During the holiday entertaining season, when you may be hosting guests for Thanksgiving, Christmas, the New Year, or other events, there are certain items that make your work in the kitchen easier. Perhaps a slow cooker, or a roasting pan or buffet warmer. Maybe a stand mixer or air fryer. Or even a single serve coffee maker so guests can easily make their own hot drinks.
If you’re the kind of host who likes to serve alcohol to dinner guests, some other accessories might come in handy such as wine or champagne glasses, an electric wine set, ice buckets, beverage tubs, wine racks, or even an electric cooler dedicated solely to storing wine and other beverages.
Aldi sells all of these products sometimes. Recently, I spotted a barware set at the discount grocery store. This set includes a shaker, strainer with bottle opener, bar spoon, jigger, muddler, and a tool stand.
It’s sold under the Crofton label, which is not a separate company. Instead, Crofton is the Aldi brand for various kitchen products. Other items Aldi has sold under the Crofton label include an acacia wood bed tray, a rotary grater for cheese / nuts / chocolate, and a microwave popcorn maker.
Here’s a closer look at the barware set Aldi is offering.
What We Know:
The Crofton Barware Set (Product Code: 705462) cost $24.99 at the time of publication. That seems fairly competitive compared to other barware sets on Amazon, with prices ranging from the teens all the way up into the $60s or $70s depending on what type of set you purchase. So whether the Aldi set is a good deal depends on what features and pieces you want in a barware set.
This is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a limited time. Each Aldi location receives one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone unless Aldi decides to bring them back sometime. You can’t order Aldi products online if they aren’t in stock at your local store.
Here’s more information about the set according to Aldi:
- 6-piece set
- Includes bottle opener, bar spoon, cocktail strainer, jigger, muddler, tool stand, and 26-oz. shaker
- Available in Graphite or Gold with a wood stand
- Features stainless steel construction
