Ever wonder what cookware or tools professionals use? As you can imagine, restaurant kitchens go through dozens of pots and pans throughout the day, so outfitting chefs with name-brand equipment can be costly. That's where the direct-to-consumer brand Made In comes into play. Backed by industry veterans such as Tom Colicchio, the brand makes professional-quality tools geared for home chefs. And now is the perfect time to upgrade some of your kitchen essentials because Made In is having a sitewide Black Friday sale and you can save up to 25%.

Don't just take it from us, though: chef Michael Symon has also praised the brand. In response to a fan's question on Twitter about affordable knives, he said that Made In "does a really nice job." He's also recommended that cooks have the three most essential knives in their kitchens: a chef's knife, a serrated knife, and a paring knife. Symon often uses Made In's version on his cooking show Symon's Dinners to mince herbs, dice vegetables, and cut pieces of meat. The 8-inch chef's knife is made in France from a fully-forged piece of metal, resulting in a long-lasting, durable blade that slices easily. Or you can get The Knife Set, which comes with the chef's knife, a Nakiri knife, and a paring knife—two of Symon's must-haves—and save $60 during the once-a-year sale.
