When it comes to long weekends, Memorial Day is hard to beat. The unofficial start of summer means cookouts, sipping salted strawberry daiquiris by the pool, and, of course, Memorial Day sales. My mom would tell you Memorial Day weekend is the best time to save on mattresses and furniture—which, true—but I’m here to remind you it’s also a great time to score big on cooking tools and kitchen appliances.

To help you get started, we’ve rounded up some of the best Memorial Day sales 2023 you can shop right now.
If you want to see Memorial Day sales from retailers all in one place—and receive fast, free delivery—Amazon has wonderful deals on cordless vacuums from Dyson, nonstick pans from All-Clad, and the best air fryer I’ve ever used (I’ve used many).

If you’re looking for great deals on premium kitchen appliances, cookware, and cutlery, you need to shop Williams-Sonoma’s Memorial Day sale.
