The Best Cookware Deals

Chloe Jeong / Spruce Eats

Even if you do most of your stovetop cooking in a single pan—a perfectly seasoned cast-iron skillet, a stainless steel pot handed down from your parents—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. If you’re an avid baker, you also need a variety of baking sheets, plus muffin pans, loaf pans, and cake pans. And there are all kinds of next-level items worth stocking once you’ve taken care of all the basics.  

From brands like Wayfair to All-Clad, there's no shortage of cooking deals—if you know where to look. Sur La Table currently has a flash sale going on for a number of La Marque pans with deals up to 70 percent off.

Whether you’re looking for a durable Dutch oven or a high-quality bakeware set, we’ve got you covered. We 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.

This year, retailers are already gearing up for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with weekly deals, early sneak peeks and more. Because supply chain issues may continue to cause shortages through the rest of the year, we recommend if you see a great deal on something you want or are hoping to gift, you grab it now.

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.
