Thanks to Kitchen reader Oliver for sending in this tip. Oliver told me that when he couldn't get what he was looking for at Amazon.com's recent Staub Sale, he found what he needed at Home Depot. The selection of colors and sizes is limited, but if you're collecting the Chestnut color, you'll love this sale. After reading about the best ways to broil in The Times this week, my pick is this Le Creuset Square Skillet in black for $54.
Also, in today's Friday Sale at Amazon.com, a KitchenAid immersion blender is $29.99 marked down from $69.99. Save an additional $5 by sending in an (annoying) mail-in rebate. KitchenAid merits a mention becasue Cook's Illustrated calls it their favorite immersion blender.
