Great Jones Just Launched Something Totally Different (Hint: It Includes a Collaboration with East Fork Pottery!)
If you don’t know Great Jones‘ cookware and bakeware, you should take a second to get yourself acquainted. Start with their Dutchess Dutch oven (which we named one of our favorites after extensive testing!), their versatile Holy Sheet half-sheet pans and Little Sheet quarter-sheet pans, and their ridiculously amazing, absurdly cute Hot Dish. (Fun fact: The Hot Dish and the Holy Sheet both made our list of Kitchn Essentials!)
Ready? Now meet The Whole Grain Family, a brand-new product that’s unlike anything Great Jones has done before.
The Whole Grain Family is Great Jones’ first line of utensils — ever! The three-piece wooden set is made of warm-toned ash wood and was “thoughtfully designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and serve a unique purpose that eliminates the redundancy found in most utensil collections,” a company representative told us.
The collection includes the following:
- An oversized ladle: For serving soups, stews, sauces, and the like!
- A spatula: For stirring, flipping, and scraping!
- A slotted spoon: For mixing, serving, and stirring.
The story behind the utensils is awesome, too. CEO Sierra Tishgart and the Great Jones team was inspired by a photo of Judith Jones’ kitchen, a company representative told us. “Her story actually serves as the inspiration behind the Great Jones name as well, which is pretty cool.” (If you’re not familiar with Judith, she was, among other things, the editor responsible for discovering Julia Child!)
One more thing: The utensils themselves are made in India. And, given the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in India, Great Jones is donating 20% of proceeds from the utensils for the first month of sales to local relief efforts.
The Whole Grain Family is available, starting today, on Great Jones. It can be purchased with the spoon rest for $100 or without the rest for $75. We’ll definitely be going with the former.
