Amazon Prime Day looks a lot different this year, for more reasons than one. It’s not in July, and we’re all months-deep in a pandemic that has caused many of us to stay at home and pinch our pennies a little bit harder. Here on the WIRED Gear team, we scrolled through thousands of deals to find a way to save money on some of our favorite whizbangs and gizmos. If you’re looking for ways to make cooking a little easier, or to get motivated to get moving, read on.

Note: We strike through items that sell out or rise in price as we update this guide. Discounts sometimes return quickly, so check for yourself. You’ll need a subscription to Amazon Prime to get most of these deals.

Updated: We added the Blue Air air purifer, AeroGarden, a GoPro, some Backcountry deals, and made some edits.

Kitchen and Home Deals

  • iRobot Roomba 692 for $200 ($117 off): Any time an iRobot vacuum goes near $200, it’s a good deal. Although this is an older model, it still has a powerful motor, world-class navigation, and features like Dirt Detect to detect high-traffic areas that I still have yet to see in more expensive robot vacuums.

  • Stasher Reusable Storage Bag Bundle for $38 ($12 off): These reusable, dishwasher-friendly silicone bags are favorites of the entire WIRED staff. This bundle has bags in a variety of sizes that last forever and are easy to clean and seal.

  • Instant Pot Aura 8QT Slow Cooker for $70 ($79 off): Is it even a Prime Day without an Instant Pot? The Aura is not the Instant Pot’s pressure cooker, but it can oven-bake and roast, which other versions cannot.

  • Kasa Smart Plug for $20 ($10 off): Are you trying to make your home a little more energy-efficient and shave a few bucks off your heating bill? A smart plug that will let you turn off your entire workstation when you go to bed is an easy, affordable way to start.

  • Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Griddle for $90 ($70 off): Amazon is currently offering up to 40 percent off a lot of kitchenware. It’s rare to see a prestige kitchenware brand like Le Creuset discounted this deeply. A griddle is useful for everything from pressing sandwiches to making pancakes.

  • Tramontina Stainless Steel Fry Pan for $26 ($34 off): Tramontina is a sturdy midrange brand; I (Adrienne) own several of their pots myself. They’re an even better bargain at an over 50 percent discount.

  • Blueair Pure 411+ Air Purifier for $98 ($42 off): I (Adrienne) tested this bedroom purifier during the wildfires that choked Oregon. It kept my children’s bedroom at a reasonable AQI during a time when the outdoor air quality was decidedly not reasonable. It also has a pretty small footprint, an array of attractive prefilters, and is almost silent on the lowest level. You can also get a twin-pack for a big discount.

  • AeroGarden Bounty Heirloom Salad for $250 ($150 off) at Best Buy: If you are used to growing your fresh herbs and veggies through the summer, AeroGardens are an easy, countertop way to continue indulging your green thumb through a cold and gray winter.
