Kitchens really take a beating. The casual cook contends with spills, singes, and smoke-outs on the regular, as well as less practical (but no less important) concerns—like the sculptural qualities of a stovetop kettle.

In the market for deeply attractive, deeply practical kitchenware? You’re in luck! We’ve gathered 10 tea towels, Dutch ovens, knife sets, and more—at a range of price points and styles.

Printed tea towels, Hawkins New York, $16
Bring a hint of nature to your kitchen with these jungle and beachside-inspired cotton-linen blend towels by designer Alyson Fox. Bonus: They’re available in five vivid designs, so you can keep at least one in rotation at all times.
Enamel aroma pot, Riess, $195
Tackle sauces, casseroles, and more in this 7-inch, porcelain-clad steel dutch oven from a 400-year-old Austrian manufacturer.
Vitamix Ascent Series blender, Williams Sonoma, $399.95
The Vitamix is the unicorn of small appliances: It turns grains to flours, and makes juices, nut butters, smoothies, frozen drinks, and soups. Did we mention it also self-cleans in less than 60 seconds?
