What Can You Buy for $10 at Sur La Table?

A few weeks ago I received an advertisement brochure from Sur La Table with a $10 gift card. Score!!!


I've actually been working part-time as a kitchen assistant at Sur La Table for the last 4 years and have a few gadgets from the store. Unfortunately, my kitchen is rather tiny and I simply cannot fit a big Kitchenaid mixer or ice cream machine. And so, I thought I'd buy a few little things instead.


I was hoping that I would be able to use my 40% employee discount toward the $10 gift card, but that wasn't the case. And so I wandered around the store for 20 minutes, mentally calculating how much money I could spend :)


Below are my purchases and the receipt: I only paid 42 cents out of my own pocket.



Who can't use an extra wooden spoon? And I simply love red in my kitchen, so the towel and scrubby will fit right in. Although, I will probably only use the towel as background for my photos. The 3 biscuit cutters will be useful for making cookies, raviolli, or maybe even cutting out perfectly shaped potato disks.

Thanks for sharing this. It's funny. Sur La Table is a great store, but the prices can be high. You just have to know how to poke around to find deals. Or get lucky. You were extra lucky to have a discount and gift card!

ok so since you have a checkered towel now you have to either bake a pie or make fried chicken. if pie, i request cherry. if fried chicken, i request slightly spicey.

I think the towel would be a cute photo background idea. I saw you were on sugar bomber!

I love trying to find all sort of little things at expensive kitchen stores (why do they always seem so expensive, I wonder..) It's just much more fun to come home with 20 small things, instead of one big!

OMG..if I worked there I would NEVER get a paycheck. It would be spent before I earned it
