Pimp your kitchen: Deep after-holiday discounts on kitchen ware

Just because I can't cook that well doesn't mean I don't love my kitchen gadgets.

And it's the time of the year when people like me can go crazy, on the hope that next year, finally, I'll have the right stuff to not botch the bird or burn my cookies.

The Chef's Catalog website is featuring its end of the year blowout-sale, with savings of up to 75% on a number of items. Check out this Le Creuset 9-inch ceramic baking pan (pick your color!) for only $30. That's outlet pricing, folks. How about a Kenwood triple steamer (for all you impatient herbivores out there), $30 off at $100.

Best deal of all: Free shipping on orders over $99 -- through December 31.
