It's still a little early to predict exactly what the rest of spring and summer is going to look like with all that's going on, and we're still heeding the advice of medical professionals and staying put. One way to prepare for the possibility that we won't be moving around as much this summer is to set ourselves up for a tasty season at home. The timing for grabbing a few cool new kitchen companions is spot-on, with Wayfair's Memorial Day sale hitting early. It includes some major cooking and entertaining deals. The online retailer has high-powered blenders, air fryers, grills, cookware and more down as much as 60% in anticipation of the holiday and unofficial early start to summer. Oh, and did we mention Father's Day is just around the corner?
We pulled out a few of the best kitchen and entertaining deals from Wayfair's sitewide Memorial Day Weekend sale below. Note that some items are low inventory and once they've run out of stock, Wayfair is not likely to restock until after the sale. Wayfair will deliver any of these sale items below for free. Shipping times vary by item but most will arrive before the weekend if ordered today.
