"I am struck by how great this cookware looks and performs. I've used nearly all the pieces, and aside from the practical use of pots and pans, they clean and store very easily - love the hanging slip case for the lids as well" a five-star reviewer writes.

This set includes a 10.5-inch fry pan, 3-quart saucepan, 4.5-quart saute pan, 6.5-quart Dutch oven, magnetic pan racks and a canvas lid holder.

Away - Global Glimpse

In seven years, Away has become one of the most recognizable brands on the luggage carousel. Once available only online, Away now operates several brick-and-mortar stores in major cities across the country, as well as London and Toronto. And it's also a CBS Essentials bestseller in the category of luxury luggage.

While Away isn't running a Giving Tuesday-specific promotion today, since 2020, the luxury travel brand has partnered with the non-profit Global Glimpse on the Passport Scholarship Fund and other initiatives to "empower the future generation through travel." You can learn more about how to donate on Away's website. Check out our top pick to shop from Away below. 

Away Bigger Carryon


Away makes several sizes, but the Bigger Carry-On is an essential for maximum carry-on space. It boasts cool features like a removable, rechargeable battery for on-the-go phone charging, 360-degree spinner wheels, a TSA-approved combination lock and telescopic handle. 

Inside the suitcase you will find a removable liner, (which comes in handy in case of spills, says one CBS Essentials staff member), an interior compression system and a removable laundry bag. 

Compared to the 22-inch version, which holds three to five days worth of clothes, the 23-inch "Bigger" boasts four to seven days worth of space, while still staying within those all-important carry-on measurements.
