We're only a week into 2021, but already the entire ritual of gift-giving and the accompanying holiday season feel like a distant, eggnog-filled dream. If you're sensing your kitchen tools and appliances are also well, old news, you'll probably be interested in this fresh sale to start another year of quarantine cooking off right.

Zwilling, the German kitchen manufacturer, has added a ton of cookware, skillets, and knives to its ever-growing sale section. Prices on some of our favorite cookware, like Dutch ovens, cast iron skillets, ceramic baking dishes, and knives, have been slashed by up to 50%. Even if you don't necessarily need something, it's quite possible you'll still add a handy paring knife to your cart.

One item you'll certainly want to snag is a Staub cast iron frying pan, which has been slashed from $286 to $150. The French enameled black interior lends itself well to searing steaks and frying bacon—without having to worry about sticking—and the raised sides help prevent splattering that freshly laundered apron. The pre-seasoned cherry red pan is complete with two pouring spouts for excess fat removal. One happy shopper deemed it outstanding, writing that they "even baked biscuits in this pan—it's really versatile."

For more cast iron love, take a look at Staub's round 5.5-quart cocotte, which is 47% off in a number of colors, including black, white, and red. The cocotte is big enough to simmer healthy soups that'll last you through the winter, and the self-basting spiked lid ensures excellent braising for meats and stews.

Zwilling is also running a sale on smaller-but-equally-important kitchen necessities, like this five-star rocking santoku knife ($70, down from $150), which has been forged from a single piece of steel. Staub's 10-inch ceramic baking dishes, the ideal vehicle for roasting vegetables, have also been marked down to just $30, and this Zwilling Motion 3-piece nesting skillet set is 60% off.

Even if your kitchen is theoretically bursting with equipment, there's no reason not to add some upgrades, especially when Zwilling's sale section is filled with so many not-to-be missed bargains. Keep reading to check out our picks before they potentially sell out for good.
