I’m going to level with you: We’re looking at a stressful couple of weeks and if ever there were a time for comfort food it is now. In a rare flash of good news, there are two can’t-miss-em $40 kitchen deals that’ll help make it happen. You don’t have to poke around our cookware coverage for long to discover how we feel about Dutch ovens. In fact, I’ll save you even that small bit of time: We love them, and Walmart currently has a high-quality 5.5-quart Lodge Dutch oven on sale for just $40, complete with free shipping. Speaking of all-star comfort food cookware, Best Buy has slashed the price on an 8-quart Insignia multicooker down 50% to just $40, for today only. It’ll do everything your standard Instant Pot does (check the reviews!) but at less than half the cost. See below for details on these two very excellent $40 kitchen deals.
