Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is an annual event that distinctly stands out from other major sales. That’s because it includes discounts on newly released products and not just older merchandise, making it the perfect opportunity to score the latest clothes, beauty products, and home essentials for a steal. We’re obviously eyeing the kitchen and tabletop section, which is filled with really stylish items you’ll want to show off, like Smeg’s pure eye-candy appliances, kitchen and storage essentials that pack in form and function, and even sublime designer candles that are a great way to shut down your kitchen every night or turn everyday dinners into special events.

Now for the important stuff: Starting Aug. 13, Nordstrom cardmembers get exclusive early access to the sale before it goes live to the general public on Aug. 19. And if you’ve ever shopped this event in the past, you know that items sell out ridiculously fast. In other words, the earlier you get in on these deals, the better. If you’re not a card member, you can still browse the deals and create a Wish List, making shopping easier (and less stressful) for when the sale is open to all. Below are some of the top kitchen deals to grab ASAP!

The last time this set of 5 mini candles was included in the sale, it sold out within hours, and chances are good it'll happen again. The collection includes a range of floral, fruity, and woodsy scents that are ideal for adding ambience to a weeknight dinner or keeping the kitchen smelling fresh after a day of intense cooking.

There are cutting boards and then there's this delightful one that could seriously double up as art for your countertop. Made from birchwood, it's suited for food prep but we highly recommend repurposing it as a cheese board or even a platter to serve appetizers.

Yes, it's just a water bottle, but it's the most gorgeous one we've seen in a while. The shiny, gunmetal exterior covers a triple-insulated, vacuum-sealed interior that keeps your drinks cold for up to 25 hours and hot for almost 12 hours! It also has a slip-proof design, which means you won't have to deal with that annoying condensation that makes most stainless steel bottles as slippery as eels.

It's hard to resist the lure of a gorgeous Smeg appliance. Especially, when it's 25 percent off and comes in a beautiful rose gold finish. Form aside, the two-slice toaster features extra-wide, extra-long slots to accommodate bread of all shapes and sizes, while a removable stainless-steel crumb tray keeps everything clean. There's also a bagel, reheat, and defrost function to ensure your toasted meals are perfectly browned every time.

Calling all tea lovers: Elevate your sacred ritual with this sweet stoneware set. You get a bowl to stash used tea bags, a lid to keep your drink warm, and even a teaspoon for stirring — basically everything you need to enjoy your tea break. The only thing not included? A slice of cake!

Whether you're rinsing berries, washing spinach, or straining cooked pasta, keep it stylish with this chic colander that's made using traditional 18th-century techniques and hand-dipped in enamel to get that gorgeous cracked effect. It's dishwasher friendly, so you can toss it in with the rest of your load to get it ready for its next job.
