As they've done in the past, throughout the month of December Target is featuring weekend-only sales in a variety of departments. So of course we're especially excited that this weekend (that's right — today and tomorrow only) they're offering an additional 25 percent off kitchen appliances and cookware.
We sorted through hundreds of items to bring you our top four picks so you can take advantage of these generous savings. As a bonus, some are already on sale, making the prices that much more tempting.
1. AeroGarden Harvest Slim with Gourmet Herbs 6-Pod Seed Kit, $98, was $180
If you've ever purchased fresh herbs only to forget to use them before they spoiled, you're not alone. Enter: AeroGarden, a growing system that gives you everything you need to grow your own fresh herbs at home 12 months a year. No soil required, the kit comes with six seed packets: ready-to-grow Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, and Thai basil. The energy-efficient LED lights turn on and off automatically, and there are reminders to add water and plant food. Its streamlined footprint is perfect for small countertops, and the chrome finish helps it fit right in with your other cool kitchen gadgets. No more wilted, slimy herbs — just endless inspiration to cook!
2. SodaStream FIZZI Starter Kit, $60, was $80
SodaStream has long been our go-to for making sparkling water at home. and we love the slim, modern design of their Fizzi starter kit. Complete with a 60-liter CO2 cartridge, the updated model features snap-lock bottle technology, making it as easy as clipping the bottle in place for easy carbonation. The slim footprint means you can leave it out on the countertop to enjoy bubbly water whenever you like.
3. KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, $195, was $380
This is one of the lowest prices we're bound to see on a KitchenAid stand mixer this season. The additional 25 percent off even places this in gift-giving territory! Coming complete with everything you need to get started to make everything from buttercream to batter to heavy doughs, if you order this weekend you'll still have plenty of time to bake cookies for the holiday. Many colors are already running low or out of stock because of the deal, but there are still some eye-popping options as well as more mellow colors are still available.
4. Cuisinart Classic Stainless 12-Inch Everyday Pan with Cover, $26, was $35
This stainless steel Cuisinart everyday pan is an excellent alternative to cast iron brasiers, since it can do many of the same tasks at a much more affordable price. Use it to brown and braise meats, whip up stir-fries, or make sauces. The pan is big enough to handle as much as a pound of drained pasta to make skillet pasta dishes or casseroles, should you decide to pop it in the oven. The domed glass lid allows you to view food as it cooks and transforms the pan it into a steamer for big batches of vegetables. Since recipes in a 12-inch pan can get heavy, the stay-cool helper handles make it easy to go from stovetop to oven, and even to your table.
