Tower Cerastone 5 Piece Pan Set – was £94.99, now £62.99
If you’ve been thinking maybe it’s time to freshen up your cookware collection, a brand-new set of pans could be a great place to start. The stylish Cerastone coating on this Tower Cerastone 5 Piece Pan Set will blend seamlessly into most kitchens.
Speaking of coatings, you know you can cook your Pinch of Nom recipes with a spritz of low-calorie cooking spray in this set – every piece is non-stick. That means healthier cooking with little oil, and less faffing around when it comes to washing-up!
This set is also covered by a shiny 5-year guarantee, so you’ve got some peace of mind if you find they’re not up to scratch.
Long-lasting cookware is exactly what you want to make Italian-style favourites like our Carbonara Risotto on repeat. To ramp up the indulgence for fewer calories, you can count on a large frying pan like Tower’s Cerastone to get the best from your ingredients’ flavours time and time again.
MasterClass Shallow Casserole Dish with Lid – was £64.99, now £31.59
Save yourself the hassle of moving ingredients from the pan to an oven-safe dish with a MasterClass Shallow Casserole Dish. This durable bit of kit can take the heat whether it’s on the hob or in the oven, which is ideal when you’re rustling up a recipe like our Cheesy Mac ‘n’ Meatballs.
With cauliflower cheese sauce, meatballs and macaroni, there are lots of bits involved that make this one a hearty midweek treat. MasterClass’ casserole dish would be a wonder for this recipe, as you can combine your ingredients on the hob, give them a good stir and pop them straight in the oven without a worry.
The £31.59 price point won’t last forever, so get a wriggle on if you’re thinking of taking advantage.
Tefal Optichef Quartzite Hand Blender – was £74.99, now £46.79
From soups to smoothies to sweet treats and savoury sauces, there’s no denying that hand blenders are a super useful bit of kitchen kit. This Tefal Optichef Quartzite Hand Blender is currently listed for a great price, and it’s got all the attachments you’d need to blend, whisk and chop your way through preparing healthier dishes.
It has a few different speed modes to choose from, so you can adjust the power to best suit the dish you’re making.
Making home-cooked warmers like our Spinach and Rocket Soup is so much easier with a hand blender. Once the potatoes, herbs and veggies are all finished bubbling away, you can blitz them all together in a matter of moments.
All of the parts (including the splash guard) are dishwasher safe, so there’s no need to worry about the washing-up either.
Kenwood Blend-X Fresh Blender – was £66.99, now £36.49
When you’re on a mission to batch cook lots of healthy portions, a unit with a large jug like Kenwood’s Blend-X Fresh Blendercan come in especially useful. It has a 2-litre capacity, so there’s plenty of room to throw in chunky fresh or frozen fruits and veggies.
The homemade sauce with our Creamy Roasted Red Pepper and Chicken Pasta is so delicious, you’ll definitely want to make more than enough. There’s quite a lot of ingredients involved, with roasted red peppers, onions, herbs, spices and cream cheese in the mix, so you’ll want a powerful blender – the Blend-X’s 650W motor would definitely do the job.
Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Smart Cooker – was £89.99, now £59.99
As one of the best-known pressure cookers out there, we’re thrilled to see the Instant Pot Duo in Amazon’s deals this year. If you’ve had buying a pressure cooker on the brain for a little while now, we can’t think of a better time to take the plunge.
From slow-cooking stews and preparing fluffy rice, to rustling up porridge and steaming veggies, it’s fair to say that Instant Pots are a game-changer.
The 7-in-1 also comes with a generously-sized cooking pot, so you can make up to 5 servings with ease.
There is so much you can cook in an Instant Pot, and our Instant Pot Thai Style Pork Curry has to be one of our favourites. What’s not to love about fragrant Thai-style pork that’s fall-off-the-fork tender in less than 45 minutes?
Morphy Richards 5 Piece Knife Block – was £42.99, now £31.99
Whether you’re a top chef or a cooking novice, a decent set of sharp knives makes preparing ingredients easier. This Morphy Richards 5 Piece Knife Block doesn’t just look the part, it’s also kitted out with durable, stainless steel knives in various sizes.
Ingredients come in different shapes and sizes, and it’s so much easier (and safer!) when your knives do too.
As well as chopping, slicing and peeling, sharp knives also come in handy when you’re checking if food is ready. Our Butternut Squash Roasties are a delicious alternative to classic roasties on any Sunday dinner, but it can be tough to know for certain if they’re ready. A sharp knife that glides through the middle effortlessly will tell you straight away.
6-in-1 Mandoline Food Slicer – was £29.99, now £19.54
It’s not always convenient to chop lots of different veggies. A kitchen gadget like the 6-in-1 Mandoline Food Slicer is a dream because it can do so much of the work for you in far less time.
If finely-sliced potatoes or spaghetti-like julienne veggies are what you’re after, the attachments that come with Fullstar’s Mandoline can definitely help.
You’ll need grated ginger and evenly-chopped carrot sticks for stir-fry wonders like our Sticky Prawns with Ginger. While it’s super quick to prepare already, there’s no harm in saving yourself even more time by using a Mandoline. That’s our idea of fast food!
Pro Breeze 4.2 L Air Fryer 1400W with Digital Display – was £119.99, now £99.99
A list of Black Friday bargains would not be complete without an air fryer. There’s a decent saving on the Pro Breeze 4.2 L Air Fryer right now; normally £119.99, you can add it to your Amazon basket for £99.99 before the Black Friday deals end.
Air fryers are a surefire way to serve up deliciously crunchy food for fewer calories, with little or no oil needed.
Our Air Fryer Salt and Pepper Chicken Burgers are better for you and your budget than the takeaway alternative. Simply set the digital display to 180°C and wait until they’re crisped to perfection.
Pinch of Nom is in the deals too!
It makes us so happy to see that our cookbooks are part of the deals! Whether you’re looking to fill a gap on your Pinch of Nom shelf or just thinking about buying a copy or two as a gift, today is the day.
