Black Friday is still a couple of weeks away, right? Wrong! A handful of DTC retailers are kicking off their sales early — including one of our absolute favorite places for fantastic kitchen essentials. That’s right, as of today, Material’s Black Friday sale is underway, which means that everything (yup, everything) on the site is 20 percent off. We’re talking must-haves such as the multi-use spatula that our editors can’t get enough of, the slim knife stand that looks super-stylish on the counter, the nonstick coated skillet that you’ll use every single day, and more awesome finds. Just fill your cart to your heart’s content, and the discount will automatically be applied at checkout, no promo code required. Even better, you can choose to donate a portion (or all) of your discount to the Lower Eastside Girls Club, an organization that provides programming to help young women and gender-expansive youth of color in New York City learn new skills and connect with mentors.

If you’re ready to upgrade your kitchen setup — or do some early holiday shopping — this is the sale for you. Below, we rounded up some of our favorite finds, and you can head to Material’s site to check out loads more products you won’t want to miss.

It’s rare that we find a spatula that's great at multiple jobs, but this lovely number is special. It’s made from soft-edged silicone with just the right amount of flexibility. In other words? It can scrape, mix, and flip. (It also happens to be the most attractive spatula we’ve ever seen.) Snap up a few of these for the design nerds in your life — and grab an extra for yourself, too. It’s only a matter of time before they sell out again!

Plastic tends to get a bad rap in the kitchen, but it’s ideal for certain tasks, such as chopping veggies or meat. Material’s incredibly popular reBoard is a plastic cutting board you won’t feel icky about. It’s BPA-free, made with zero virgin plastic, and a portion of the profits from one of its most popular colors is donated to charity.

You know what can be even better than a cutting board? A little cutting board! Seriously, these things are great. We love the mini-me version of the reBoard because it’s the perfect size for chopping alliums (you won’t have to wash a big board for one small onion) or slicing lemons, limes, and oranges on your bar cart. These baby boards also make perfect snack trays and cheese platters!

A truly well-made sauté pan is hard to find. This one is thoughtfully designed with tall sides — meaning you can braise, simmer, and sear, all without stovetop splatter. It has a copper core for boosted heat retention and comes with a tight-fitting lid. It’s the sort of pan you didn’t know how much you needed until you own it.

A good chef’s knife is key in the kitchen, but there are some jobs that a giant blade just can’t do. Material's knife trio includes a 4-inch knife to tackle intricate tasks, a 6-inch serrated knife (so helpful for cutting bread and tomatoes!), and a classic 8-inch chef’s knife. The handles come in a few different colors, which means that — unlike clunky 12-piece knife blocks — this set wins when it comes to function and form.

This 3-quart wonder is a must-have item for anyone who cooks rice or grains, boils pasta, steams veggies, or makes soup (so … everyone who cooks, basically). It has the same copper core as the sauté pan, and is lined with five layers of stainless steel for even cooking. You'll appreciate the markers on the inside of the pot, which tell you how full it is without having to measure. Buy it just in time for soup season!

Crafted from German stainless steel, these elegant kitchen shears are just as durable as they are great-looking. The silicone handle makes them ultra-comfortable to hold in your hand whether you're cutting up chicken for dinner or snipping herbs from the garden for a flavor-packed salad.

The 10.5-inch coated pan is a must for anyone who ever cooks with nonstick. Material’s version is BPA-free and lasts 37 times longer than trendy ceramic pans (just be sure not to use metal utensils on its surface). It comes in two pretty colors, making it a much nicer addition to your pots and pans collection than that old black Teflon-coated thing lurking in the back of your cabinets.

Although many knife blocks are the culprits behind dull blades, a magnetic knife block lets you keep your knives in an easy-to-reach location without affecting their sharpness. Since this stand makes it easy to see all of your knives, you’ll know exactly what knife you’re reaching for — no more fishing around to find the right blade hidden underneath! Plus, each block is made from sustainably grown and harvested wood, so you know that you’re getting something special and unique.

This exquisite triple-layered piece of cutlery measures (you guessed it) just under four inches, so it's the one you'll reach for when you want to execute delicate cuts, chop garnishes, dice small veggies, and more. Like Materials' larger chef's knife, it's crafted from high-carbon, corrosion-resistant Japanese stainless steel.

was $20.00

Made from repurposed kitchenware scraps, this 10-inch bowl is the ideal size for mixing up a batch of brownies, serving a salad, or eating a very large amount of cereal (kidding ... not kidding).

These dinner knives are designed to be useful for way more than digging into a delicious steak. Each features a straight blade instead of a serrated one, so you can use them for a casual weeknight meal that requires cutting into veggies or chicken, too. And check out those chic, colorful handles!

Kitchn contributor Stella is obsessed with these drinking glasses that launched just this month, calling them the "most versatile (and prettiest) piece of glassware I’ve ever owned." One look at these beauties, and it's easy to see why. Two elegant half-domes form the base and stem of the glass, and you can choose between three chic colors: Malachite, Haze, and Clear.

Finally — a peeler that really is so strong it'll last, well, forever! The U-shaped design fits easily into the palm of your hand, and the razor-sharp blade makes peeling nearly effortless. It even comes with a replacement blade if you use this baby so much that it starts to dull.

This essential set of tools comes with all the accessories you’ll need to cook dinner, including a beautiful wooden spoon, a highly functional spatula, and one of the most awesome straining spoons we’ve ever used. The 10-piece set makes a great gift for newlyweds, first-time homeowners, college students, and yourself (of course!).
