For the uninitiated, Nordstrom’s annual Anniversary Sale is an event for the history books. While most folks may immediately think of the countless designer clothing and accessory items that are offered at a steep discount, you can also score home decor and kitchen accessories from brands like Staub, Smeg, and Fellow during the nearly month-long sales event.
It can be overwhelming to sift through the endless sale items once they’re online, but we’re here to find you great deals on stuff you’ll actually use in your home and kitchen. Here’s everything you need to know, and all of the best deals we’re most excited to shop for. Deals are likely to sell out, so it’s a good idea to strike as soon as you see something you love.
I’m In! When Can I Start Shopping?
It depends! The official sale dates are July 28th through August 8th, but Nordstrom credit card holders are able to shop the sale as early as July 12th. If you’re ready to start shopping (or add items to your wish list for a later access date), these are our top home and kitchen picks for Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale.
We’re recommending these products because we actually use, and like, them. Things you buy through our links may earn us a commission.

Stagg EKG Electric Kettle
Fellow’s Stagg EKG Kettle is one of our favorite go-to kettles for making a great cup of pourover coffee (and looks great while doing so). The 900 ml capacity is plenty for keeping you caffeinated all day, and the gooseneck spout and variable temperature control ensures your brew comes out perfectly brewed, every time.
Five Two Oven Mitts
These oven mitts from Food 52’s Five Two line are one of our favorites for protecting our hands in the kitchen. The silicone exterior is heat safe up to 650 degrees fahrenheit, while the cotton lining feels soft against skin. While these are normally priced at $40, you can snag your own pair for just $32.
Viking Carbon Steel Pans (2-pack)
These carbon steel pans are naturally non-stick, and are also great at evenly distributing and retaining heat. They’re a smart purchase if you love the benefits of cooking with cast iron, but not necessarily the bulk or the weight.

This elegant flute is made for discerning bubbly drinkers, as the silhouette of the glass is ideal for encouraging a soft fizzy mouthfeel with sparkling wines and champagne.
GIR Ultimate Perforated Spoon
A slotted spoon like this silicone spoon from GIR is one of my favorite tools to use in the kitchen. I use it to gently submerge eggs into a boiling pot, scoop out a bouquet of herbs in a sauce, and use it to fish out short pasta when I’m too lazy to break out a colander.
ZWILLING Fresh & Save 3-Piece Glass Vacuum Container Set
These glass food containers can be vacuum sealed to keep food fresher for longer. They also look very sleek for storing leftovers or weekday work lunches.
