Nordstrom is one of our favorite places for “little luxuries.” The retailer carries some of the best wow-factor cooking and dining brands, including the ever-stylish SMEG and editor-favorite Le Creuset. You can be sure that these are always quality pieces, made to last for years (or generations!). But through October 4, these mini indulgences are even more enticing, since Nordstrom is offering a 30 percent discount on countless items. While you really can’t go wrong with any Nordstrom purchase, these below items are at the top of our personal wish lists and early holiday shopping lists.

This set of two pans is so much more than your average nonstick skillet. They’re compatible with virtually all types of cooktops and made with a sturdy stainless steel core, which prevents warping over time. The triple-layered PFOA-free nonstick coating is virtually scratch-free. Order a set, and you’ll no doubt agree with this 5-star reviewer: “Obsessed with these pans. Got them on sale but would spend regular price for them.”

Le Creuset for this price?! Impossible! And yet, Nordstrom has done it. This very adorable enameled cast iron Dutch oven is eight ounces, making it perfect for individual baked desserts, omelets, or even for use as an ice cream bowl. The deep green Artichaut color gives off “pine forests and Christmas wreaths” vibes. We’re not saying you should buy a set and use them for your holiday desserts, but we’re not NOT saying it, either...

was $315.00

SMEG is so cool. The retro-chic brand is known best for its refrigerators, but we’re loving this drip coffee maker, which looks like a tiny spaceship and performs like a champ. One customer noted that it’s “as good as coffee shops,” and stays warm for over an hour. Other brilliant features include the option to brew a stronger cup, an eco-friendly reusable filter, and an easy-to-set timer. Vintage style, modern efficiency. Like we said: SMEG is cool.

This is one good-looking kettle. It positively gleams, thanks to a polished stainless steel exterior with an ergonomic handle. All-Clad is known for its superior heat distribution and retention, and this piece is no exception. One customer, who gleefully noted that it “was a delight” throwing their old tea kettle in the trash, gave the 2-quart kettle high marks for the leak-proof top and easy-pour spout. Plus, it’s gorgeous.

was $190.00

A quality ceramic Dutch oven is never a poor investment. This one, by Emile Henry, is crafted in France and coated in a goes-with-everything charcoal enamel. (No need to season the pan.) It’s right-sized for big soups and slow braises, making it a workhorse for fall and winter cooking. It’s also undeniably pretty — bring it right to the table, and make it part of the centerpiece.

6 / 10
was $84.00

Quality wine glasses can cost in the ballpark of $50 per glass. With Nordstrom’s 30% sale, you can get a set of six sommelier-approved Zwiesel glasses for $63. We like that kind of math! These glasses are specifically designed to aerate the wine — aka making the aromas more prominent — and they’re elegant, with a thin lip and narrow stem, to boot.

was $100.00

As we enter red wine season (that is a real season, right?) now is the time to buy a decanter. They do more than look elegant — well-designed decanters are meant to help a wine “breathe” and develop more complex flavors. This one, which comes with a wood stopper, is dishwasher safe, making it so much easier to clean than other, fussier designs. It would also look pretty with iced tea or lemon water; perfect for any type of dinner party. Reviewers note that any Nambe purchase is #worthit.

was $49.99

Raise your hand if your kitchen scale isn't reliable. Whether yours has left you wondering 'is that a 8 or a 0?' or moving the bowl to the left one millimeter has enticed your scale to addd 12 grams suddenly, it is time for an upgrade. This Zwilling scale has got your back for long-lasting precision so you'll never have to upgrade again.

9 / 10
was $39.99

Watch out bowl collection, you're about to be replaced. Cuisinart is truly one of the most reliable and well-made brands on the market and these bowls are no exception. They are stable, with tight fitting lids and dishwasher-safe? One reviewer promises "you won't be disappointed,' we couldn't have said it better ourselves.

was $43.49

Feeling guilty about all those plastic bags you throw away? Top shelf of your fridge is cluttered with untidy sandwich bags you say? Stasher is your solution! These reusable bags erase all the qualms you have with saving lemon halves and trail mix. These colorful storage solutions come with a generous price slash (lucky you!) but are well worth their full price.
