UPDATE Tuesday, 12/4/13: We are working to fulfill orders placed before 12 a.m. beyond the eastern time zone. Thanks for the enthusiastic embrace cyber Monday. So grateful for everyone’s excitement.

Fifty percent off all Dalton-Ruhlman cooking tools for today only: use the code word gobble at checkout.

Hard to believe it’s been three years since my friend Mac Dalton and I introduced a small line of cooking tools. They’ve gotten kudos from chefs such as David Kinch and Jonathon Sawyer to Martha herself (she actually placed an order through my site). We haven’t advertised these things, we haven’t done any merchandising, because, well, that work gives me a headache, just not my thing, and there’s too much fun stuff to do, like actually making things. That’s what I love.

To promote these tools, which I love and am proud of (except for the bamboo cheese set, which Mac adores, why, I have no idea, but they sell, go figure), we are offering, and here’s my stab at promotion and merchandising, 50% OFF ALL ITEMS DURING CYBER MONDAY!!!! (Seriously. Why four exclamation points? BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT AN INCREDIBLE DEAL IT IS!)

Again: Click on this link and use the code word gobble to get your discount.

My personal faves are The Badass Perforated (aka Egg) Spoon, the mighty Spanker, the offset spoons, and the little-known but awesome in-drawer bamboo knife holder—seriously love this thing.

And as far as gifts go, the above-pictured bundle tool cannot be beat. By anything. At 50% off less than $30. Emilia, can this be right? Are you sure we should be doing this?

All the tools are fabulous. One day only. Code word: gobble, case sensitive, all lowercase.

Happy shopping!


This is not only the best all-purpose perforated spoon on the market, it also helps you create perfect poached and fried eggs.

All-Strain Kitchen Cloths

All-Strain reusable straining cloths for everything from stock to tomato water to Greek-style yogurt to cheese. The world doesn’t need more stupid kitchen tools (banana slicer?! egg separator?!—see my video below).

I love a well-made THICK quiche. Recipe here for a classic Quiche Loraine. Happy shopping and happy cooking!

    This is an amazing deal. I’ve had my eye on the off-set spoons for a year now. And thought of them as I basted the turkey with a regular spoon. I can get 2 sets now, 1 for me and 1 for a gift!

  • Jared

    My shipping was more than that, I have been thinking about trying these tools for a couple of years. This is the deal I jumped on. A set for myself and as a present thanks.

    I have purchased several of the items Michael and have not been disappointed! All three of my kids have a Bad-Ass Egg Spoon. I make Eggs Benedict for about 30 neighbors on Christmas morning – have done so for almost 30 years. I’ve used a lot of different methods/devices and this spoon makes the most perfect poached eggs ever. I LOVE the spankers – the largest one was a life-saver when I did a massive canning adventure in 2013 – I could stir vats of salsa and jam. I love the offset serving spoons. But I think my favorite is the most recent – the offset soup spoons. I bought four a while back and we absolutely love them. I spent all day looking for a cyber monday sale that actually had something I wanted or needed. YAY! I bought three more sets. BEST. SOUP. SPOONS. EVAH. And I make a lot of soup – ain’t no Campbell’s or Progresso up in here, ya’ll!

  • Auntie Roux

    Oops should read ‘several of these items’. Need an EDIT button, site-master! 🙂

  • Luca

    well, I have been waiting all day to get back home to purchase, and code does not work because of Eastern Standard Time (Central time here…). This is very unfortunate, since it was not indicated in the posting. I hope you will be willing to honor the code for those like me and Amy above who came to the site while it is still Monday our time. Thanks.

  • Amy

    I’d be ever so grateful 🙂 I’ve been coveting the egg spoon (as well as a few other items) for some time now.

  • Julie

    So sad I missed it! Michael, we’re still rocking the Cyber Monday on the West coast! Was going to stuff stockings with Spankers!

  • Alli

    I also missed out because I am on the west coast! Is there any way to still get the deal? I was so excited!

  • Thomas

    Agree with other comments, disappointed that code is not working for us on the west coast. Saw a Facebook posting of less than 24 hours ago claiming a sale for the next 24 hours. Too bad.

  • Sarah

    I just missed it! I made stock yesterday and kept thinking the straining cloths would be really helpful right now. Didn’t know that it was a message from beyond to check out the blog 😉

  • Ria Moline

    I don’t like food that’s too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I’d buy a painting.

    I’m still sad I couldn’t take advantage of the sale. BTW, shipping was ~$13 for just a couple of small items.

  • Ryan Stenson

    Too bad this post hit my feed reader on Tuesday on the west coast!

  • Luca

    Thanks for the Update about orders placed after 12am Eastern Time on Cybermonday!

    Unfortunately, once I saw that that the code was no longer valid, I did not proceed to placing the order. Aargh…. but I took a screenshot of the shopping cart with time/date stamp, in case there is still a way to place that order and claim the discount. Thanks!

  • Willa

    I’m sorry this is a little late, but I’m curious what the shipping time is on these, as well as if we get any sort of tracking. (Considering it was all for myself, it’s not really an issue. I’m just wondering.)

  • Emilia

    FYI to all of those folks who ordered on cyber monday. All orders will have been shipped out of by Tuesday the 10th. We have a small warehouse staff and are working as fast as they can. Thank you for your patience.

  • Emilia

    On another note there will be another promo coming at the end of the week.
