In recent years, multiple excellent cookware brands have popped up with a direct-to-consumer model— no outside retailers, no fuss, just great tools that home cooks and chefs can order directly from them. Though we always appreciate our usual suspects from big box stores, these tools offer something a little special, especially when it comes to gifts for the holiday season.
For Black Friday 2020, several of our favorite brands are offering great deals on quality tools we’d buy for our chef friends, our loved ones, and ourselves. We’ve rounded up some of the best cookware deals across these DTC sites. Read on for all of the details on your future favorite cooking tools.
Cast iron lovers will be over the moon with Field Company’s offerings. Save up to 40% on their cast iron skillets by buy-on-get-one, buy two get one free, or buy three get two free. Their No.8 Skillet and Lid Set is $195 (was $220), the cast iron care kits are 25% off across the site, and the three-piece cast iron cookware set is $315 (usually $415). We’re partial to the starter sets as gifts, the classic No.8 skillet and care kit is a good buy.
Our favorite deal: the Always Pan, $95 (originally $145)
We can’t say enough about Our Place’s Always Pan, and for Black Friday the brand is running a steal—you’ll need to be patient about shipment but we promise the tool is worth the wait. Shoppers can also save big on tabletop sets complete with drinking glasses and ceramic dinnerware. Even the full dinner set, with the Always Pan and tabletop set altogether, is just $220 (usually $290).
Our favorite deal: the 8, $60 (originally $75)
Caraway regularly sells out of its popular colorful cookware sets, and right now you can order one for $100 off. The brand’s deals are all about bundles for Black Friday. Get 10% off orders $225+, 15% off $450+, and 20% off spending $525 or more. Coordinate your whole kitchen by getting the linens set as well, now $135 ($30 off) for three dish towels, 4 oven mitts and potholders, and an apron.
Smithey’s beautiful cast iron tools are polished and pre-seasoned to give them a signature copper hue. The cookware works from oven to stovetop as well as live fire—it’s as true quality as cast iron can be. They will not crack or chip and come with a complete guarantee from the company. Their holiday bundle offers the 5.5-quart Dutch oven with the No.10 skillet, which also fits the Dutch oven lid for $35 off, great for a serious home cook. The 3-piece skillet set is just $399 (originally $460), and the No. 12 combo skillet and griddle is also $25 off.
Great Jones has great timing for their very first and only sale of the year. Get 20% off all orders over $100 through Monday (but don’t count on all the best items stay in stock until then). We’ve tried and loved the classic Holy Sheet as well as newcomers: the Hot Dish and the Sweetie Pie plate. These are the gifts that bakers and cooks will love.
Equal Parts is offering 20% off sitewide, with no minimums required. Their bestsellers include the Essential Pan, the Fry Pan, and the Chef’s Knife. The full cookware set is now $325 (was $363) so if you’re looking for a cookware overhaul, now is the time. If you’re into kitchen organization too, their sister brand Open Spaces has the same great deals on bins, shelves, and more kitchen storage ideas.
