What is Amazon’s Prime Pantry?

Amazon customers in the US can take advantage of a "new shopping experience" by having their groceries delivered to their door.

The online retailer has announced the launch of Prime Pantry, which allows shoppers to get their food items through the company's website.

Members of the Prime loyalty scheme can fill a 20kg box to stock up their cupboards, but will not be able to order fresh food.

The Amazon website says: "Prime members can shop popular household essentials and have them conveniently delivered.

"Adding your first Prime Pantry item to Cart starts a Prime Pantry box. As you shop, you see that each Pantry item tells you what percentage of a Pantry box it fills based on its size and weight."

Users will see how full their box is getting with each item checked off the list, and the service is ideal for those heavy-to-carry items.

There is a flat delivery rate charge of 5.99 dollars (£3.56).

Meanwhile, Amazon has also launched another useful product for shoppers, named Dash.

The barcode scanning device allows users to compile an online shopping list to restock those nearly-used-up items.

Dash currently only works with delivery service Amazon Fresh - available in San Francisco, southern California and some areas of Seattle - and which deals in electronics, food and other home goods.

The services could be rolled out worldwide in the future.
