Right now Sur la table -- which stocks all our favorite kitchen and cookware brands -- is hitting us with an almost end of summer sitewide sale. SLT is offering 20% off its entire enormous inventory (save for a very select few items with prices ending in a 6). That means tons of hot-ticket items at every price -- and since the sale includes clearance items, some things have dipped into we-can't-say-no territory.

For instance, we're awfully charmed by this colorful Dash mini retro toaster oven on sale for just $20. The perfect magic little toaster for a or small apartment at a toasty hot price. Other great deals abound, including a hard-anodized nonstick oval skillet (we love hard-anodized so... hard) that you'll use pretty much every day, and a high-end Italian espresso machine marked down nearly $60 during the sale, to which we say, "Saluti!"

If you're going nonstick you should try for hard-anodized, which makes it far less susceptible to wear and tear. This sturdy nonstick skillet is the size you can use for almost anything with sides high enough for braises, sauces and even stews in a pinch. The oval shape means it doubles as a roaster for big birds and beef loins, and the price is extremely low when the sale and special promo are combined.
Staub makes some of the most stunning cookware. Oven safe, of course, and perfect for braising or roasting. Staub's sturdy craftsmanship is time-tested and the classic design makes it a perfect centerpiece for dinner.
If you break wine glasses as frequently as I do, it's better to have a few extra on hand and this six-piece set of Schott Zwiesel's is on sale right now for just $40. Nice enough to impress guests, but not so expensive that you'll weep if one smashes (which it will).
The perfect multipurpose cheese knife that won't get stuck in a creamy brie but still go right through a harder cheese like manchego. A good price for a handy piece of cutlery.
This site-wide sale might be the right time to splurge on a high-end espresso machine if you've been eyeing one. De'Longhi is a trusted Italian brand -- and we know by now that Italians don't mess around with their espresso. This pump espresso maker is down nearly $60 right now.
Adorable doesn't even begin to describe this little fella. It's like the Wall-E of toasters and the perfect size for your new dorm room or smaller apartment. Or if you're just not a big toaster user but need something for those times fresh bagels show up at the door. We stan the Dash.
There's no doubt that KitchenAid has much of the stand mixer market cornered, and we do love our KitchenAid with all its many attachments. But for significantly less you can snare Cuisinart's version, which consistently receives rave reviews on retail sites and from home bakers. At around $160 it's about half the price of a standard KitchenAid.
