By , dealnews contributor

March 1 marks what meteorologists consider the first day of spring. Of course, a blizzard just socked the Midwest, and as of press time, more snow is headed to the East Coast. But if it doesn't feel like spring where you live, you can always retreat to that cozy corner of the home where it's warm and lively: the kitchen. And if it's not as hearthy as you'd like, consider these cool kitchen deals on an MLB-themed sandwich press, knives, cookware, and more.
