The Best Cookware Deals

Chloe Jeong / Spruce Eats

Even if you do most of your stovetop cooking in a single pan, every kitchen needs a variety of cookware. A nonstick skillet allows you to fry an egg with ease, while a grill pan is ideal for steaks and a stockpot is essential for soups. And there are all kinds of next-level items worth stocking once you’ve taken care of all the basics. 

If you're looking to spruce up for the New Year, retailers are ready for you with deep discounts across their entire sites. Sur la Table is offering an additional 15 to 55 percent off select items during its Cookware Event sale. And through January 20, Best Buy is hosting a Four Day Sale across its store, including small appliances and cookware.

Whether you’re seeking a durable Dutch oven or a high-quality bakeware set, we've rounded up the best cookware deals we could find, from skillets to stockpots to bundt pans, all for products that will come in handy for your first kitchen and beyond.

We update these sales weekly, but products go fast! If something is out of stock or not on sale, check back next week for a batch of new deals.
