There are a few things a home chef can’t have too many of…spices, sharp knives, infused olive oils, and kitchen towels. That’s right — towels! The unassuming piece of cloth hanging on our oven-door handle is the true unsung kitchen hero. Perfect for grabbing a hot pot handle, drying hands and dishes, sopping up a quick spill, wiping down surfaces….well, you get the idea. And right now, you can score one of our favorite kitchen towels from Zeppoli for just $15.99 (normally $19.99; be sure to check off the $4 coupon on the product page). Additionally, Prime members get an extra $10 credit to use toward Prime Day purchases on Oct. 13 and 14 as part of Amazon’s early Prime Day deals on products from Small Businesses.

These aren’t just any old kitchen towels: They’re a favorite with pro chefs, Amazon reviewers (who’ve given them a solid 4.6-star rating and more than 5,500 glowing reviews!), as well as Kitchn editors and writers. In fact, they’re so good they even made our Kitchn Essentials list, because “these are the ones that you’re gonna put to WORK.”

You’re probably wondering why all that fuss over a kitchen towel? For starters, they’re 100 percent cotton and boast a light herringbone weave that’s super-absorbent but also dries quickly. So they won’t stay soaking wet after you dry your hands on them — but they’re also great for mopping up spilled sauces in a pinch. The cotton weave also minimizes lint, so you’re not transferring little cotton fluffballs onto your broccoli after drying your hands. And when you’re done with them, just throw them in the wash.

They’re so handy that Kitchn writer Rebecca Firkser keeps three of these towels nearby every time she cooks. There’s a towel for mopping up spills, and two more for drying hands, taking pans out of the oven, or for spreading out on the countertop as a clean place to rest freshly rinsed produce or herbs. You get 15 towels with this set, so you’ll always have one on hand. And sure, paper towels might be easier to use in a pinch, but switching to cotton towels is “ultimately cheaper for you and less costly to the environment.” (Let’s face it, who wants to go around wasting precious paper towels these days anyway?)

While they’re total workhorses, the towels are hardly eyesores, sporting the classic single-striped design seen in professional kitchens. Plus, the towels are a sizable 14 by 25 inches, so just fold them up and you’ve got a great potholder or makeshift trivet. Add a little water, and they’re an instant nonslip surface. As Rebecca writes: “Most home cutting boards I’ve used have a tendency to slide about as I chop. The easiest way to avoid that? Dampen a side towel, wring out the excess water, and lay it out under the board. Presto — a non-slip grip.”

So if you’re looking to make your kitchen routine a bit more environmentally friendly — and cost-effective — you can’t go wrong with this bulk pack of 15 kitchen towels. And when you add in the $10 Prime Day credit, you’re basically getting them for a total steal!
