Here are our five favorite discounted sets.
Great tools can make all of the difference in a home cook’s kitchen—especially when it comes to things you’ll have for a long time, like knives and cookware. It can be tough to pony up the cash, though, because quality cookware is often very expensive.
That’s why when a sale (like this one from Williams-Sonoma) comes around, we have to share it with you. Great cookware will help you be a better cook, and will last you for years. Just don’t wait to invest in a great set—this sale is for today only.
Here, our five favorite cookware sets from this sale.
All-Clad d5 Stainless-Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set
Okay, we know this is a BIG investment, but this 10-piece set is almost 50 percent off right now. We love All-Clad for its natural stick resistance, which will help you use less butter and oil when you’re cooking. Plus, these pots and pans are oven- and broiler-safe up to 600 degrees and can go right in the dishwasher. Bonus: There’s a lifetime warranty.
Le Creuset Signature Cast-Iron Saucepan
This sale is crazy—right now, the 2 1/4-quart saucepan is actually CHEAPER than the 1 1/2-quart version, so you can get a Le Creuset saucepan to fit your favorite soups and stews for a fraction of the price. Plus, it comes in 10 colors to match your kitchen (we love the mint and rose!)
Calphalon Elite Nonstick Fry Pan Set
This is the ultimate set if you’re trying to upgrade your pans without spending an arm and a leg. Originally $250, these 8- and 10- inch nonstick pans are discounted to $71.96. Unlike some nonstick pans, these are safe to use with metal utensils, and are oven safe up to 500 degrees.
Williams Sonoma Signature Thermo-Clad Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set
If you’ve recently Marie Kondo’d your kitchen, and want to replace your pots and pans with new ones that “spark joy,” these ones will definitely do the trick. This set comes with 10- and 12-inch fry pans, 2-quart and 4-quart sauce pans with lids, a 4 1/2-quart saute pan with a lid, and an 8-quart stockpot with a lid. Talk about a kitchen overhaul! Oh, and this set is currently 57 percent off its original price of $1500.
Lodge Cast-Iron Round Fry Pan
If you’re looking for a kitchen workhorse that will last you the rest of your life (and your grandkids' lives too), you need to buy a cast-iron skillet ASAP. This one comes in sizes ranging from 6 1/2 inches to 15 inches—opt for the small one if you often cook for one person, choose the largest size for searing steaks or making skillet cornbread.
