Amazon Market Watch: Data shows why Cuisinart, Hamilton Beach are likely leaders in kitchen products this holiday season

The final quarter of 2023 is just around the bend, and for ecommerce brands and retailers, that means the start of the busiest shopping season of the year.

It won’t be long before consumers turn their attention to holiday prep and shopping. In fact, many already have: Jungle Scout Consumer Trends data shows that 27% of consumers started holiday shopping before September, and another 28% will start before the end of October.

During the holiday season, lots of time is spent in the kitchen, from baking cookies to playing host to family and friends. The extra time spent around the table also means extra sales for a range of kitchen products. Plus, many kitchen products – from nifty appliances to cookware sets – are popular gifts, giving sales an extra boost from October through December.

Which kitchen products will see the biggest sales spikes on Amazon this holiday season, and which brands are likely to lead? To find out, we’re using Jungle Scout Cobalt data to look back on Q4 2022 sales trends. We’ll dish out insights to help brands and retailers stay ahead of the holiday curve as we bid adieu to 2023.

Let’s get cooking!

Popular Holiday Season Kitchen Products

Amazon’s kitchen category is broad in scope, but let’s zoom in on sub-categories that are especially popular with holiday-season shoppers. How did these sub-categories perform last year, and which brands and products are likely to lead this year?

From Q3 to Q4 2022, cookware sales on Amazon sizzled with a 33% boost, leading to a 53% increase in revenue quarter-over-quarter (QoQ).

Key Takeaways for Kitchen Brands During the 2023 Holiday Season

Reflecting back on historical data from previous years is one of the most valuable tools for building strategies for the future. This is especially true for highly competitive shopping seasons and product types that are consistently in demand from year to year.

Don’t miss our upcoming webinar on using historical data to report success and measure ROI on Amazon. Register now to save your seat for the October 4th event.

The Cobalt data we’ve explored today highlights several key takeaways that can help brands and retailers stay agile as they promote their kitchen products stay agile during this year’s holiday rush:

  • Expect market share shakeups. Market share is fluid, especially as competition rises during the holiday season. As brands ramp up advertising and other efforts, the competition for market share hits a boiling point and new leaders can arise. Of the 12 product markets explored in this post, only 1 retained the same top 5 market share leaders from Q3 to Q4, 2022 – and none retained all 5 market share leaders in the same positions. That means there’s a significant opportunity to grow your market share in these and similar product niches during the holidays.
  • Anticipate likely brand leaders. While market share showed a lot of movement during 2022, some brands consistently led in multiple markets, making them likely leaders in the Kitchen category this year as well. Cuisinart, for example, was a top 5 market share leader in 6 out of the 12 niches included here. Hamilton Beach and OXO led in 4 out of 12, and Kitchenaid led in 3 out of 12. At the same time, plenty of brands that didn’t hit the top 5 in market share for their niches still saw incredible sales growth for their products.
  • Opportunity lasts all season long. In the sub-categories we’ve reviewed in this post, sales began ramping up in October and continued growing throughout November and December. Because many kitchen products are also popular gifts, increased sales aren’t just limited to the earliest part of the season when consumers are planning for holiday-season cooking. 

Products like cookware and small appliances will be popular with gift shoppers and last-minute shoppers, too. Plus, consumers shop all the way from September right up to Christmas, so they’re on the lookout for deals and great gifts even before fall officially begins.

With these takeaways as guideposts, brands and retailers can build holiday ecommerce strategies that leverage the unique opportunities in Amazon’s kitchen products category.
