I write about kitchen products — here’s what I’m eyeing from Target’s early Black Friday sale

Black Friday might not kick off until after Thanksgiving, but to tide us over, Target has a slew of early Black Friday kitchen deals just ripe for the picking. And these aren’t your average markdowns, either — these are the best prices we’re seeing on the internet for brands like KitchenAid, Ninja, Instant Pot, Keurig and Cuisinart. You’ll save up to 57% on everything from air fryers and pressure cookers to coffee makers and stand mixers, so whether you want to get some early holiday gift shopping off your plate or treat yourself, now is a great time to snag some new appliances and cookware for a steal. As an former professional baker, avid home cook and kitchen product writer, here’s what I’m eyeing:


Save time, effort, space and money with this cute 5-inch-wide coffee maker, which brews a fresh cup in mere minutes. Now you can cut down on pricey Starbucks bevs in the morning — just fill the reservoir with water, add your K-Cup of choice, turn the machine on and voila!

“I love the simplicity of the mini Keurig!” exclaimed a satisfied sipper. “The color is so fun and [the] mini doesn’t take up a lot of counter space. Coffee brews hot, consistently, every time.”


As sleek as your full-sized appliances, this versatile cooker air fries, bakes, broils, toasts and more. It’s roomy enough to fit a 4-pound chicken, six slices of bread or a 12-inch pizza, and will make your crispy-crunchy dreams a reality in no time. Don’t be surprised if you start using this more than your actual oven!

“This unit does it all,” wrote a Cuisinart convert. “The air fryer and broiler are the best I’ve seen. I’m so impressed by this that I’ve thrown the box away and it now occupies a permanent place on my kitchen counter. The controls are easy to use and clean-up is simple. One of the best buys I’ve ever made.”


Blitz up smoothies, soups, purées and more with this pro-level blender, which is powerful enough to pulverize everything from ice to seeds and nuts. It has several rows of blades to keep you from having to stop and scrape everything down, and cleanup is a snap — just put the bowl in the dishwasher!

“It is a powerhouse for our daily use,” gushed a Ninja newbie. “In comparison to what we had before, the Ninja Professional does NOT have to be stopped and stirred with a spoon, as there are blades that go midway and up [the] top of [the] container. I do NOT have to hold the container down, or hold the lid on, as they both lock into place. It’s simple to use and simple to clean. It does not leak. I also like the pour spout that snaps closed.”


With this versatile workhorse, you’ll be able to concentrate flavor without having to simmer your food for hours on end. It not only pressure cooks, it also slow cooks, steams, sautés and makes rice, yogurt and more. (There’s not much this countertop appliance can’t do.) Plus, the 15 presets take a lot of the guesswork out of preparing meals, and with this bundle you’ll also get an extra sealing ring, silicone egg rack and stainless steel steamer rack.

“The Instant Pot always comes in CLUTCH,” declared a reviewer. “We love cooking at home, but there are a lot of times where we just need to have our meals prepared quick. It’s perfect for stews and making your own broth. I can’t recommend this product enough.”


Whether you’re a cookie monster or a bread head, having a KitchenAid stand mixer is an absolute game-changer when it comes to preparing baked goods at home. You’ll be able to add your ingredients and then let the machine do its thing while you take care of other tasks, saving you time and a whole lotta elbow grease. It comes with whisk, beater and dough hook attachments, has 11 speeds and can hold enough dough to make up to 11 dozen cookies in a single batch. It’s also great for mashing potatoes come Thanksgiving! (Full disclosure: This very model — in silver — is the one I own, and it’s the best.)

“I’ve had KitchenAid mixers for over 32 years,” wrote a pro baker. “For 28 years I had a wedding cake business, and my mixers had to be the best. Now retired, I just bought the 5.5-quart bowl-lift mixer, and love it! It’s easy to operate and does a fantastic job! I would not ever buy anything but a KitchenAid mixer. This one is superb!”


Having sharp knives not only makes food prep easier, it also makes it safer, since you won’t be exerting as much force while you slice and dice. This nifty set includes a chef knife, santoku knife, utility knife, paring knife, six steak knives, kitchen shears and — coolest of all — a storage block with a built-in sharpener to keep those blades nice and pointy. 

$110 at Target

“Absolutely great kitchen knives,” wrote a five-star fan. “They are definitely SHARP, so be careful. We’ve only had to sharpen them about three times since we bought them, which is amazing. Also, the sharpening contraption is super quick and easy.”


Cookware starting to look a little crusty? With this slick nonstick set you won’t have to worry about scraping off caked-on residue, since your food will slide right off. It comes with a 10.25-inch fry pan, 12-inch fry pan with lid, 1.5-quart saucepan with lid, 2.5-quart saucepan with lid, 8-quart stock pot, plus a lid that fits both the smaller fry pan and stock pot. Everything is oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and compatible with all range types.

“I swear by this cookware,” raved a home cook. “By far the best nonstick I’ve ever used. You can crack an egg (no oil or butter) directly onto the pan and it will not stick. Cleanup is also a breeze because you can put them right in the dishwasher.”
