Lodge 3.6 Quart Casserole Dish with Lid

Lodge has long been a go-to for cooks and chefs in need of quality cast iron cookware, making pans, griddles, and more in South Pittsburg, Tennesee since 1896 (via Lodge). But Lodge does more than just plain old cast iron, offering a full line of beautiful porcelain enamel-coated products, such as this 3.6-quart casserole dish.

The best of both worlds, the Lodge casserole dish's cast iron core means that it has excellent heat retention for searing, braising, baking, and roasting, delivering an even heat to whatever you're cooking. The dish is able to handle temps up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, underpinning its versatility. The enamel coating — which The Crucible explains is a type of glass — means, unlike uncoated cast iron, it won't react with the food you're cooking and does not need to be seasoned.

You can order the Lodge 3.6 quart Casserole Dish with Lid now, starting at $59.99.

Ninja Foodi SS201 Blender & Processor

Is there anything the Ninja Foodi SS201 Power Blender & Processor can't do? Well, of course, but there's still an impressive array of things it can do. A blender, dough mixer, and food processor all in one, you'll be saving not just money with this purchase, but also space.

The machine comes equipped with six preset buttons and two different blades to make chopping ingredients, whipping up healthy smoothies or not-so-healthy — but equally delicious — frozen cocktails (we suggest starting with the frozen cranberry cosmo to get you in the holiday spirit), and kneading dough for dinner rolls easier than ever.

Order the Ninja Foodi SS201 Power Blender & Processor now on Amazon, starting at $79.99.

Load up on Halloween candy

While many of the items on our list would be perfect for making your Thanksgiving cooking a snap or as a gift for Hanukkah or Christmas, there are still deals to be found for the major holiday that kicks off the season — Halloween. Right around the corner, if you don't want to invite tricks, we'd suggest you load up on treats.

Luckily, Amazon is way ahead of you, offering loads of Halloween candy deals during the Prime Early Access Sale that are sure to satisfy just about any sweet tooth. Of course, there are the classic Halloween candy brands, like a Hershey's assortment featuring Reese's, Kit Kats, and more; oversized Sour Patch Kids; and a Brach's assortment with Nerds, Laffy Taffy, and Trolli sour gummy worms; but there are also some dark horse treats (like Lindor Chocolate Truffles) and retro favorites (we're looking at you, Push Pops) which are sure to delight your ghoulish guests.

You can purchase a variety of Halloween candy on Amazon now, starting at $7.45.
