The Best Things On Sale This Week, From Our Place To Instant Pot
Deals on flatware, wine accessories, chopsticks, and more.
Written by

The unofficial theme of this week’s sales roundup is Small Objects That Will Make Your Home Feel Curated. We found a discounted set of matte black flatware, for example, as well as a colorful electric kettle that not only looks exceptional, but will also presumably boil water. If you need a gift for someone who’s really into wine, this list also has a few great options for that (the Coravin will get you extra credit), and there’s an Instant Pot on here as well. Because everyone needs an Instant Pot. Scroll on for all the current home and kitchen deals we think you should know about.



These Are The Best, Most Exciting Cookbooks Coming Out This Fall


We’re recommending these products because we actually use, and like, them. Things you buy through our links may earn us a commission.

Coravin Pivot Wine Preservation System

If you’ve been trying to figure out how to become a wine nerd, it’s actually pretty simple. First, learn everything you can about wine. Next, express some contrarian opinions that are refreshingly unpretentious (canned wine is good, .e.g.). Finally, grab a Coravin. This device will help you pour from a bottle of wine without removing the cork (ensuring that your un-poured wine stays fresh), and it’s one of the few wine gadgets that are actually worth it.

Mepra Linea Ice 5-Piece Place Setting

Mepra makes some of our favorite flatware, but we hardly ever see their stuff on sale. Right now, however, this set is selling at a significant discount. Yes, it only includes five pieces, and, yes, it’s still $140. But that’s better than $186.

20-Piece Olympia Brushed Black Flatware Set

This flatware set reminds us of a similar matte black one we’ve been eying from Fable. It’s also a lot less expensive than the one from Fable. Do what you will with this information.

Laguiole Jean Dubost 2-Piece Wine Set

Using a waiter-style corkscrew is the best and easiest (once you get used to it) way to open a bottle of wine. Most of these corkscrews are fairly plain and inexpensive, but here’s a gift-worthy option. It’s from Laguiole Jean Dubost, and it comes with a little pocket knife on the side.

Our Place Always Pan

Our Place claims that their Always Pan can do just about anything (boil, fry, braise, etc.), and we’ve found that this is mostly true. Think of this pan as a jumbo non-stick skillet, and consider picking one up if you want to streamline your cookware situation.

Get Our Place Always Pan ($115, was $145) →

Instant Pot 8 qt. Pro Multi-Use Pressure Cooker

Speaking of all-purpose kitchen tools, you should also get an Instant Pot. This one’s the Pro model (with an appealing black finish), and it can bake, slow cook, steam, sauté, and more.

Get Instant Pot 8 qt. Pro Multi-Use Pressure Cooker ($120, was $150) →

Hay Colour Sticks

Design Within Reach is having their Dining Sale right now, so if you need a fancy new dining table, it’s where you should be looking. Or, for something more affordable, you can (and should) pick up these chopsticks from Hay.

Get Hay Colour Sticks ($34, was $40) →

Hay Sowden Kettle

Electric kettles rarely look this good. So do the right thing, and take advantage of this discount. (There are a few different colors available.)

Get Hay Sowden Kettle ($106, was $125) →

Hay Tavern Glass

Big wine glasses are great, especially if you enjoy sniffing and swirling. But lately we’ve been gravitating toward stubby wine glasses. They feel more fun and casual, and they tell the world that you don’t take yourself too seriously. Plus, these look pretty cool.

Get Hay Tavern Glass, Set of 6 ($30, was $35) →

Fishs Eddy Gilded Side Plate

These side plates may not look like the rest of your dishes, but matching dishware is overrated — and, also, the discount here is close to 70%. A collaboration between West Elm and NYC-based Fishs Eddy, these shiny saucers are ideal for snacks, dessert, or elegant meals for your cat.

Get Fishs Eddy Gilded Side Plate ($5, was $15) →

West Elm Rectangular Wood Cutting Board

It’s surprisingly hard to find a big, attractive, solid-wood cutting board that’s also reasonably priced. (Trust us, we’ve spent a lot of time looking.) This one from West Elm is 21" across — so it has plenty of room for anything you might feel like chopping — and it’s made from ash wood harvested from responsibly managed forests.

Get Rectangular Wood Cutting Board ($35-$40, was $50-$70) →

Staub Cast Iron Crêpe Set

You can act like you don’t want a crêpe pan in your home, or you can drop the facade and order this one from Staub already. The choice is yours, but — considering this pan is over half off — the choice appears to be an easy one. (The enameled cast-iron pan also comes with a spreader and a turning paddle.)

Get Staub Cast Iron Crêpe Set ($100, was $229) →

Plating Tongs

Plating tongs — also known as comically large tweezers — will come in handy the next time you’re making dinner and want to pretend you work at Alinea. Just pick these up, then snag some microgreens or an edible flower and garnish away.

Get Sur La Table Plating Tongs ($11, was $15) →

Aarke Sparkling Water Maker

This Aarke machine is officially the single most aesthetically pleasing sparkling water maker we’ve come across. It’s compact and cordless, so you can place it on any countertop and start enjoying unlimited fizzy water (which is similar to flat water, but better).

Get Aarke Sparkling Water Maker ($175, was $219) →

New York City Soy Wax Candle

Do you know someone who recently left New York City? (Moved to LA, for example, or maybe Hoboken or Jersey City.) If so, get them this candle to remind them home. It smells like spring in Central Park and also concrete, which honestly makes sense.
