If you've been working with the same tired pans, knives, and wine glasses for the duration of the pandemic, it might be time to invest in a fresh set. Verishop is one of our favorite retailers for quality kitchen and homeware, and their deals this weekend are worth a look for home cooks. Most notably, the best universal wine glasses from Glasvin are discounted. If you've been dancing around the idea of a single set of glasses meant for every pour, now is the time.
Our executive wine editor Ray Isle sang his praises for Glasvin as one of his favorite products of 2020. Though there are a few brands offering universal glasses (meaning they'll work well for both red and white wine styles), they often go for quadruple the price of a standard wine glass. "The hitch is that some of the best of them—the Jancis Robinson+Richard Brendon glass, for instance, which I love—are not inexpensive ($60 a stem). Enter NY-based Glasvin, which makes a lovely, all-purpose, hand-blown universal glass at about half that."
To buy: Glasvin Universal Glass 4-Pack, $140 (was $150) at verishop.com
The set is ultra-light and elegant while being sturdy enough for regular use. Go for the traditional stemmed glasses, or get a set of both stemmed and stemless Glasvin glasses for a discounted price as well.
Beyond the glasses, there are deeper discounts on both cookware and tabletop items. Greenpan's nonstick fry pan set is $120 (originally $150). The Zwilling Pro 4.5" Steak Knife Set is just $230 (originally $400), a worthy set that will last years in your home. Grab a Demeyere stainless steel stock pot for $330 (originally $415) for all the soups and stews you'll be making during the winter months.
Staub's 3.75-qt Essential French Oven is hugely discounted at $200 (was $457) and the steam grill cast iron is just $130 (was $250).
