Black Friday kitchen deals are coming in fast. Let's call it what it is: Black Friday month and it includes major bargains and discounts on cookware and small kitchen appliances, many of which make perfect gifts for foodies and budding home chefs. There are kitchen deals a-plenty on Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy and we're keeping track of the best live Black Friday kitchen deals each day right here. Then there are all those sitewide kitchen brand-wide Black Friday sales to consider this year, many of which have already gone live. In truth, those sitewide brand sales are often where you'll find the best Black Friday deals on things like blenders, Dutch ovens, cookware sets, SodaStream and other kitchen must-haves.
The Always Pan, for instance, is already $50 off in a rare limited-run sale on the uber-popular frying pan that's almost always sold out (but not now). Other wish-list kitchen brands like Vitamix blenders are live with sitewide sales, including up to $100 off any new blender. Then there's my personal obsession, the direct-to-consumer kitchen brand Made In which has gone live with discounts on blue carbon cookware, glassware and more. It's not just gear either: There are also big deals on popular meal kit services like HelloFresh Home Chef and healthy prepared meal services like Freshly and Daily Harvest

Black Friday 2020 sales and deals
This pan has earned a bit of a cult following, having made the rounds on morning talk shows and often selling out or going on backorder. The claim is that it takes the place of eight other kitchen tools. When we heard that we knew we'd have to put it to the test and while eight might be a stretch, I will say it's a very impressive and well-designed piece of cookware.
The Always Pan is not only in stock right now but you can snag one for $50 off with special code SUPERSALE in a very rare sale on the cult-favorite skillet.
Right now, NutriBullet's entire line of blenders and juicers is 25% off for Black Friday when you drop promo code GETGIFTING at checkout. That means you can score one of the brand's signature push-top NutriBullet personal blender for $45 (down from $60) or the amped-up NutriBullet for $68 (normally $90). While the NutriBullet personal blenders may be the brand's calling card — they're the ones you can blend in, pop a drinking top on and head out the door — there are also a few powerful full-size blenders to consider.
Riedel makes some seriously fine glassware, which is why you'll find it on tables of some of the world's best restaurants. Starting on Thanksgiving day and running through Cyber Monday (Nov. 30), the legacy Austrian wine glass producer is offering 20% off anything (yes, anything) on its website. That includes wine glasses, decanters and cocktail-specific glassware and barware. Just use promo code RIEDELFRIDAY20US at checkout.
The best of the best in blenders is rolling out a few promotions over the few weeks. From Nov. 20 – Dec. 31 you can take $50 off all new blenders, $60 off the Vitamix E310 and $75 off the amped-up Vitamix A3500. The best deal so far, however, may be this certified reconditioned Vitamix S50 with five-year warranty, down to $225. It normally retails for upward of $400).
For Cyber Monday week, Vitamix will have a brand new Ascent series blender down to $350 (normally $550) and a certified reconditioned Next Generation blender for $250 (normally $440).
If you like nonstick cookware but are worried about the potential chemicals used in Teflon and other nonstick surfaces, ceramic is the way to go. Greenpan makes some of the best ceramic cookware and it's all on discount for Black Friday. Starting today and through Dec 1. take 40% off the entire site and up to 60% of select items with special code CYBER40.
This might be the best kitchen deal we've spotted so far this cycle and it's just days away. From Nov. 21 – Dec 31, a Staub 4-quart cocotte (think Dutch oven) will be down $200 to just $100. Staub is up at the top of the heap with crafters like Le Creuset and Mauviel when speaking of fine French cookware and this is a versatile piece you (or the lucky person you snag it for) will be using for decades, if not longer. It's perfect for braising, stewing, sauces and oven roasts. Enameled cast iron couldn't be easier to clean and it looks so darn good on your range. The rustic pot is available in eight dashing colors at the sale price.
The Germans know how to do sharp steel, and Zwilling blades are the kind you'll find in pro kitchens the world over. There are some solid deals on Zwilling knives sitewide for Black Friday: From Nov 21 – Nov. 30 take as much as 50% off select knife sets like this 8-piece stainless steel steak knife set or snag a 7-inch chef's knife down to just $60 (originally $134). (If you're going to treat someone to a quality chef's knife, make sure it's forged from a single piece of quality steel like this one is).
We love Home Chef for its highly customizable meal kits and comfort food recipes with a healthy that are easy to prepare when short on time. It's also one of the more affordable meal kit companies too, and even more so if you sign up this week. Starting Nov. 21 through Dec. 4, Home Chef is offering $90 off when you sign up for four weeks of meals. That's $30 off the first and second box (!) and $15 off your third and fourth.

Abbio Kitchen makes sturdy cookware — both stainless steel and nonstick. I've tested them myself, and Abbio pans are built well with some of the most comfortable handles I've yet to grip. The brand's Black Friday sale goes live from Monday, Nov. 23 – Monday, Nov. 30, when you can take 25% off sitewide with special code AbbioBF25.
Daily Harvest is quite possibly the easiest way to eat healthy without ever having to learn to cook. Instead you'll get steady (or one-time) shipments of vegan soups, smoothies, bowls, flatbreads and more, all of which are chock-full of superfoods. All you have to do is blend or heat it and eat.
From Nov. 25 to Dec. 1, when you buy one Daily Harvest box and use the promo code CYBERWEEK2020 you'll get a box of equal value for free on your second delivery. That's a pretty darn good deal, I must say.
Wondering how to get NYC bagels or hot pastrami when you don't live anywhere near the Big Apple? One word: Goldbelly. The online marketplace serves as a middleman between you and some of the country's absolute best eats. That includes pecan pie from New Orleans, deep-dish from Chicago and plenty of iconic New York delis like Katz and Russ & Daughters. From Friday, Nov. 27 through Monday, Nov. 30, the entire site will be 20% off. There are lots of great gift ideas on Goldbelly too, so have a look and be ready to pounce when the savings hit.
The Tovala Smart oven system is not just a very cool, high-tech steam and convection oven (although it is that). It's also engineered to expertly cook custom meals that you order through the website and have delivered to your door weekly. From there you just scan the meals through a bar code reader on the side of the oven and stick them in. The oven does the rest using multiple cooking methods and times to nail the dish.
I tried it and the meals come out pretty great with absolutely no clock watching or worrying over cook times. The Tovala oven normally retails for $299 but will be down to $99 on both Black Friday (Nov. 27) and Cyber Monday (Nov. 30) when you purchase six Tovala meals.
