We’re excited to not only bring to our customers an unmatched selection of everything they could ever need for their kitchens, but also deliver on fast shipping for the brands they know and love.”

The Wayfair Kitchen is the go-to place for every kitchen and tabletop need with thousands of products spanning dozens of categories. Shoppers can choose from Wayfair Basics, an exclusive collection of style-smart, quality household essentials at value prices, to high-performance cookware and appliances from well-known brands including Calphalon, Cuisinart, KitchenAid, Vitamix and Zwilling J.A. Henckels. For nearly-weds, the Wayfair Registry delivers a seamless experience that includes expert tips, ideas and inspiration as well a dedicated team of registry specialists who are available to offer free advice and consultation every step of the way. In addition, the registry’s Group Gifting feature unlocks Wayfair’s more than 8 million products to couples, including hot tubs, fire pits, bedroom sets, sofas and mattresses, as well as top-of-the-line housewares items that will last a lifetime.

“In addition to classic kitchen staples, shoppers can find the latest, innovative kitchen gadgets and appliances at Wayfair.com - from air fryers, blenders and soda streams to a variety connected electrics,” added Ryan Gilchrist, Wayfair’s General Manager of Housewares. “We’re also seeing a growing interest among health-conscious consumers for items such as vegetable spiralizers, juicers and dehydrators. This trend is particularly notable among Wayfair’s Registry shoppers and millennials, who are looking for tools and gadgets that allow them to cook at home with ease, as well as smaller versions of classics like Vitamix blenders and KitchenAid stand mixers, which offer convenience and fit nicely in small spaces.”
