Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi weekly ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as Sunday.
This week’s theme is kitchen products, Christmas presents and toys, gift sets, gift wrap, Christmas cards, candles, houseplants and greenery, assorted home goods, apparel and accessories, personal care products, and various food highlights.
If you don’t see a product in your local store during the week it was advertised to hit shelves, it may simply be delayed. In our experience, delayed products usually show up by the following week.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Crofton Awesome Pan, $28.99. This pan is a dupe of the popular (and much pricier) Always Pan. We bought one of these last winter and it’s a workhorse in the kitchen with decent nonstick properties. This year’s model comes in Matte Black, Ivory, or Purple. It’s made without PFOA or PTFE and features Fusion Ti non-stick coating allows for easy release. It’s made with a long-lasting aluminum lid and a stay cool, bakelite handle. The aluminum body provides uniform heat distribution. It measures 10.25″ in diameter and is compatible with gas, electric, glass ceramic, halogen, and induction cooktops. Read our full review here.

We come across the border and shop here every other week. Love the store! Any chance of getting the artesian bottles of water again? I still have many empties to return actually, since I stocked up just before the pandemic closed the border. They have Aldi’s name on the bottles, by the way!
