All-Clad's durable stainless steel and aluminum core allow for even heating, and all of their bonded metal products are made right here in the United States. This reliable frying pan features a flat base and slanted sides for easy tossing and flipping. It's a great go-to for pretty much any dish, whether you're flipping a fluffy omelet or a yummy stir fry. Bonus: It's oven and broiler safe up to 600 degrees.

Our tools editor, Riddley, swears by this bread knife. Its ergonomic handle allows for easy gripping, and its textured finger points provide slip resistance and safety. According to Riddley, "It slices like a dream and is so reasonably priced," and at an extra 63 percent (!!) off right now, it's even more of a bargain.

We love a good Dutch oven at The Kitchn, and this one is a great pick — and it's 41 percent off right now. Its heavy, tight-fitting lid and self-basting spikes keep moisture inside, while the matte texture provides even browning. Black enamel interior shows less wear and tear than the lighter colors of other brands, and it's oven safe up to a whopping 900 degrees without the lid.

This incredibly affordable peeler is the go-to for chefs and home cooks alike. Its carbon steel blade peels through even the toughest vegetable skin and stays sharp. The ergonomic design works in your right or left hand, plus it features a handy potato eye remover. Our studio food editor, Jesse, reports that "After using this peeler, I regret spending so much money on more expensive peelers that simply don't work as well."

This high-grade stainless steel can opener features a locking mechanism to ensure that you get a consistent cut, and the soft-touch handle reduces strain on your hands. Plus, the built-in magnet allows you to dispose of the lid safely and cleanly when you're done.

Our food editor, Kelli, used this spider strainer in culinary school, and says "It’s a must for pasta so you can transfer it directly from the water to the skillet with sauce." Made from food-grade stainless steel, this 15.5-inch spider is heat resistant and durable, with a long ergonomic handle that protects you from splashing hot oil or water. Plus, its double coil design works faster than a fine mesh strainer and can be used for all kinds of dishes — Kelli also recommends it for blanching vegetables, boiling eggs, and even rinsing berries.

Our editors like this stainless steel multi-cooker because it does it all (it even browns meat!). It comes with three preset functions — Brown/Sauté, Steam, and Slow Cook — and an auto keep-warm setting that lasts up to 24 hours. All of its removable parts (including a steaming rack) are dishwasher safe for easy cleaning, plus its glass lid lets you monitor your food's progress. Oh, and did we mention it's almost half off right now?

This pan is the key to achieving the perfectly flat cake of your dreams. It's made from commercial-grade, heavy-gauge aluminized steel (with a lifetime warranty) and features nonstick Americoat coating, which allows for easy release of baked goods and quick cleanup. Plus, the silicone coating is BPA, PFOA, and PTFE free, so you can be sure your food is safe to eat.

If you haven't been using a silicone ladle, this is your sign to buy this one from GIR. It's flexible, safe for nonstick cookware, and heat resistant up to 550 degrees, and it even has helpful measurements embossed into the bowl. It's also totally hygienic — it's covered in one single piece of silicone, meaning there are no nooks or crannies for gunk to get into.

This boxed grater features four unique sides designed to slice, grate, and shred foods. Made from durable stainless steel, this grater can tackle everything from cheese to zucchini to butter. And with its grippy plastic handle, you can get good leverage on whatever you're grating and avoid injuring yourself.
