Independence Day is this weekend, which means you probably have your holiday cookout or beach day plans down. While you might be out and about, don’t sleep on the many sales happening this week. Dozens of sites and stores are offering July 4th or summer-adjacent markdowns this week, so we went through and found the best deals. Not only are these items useful in your home or kitchen, we tried to find the ones that’ll save you a significant amount of money. Whether you’re just looking to buy a few glasses for summer entertaining or pull the trigger on a bigger purchase for an appliance, check out our curated list.
We’ll be updating as more sales are announced, so check back to find deals on everything from iconic S’Well bottles to all the meat you need for an epic night of at-home Korean barbecue.
We’re recommending these products because we actually use, and like, them. Things you buy through our links may earn us a commission.
Sur La Table
The kitchen and home retailer has several promotions running this weekend. From now until July 5th, shoppers can get 20 percent off their entire purchase with promo code STAR5. If you’re looking to stock your home for al fresco dining, they’re also offering 50 percent off their outdoor entertaining dinnerware. For ultimate sale hunters, you can also take an additional 20 percent off clearance items until the 5th.
Staub Tall Cocotte
Staub’s Cocotte is one of our favorite cast iron dutch ovens, because it’s versatile enough for stews, roasting chickens, and more. Staub Cocottes actually go on sale pretty regularly, so it’s definitely worth snagging them when they’re at a discount, and this is an item we’d almost never pay full price for.
20-piece Glass Storage Container Set With Pen
Food containers should be on any kitchen’s essentials list for storing leftovers or prepped ingredients. We like Sur La Table’s 20-piece set because of the integrated measurements on the sides of the glass. It also comes with a dry erase pen so you can note what’s inside.

This teeny dutchie is surprisingly versatile in the kitchen. You can use it for single-serve cakes, a perfect broiled french onion soup, or miniature pot pies.
Misen’s entire collection of kitchen essentials like knives, cookware, and prep accessories is on sale this weekend. Everything on their site is 20 percent off for a limited time, so it’s a great opportunity to get yourselves a solid frying pan or a set of knives.
Misen 10-inch Stainless Steel Skillet
This workhorse skillet is one of our favorite DTC options when it comes to frying pans you’ll reach for again and again. The pan is compatible with all cooktops, and you can pop it in the oven for a reverse seared steak or to keep veggies warm before serving.
Misen Universal Lid
We’ve all been there: you’re cooking something that needs a lid to retain its moisture so it doesn’t become a dry, crumbly mess but you can’t find one that fits your pan anywhere. Misen’s universal silicone lid offers an easy solution that fits pretty much every pot and pan you already have.
We anticipate seeing many more markdowns from the retail giant after Independence Day weekend, since Nordstrom will release it’s Anniversary Sale preview on the 6th. However, there are still a few good home and kitchen deals you can snag before the Anniversary Sale madness begins in earnest.

Ohom Ui Monogram Golden Mug & Warmer Set
We cannot overstate how life changing this mug is if you tend to forget your coffee or work from home. This mug and warmer keeps coffee piping hot when you’re distracted by my work, and on weekends, the charger can a godsend when friends come over with 2 percent battery on their phones.
LÉKUÉ Vegetable Ricer
This ricer’s intended purpose is to finely mince veggies like cauliflower or broccoli into a rice-like consistency, but a reviewer said it also works for grinding up a different kind of herb as well, if you catch our drift.
Independence Day is a big holiday for this retail giant, so it’s no surprise that they have some killer home and kitchen deals. Hundreds of items are at least 20 percent off, and you can get an additional discount for up to 20 percent off sale and clearance items with promo code FOURTH.

J.A. Henckels Zwilling Twin Signature 5" Serrated Utility Knife
Do you need a $216 serrated utility knife? Probably not but thankfully this 5-inch knife is significantly marked down from that price tag at $40. The shape is perfect for slicing late season heirloom tomatoes, grilled steaks, and more.
T-Fal Culinaire 16-piece. Nonstick Aluminum Cookware Set
This cookware and utensils set would be a perfect gift for someone moving into their first kitchen, or if your nonstick cookware is in desperate need for an upgrade. Until July 5th, you can get pots, pans, a sheet tray, and utensils for less than what you’d normally shell out for a single pot.

As KBBQ veterans know, Kalbi is one of the founding blocks of a great Korean barbecue meal. Umami Cart’s beef short ribs are frozen and pre-marinated to make your prep even easier.

Pork spare ribs are also a KBBQ delight. The flatter profile of these St. Louis style spare ribs are ideal for even cooking on the grill, and you can add your own marinade to precisely balance umami flavors and spice.

HydroFlask 16 oz Coffee Mug

Classic glass growlers are usually what you’d see in breweries or taprooms, but S’Well’s Roamer can fit up to 64 ounces of your favorite beer (or other beverage) and keep it cool all day, which is much more than we can say for the glass version. Plus, the matte exterior and triple layer insulation will mean that this bottle won’t have condensation to leak onto your bag or on a table.
