Check out the best kitchen and cookware sales for Memorial Day weekend 2021. And check back often since we’ll be adding to and updating this story as we roll into the weekend and the unofficial start to summer.

AeroGarden

If you’ve been eyeing an indoor garden — perfect for city dwellers or chefs who want fresh herbs year-round — one of the most popular smart garden brands is giving 20% off the entire site through the weekend with special code SUMMER20. Snag the smaller AeroGarden Sprout for $70, the midsized AeroGarden Harvest for $120 or go big with the 24-plant AeroGarden Farm down to $520 for MDW.

ButcherBox

ButcherBox is one of our favorite online butchers to have premium cuts sent to your door. For MDW, new members score a free barbecue bundle in their first order including two New York strip steaks, six burgers and 5 pounds of chicken drumsticks. That’s 7 pounds of high-quality meat for free, people. 

And yes, this is a subscription service, but you can pause or cancel anytime.

ATTENTION BEACH BUMS AND CAMPERS: Hydro Flask is best known for its water thermoses (also known as Hydro Flasks) but the brand also has some excellent and durable food storage cooler totes that are all very camping-friendly along with cutlery, tableware, serving utensils and more but not all of it is on sale. Hydro Flask is offering 25% off most items for MDW, plus free shipping when you use the special code WELOVESUMMER.

Health-Ade

It’s no secret Health-Ade makes great probiotic kombucha but what you might not know about is the brand’s incredible new line of cocktail mixers. Just a splash of the whiskey sour mix in with a highball of bourbon and soda water is a real game-changer — trust me. Save 25% off the mixers or anything else sitewide with code GUT25, through Memorial Day.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Those oversized coupons that never expire may be a thing of the past, but you can still save a ton during Bed Bath & Beyond’s Memorial Day weekend sale. Take 50% off a Cuisinart Cordless Handmixer, for instance, or 40% off bedding and 25% off pool floats, outdoor entertaining gear, accent tables and more.

NutriBullet

We love these powerful little personal blenders and the Pro is one of the best models NutriBullet has to offer. Use special code USAPRO from May 28 through June 1 and save 15% off the NutriBullet Pro — normally priced at $100.

Great Jones

Great Jones makes some fun retro-looking kitchen gear including cookware sets, bakeware and a big honkin’ oval Dutch oven — the Dutchess. Save 20% on any $100 purchase now through the weekend.

GlobeIn

This subscription service sends a little package of artisan craft goods every month. Things like like throw blankets, coffee mugs and coffee herbal teas and it’s a ton of fun and very giftable. For MDW, you can save 70% on your first box when you subscribe using code MEMORIAL70 (get on the waitlist here). Or get 30% off anything from the shop collection (starting this Friday).

Misen

Misen is a sleek and sturdy direct-to-consumer cookware brand with quality pots and pans, chef’s knives and other handy kitchen tools. Right now, you can 20% off site-wide through Memorial Day.

First Leaf

This wine deal from popular wine subscription service Firstleaf is technically for Memorial Day, but it’s live right now. You can bag six bottles of wine — all red, all white or a mix — for just $30. I’ve personally tested this wine delivery service and can attest you’ll get some pretty solid deals on award-winning bottles even without a promotional deal. 

Winc is one of the most user-friendly wine clubs and a really great service to help novice wine drinkers find their stride. But it has a healthy selection of wine overall so more experienced oenophiles can find new and interesting bottles as well. For Memorial Day, Winc is offering four bottles for $25, plus free shipping. Six bucks for a bottle of wine is cheap no matter how you uncork it, but this offer ends on May 31 and is for new customers only.

LARQ

These self-cleaning water bottles make great gifts. Save 15% when you spend $150 or more.
