If cooking feels like a chore thanks to dull knives and crusty cookware, it's probably time for an upgrade. And while quality kitchen tools are worthy investments, we'll take a discount when we can — and that's why our ears perked up when heard about Sur La Table's Cookware and Cutlery Sale. With everything from Staub stoneware to Zwilling knife sets for deep discounts — we spotted over 70% off one Staub beauty — these are deals you don't want to miss. You'll even save on Le Creuset, the brand beloved by Ina Garten herself. But this sale ends Monday, so you'll want to act fast. Here's what we're eyeing:
Zwilling J.A. Henckels Four Star 8-Piece Knife Block Set
This particular knife series was introduced nearly 50 years ago, and hey — if it ain't broke, don't fix it. With over 1,200 perfect ratings, reviewers love this set, which includes a paring knife, serrated utility knife, prep knife, bread knife, chef’s knife, sharpening steel and kitchen shears, as well as an attractive beechwood storage block to keep everything organized. The ice-hardened stainless-steel blades are corrosion-resistant, too.
"My grandfather has had this same set for as long as I can remember," wrote a reviewer. "He always taught me that investing in quality would save you money in the long run! So of course I bought the same set for myself, and couldn't be happier with these knives. Sharp, feel great in my hands and are a joy to cook with!"
If you're only in the market for the essentials, this less-expensive set is for you. Complete with a paring knife, prep knife, chef’s knife and shears, it features carbon stainless-steel blades that are durable and sharp, but also easy to hone. Plus, the acacia wood block will look lovely in any kitchen, and we're not mad about that 60% discount, either.
"Perfect starter set!" exclaimed a happy home cook. "Three important knives, [and] including the kitchen shears is brilliant. The feel and quality are amazing."
Every home kitchen needs a Dutch oven, and Staub's are revered as some of the most durable out there. This 5-quart model will hold a good amount of food without taking up too much room in your cupboard, though we wouldn't blame you if you wanted to keep it on your stove for display. It's made of enameled cast iron for excellent heat retention, and the self-basting lid helps distribute juices to keep dishes from drying out. Grab it while it's a whopping 72% off.
"It's high quality, sturdy and makes one heck of a beef roast," raved a fan. "It heats evenly and retains heat for a long time. 10/10 would order again, but I don't have to because this pan will outlive me!"
Of course, if you're cooking for a crowd, you can't go wrong with this 6.75-quart Le Creuset beauty, which was designed to be more lightweight per quart than other premium cast iron cookware on the market. This one is a bit more shallow than standard Dutch ovens, but it has a large surface area that makes it ideal for browning meat and reducing liquids. It comes in 13 colors, so good luck choosing!
"I use it daily, it's the workhorse of my kitchen," shared a satisfied shopper. "Had it three or four years, and it's clearly going to last me decades. Wasn't sure if I wanted a braising pan or another Dutch oven and then this solved my needs for both."
This pretty pan's lid is clear, allowing you to keep tabs on your food while it cooks, and without letting any steam out. It's also oven-safe up to 425 degrees and works on any kind of stovetop. Choose from eight colors.
"A very attractive and practical pan," declared an impressed buyer. "I needed a large skillet and was planning to get a cast iron one. This is so much prettier for serving, and it's easier to clean. ... I've used it multiple times already for many meals, including stir-fry, pasta dishes, shrimp scampi and cornbread."
On sale for just $25 each (over 60% off), these Staub bakers can be used for everything from cakes and brownies to lasagnas and casseroles. They're lovely enough to go from oven to table during dinner parties, and their enamel glaze makes for easy cleaning, in addition to being scratch- and stain-resistant. Get them in red, turquoise or ivory.
"These are my absolute favorite baking dishes!" gushed a gleeful reviewer. "I use them for baking, casseroles and serving dishes. I love that their classic clean design can be used with any of my table settings and decor. I look forward to purchasing more companion pieces."
