Sur La Table is offering 25 percent off a single item through Monday, October 22, when you use code SAVE25 (some exclusions apply). This is a great deal, but a little tricky — you don't want to waste it on something so inexpensive that you don't really notice the discount. So the trick is finding something to buy that's pricey and even a bit indulgent, but still useful.
A few normally pricy specialty kitchen items caught our attention for their unique features, so we're sharing them here so you can take advantage of this sale before it ends!
As a bonus, shipping costs will be waived if you spend over $59 using code SHIPFREE.
An Easy-to-Fill Pepper Mill: Swissmar Smart Turn Multi Purpose Mill, $30 (was $40)
Raise your hand if you've ever spilled peppercorns on your countertop or floor when trying to fill your pepper mill. Enter: the Swissmar Smart Turn mill with its wide, easy-fill opening. You can check out the product video to see just how foolproof it is to spoon or pour in whole peppercorns. The adjustable dial has seven settings, allowing you to choose your grind size easily, from very fine (great for dressings or sauces) to coarsely ground (for adding a crust on meats before cooking). No need to sweep up (or step on) peppercorns ever again.
A Sturdy, Stainless Steel Salad Spinner: OXO Steel Salad Spinner, $28 (was $50)
Buying bagged lettuce is definitely a convenience, but for the freshest greens your best bet is to cut and wash it in your own kitchen. This salad spinner from OXO is a step up from their plastic models, making now a good time to grab it on sale. Why the pricier upgrade from more standard salad spinners? OXO's stainless steel bowl is extra durable, won't hold any odors, and, thanks to a rubber ring on the base, stays sturdily in place while you spin your freshly washed greens. After you drain out excess water, greens can be stored in the bowl in your refrigerator, ensuring they stay vibrant and crunchy until you're ready for your next salad.
A Smart Steeping & Straining Tea Kettle: Fellow Raven Tea Kettle, $60 (was $79)
A while back we featured this, the "Goldilocks" of all tea pots, so we were happy to see the Fellow Raven Tea Kettle and Steeper included in the sale. For tea-lovers, the built-in steeper basket doubles as a strainer, saving a step when you're ready to pour your tea. The thermometer at the top of the lid will let you know when water is at the perfect temperature for your specific type of tea. Not a tea drinker? Take out the basket and you've got a great all-purpose stovetop kettle. The modern, simple design is nice enough to leave out on your stove or bring to the table when serving company. As a bonus, this item's price qualifies it for free shipping using the code SHIPFREE.
