Black Friday Instant Pot Deals
There's no reason to pay $149.95 for this WiFi-enabled Instant Pot.
You already know that this Instant Pot replaces eight kitchen appliances. It’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice/porridge cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, steamer, and warmer. This model also lets you control what you’re making via the Instant Pot app, or by using Alexa. It also monitors pressure, temperature, keeps time, and adjusts heating intensity.
Black Friday Knife Deals
You know a company that’s been manufacturing top-notch blades since 1731 has to know a thing or seven about kitchen knives. And that’s one of the many reasons we’re into the Zwilling J. A. Henckels series of chef’s knives.
This gorgeous utility knife, forged from a single piece of solid steel, is normally $90.
So a little background on the brand’s Four Star collection. It launched in 1976, is Zwilling’s best-selling range, and has changed a bit in 40 years. That, friends, is quality and craftsmanship. It’s made from a single piece of steel and its ice-hardened FRIODUR blade is just about the sharpest and most resilient one you can buy.
The three knives every home cook needs, for way less than $92.69.
This specific line from Zwilling has been around since 1895, because you shouldn’t have to lay down a car payment for a set of knives. This set includes a four inch paring knife, 5.5 inch serrated utility knife, and a 7 inch cook’s knife. These are the key knives you need in your arsenal for chopping, dicing, and slicing.
This 15-piece knife set is normally $345.
If you want to go big, this is the set for you. It has every knife you could ever imagine using (except a cleaver). The insane thing here is, these knives are full-tang, which is what you want. And at this price, they’re practically giving them away. These knives are absolute standouts because they’re made from durable stainless steel, and they’re stamped instead of forged. Which means they’re lighter and easier to use.
We also dig this $160 knife set, because of the ultra-sharp steel full-tang blades.
Not only do these knives look like something out of a winter wonderland, but they’re well-crafted. You get every single damn knife you need for anything you might cook, including a Santoku knife, a paring knife, and a bird’s beak paring knife (really).
This knife set, normally $259.99, has handles specifically designed to give you optimal control when you slice and chop.
You look like you stepped out of Top Chef with this set. The knives are made from high carbon stainless steel blades and the handles give you ultimate flexibility and stability.
