Now that we’re in the thick of holiday cooking and baking, we’re starting to think about those tools that would really take our kitchens to the next level. We asked 3 Kitchn editors what item from Williams Sonoma they’re hoping to receive this year. (And they asked us to let you know that no one has fulfilled these items yet. They’re a subtle bunch.)

As you might imagine, our editors know how to make a kitchen wish list fit for a Nancy Meyers movie. And if you need a little payment flexibility, you’re in luck: Williams Sonoma is an Affirm partner, so purchases over $100 are eligible for Affirm’s easy payment options — with simple monthly payments, zero late fees or surprises, and APR as low as 0%. With that in mind, here’s what our editors are wishing for — and how Affirm can help you pay for them if you’d like to make their holiday dreams come true. 

Amelia’s Coffee Break Upgrade

“I’m ready to take my at-home espresso game to the next level with the Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine,” Amelia told us. “It had a built-in burr grinder and every bell and whistle you’ll need to never go to the coffee shop again.” The Barista Express also features a 360-degree swivel steam wand and a water filtration system. It’s currently on sale for $699.95, but with Affirm you can break that down into smaller monthly payments: You can choose $234/monthly for three months; $122/monthly for six months; or $64/monthly for 12 months!*

Jesse’s New Home Cookware

“I’m about to move into a new apartment, and it’s about time I invest in some quality pots and pans,” Jesse told us. “This All-Clad d5 Stainless Steel 10-Piece Set has all of the basics, so I’ll be ready to start cooking as soon as I move in! I’m eyeing the eight-quart stockpot the most, especially as we head into the colder months (aka braising and soup months)!” With five alternating layers of responsive aluminum and durable heat-diffusing stainless steel, d5 stainless-steel cookware heats slowly and evenly every time. This set is currently on sale for $799.95, but with Affirm you can pay in three monthly installments of $267; in six installments of $140; or in 12 installments of $73*.

Lisa’s At-Home Pizzeria

And finally, Lisa has big backyard cooking plans: “I want every night to be pizza night, and this Ooni Koda 16 Pizza Oven will help me get one step closer to my dreams. Because pizza in the regular oven is FINE, but pizza in an outdoor oven with real flames? Well, that’s bound to get lots of requests.” This super-easy oven cooks authentic wood-fired-tasting pizza in just 60 seconds. It’s currently priced at $499, but with Affirm you can make three monthly payments of just $167; six of $87; or 12 of $46*.
