In recent years, multiple excellent cookware brands have popped up with a direct-to-consumer model— no outside retailers, no fuss, just great tools that home cooks and chefs can order directly from them. Though we always appreciate our usual suspects from big box stores, these tools offer something a little special, especially when it comes to gifts for the holiday season.
For Cyber Monday 2020, several of our favorite brands are offering great deals on quality tools we’d buy for our chef friends, our loved ones, and ourselves. We’ve rounded up some of the best cookware deals across these DTC sites. Read on for all of the details on your future favorite cooking tools.
