The Best Black Friday Cookware & Kitchen Deals (2021): Amazon, Our Place, Target, and More

The best Black Friday cookware deals are live right now, waiting to be snapped up by intrepid shoppers who have been waiting for months to pull the trigger on those Le Creusets, Our Place Always Pans, and All-Clad sets. If you are one of those deal hounds, get ready to gloat—we’re seeing some incredible prices on air fryers, KitchenAid stand mixers, and other kitchen appliances in addition to pots and pans galore. These are the best kitchen deals we’ve seen all year, and with very real supply chain issues and shipping delays, don’t wait to snap them up. Below you’ll find a curated selection of retailers we love whose Black Friday sales are in full swing. Happy shopping!

Not a drill! Save $210 on a KitchenAid stand mixer! That’s almost 50% off! My editor will hate these exclamation points but they are coming from a place of genuine excitement! This is one of the best Black Friday cookware deals out there, in my book.

KitchenAid Professional 5-Quart Stand Mixer

Target’s also got your best deals on Instant Pots, Crockpots, all the pots. Save 54% on this 9-functions-in-1 6-quart Instant Pot and get to braising with this Crockpot collab with Magnolia—only $16 during this Black Friday sale.

The entire CRUXGG range is 20% at Target for Black Friday. (This is culinary collective Ghetto Gastro’s line of kitchen appliances, all of which look like futuristic, sentient robots.) We like the 2-slice toaster and air fryer, which isn’t not Robocop. As always with CRUXGG, 5% of profits go to organizations tackling food insecurity.

CRUXGG SATA 2-Slice Toaster


It’s a Dutch oven bonanza! This 8-quart oval Le Creuset is a whopping $140 off, and Staub’s 7-quart round cocottes are on deep discount as well. That pork shoulder isn’t going to braise itself.

If you’re in the market for an espresso machine, now’s the time to buy. The De’Longhi La Specialista Presitigio is over $400 off. You’ll also find deals on the Fellow gooseneck electric kettle, the Vitamix E310 Explorian blender, and our favorite sous vide machine, the Joule by Breville.

Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender, 48 oz. Container


Proud, loud Asian cooking that is 20%. The sitewide discount will be applied at checkout, and orders over $35 ship free. We love these sauce and seasoning packets, which help you get favorites like Filipino sisig and Korean bulgogi on the table in no time at all.


Saving galore over at BezosWorld on items big (save 25% on Roombas) and small (can you ever have too many Stasher bags?). There are too many deals to do justice here, so head on over to our separate round-up of Amazon kitchen deals and go nuts.


The ubiquitous Always Pan is on sale for under $100, or save $40 on the Our Place Perfect Pot (read our full review here).

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! This hefty walnut cutting board comes with a juice trench and is almost 50% off—a good deal on a piece that can be used for kitchen prep or serving.

I’d also recommend picking up a set or two of these versatile drinking glasses, which are 20% off and come in a range of 70’s-cool colors. I use them for ice cream and other desserts as well as water.


Another excellent deal on an excellent cutting board: the Five Two by Food52 bamboo board is on sale for $40. What sets this product apart is a little notch for your phone, so you can consult your recipe or FaceTime your umma while chopping carrots.

Nordstrom has some molten-hot deals on high-quality cookware as well. This 10-piece stainless steel All-Clad set is 46% off—take care of it, and it’ll take care of you. And if you’ve always felt lukewarm about leaving a clunky plastic water carbonator out on your counter, Aarke’s sparkling water maker—designed in Sweden, of course—is a sleek, high-end alternative. It’s 25% off at Nordstrom as well as at Bed Bath & Beyond and Amazon.


Save on knives (like this chef’s knife, which is over 50% off) as well as on Staub Dutch ovens (score a 4-quart cocotte for under $200) and the Zwilling Fresh & Save vacuum sealer starter set. This food storage set comes with six reusable containers and a handheld vacuum pump so that your leftovers stay fresher for longer. You’ll never toss a brown avocado half again.


Outdoor entertaining was the only type of entertaining I did last year, and the BioLite FirePit+ made wintery evenings in the backyard not only bearable but downright cozy. Right now you can save almost $100 on the FirePit Cooking Bundle, which includes the wood and charcoal-burning FirePit+, a cast-iron griddle, a grill lid, and a set of grilling utensils.

We also like their USB-rechargeable headlamps—an essential tool for evening grilling—and BioLite AlpenGlow500 USB lanterns, which are 20% off. They’re rechargeable, can be left out in the rain, and have a range of settings from “flickering candle” to full-on color-changing light show.

BioLite AlpenGlow Lantern


Hive is one of our favorite online grocery stores for sustainable products with a social good component; they make discovering great new brands easy. Use code HOLIDAY for 15% off your purchase of $75, 20% off $100, and 25% off $125 or more. I’d recommend meeting that minimum spend by stocking up on Big Spoon Roasters nut butter and these reusable vegetable preservation bags.

Vejibag Vegetable Preservation Bag


You’ll find deals all over Fly by Jing’s site, from 20% off their iconic chili crisp to 40% off the Sichuan salsero set, which we featured in our round-up of the best gifts for food people (have you checked it out yet?). Know what’s going to get you through winter? Dumplings.

Fly By Jing Sichuan Chile Crisp


How’d your turkey turn out? If the answer is “could have been better,” consider grabbing a meat and oven thermometer from Thermoworks. The Thermapen One—lightning fast, frighteningly accurate—is over $20 off, and the DOT probe-style alarm thermometer will ensure your oven stays honest.

Thermoworks Thermapen ONE


Save up to $120 on Dyson cordless stick vacuums (as essential a kitchen tool as a microplane) like the lightweight V8 Absolute and the Cyclone V10 Animal, which is great for houses with pets.


Special for the holidays, Bamboozle is offering their 7-piece mixing bowl set as a bundle with their measuring cups and spoons for $86. Considering that just the bowls alone usually retail for $80, that’s some value right there. Best of all, everything is made of biodegradable bamboo fiber.


Get. Those. Pans. Specifically Chris Morocco’s favorite Hestan NanoBond Titanium Essential Pan at the lowest price we’ve seen. (You can also find it on sale at Amazon, but not as cheap.) It’s also worth checking out their new Insignia line, a collaboration with Thomas Keller. The universal lid is a terrific gift for someone with limited kitchen space.


Take 30% off almost everything at this felted Merino wool emporium including sets of four round or square coasters, which we love for their wicking properties and sophisticated colorways. Snag some trivets for holiday oven-to-table serving as well.

4-Pack of Merino Wool Felt Coasters


Score 30% off the first month of Mysa’s Natural Wine Club using code BLACKFRIDAY—that’s six bottles of low intervention wine from small producers for $105. This is one-stop holiday shopping, in my book.


Pair that wine subscription with a Japanese snack box subscription from Bokksu. For Black Friday, take $20 off your first box using code BF2021.


Save up to 20% at Material, where you’ll have the option to donate some or all of your discount to Star Route Farm’s food access program. I have my eye on this serving bowl, a limited-edition collaboration with Soil Baker (this collection is among our favorite ceramic dinner sets).

If you’re interested in upgrading your knife storage situation, Material’s The Stand is a minimalist statement piece that will ensure your blades don’t get worn down sliding in and out of a knife block. Pick up a recycled cutting board in a bold hue while you’re at it.

Stock up on everything you’ll need for wassail and gingerbread over at the Spice House. Spend $50 and you’ll get a 10% discount, $75 for a 15% discount, and take 20% off orders over $100 using code BLACKFRIDAY.


Save up to $55 on coffee gift subscriptions over at Atlas Coffee Club, one of BA’s favorite coffee subscription services. Or sign up for a subscription box yourself and get your first bag free.

Atlas Coffee Club Subscription


Take 20% off all apéritifs at Haus, including full-sized bottles of their new pomegranate rosemary flavor (festive!) and their customizable sampler kit, which comes with four 200 mL bottles (gifty!).


It’s all gravy over at DTC cookware company Misen, where you can get 25% off almost the entire site with the code GRAVYTRAIN25. Their 7-quart Dutch oven—one of our favorites—is already reasonably priced at $165, so this is a great deal for a quality piece of cookware.

And grab some knives while you’re at it. Misen’s serrated knife makes our list of best bread knives, and their steak knives or three-piece knife set (you only need three) are extremely giftable.


Here’s a weird one. Spend $100 or more on vintage-inspired puzzles at Le Puzz (including this juicy fruit salad still life), and you’ll get a free tote bag—plus, while supplies last, a randomly selected piece of fake food from their prop closet. I’m hoping for the baked beans.


Everything is 20% off over at Spicewalla, including their Kitchen Essentials pack of 18 spices—a great gift for a recent grad setting up their first apartment or your mom whose smoked paprika expired last millennium. Orders over $25 ship free.


Save 25% on The Golden State Capsule from Brightland, which includes its two original olive oils, four infused olive oils (the basil and garlic are especially good), and two vinegars.


Remember how yesterday you swore that this would be the last Thanksgiving with paper plates? North Carolina-based ceramics studio Haand makes some of our favorite servingware and dinner sets, and for Black Friday, they’re offering 10% off purchases of $100, 15% off $250, and 20% off $500 or more.

3-Piece Ripple Dinner Setting


Take 25% off sitewide at W&P, including their full range of ice trays and molds. Their silicone Everyday Ice Tray is best in class; every house needs at least two.

W&P Peak Silicone Everyday Ice Tray


Senior editor Sarah Jampel is responsible for these camouflage chocolate fudge brownies, so if she says Partake’s vegan and gluten-free blondie and brownie mixes are good, pay attention. They’re 25% off during the Black Friday weekend with free shipping on orders over $35.


Take 20% off jcoco’s Prism Box, a 10-bar chocolate sampler that’s a perfect gift for the person you don’t know that well but suspect might like chocolate. As with all jcoco purchase, a portion of the proceeds go to partner food banks to fight hunger.

jcoco Chocolate Prism Gift Box


It’s no secret that we don’t love the name and branding, but LesserEvil’s popcorn is undeniably good. Take 25% off with the code THANKSAVINGS, and be sure to throw in a bag of the limited edition white chocolate matcha flavor.


Use code GANXIE15 to take 15% off orders over $60 from Yun Hai Taiwanese Pantry. A great place to start would be this soy paste, which made my brussels sprouts the hit of Thanksgiving this year.
