It's official: Fall is almost here. And while temperatures might take a while to get crisp (and leaves a bit longer to turn), there's a reason to start prepping for all your cold-weather cooking now. Sur La Table is currently offering 20 percent off almost everything on their site with code APPLE18. Here are five of our favorite buys perfect for fall.
Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle, $119 (usually $149)
We love the long, narrow spout of this electric kettle, and the matte finish gives it a more traditional ceramic look. The precision temperature control and design will give you perfect pour-over results, but if coffee's not your thing, it's equally capable of steeping loose or bagged teas to the ideal level of flavor extraction.
Glazed Terra-Cotta Tagine, $40 (usually $50)
Moroccan tagine — stewed meat and vegetables — just might be the ultimate cozy comfort food. Traditionally served with couscous, you can take your tagine from oven-to table with this classic terra-cotta vessel. When it's time to serve your guests, simply remove the tapered lid and breathe in as your home is filled with the rich scent of spices.
Cuisinart 14-Cup Food Processor $159 (usually $199)
Have you been holding out on adding this kitchen superhero to your arsenal? We can't wait to make double batches of buttery pie crust to get ahead of holiday pie-baking season (don't forget — pie crust can be frozen!). Put down the mandoline and box grater and use the slicer and shredder discs to prepare pounds of potatoes for gratins or latkes. So versatile it chops, purées, and mixes — and the generous 14-cup capacity makes it easy to prepare food for a crowd.
Lodge Cast Iron Skillet, $22 (usually $27)
This 15-inch Lodge cast iron skillet is a must-have for any season, but is particularly great for fall. Try roasting some root vegetables and woody herbs (our favorites are parsnips, butternut squash, and thyme). And if you haven't made our skillet apple crisp, prepare to say goodbye to your pie plate and take advantage of the stovetop and the oven to create this rustic dessert.
J.K. Adams Reversible Carving Board, $100 (usually $125)
Roasts are wonderful on cold Sunday evenings. But if you've ever tried to carve a chicken or tenderloin on a flat cutting board, you know very well how messy it can be as flavorful juices run off onto your countertops. Upgrade your carving game with this gorgeous wooden board, and let the grooves collect any runaway liquid. Bonus: The other side of the board is flat for everyday chopping jobs.
