I’ve been a Costco member for several years and my only regret is that I didn’t become one sooner. Even as a single-person household, the amount of money I save on food (most of which is organic!) by shopping at Costco never fails to blow me away. I’ll talk for as long as people will listen about the groceries at Costco, but I’d also like to share some love for the kitchen gear that’s available at Costco.

See, the warehouse store has some amazing deals on countertop appliances. And while a lot of these are also available online, on Costco’s website, they’re often even cheaper in stores. What are some of the best Costco deals on small appliances right now? Which ones should you pick up (either for yourself or as early holiday presents)? Let’s take a look.

I’ve seen many Vitamix deals pop up at Costco over the years, but this one is pretty great: Not only do you get an incredibly powerful blender, but also two personal cups with lids.

You can use this ultra-powerful blender to make smoothies, purée soups, make creamy nut butters, and more. It’s available in red or black — and with the holidays coming up, can you really think of a better gift for the cook in your life? Plus, if you have an executive membership at Costco, you’ll even earn 2% rewards back on your purchase.

2. A Cuisinart Coffee Maker

If you love coffee as much as I do, you know the joys of Costco’s bulk bags of coffee. And, of course, you also know you need a great coffee maker! This model from Cuisinart goes for around $100 elsewhere, but is just $60 at Costco.

I love that this coffee maker is programmable, so I can set it to have my coffee ready for me when I wake up in the morning. It holds up to 14 cups, too, so you can make plenty if you’re having company over or just want extra to turn into iced coffee or coffee ice cubes. Plus, the machine’s stainless steel finish looks classic and stylish in just about any kitchen.

Yes, another blender! If a Vitamix isn’t in your price range, this blender packs a huge, powerful punch for the money. It’s amazing for smoothies and even nut butters (which can be a make-it-or-break-it task for some blenders!) and it comes with two blender cups and three stainless-steel reusable straws. (America’s Test Kitchen is even a fan of this blender!)

There’s no reason not to have an Instant Pot when you can get such a great model at this price! (It’s about $120 at other retailers.) At 6 quarts, this model is the ideal size for making just about any recipe. It also has yogurt, white and brown rice, and sous vide settings. Pair it with one of those massive 10-pound bags of organic brown rice and you have a match made in Costco heaven.

5. An Oster Toaster Oven-Air Fryer

Oster makes great toaster ovens, and I particularly love the double French doors on this toaster oven. This guy even doubles as an air fryer and retails for about $50 more at other stores! For what it’s worth, while I was checking out this model in the store, a Costco employee came up to me and told me that she has one and how much she loves it!
