1. Food52 X Dansk Købenstyle Casserole
This casserole dish is a community favorite and for good reason. It’s part of Dansk’s adored Købenstyle collection—so the retro style and sleek design naturally attract vintage cookware lovers—but it’s also wildly versatile. The lid doubles as a trivet, it’s oven, stovetop, and freezer safe, and can hold anything from casseroles or steamed mussels to mulled wine.
2. Five Two by GreenPan Essential Cookware Sets
If your nonstick cookware set is on the last leg of its life, now’s the best time to introduce a replacement. Available as a seven-piece or 11-piece set, these ceramic pots and pans are made from tri-ply stainless steel and feature non-slip handles, tempered glass lids, a heat-resistant treatment that prevents yellowing, and welded-on handles for easier cleaning (that’s right, no more scrubbing around rivets).
3. Five Two Ultimate Carbon Steel Wok
If you love high-temperature cooking but don’t have a wok, now’s the time to change that. With a wide base, flat bottom, and tall sides, this carbon-steel wok has plenty of space to cook the biggest batches of stir-fries, scrambled eggs, fried rice, or anything else your heart desires.
4. Five Two by GreenPan Essential Saucepan
Boil eggs, melt chocolate, or heat up a single serving of soup in this handy saucepan. It has a built-in measuring guide, stay-cool handles that won’t slip, and the same anti-yellowing technology as all other Five Two pots and pans. It’s the perfect staple saucepan for your kitchen.
5. Emile Henry French Ceramic Fruit Storage Bowl
This ceramic, layered fruit bowl has been a best seller since it was introduced to the shop years ago. What makes it so special? Aside from its beautiful design, it’s highly functional. The bottom layer of the bowl is dark and cool, perfect for potatoes, onions, and other not-yet-ripe produce. The shallow top layer is ideal for fruits and vegetables that need to breathe—think bananas and avocados. And that cork rim? It’s intended to absorb extra moisture and keep fruit flies away. Clever, right?
6. BBQ Carving Board
