Prime Day is great for getting household purchases you need but don't want to invest in. Buy them now and take advantage of great deals.

Are you as jazzed about Prime Day as we are? All the sales are under wraps until Prime Day officially kicks off, but here is what the staff at BestReviews hopes will be on sale. We've tested numerous models in the following categories and find them to be must-haves, to own or give as gifts. Once the sale starts, we'll be looking for deals on the items below. We hope you will use this list as inspiration as you get prepared for shopping Prime Day.

Instant Pot

A lot of models sold out last holiday season, so if you missed out on this super popular multi-cooker and they're on sale, don't wait any longer to get yours.

Roomba

Who wants to vacuum up dust, pet hair, and crumbs throughout the week? A Roomba takes care of it for you, so your time is spent on better things.

Echo device

The gold standard in Bluetooth devices, the Echo is a must for anyone who likes telling others what to do. Get the weather forecast, listen to music, and much more without lifting a finger.

DNA ancestry kit

It's fascinating to learn about your past and understand where you come from. An ancestry kit is a great gift, too.

Blender

Let's face it: many kitchens have a blender in the corner or in a cabinet that just can't crush ice or blend up smoothies like it used to. Now's the chance to grab a great new one.

Fire Tablet

Read books, play games, and more. Ideal for public transit commuters and vacations, a Fire Tablet is a convenient way to have entertainment at your disposal, anywhere.

Air fryer

If you like a crispy crust but not the fat and calories of traditional fried foods, you should get an air fryer.

Smart TV

If you've been waiting to upgrade to a newer TV, Prime Day is a great day to get one. Save big... and save an awkward adventure in fitting that large box in your car if you'd bought it in-store.

Portable air conditioner

Summer is in full swing, and no one likes to sweat it out all day and night. A portable air conditioner works in just about any home where you want a room to chill out.

Luggage set

Most of us wait to buy luggage until right before a big trip, but having a nice set on hand is much smarter, and we bet there will be some amazing deals on Prime Day.

Digital camera

If you love taking photos on your smartphone but wish you could capture even better shots, you need a digital camera.

Drone

We love playing with drones and have caught some epic aerial footage, so if a drone is on sale and you've been waiting to try one out, we urge you to buy one.

Cookware set

Most of us have a random mix of pots and pans at home, so Prime Day is a great day to buy a shiny new complete and complementary set.
