Amazon wants to make you a better home chef. The retail giant is bundling a free year of Food Network Kitchen with select Amazon devices, which also happen to be on sale.
Currently, you can get the Echo Show 8 with a 1-year Food Network Kitchen subscription for $99.99 (opens in new tab). That's $30 cheaper than the price of the Echo Show 8 alone. Alternatively, you can get the Amazon Fire TV Stick with a 1-year Food Network Kitchen subscription for $29.99 (opens in new tab). That's $10 off the Fire TV Stick and you get a free Food Network sub ($39 value) for free.

Food Network Kitchen offers live and on-demand cooking classes for $39.99 per year. (You get one year free with today's Amazon deal). In our Food Network Kitchen subscription review, we were impressed by the variety of recipes available. In additional to traditional courses, you'll find recipe collections for cocktail lovers, Instant Pot users, vegetarians, and dinner party hosts.
As for the device itself, in our Echo Show 8 review we concluded that the Echo Show 8 is the best Alexa smart display ever. It's the middle-man in Amazon's Echo Show lineup, and it hits the sweet spot with regards to price and power.
It features an 8-inch 1280 x 800 resolution display, stereo sound, and built-in Alexa support, which means you can control it via voice commands.
Keep in mind that both the Echo Show 8 and Fire TV Stick have been about $10 cheaper before, but this is the best bundle we've seen, especially if you're a Food Network fan.
