5 Surprising Kitchen Brands You Can Find at Walmart — and What You Should Buy
At Kitchn, we love Walmart for their frequent massive sales on top cooking and cleaning brands like Instant Pot, NutriBullet, and Shark. In addition to these household favorites, Walmart also offers some unique brands that you might not expect from the superstore (did someone say tableware from the Gap?). From reusable dishes to Dutch ovens to unique storage solutions, the retailer has you covered with handy and affordable items. Below, we’ve rounded up five surprising brands that you can find at Walmart.
Martha Stewart Everyday
No one does effortless home decor quite like Martha. Her Everyday line features classic, simple pieces that will go with any kitchen, no matter your preferred style of decor. The line includes stainless steel kitchen tools, beaded melamine dinnerware sets, cookbooks, and more. Walmart also carries the Martha Stewart 7-Quart Enamel on Cast Iron Dutch Oven, which you can use to make everything from a slow-cooked stew to casseroles to bread. The cast iron allows for even heating, the heavy lids seal in moisture and flavor, the wide handles facilitate easy transport, and the enamel fights stains and provides a natural nonstick quality (score!). Plus, this cute light blue dutch oven retails at just $58.98, making it a super-affordable option.
As many of us start to head back into the office, we’re faced with a not-so-fun task: prepping and packing weekday lunches. Thankfully, the Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Food Storage container from popular reusable brand S’Well makes toting lunch to work and storing leftovers easy. The 21.5-ounce container is leak-free and BPA-free, and you can safely pop it into the microwave to heat up your food and then toss it into the dishwasher when you get home. As a college student, I can personally vouch for S’Well’s vacuum insulated stainless steel water bottles, which are super easy to tote around campus. Walmart also sells the brand’s travel mugs and tumblers for bringing beverages on-the-go.
Yamazaki’s Japanese-inspired products bring simplicity and style to your kitchen. The affordable brand offers all kinds of products to help you organize your home, including a magnetic kitchen storage rack, a cutting board stand, and an over-the sink drying rack. We love the Yamazaki Home Plate Simple Magnet Kitchen Storage Rack, which attaches to your refrigerator or another metal surface, freeing up precious cabinet and counter space. The sleek, steel storage rack features a shelf, paper towel holder, and handy hooks for hanging up tools and utensils. The shelf can house your cutting boards, spices, or cookbooks, and you have the option of using the provided screws to attach the rack to the wall if you don’t have a magnetic surface.
When most millennials think of the Gap, soft logo hoodies and comfortable denim come to mind. However, the popular brand has recently branched out into home decor, bringing their signature casual, cozy vibe to your kitchen. The Gap Home line, available exclusively at Walmart, features adorable ceramic dishes, water bottles emblazoned with the Gap logo, and colorful stackable mugs. The 16-Piece Round Stoneware Dinnerware Set is the perfect addition to your dinner table, whether you’re serving up a casual weeknight meal or entertaining guests. The set — which includes four 10.5-inch dinner plates, four 8.25-inch dessert plates, four bowls, and four 16-ounce mugs — comes in black, blue, dark gray, white, and yellow, so it’s sure to match your decor. As an added bonus, these durable stoneware dishes are both microwave and dishwasher safe.
The sustainable brand Ello is known for its handy reusable products, including water bottles for kids and adults, silicone-protected wine glasses, and reusable straws. We’re fans of their food storage solutions like the Ello Duraglass 6 Piece Food Storage set. Made from thick odor-free and stain-free glass, the set is a great option for storing leftovers and keeping your fridge organized. The silicone sleeves protect the containers from chipping and breaking, while the air-tight, leak-proof lids prevent spills and keep your food fresh and tasty. The BPA-free containers are also super easy to use — you can safely pop them in the freezer, microwave, top rack of the dishwasher, and oven; plus, you can stack the 3.4-cup containers on top of each other to save fridge shelf space.
