Memorial Day is here, and while it’s likely your usual plans for the three-day weekend have changed, the sales have not. As usual, retailers are marking the holiday for honoring fallen military personnel with deals. Given that Memorial Day is also the unofficial start to summer, many of these deals focus on enjoying the outdoors. But if enjoying the great outdoors isn’t quite within reach, there are also plenty of discounts on all the kitchen tools necessary to improve your life inside.

Below, what retailers are offering as well as some standout discounts to satisfy all your summer cooking goals, whether they involve getting into grilling or simply starting a smoothie habit:
