If you're getting ready for a busy fall of back to school and the office, it's time to take stock (so to speak) of everything you need for easy weeknight dinners. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has plenty of home items on deep discount, and that includes everything kitchen and dining. Though the sale officially opens to the public next week, the deals happening now already include some of the best brands for anyone who loves to cook and host.

What to Know About the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom's sale is a celebration of the company's birthday and is always marked with major discounts on brands like All-Clad, Le Creuset, and Greenpan. The official start date for the 2021 sale is July 28 at 3 a.m. ET, and the end date is August 9 at 3 a.m. ET. Nordstrom Cardmembers (and those who apply for a card) can get even more preview discounts right now through the early access sale, but there are plenty of other deals available to everyone right now as well.

What to Buy at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

We've combed through the current deals and found the top five things we'd buy right now, including helpful storage bowls from Rosti Mepal, beautiful stainless steel cookware from All-Clad, and of course an ever-essential Dutch oven from Emile Henry.
