Most homes have an unspoken contract about dinner: One person cooks, and the other cleans. (Okay, sometimes that's the same person.) But while you may have jumped on a new set of pans during Black Friday and Cyber Monday's sales, the cleanup crew deserves something, too. That's why we looked through Amazon's Cyber Week discounts to find deals on a collection of clever cleaning tools that can help your cookware last for many holidays to come.

Cleaning cast iron cookware can feel daunting, but the right tools can take away some of your trepidation. Lodge's seasoned cast iron care kit, a five-piece collection (currently under $20) that includes a silicone handle, scraper and brush, helps you keep your pan seasoned for seamless steak searing. Meanwhile this marked down Lodge scrubbing pad removes the crispy bits from your griddle without stripping away the seasoning you're trying to protect.

It's not just cast iron pans that can present a challenge to the human dishwasher in your household. Have you ever tried to get dry cake out of the nooks and crannies of a bundt pan? Stop struggling and get the Nordic Ware Ultimate Bundt Cleaning Tool while it's just $9. The two-sided cleaning utensil comes with a brush, flat scraper, and pointed pick to tackle the crazy angles that easily trap chocolate and cake crumbs.

For cleaning a ceramic baking dish, the wiry bristles of the mDesign scrub brush will quickly break down the last of the lasagna you couldn't finish. Keep one next to the O-Cedar Scrunge sponge, which has a coarse side to clean up flour from your counter top and a soft side that's safe to use on stainless steel and nonstick cookware. Bonus: Both are less than $10 right now.

Before your next big holiday meal, give yourself the gift of a deep kitchen clean. Bar Keepers Friend easily removes grease, rust, buildup, and food stains from glass and ceramic cooktops, as well as stainless steel, porcelain, and more. Or grab a container of All-Clad Cookware Cleaner and Polish that's only $10 to scrub away the remains of the onions that went way past caramelized in your stainless steel pans.

Whether you splurged on new pans or want to bring new life back to your existing cookware, these tools can help remake your dishwashing routine. Treat yourself to a brush or cleaner before these Cyber week discounts end.
