If you’ve watched Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa on TV, you know how graceful and magical she is in the kitchen. Ina whips up beautiful meals for herself and her husband, Jeffrey, but she spent many years as a professional chef and caterer.
That’s why we trust her implicitly when it comes to high-quality cookware. Among her favorite brands are All-Clad and Le Creuset, both known for their sturdy construction and hefty price tags. So we were thrilled when we learned that right now, Sur La Table is having an epic sale of up to to 55 percent off on certain All Clad and Le Creuset products.
These pieces will last a lifetime. Now's the moment to grab them for yourself or for someone on your holiday list.
Everyone needs a top-notch 12-inch pan, and few are better than the All-Clad D5 Brushed Stainless Steel Skillet. With a five-layer construction and patented stainless-steel core that heats evenly, it's perfect for induction cooking and also great on a gas stove. The ergonomic handle and tight-fitting lid are a pleasure. You can feel like a pro while frying eggs and bacon or searing a steak. This price drop is wild: It's down from $225 to just $150, saving you $75. The perfect gift for a young person just beginning to get serious about cooking (and, of course, you need one for yourself).
All-Clad’s stainless steel saucepans are great for making sauces and soups. The All-Clad D3 Stainless Steel Saucepan has a thick aluminum core for efficient heat distribution, and the stainless steel finish is not only durable but is also attractive. The saucepans are available in various sizes, but the 3-quart model is the one currently on sale. All have sturdy solid-cast handles and lids that fit tightly to hold in moisture while cooking. Save $80 here; the price is down from $200 to just $120.
A high-quality roasting pan is great not just for Thanksgiving turkey but also for chicken, beef or duck the rest of the year. The All-Clad Stainless Steel Roasting Pan is up to any task, thanks to its durable construction, warp-resistant bonded base and straight sides that help prevent splatter. It comes with a nonstick V-shaped rack that lets you collect juices at the bottom of the pan while keeping the skin crisp. The current price is fantastic — it’s down from $200 to $100. That’s a 50 percent discount!
Dutch ovens are the perfect vessel for large family meals, whether roasting a chicken, deep-frying, or simmering a ragu on low for hours (can't you just smell it from here?). Le Creuset makes some of the best dutch ovens out there, and they're beautiful, to boot. The Le Creuset Signature Dutch Oven is cast iron and enamel, polished and finished by hand; the colorful exterior is designed to resist chipping. It retains heat brilliantly. This 8-quart model can cook a mountain of food, and it’s on sale right now. It’s originally $440 but it’s now down to just $300 — a savings of $140.
Though Le Creuset is most famous for its enameled cast iron cookware, it also makes stoneware that’s ideal for baking and casseroles. These Le Creuset Square Bakers have a lovely finish that's resistant to chips and cracks; since the surface is nonporous, it won’t absorb odors or flavors. The handles make them easy to take out of the oven, and they’re so pretty, they can go straight to the table, filled with lasagna, roasted veggies or desserts. This set of two bakers is available in five colors: Artichoke, White, Oyster, Azure Blue and Sea Salt. Instead of $67 for a pair, you can get the set right now for just $50. Split them up for gifts, or give the set.
