German superstore Aldi has made waves in the United States in recent years with ultra-discounted groceries and home decor steals, like the coveted grill gazebo on super-sale ($30!) and this chic marble candle pedestal. It’s no surprise it’s been called “America’s fastest-growing grocery store,” thanks to its low prices and offerings of everything under the sun — including plenty of dual-purpose items that act as decor and storage. And just in this month is one such item that shoppers are clearing off the shelves.

The newest addition to Aldi’s collection of stunning kitchen gems, the Crofton glass fruit bowls, have hit shelves at an unbeatable price of just $12.99. Available in two styles — a clear, round glass bowl with a dark wooden base (super similar to West Elm’s Lotta pedestal bowl, but at a fraction of the price!), and an all-gray, glossy glass ribbed option — the dishes are equally refined and beautiful. There’s something about a glass pedestal bowl that just (literally) elevates the entire aesthetic. If you choose to grab the pair of them, they can be displayed in different spots around the kitchen or swapped out by the season. 

With spring fruits ripe for the picking and dinner parties on the horizon, the bowls are picture-perfect vessels for table centerpieces and kitchen counter accessories that make food organization feel luxurious. Of course, they can also serve as stylish pantry organizers or fridge organizers for coffee pods, candy, sauce packets, lunch fixings, snacks, or whatever else needs storing. Organizing has never looked so chic! If you’ve got your heart set on these bowls, act fast — because they won’t last long.
