A ritzy wine and dine experience is such a luxury. But as much as we love an occasional splurge on a tasting menu with courses the size of a postage stamp, we do have to sometimes stay home and cook. We’re not salty, though, because, with the right cookware, we can replicate that fine dining experience at home (well, except the people-watching). We’re big fans of Great Jones’ cast iron cookware, and it’s our lucky day, because the almighty ones have dropped a flash sale on two of its best kitchen workhorses through September 19.
Great Jones’ Dutch Baby, the mini version of The Dutchess, the handsome, versatile piece that started it all for the brand, is $35 off. Besides being an absolute tank and an aesthetic objet for your stovetop, it’s ready to handle any Michelin-starred restaurant’s braised chicken recipe, with its 3.5-quart capacity and enameled cast iron surface for even cooking and easy cleaning. In addition to sittin’ pretty on your stovetop, it’s oven-safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and is dishwasher-safe, too. And because we don’t have the storage space of an industrial kitchen, rest assured that if you pick up its big sister, The Dutchess, you can even nest them to save valuable cupboard space. With a 4.6 star-rating and over 200 reviews on its website, the Dutchess also has a loyal fan base. (One happy customer even said they’d die for it.)
Always trying to perfect the crispy skin on your salmon filet? Scoop up the King Sear, which is currently $30 off. This big daddy skillet is packin’ it with 12 inches of cast iron. It’s a durable, oven-safe unit that can withstand up to 500 degrees. Although it’s not dishwasher-friendly, its pre-seasoned coating is easy to care for—it just needs a quick wipe-down in the sink. To maintain its non-stick surface, occasionally season it by thoroughly rubbing it with vegetable oil or another form of fat in the interior surface, then throw it in the oven at low heat for it to settle in.
Don’t be shy: Caramelize onions, sear a fat piece of filet mignon, or master your shakshuka—all get the royal treatment in the King Sear. It also has a 4.6-star rating and over 200 reviews on Great Jones’ website. One buyer enthusiastically writes, “He’s huge! I seared a whole bag of Brussels sprouts in this pan, and then roasted them in the oven. Just beautiful! I got the blue and my friend got the green.” The holiday season is just around the corner, and friendship skillets are the new friendship bracelets.
Alright—you heard us. Toss out those scratched-up pans from the discount store, and deck out your kitchen in Great Jones gear while you can still save a few bucks.
Head over to Great Jones to check out the flash sale through September 19.
