Between all the discounts on top-notch mattresses, savings on some unbeatable travel gear, and all the killer tech deals that keep popping up on Amazon, there’s no doubt about it — it’s sale season, baby! Aside from the food, we’d argue that the best part about the start of the holiday season is the bounty of sales. And, one of the first sites we scour when looking for stellar deals is Williams Sonoma. The retailer carries loads of our team’s must-have pieces, and when they run a sale, they don’t mess around — they frequently offer top-notch goods at some of the lowest prices on the web.

So, we took the liberty of combing our way through Williams Sonoma’s Early Black Friday Sale in order to find all the not-to-be-missed pieces for any and every home cook out there (if we’re honest, we’re also hoping our family members will see this, since some of these essentials are on our wishlists). From Le Cresuet and Breville to Staub, Lodge, and beyond, there are so many must-have products available, and there’s no better time to outfit your kitchen with some serious upgrades. After all, those holiday meals are coming up fast!

Check out what we’re eyeing on the site right now:

It’s no secret that having Le Creuset’s iconic Dutch oven in your kitchen is a total game changer. Whether you’re making a stew, braising meat, or even baking bread, this 5.25-quart workhorse does it all. The extra-deep Dutch oven is made from the French brand’s signature cast iron for even heating and features an enamel coating for a stain-free experience. The ergonomic (and oven-safe!) knobs and handles allow for easy maneuvering, while the tight lid helps keep your food moist. Bonus: This sale applies to several of its iconic colorways!

This All-Clad roasting pan is a true star of the show. Thanks to its intentional design, you can expect its tall sides to keep liquids in and prevent splattering that would otherwise dirty your oven. The handles are large and designed in an upright way to stabilize the pan as you carry it in and out of the oven and onto your tablescape. We especially love this iteration of the pan because it has the bonus of a nonstick interior and rack. Since residue won’t get stuck, you’ll be able to easily scrub it clean after roasting a 20-pound bird — and anyone who’s hosted a holiday dinner knows how important easy cleanup is!

This cast-iron skillet is made with a special triple-seasoning process, which means the pan will arrive perfectly seasoned out of the box, ready to take on anything. This feature eliminates the learning curve many beginners have when first starting to cook with cast iron. However, like any good cast-iron skillet, this lightweight do-it-all piece of cookware can tackle just about any task you throw at it. Plus, we think it'd make for a stellar gift!

Air fryers became so ubiquitous so quickly that a lot of brands seemingly started releasing ones whose design clearly hadn't been carefully considered. That's definitely not the case with Breville's smart oven air fryer (in fact, we're huge fans of pretty much anything the all-star brand puts out), which looks like it belongs in a professional chef's kitchen. In addition to air frying, this product has 10 other cooking settings, as well as a dual-speed mode for quick results. There's no better time to snag it than right now while it's on major sale!

This amazing deal means that you can get your hands on two All-Clad pieces for just $55! These nonstick skillets feature a hard-anodized aluminum exterior for superior heat conduction and retention that's likely better than you've experienced with other nonstick cookware. These pans are capable of searing and browning in addition to frying and sautéing, and they can also go in ovens up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Choose between the 8-inch and 10-inch set or the 10-inch and 12-inch set, both of which are on sale.

Thanks to a gently sloping nose and straight back, this knife is the perfect mix of Japanese-style and Western knife designs. It’s equally efficient at chopping and rock-motion slicing, and at 7 inches, it’s a comfy fit in just about all hand sizes. The blade is constructed from high-carbon stainless steel that promises to stay sharp and find perfect balance with the handle. Sounds like the perfect addition to your Zwilling collection, right? And, while we’d buy it for the top-notch blade alone, that creamy, matte-white handle is truly the icing on the cake.

For a pie plate that's a showstopper on its own, treat yourself to this ruffled Emile Henry pie dish. The tried-and-true AT favorite has a timeless design that's made of Burgundian clay which absorbs and evenly distributes heat. Translation: It not only looks gorgeous, but you'll have better-baked pies as a result! It's even oven-, freezer-, and dishwasher-safe and will retain heat even after taking it out of the oven to keep your food warm. We can't think of a more essential piece of bakeware to snag ahead of the holiday season.

A Vitamix is a big investment, whether you’re purchasing one for yourself or for someone else. For around what you’d pay for a refurbished model, you can pick up Vitamix’s most user-friendly model, which is on sale and has the same power and performance as their legacy models, just housed within a retro-inspired silhouette. The 32-ounce Tritan blending container is shatter-resistant and comes with a tamper to help you blend heavy and thick recipes. With a variable speed dial rather than programs, the One Blender puts the control in your hand, whether you want to gently mix batter or puree soup.

As the name implies, this beauty is basically the Goldilocks of cookware, all backed by Staub’s legendary craftsmanship and quality design. Featuring high, sloped sides that are ideal for sautéing or frying, this 3-quart pan boasts plenty of room for cooking up one-pan dinners and easy recipes. The entire interior is coated in enameled cast iron that conducts (and retains) heat beautifully while remaining resistant to chips and cracking (and needs no additional seasoning!). Translation: Your meats and veggies will brown, but delicate grains or greens won’t stick or burn. The piece comes complete with a glass lid that’ll help you trap heat and moisture and allow you to easily check in on how your meal is coming.

Le Creuset will never disappoint when it comes to gorgeous cast-iron cookware. In particular, we love this Le Creuset Skinny Grill for an indoor grilling option year-round. It's 15 inches wide and 8.5 inches long — aka the ideal size for grilling burgers, steaks, and even veggie kebabs. And, unlike some other grill pans, the iconic Le Creuset enameled exterior means that it’s stylish enough to take from stove to table. It's the perfect tool to buy as fall rolls around so you can continue grilling to your heart's content!
