2 Cyber-Monday Deals for your Xmas list
Today’s a great day to save some dough on gifts for the cooks on your Christmas list. Amazon’s got some fantastic Cyber-Monday deals going right now on must-have items for every serious kitchen.
Although every cook has their own preferences, I’m pretty sure either of these items would be a big hit in that special cook’s stocking or under his or her tree. So, if you’ve got one on your list, take a moment to check out these deals and perhaps get a couple of names crossed off early:
I received an old KitchenAid as a gift several years ago and boy, am I glad I did! This workhorse is an absolute must in my kitchen – I use it for making cookies and cakes, kneading bread and more. It’s a champ that works overtime and just never quits. One of the cool things about a KitchenAid is that once you have the stand mixer, you can get a million and one attachments to extend its functionality. Want to make your own fresh pasta? Get these pasta attachment s. Like to make fresh, homemade ice cream? Take a look at the ice cream attachment. How about making your own sausage? They’ve got attachments for that, too. I can’t imagine any cook not being thrilled to receive a mixer like this. This deal is $259.99 (regularly $499.99) PLUS a $50 mail in rebate, which makes this almost 60% off. Great deal!
Shun 6″ Chef’s Knife – $89.95 (reg. $157).
I haven’t used a Shun knife myself, but it is a well-respected brand, and a really good chef’s knife is essential for anyone who is serious about cooking. Many of them are very expensive, so $89.95 for this name-brand knife is a pretty good deal. And it’s beautiful, too! A chef’s knife is used daily, and doing those chopping and slicing tasks with a high quality knife will completely change the experience for you (I *can* attest to that, from firsthand experience) and change prep from a chore to a joy. Contrary to what some celebrity chefs trying to hawk their wares will tell you, you don’t need a whole big set of knives. A good chef’s knife, a paring knife and a bread knife will get you through almost everything. If the cook on your shopping list is still struggling along with a cheapo knife, delight him or her with a sharp, beautiful knife like this one.
These are just a couple of items that jumped out to me as great deals on items I (or any cook) would love to have. You can see all of Amazon’s cyber-deals here – Cyber-Monday.
