If it’s fine French cookware or sharp-as-heck knives you’re after, look no further than Zwilling’s big Memorial Day sale. The parent company encompasses legacy kitchen brands like Staub and J.A. Henckels and a whole mess of good stuff is down to enticing prices. The legendary cocotte (aka Dutch oven), for instance, is down to $130 for the 4-quart or $160 for the large 7-quart. Or snag your new favorite knife, a forged 7-inch Santoku blade for $50 — down from $125 due to packaging damage.

It’s no secret Health-Ade makes great probiotic kombucha, but what you might not know about is the brand’s incredible new line of cocktail mixers.

Winc Wine Club
Winc is one of the most user-friendly wine clubs and the service could be a really great way to help novice wine drinkers find their stride. And it has a healthy selection of wine overall, so more experienced oenophiles can find new and interesting bottles as well. For Memorial Day, Winc is offering four bottles for $25, plus free shipping. Six bucks for a bottle of wine is cheap no matter how you uncork it, but this offer ends on May 31 and is for new customers only.
