Attention, bargain hunters: now through July 8, Sur la Table is giving shoppers 25 percent off of ANY ITEM on its sprawling website with code SUMMER25 at checkout. Yes…any item, including clearance. If you’ve spent any time perusing Sur la Table, you know they boast one of the largest collections of luxury kitchen and cookware lines in the world, including Demeyere, Le Creuset, Mauviel, Staub, De’Longhi, and many more so the options are seemingly endless, but for this sale, we say go big or go home!
Any chef or experienced home cook will tell you there are certain kitchen tools and cookware you really just should spend a little more money on (if you can). Perhaps you can get away with a flimsy ladle as long as you’re working with a quality chef’s knife, and maybe that inexpensive pasta pot won’t throw off your entire game, but a cheap sauté pan—that doesn’t properly conduct and distribute heat—absolutely will.
With Amazon Prime and Target Deal Days still both a few weeks away (July 15 and July 16), you might be looking for a major 4th of July sale on a splurge-worthy kitchen appliance, piece of cookware, tool, or gadget to hold you over. Well if there is one big-ish ticket item you’ve been eyeing, like a badass Vitamix blender, high-tech espresso machine, or stunning piece of French-made cookware, this may be the time to buy.
The Sur la Table 4th of July kitchen and cookware sale—which has kicked off one day early—even includes already discounted items like this stunning olivewood cutting and serving board or this Cuisinart cordless handheld blender. What’s more, you can snag free shipping on anything over $59 with code SHIPFREE and orders over $75 will come with a free reusable tote.
Here are some of our favorite Sur la Table kitchen tools and cookware items that are totally worth splurging on!
This Vitamix you’ve been dreaming about
If you’ve considered splurging on a Vitamix—and who hasn’t?—now might be the time. These machines blend smoothies, juice, soups, sauces, and even make flour better than that clunker collecting dust above the fridge. You’ll likely end up keeping this on the counter full time; a pleasure to use, easy to clean and perfect for healthy eating or Whole30.

One seriously gorgeous Miyabi chef’s knife
A high-end chef’s knife like this Miyabi steel blade can change the way you cook. From the handle design, which cuts down on cramping, to a precision blade that makes chopping and slicing a dream, it’s fantastic. Plus, it’s simply lovely to look at.

This beloved smoker
My dad bought himself a smoker a few years ago and I don’t think a week passes by that he doesn’t use it (and call or text to let us know what’s going in this week). In fact, the grill has started to post selfies on Instagram just to get some attention. This Weber number features a porcelain-enameled bowl, lid, and water pan, huge cooking area (which is key), and is super easy to move about the yard.

This major coffee system upgrade
I’ll be honest with you. I love espresso some days and others I prefer drip, and I just can’t choose between the two. Well, nobody has to decide with this chic De’Longhi combination pump espresso and 10-cup drip coffee machine with cappuccino system. Made for the modern coffee snob with convenient front-access reservoirs and digital timer.

An uber-accurate meat thermometer
We’ve been reading about a little spike in foodborne illnesses and one of the best ways to protect your crew against salmonella and the like is by testing meat temps regularly, especially chicken and pork. But your safety is only as good as the quality of the temperature read so we recommend this high-emd Thermapen Mk4, especially while it’s on sale.
