Top 5 Must-Have Items for Thanksgiving from Harbor Freight Tools!

Harbor Freight is of course known for their wide selection of tools, but many of you may not be aware that Harbor Freight carries some great cooking tools as well—and at prices that put the “thanks” in Thanksgiving. Here are five must-have items to help make your Thanksgiving dinner the best ever.



Cutting Boards

2 Piece Cutting Board Set

Cutting boards are an absolute must for any kitchen and these boards offer several advantages over traditional wood cutting boards. The 2 Piece Cutting Board Set from Harbor Freight comes with two boards: 13-3/4” x 10” and 15-7/8” x 11” respectively. They’re made from super-tough polypropylene, making them more resistant to knife cuts compared to wood, heat resistant up to 260° F, sanitary, odorless and non-toxic. With an integrated handle and slim profile, these boards store easily and are quickly accessible for most food prep needs.

Ceramic Knives


6 In Ceramic Knife

3 in Paring Knife

Among other things, ceramic knives are ideal for slicing and dicing vegetables as they keep a razor-sharp edge but are lightweight, which means less fatigue when prepping large amounts. Compared to brands you’ll find at specialty kitchen stores, Harbor Freight’s ceramic knives with ergonomic rubber-coated handles are a lot less expensive yet every bit as functional.

Electric Food Slicer

Thanksgiving isn’t just one meal, it’s several meals of leftovers and few things are better than fresh roasted turkey sandwiches. That’s where an electric food slicer comes in. Harbor Freight’s model features a serrated stainless steel blade for producing thin slices of meat, cheese or bread. Dial the thickness from 1/16” to ½”. A sliding tray keeps hands away from the blade while the safety switch prevents accidental starts.

Cast Iron Cookware

Cast Iron Fyring Pans

Despite all the advancements of alloys and non-stick coatings in cookware, there is simply no substitute for tried-and-true cast iron. Go from the stovetop to the oven without worry. Nearly indestructible, cast iron is ideal for browning meats and vegetables. Once seasoned, cast iron is nearly as non-stick as those high-tech offerings on the market today which can sell for ten times the price!

Inside Track Club Logo

There are a lot of loyalty/rewards programs out there. Many are free—but I’ve often found with those programs, you get what you pay for. In other words, there’s nothing special about being a member. On the other hand, some programs can be quite pricey—there’s a natural foods market that charges $99 per year to get 10% off on future purchases. You have to spend over $1000 before any savings actually kick in.

So, with all the ridiculously low prices already offered at Harbor Freight, is the Inside Track Club membership really worth it? Let’s take a critical look.

Harbor Freight’s preferred customers (those who sign up to receive regular offers, emails, etc.) receive a monthly savings book with 50 Super Coupons. Inside Track Club members receive a monthly savings book with 160 Super Coupons. Additionally, Inside Track Club members receive exclusive offers on 12 items weekly—that’s another 50 items per month at a special discount! When you add up the potential savings, Inside Track Club members receive on average over $3500 per month extra in potential savings compared to preferred customers. What that means is you could save literally save several hundred dollars on your first purchase alone as an Inside Track Club member, covering the cost of your membership several times over.

Membership only costs $29.99 per year or $44.99 for two years. In and of itself, very reasonable. But here’s the kicker, when you sign up for either membership, you receive a $10 Harbor Freight Gift Card that you can use right away! You literally save $10 off the bat just for signing up!

Still not convinced? Hmmm. Okay, then. This one benefit alone should be more than enough—early access to Parking Lot Sale pricing before the general public! First choice, best price… what’s not to love!

Here are actual customer reviews about the Inside Track Club membership program:

“The Inside Track Club membership is the way to go if you want to save money. This membership has saved me hundreds on tools. Whether it be tools for working on my old F-350, or just getting something done around the house, this membership is totally worth buying if you really want to save money…”  – Joey, Vestal, NY
“… a better mix of many kinds of tools and merchandise, Inside Track has paid for itself many times over, would recommend to anyone and everyone!!!!” – cameraz1, Bremerton, WA
“Inside Track Club has paid for itself over and over, especially if you consider that we got a $10 gift card w/renewal. We have had the membership now for a year and didn’t hesitate to renew. We operate a small family business and the savings are very helpful especially when you need to pinch pennies…” – Annon., TX
