It’s no secret how much we love OXO and the brand’s iconic POP Containers. The gadget company puts so much thought and experimentation behind every single product, and it shows — every item either solves a problem or generally works to improve life in the kitchen. The POP Containers are probably the most well-known product from the brand, and they’re some of our favorites. (Chefs love them too; we’ve seen them in the pro kitchens at top-notch New York City dining establishments including Loring Place, The NoMad Restaurant, and Eleven Madison Park.)

And yet, after 10 years, OXO has found a way to make the POP Containers even better. Designers and engineers spent a few years working on upgrades to the containers and they just hit stores and websites today! Let’s take a look, shall we?

The new containers still feature that oh-so-satisfying POP when you push the button to open and close the airtight lids. The differences? The containers are now (finally!) dishwasher-safe and have rounded corners for easier pouring. There are also new sets and sizes, and special accessories that attach to the lids. Among the accessories there are these tiny little scoops, a date dial, and a brown sugar saver (a terra-cotta disk to keep the sugar from drying out).

You can now find the redesigned POP Containers and accessories on Amazon, The Container Store, Bed Bath & Beyond, Williams Sonoma, and Sur la Table. (With more pieces are rolling out as you read this!)

Here are some of our favorite new POP products.

1. POP Scoop, $4 at The Container Store

This little scooper has a special hole in the handle, which connects to the special hook on the lid of the container. This way, you don’t have to put your hands into the entire container every time you want to help yourself to some candy.

Whether you’re new to the POP Container fan club or you need to upgrade your old ones, this set should have you covered. It comes with five containers in assorted sizes, plus two scoops and one of those brown sugar savers. It’s only August, but we should point out that this would be a great holiday gift for the baker in your life.

A brand-new size from OXO, this little guy is perfect for spices or organizing bits and bobs in your junk drawer.
