The Sparkling Water I Like Way More than LaCroix
There’s no way to downplay this: I’m obsessed with carbonated water. There’s just something about the fizzy goodness that appeals to my tastebuds in a way normal H20 never could. If I’m being honest, I reach for seltzer way, way more than tap water. (Spoiler alert! That’s okay. Read: Is Seltzer an Okay Substitute for Water? Experts Weigh In.) I know I’m not alone. Recent numbers find that Americans are drinking close to 170 million gallons of seltzer per year.

Sur la Table Is Slashing the Prices of Its Cooking Classes
Whether you’re making basic pasta or mixing unconventional ingredients, learning how to cook is a process that requires lots of practice. Even if you know your way around the kitchen and have a solid repertoire of go-to recipes, there’s no harm in taking a cooking class. Not only does it open you up to new cuisines and recipes, but it also gives you the opportunity to pick up skills you wouldn’t learn otherwise. Which brings us to Sur la Table.

A Cheaper Version of the Instant Pot Is on Sale Right Now
It’s no secret how much we love a good multi-cooker around here. Short of ordering takeout, these machines are the best bets for having a warm, delicious meal ready when you get home from work. We’ve tested and written about plenty of multi-cookers, including options from Cuisinart, Crock-Pot, and, of course, the cult-favorite Instant Pot. Today, however, we found one on Amazon that we haven’t seen before.

This Vitamix Deal Matches the Black Friday Sale – for 24 Hours
If you don’t already have a Vitamix, chances are it’s been on your wish list for a long, long time. And what’s not to love (or lust) about ’em? As the gold standard of blenders, they’re perfect for whipping up nut butters, salsas, and frozen margaritas. But while Vitamix is arguably one of the best — if not, the best — blender brands on the market, it’s not the cheapest.

Williams Sonoma Just Announced a Sale on Two Major KitchenAid Appliances
ICYMI: We are big fans of the KitchenAid stand mixer. The cult-favorite appliance can do a lot more than just whip cream, mix batter, and knead dough. You can also buy several attachments to turn it into a spiralizer (zoodles!), pasta maker, an ice cream machine, and much more. It’s this versatility that makes the KitchenAid stand mixer one of the most prized gadgets in any home cook’s kitchen.

10 Cute Dinnerware Sets You Can Buy During Wayfair’s Massive Sale
Here at Kitchn, we like to think that your plate is just as important as the food you’re serving on it. You want the plate to look good so that your food looks good, right? (The people on Instagram tend to agree with us, too). While you can certainly spend a small fortune buying handmade pieces from potters in far-off remote workshops, you can also get some legit good deals on Wayfair — especially if you shop now during the site’s Home Essentials sale.

We’re Obsessed with These CB2 Glasses — And They’re on Sale Now
Kitchn editors have sipped from countless different glasses. (World’s weirdest humblebrag, right? Don’t feel bad, you probably have, too!) We’ve sipped from Mason jars, pint glasses, teeny tiny juice glasses, giant tumblers, the list goes on. It’s a boring list, we know.

7 Dorm Essentials You Can Use in Your Teeny Tiny Kitchen
In a perfect world, you’d have a massive kitchen, complete with multiple ovens, a spacious island, and enough cabinet space for every cooking gadget you can imagine. In reality? Your kitchen is the size of a coat closet. I should know: My kitchen is so small, I only have room for a mini-fridge. We’re not going to sugarcoat it for you: Cooking in a small kitchen is difficult.

It’s Finally Time to Buy This Cult Kitchen Tool
There’s a reason most of us don’t follow an all- or even mostly-fried-foods diet. Packed with saturated fats and oils, fried foods can raise your blood pressure, cause high cholesterol, and improve your likelihood of heart disease. (Plus, we know that salads and smoothies are good for us!) But companies know that most of us prefer a French fry or chicken wing over a plate of raw carrots. And so many small appliance brands have been bringing us countless models of air fryers.

At Kitchn, we’re committed to finding cool, useful, and wildly popular products we think you’ll like, which is why we have Amazon’s best-seller pages bookmarked on our computers.

6 Surprising Foods You Can Buy at Urban Outfitters
ICYMI: Urban Outfitters has a lot more to offer than graphic tees and cute jewelry. In addition to great clothes and accessories, the store sells trendy skincare products, gorgeous furniture, and fun office supplies. And if you look closely at Urban Outfitter’s “Wellness” section, you’ll find plenty of vitamins, healing crystals, and food. Yes, you read that correctly. Of course, we’re not talking bananas and gallons of milk.

5 Great Kitchen Deals You Can Score During West Elm’s Clearance Sale
If there’s one store we don’t talk about enough, it’s West Elm. Everyone knows — and loves — West Elm for its sleek, mid-century furniture and home accessories, but the store has its fair share of kitchen accessories. We’re talking cute kitchen towels, sleek stemware, and much, much more. Problem is, West Elm’s wares aren’t exactly cheap.

World Market’s Labor Day Sale Has Already Started!
Fall doesn’t start for another few weeks, but there’s something about Labor Day weekend that convinces us all that summer is officially over. No more weekend trips to the beach, backyard barbecues, or summer Fridays. Instead, you’re cooped up inside and forced to pull your chunky sweaters out of storage. Bummer, right? The silver lining of Labor Day, however, is its abundance of sales.

The 5 Best Things to Buy from Amazon’s Weirdly Cheap New Brand
Amazon has seriously upped its grocery game over the past few years. In addition to acquiring Whole Foods last year, the e-commerce giant has launched programs like Prime Pantry and Amazon Fresh, which deliver fresh fruits, vegetables, and toiletries straight to your doorstep. But why stop there? Amazon even cut out the middleman by launching their own private-label companies. We’ve already talked about how much we love Presto and Wickedly Prime.

The As-Seen-On-TV Stocking Stuffer I Actually Use All the Time
Let’s be honest: Infomercials are the best guilty pleasure cable television has to offer. Whether you love them or love to hate them, there’s no denying that their cinematic magic and touch of cheesiness makes for some wildly entertaining TV. With the binge-worthy spirit comes a healthy dose of skepticism. Is this really a miracle product and do I really need this in my life? The answer is sometimes (okay, most of the time) no.

These Amazon Home Buys Are Designer-Approved and Less than $50
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Amazon has a bunch of home decor pieces that look expensive, but are ridiculously affordable. It’s not that surprising, right? After all, you can buy just about everything (and we mean everything) at the mega-retailer — and usually for a low, fair price. Of course, we’re not the only ones who think Amazon is a decorating enthusiast’s paradise.

The $5 Target Find That Makes Hand-Washing Dishes a Million Times Better
There’s a reason I’ve been living in the same apartment for nearly five years. My studio apartment is in a great location, has plenty of storage for all my stuff (read: two closets!), and even boasts a cute outdoor space, which I admittedly don’t use as much as I should. I love my apartment, but of course, no home is perfect. My space has a bulky, built-in media center and a mini fridge instead of a full-sized one (really).

Urban Outfitters Has a Great Deal on Our Favorite French Glassware
If you ask us, the best water glass also doubles as a wine glass (and maybe even as a cup for espresso) which explains why we love these French Duralex glasses so darn much. Most people know them as the “original French tumbler,” but The Independent went so far as calling them “the ultimate drinking vessel created by man.” No matter how you put it, one thing’s for sure: People are obsessed with these things. And honestly, what’s not to love?
