converting our plastic storage containers to glass. Not only do they last longer, but I don’t have to worry about staining or temperature!

 

glass meal prep containers

Mealcon Meal Prep Glass Food Storage Containers

16 Pieces

If you prefer smaller containers, you can get those here for the next couple hours!

 

 

ninja blender

 

 

Ninja Smart Screen Blender

with 1000-Watt Base, 4-Auto-iQ Programs, Touchscreen Display, Total Crushing Pitcher, (CT650), Black

My friends and family swear by their Ninja blenders. I’m so excited that it’s on sale! If you’ve had your eye on one, now’s the time to jump on it!

 

cutting mats

 

Extra Thick Flexible Plastic Cutting Board Mats

With Food Icons &”EZ-Grip” Waffle Back, 4 packs

I just used cutting boards like this yesterday at my in-law’s house. I never realize how ingenious they were until then – when I was done chopping apples for apple crisp, I could just pick up the board, bend it, and dump everything into the pan – no spilling, no mess.

And they take up minimal space! Ideal for the tiny kitchens my family tends to live in. Brilliant.

 

cookware

 

T-fal Stainless Steel Cookware Set

Tri-Ply Multi-Clad Pots and Pans Set, 12 Piece, Silver

As I mentioned above, we recently converted our cookware to stainless steel and cast iron. However, not all stainless steel is made equal. I have worked with a lot of sub-par stainless steel pans that burn everything on the bottom and get hot way too fast.

T-fal is one of my favorite brands. I have their giant stockpot. If you’re looking to ditch the cheap nonstick and find something that will last longer (and won’t fleck non-stick coating into your food – gross). Now is the time to get a great deal on quality cookware! 

(They had a similar deal last year for Black Friday, so I am really excited they offered it again!)

 

vitamix

Vitamix 5200 Blender

Professional-Grade, 64 oz. Container, Black

I finally saved up and bought my dream blender last Summer. The Vitamix is everything it promises. We use it nearly every day!

 

 

blendtec

 

Blendtec Total Classic Original Blender

With FourSide Jar (75 oz), Professional-Grade Power, 6 Pre-programmed Cycles, 10-speeds, Black

I was tied between getting the Blendtec or the Vitamix. The ONLY reason I went with a Vitamix was that I found a great deal on that one first. Both are excellent machines that last a long time and hold up to the hype.

This week, BOTH the Vitamix and Blendtec are available as part of Cyber Week! Check it out here.

 

May your kitchen be efficient, fun, and ultimately help you save money and eat healthy!

  • So I tried ceramic coated cast iron. INTERIOR coating. For a skillet. Hard to find. Pricey IMO
    It’s not nonstick though it’s touted as so. It IS better than stainless steel, and my stainless is a heavy pan.
    But for eggs…noop, not gonna work.
    I am so over nonstick for eggs but we eat them daily and often want to scramble or fry them.
    Sigh

    Just giving my review. Don’t waste your money.

    • Uncoated cast iron works really well for eggs if it’s seasoned properly. Butter makes a big difference, IMO. If you can use butter as your cooking fat, I think it makes the eggs or whatever you are cooking stick less. Thanks for the review!
