I interrupt your very important Thanksgiving planning and preparation to draw your attention to some pretty sweet deals happening right now on Amazon in anticipation of Black Friday. There's a slew of Lightning Deals and curated holiday shopping guides for you to look through (including one from Apartment Therapy!), but it can be a lot to sift through in a single sitting.
I've looked through all the early Black Friday deals and found the very best ones for cooking and entertaining. From a gorgeous braiser made for the cook in your life, to ice molds perfect for a hostess gift, there's a little something for everyone.
I received a Le Creuset braiser about four years ago thinking I'd have no need for it in my kitchen. I was so wrong; I use this almost as much as my Dutch oven during the winter months. Normally one of these will cost you $385, but it's currently 26 percent off.
Are you ready to take the plunge (wink, wink) and get a pretty new French press? This beautiful coffee maker doesn't take up a lot of space and looks super cute sitting on your counter. It normally costs $50, but it's 25 percent off right now.
3. Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds (2), $9
Can't figure out what to get for a hostess gift or something for your colleague? I'm in love with these sphere ice molds from Tovolo. They're cheap, take up minimal space, and make any homemade cocktail a little more special. They are normally $11, but are 20 percent off right now.
4. Produtrend Kitchen Scale, $15
I use my kitchen scale every single day to weigh out coffee in the morning. It's also an invaluable tool for all you bakers out there. This scale from Produtrend is 70 percent off right now, and usually retails for $50. If you've been thinking about getting a new scale for your kitchen, now is the time.
Have you or someone you love been eyeing a juicer for just about forever? Does green juice sound extra appealing between cookie baking sessions? Now is the time to get one from Breville. This juicer is 37 percent off right now!
Pair this gorgeous corkscrew with a bottle of nice wine as a great holiday gift. This thing normally costs $18, but it's currently 55 percent off. Get it while you can!
Making your own rice is supposed to be pretty easy, but you know what's even easier? A rice cooker. This would be a great gift for that person right out of college. Normally this thing costs $175, but it's currently 25 percent off.
This water filter is pretty enough to put on the dinner table. In fact, last year Maxwell reviewed six water filters and found this one particularly charming. It normally costs $50, but is 32 percent off right now.
