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:
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
