OUR FAVE COOKWARE & BAKEWARE DEALS
With almost 5,000 five-star reviews, this extra large sheet pan will be your go-to this holiday season when you have last minute visitors: roast vegetables, cook meats and fish, or bake cakes. It distributes heat evenly, non-stick and is durable.
We got this set at the beginning of the year and use it constantly. It’s got over 10,000 4.5 star reviews. If you follow me on instagram or have taken my cooking classes, you’ll see this is the same set I use when I cook fish to get the crispy skin. I also recommend this for starters when cooking steak. Though I prefer a cast-iron pan when cooking steak, this can also be used whether you’re using a gas or induction stove top.
Almost 7,000 5-star reviews on amazon, this iron skillet is great for your casseroles. It has a beautiful enamel coating and comes in different colors to match your kitchen decor. If you’re one to take care of your beautiful kitchenware, you won’t have trouble maintaining the look of this casserole. Marinade, cook and serve straight from this gorgeous piece of cookware.
This enameled cast-iron Dutch oven is usually over $100. This week you can grab it for $69. It has 35,000 five-star reviews. From baking bread to simmering stews this holiday season, this is one piece you want to have in your kitchen arsenal.
OUR FAVE KITCHEN APPLIANCE DEALS
For less than $20, it’s worth getting a rice cooker if Asian food is always on your menu rotation. Coming from a Cuban household, we made rice in a regular pot. But rice cookers are something we can’t live without these days, especially with my Filipino wife.
With a click of a button, you get perfect steamed white rice each time. Keep an eye out on our reels where I’ll have Toni show you the secrets to fluffy white rice. Spoiler alert: she never measures with a cup but it’s always perfect. If you’re Filipino, you know this not-so-secret.
It’s time to upgrade to a powerful and reliable blender you’ll use for years. From smoothies to sauces, I cannot stress the importance of having a blender in your kitchen arsenal if you’re a serious home cook. Vitamix is the name to trust in blenders and it’s currently $498 from $550.
A whopping 42,000 4.5 star ratings and currently 13% off at $33 (with coupon) from $40. An immersion blender is great for making smoothies, vinaigrettes, dressings, froth milk, make soups without the extra clean up of the big blender. It comes with a whisk attachment to use for your whipped cream or eggs. You can make peanut butter, salsa and vegetable purees. Overall it’s a great tool that will save you time and it doesn’t take a lot of space in your kitchen.
OUR FAVORITE DINING & ENTERTAINMENT DEAL
At 41% off, there’s no reason not to own these appetizer tongs for your next dinner reception party at home. They come in gold and silver. They’re adorable and elevate your appetizer presentation whether you use it for serving your sugar cubes, candies, lemon slices, cookies, marshmallows, shredded cheese, grated carrots, jam, soft cheese, pickle slices or ice cubes etc. Serving for tea party, candy bar, coffee, breakfast, home party, wedding or daily use.
Made after the original 1941 mule mug with food grade copper, this premium mug set makes a great gift for the master mixologist in your life, the hostess with the mostest or yourself! It comes with straws and a jigger, making it different from other Moscow mule mug sets you may see in the market.
OUR FAVE UTENSIL DEALS
Built to last, these German-engineered knives boast 1,500 5-star reviews. I would say these make a great beginner knife set for the serious home cook. I will be honest and say that you probably would not have any real use for the middle knife. If you already own a serrated knife, you’re golden. The first and the last knives (left and right) are two you’ll always be using.
Cut, slice, chop, julienne and chiffonade with this multi-functional knife. Japanese knives for me are easier to sharpen. They’re ultra sharp and retain their edge a lot longer. This chef’s knife is currently 33% off of $50. An 8″ inch chef’s knife will probably be your most used and most popular knife in your home kitchen. It’s a great deal to take advantage of especially if you’re looking to upgrade and level up your knife game.
OUR FAVORITE TECH GADGET DEALS
Whether you’re cooking alone and need some help with measurements from Alexa, sipping your morning coffee to “Easy like Sunday morning” tunes, or having a dinner party with a hopping playlist on Spotify, and echo dot is a great companion. Along with the coffee, it’s one of the first things Toni turns on in the morning, setting the mood and vibe for the day.
115,000 4.5 star reviews on this gadget makes it a no-brainer to take advantage of the deal. This is a must in the kitchen. Currently $10, this isn’t just for meat. You can use it for frying (to get accurate on the temperature of your oil – essential for consistency), helps in cooking chicken to the perfect temperature..which means, you won’t overcook it and get rubbery meat and you can also use it for caramels. It goes up to 572F which is more than some others. With the holidays coming up, make this inexpensive gadget a must-have in your kitchen.
Is this the year to organize your pantry? This set includes 4 size combinations making it ideal for storing almost anything from spaghetti, baking supplies, cereal, flour, sugar, oats, pasta, rice, coffee, tea, snacks, nuts and other dry goods.
Made with food-grade thick plastic, each container has a 4-sided locking lid with a silicone seal ring, which helps prevent any sort of spillage, keep food fresh, and preserve flavors. The lids are interchangeable, convenient for use.
It also comes with a pen, chalkboard labels, and 9 measuring spoons. Not just for cereal, you can use it for flours, pasta, sugar, brown sugar, nuts, cereal, beans, rice, herbs, red beans, peanuts, oats, seasoning blends, chocolate chips, mushroom powder, coconut flakes, noodles, biscuits, sausages, soft treats, almonds, freeze-dried snacks, etc…pretty much anything you keep in your pantry.
