An Instant Pot, Plus 4 More Incredibly Useful Holiday Gifts From Aldi
Ambiano Classic Stand Mixer
One of the chain's most popular items from last holiday season, this stand mixer is Aldi's answer to the KitchenAid, but at a much lower price point. For $60 (compared to several hundred for its competitor), you (or the person you gift it to) will be blending and whipping your way to holiday dessert bliss. Bonus points for the turquoise finish. This one hits stores on October 17.
Ambiano 6-Quart Multicooker
Without question, the Instant Pot is one of the most in-demand products of the year. The popular 6-quart size—one of Amazon Prime Day's hottest items—retails for about $100, give or take. Aldi's 6-quart multicooker, on the other hand, will be available for a cool $70 on November 7 and has almost all of the same features. It even looks pretty identical!
Crofton Cast Iron Cookware
Aldi's version of our very favorite cast iron cookware", Le Creuset, is just as sturdy and attractive but a lot less pricey. They'll be selling a 4.6-quart French Oven ($25) and 1.75-quart saucepan ($15) starting September 19. Then on October 24, they'll unveil a 6-quart French oven ($30), and all pieces will be available in red and grey.
Sous Vide Precision Immersion Cooker
Sous vide immersion blenders are a relatively new obsession for at-home cooks, so odds are this one—available December 5 for all you last-minute shoppers—will be a big hit under the Christmas tree. At $50, it's an affordable yet impressive little gadget.
Wine Advent Calendar
Forget chocolate: Aldi is stepping up the countdown to Christmas with two delicious Advent calendars—one filled with wine and one with cheese—starting September 7 at $70 each. Treat yourself to imported mini cheeses like Gouda and Havarti or small bottles of Malbec and Pinot Grigio—think of as holiday self-care!
