When I first fell in love with cooking and baking back in high school, all I could talk about was getting a fancy stand mixer like all the best bakers had. I was sick of the electric hand mixer my parents were gifted at their wedding 20 years prior (it reeked of burning plastic even on a low speed) and was convinced I could save my waitressing tips to buy myself one eventually. Luckily for me, my cousin ended up with two identical stand mixers after her wedding and so generously gave one to me. It remains one of my favorite gifts of all time and I still use it at least twice a week.
If you love to be in the kitchen, luxury kitchen items call to you not only for their beauty, but also for their function. And now there are more expensive and desirable products on the market than ever-the Instant Pot, Le Creuset Dutch ovens in every color under the sun and immersion cookers for sous vide cooking at home. Fortunately, Aldi has come in, once again, to save the day by releasing budget versions of these luxury items, all under $100, coming to stores this fall. Once each item hits shelves, it will only be available for a limited time-so run, don't walk to your nearest Aldi.
6-Quart Enameled Cast-Iron Dutch Oven, $29.99
Available on October 17, this affordable pot comes in a variety of colors to match your style perfectly. This enameled cast-iron collection also includes a 4.6-quart French oven and a 1.75-quart saucepan (both available September 19 for $24.99 and $14.99, respectively) so you can get an entirely matching set.
Classic Stand Mixer, $59.99
Just like the cast-iron pots, this stand mixer will be available on October 17 in a variety of colors so pretty, you'll actually want to leave it out on the counter!
9-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker, $59.99
This electric pressure cooker, available December 5, is only about half the price of the comparable Instant Pot version. Multicooker cooking is on the rise due to the set-it-and-forget-it ease and ability to cook a whole dinner in one pot at the click of a few buttons.
Sous Vide Precision Immersion Cooker – $49.99
Sous vide cookers take slow cooking to the next level. This appliance, available December 5, can be set and left alone for hours (even days) to cook your food to exactly the right temperature and texture while infusing it with flavor. Perfect for cooking large cuts of meat to fall-apart tenderness, but also great for eggs, desserts and more.
8-Bottle Wine Cooler, $79.99
This wine mini-fridge isn't available until December 19-but we think it will look great on your Christmas list. It's always a good idea to start putting that bug in your loved ones' ears ASAP.
