Plus-size provisioner Costco has earned its status as a cult-favorite shopping destination for several reasons. For starters, who doesn't love to graze on free samples of frozen quiche or crackers while browsing restaurant-sized jars of tomato sauce and 10-pound bags of citrus?

Costco also has everything: You can buy an engagement ring, a wide-screen TV, paper towels, dog food, and imported parmesan all in one trip. And let's not forget about the store's extensive kitchen gear. The retailer has an excellent selection of small appliances, culinary tools, cookware, and knives to outfit your kitchen, often at competitive prices. And the great part is that you don't have to be a member to take advantage of these deals online, though non-members do pay a higher rate.

These are the best pieces of kitchenware to find at Costco right now, whether you're shopping for yourself or choosing a gift for the cook in your life.
