If you're getting ready for a busy fall of back to school and the office, it's time to take stock (so to speak) of everything you need for easy weeknight dinners. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has plenty of home items on deep discount, and that includes everything kitchen and dining. Though the sale officially opens to the public next week, the deals happening now already include some of the best brands for anyone who loves to cook and host.
What to Know About the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Nordstrom's sale is a celebration of the company's birthday and is always marked with major discounts on brands like All-Clad, Zwilling, and Hydro Flask. The sale officially started on July 28 at 3 a.m. ET, and it ends on August 9 at 3 a.m. ET. Nordstrom cardholders (and those who apply for a Nordy Club membership) can get even more discounts right now, but there are still plenty of deals available to everyone.
What to Buy at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
We combed through the current markdowns and found nine deals that are worth shopping , including beautiful stainless steel cookware from All-Clad, the wide-mouth Hydro Flask, and of course, an ever-essential Dutch oven from Emile Henry. These deals are going fast (a few products we included in our earlier post have already sold out), so if you see something you love, be sure to grab it quickly and head to checkout.
10-Piece All-Clad Stainless Steel Cookware Set: 45% Off
A set like this one from All-Clad is the envy of any professional chef, and this set is deeply discounted at nearly half-off the full price. It includes an 8-inch and 10-inch skillet, 1 1/2-quart and 3-quart sauce pans, a 3-quart sauté pan, and an 8-quart stockpot. The stainless steel core prevents warping and hot spots, while the bonded aluminum makes them ultra-conductive and oven-safe up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. Equip an entire kitchen with this set and it'll last for years to come.

Emile Henry 4.2-Quart Round Ceramic Dutch Oven: 47% Off
Emile Henry's bakers and pie dishes are beloved for a reason: The ceramic has great heat retention and cooks evenly. The Dutch oven is a generous size perfect for baking bread and braising meat for slow-cooked stews. It doesn't require any seasoning, so it's ready to work right out of the box and into the oven.

We can never overlook a good knife deal, and this high-carbon forged blade from Zwilling is a chef's treat. The German knife is forged from a single piece of steel and ice-hardened for lasting durability, and the curved handle makes it easy to wield.

Hestan is a F&W Test Kitchen favorite and one of the most robust, beautiful cookware brands on the market.

40-ounce Hydro Flask Wide Mouth Water Bottle: 27% Off
Hydro Flask's insulated, lightweight, and nearly indestructible water bottles are wildly popular for a reason. Whether you're relaxing on the beach or heading out on a hike, this bottle will last you years (I can attest; mine is approaching a decade). Grab the 24-ounce standard mouth or 40-ounce wide mouth bottle while they're discounted—the 32-ounce already sold out, so don't delay.

Nordstrom at Home Marble Lazy Susan: 35% Off
Nothing makes a centerpiece like a charcuterie board, and nothing upgrades a good meat and cheese plate like adding in a swivel. This lazy Susan looks excellent front and center, for everything from small group gatherings to Thanksgiving feasts.

Stagg EKG Electric Kettle: 30% Off
