Whether it’s in my own house or my Airbnb, I get a little bothered when my utensil crock gets out of hand. Extra spoons and spatulas, mismatched colors, branded tools I got as gifts or from cooking classes that I never use — all stuffed into a crock. I know it sounds hyperbolic, but it makes the back of my neck bristle. Just trying to get a pair of tongs is annoying when I also have to take the ladle and wooden spoon out first so that the whole thing doesn’t fall over. It’s just kitchen chaos!

If this sort of cooking tool Jenga stresses you out, then it’s time to start fresh and pare down. That’s why I’m eyeing this OXO stainless steel gadget set that’s on sale during Amazon Prime Day

What’s So Great About the OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Essential 4-Piece Kitchen Gadget Set? 

The four tools in the set are the perfect foundation for a pared-down utensil crock. You’ve got your peeler for potatoes, shaved fennel salads, and shards of Parmesan over salads; tongs for grabbing and flipping just about anything; your potato masher, which can work overtime for creamy root vegetable soups; and a balloon whisk for quick whipped cream, scrambled eggs, and salad dressings. OXO stocks some of our favorite kitchen tools so you can trust that this set will deliver on all fronts.

If you’re outfitting a rental like I am, you really don’t need much more beyond these essentials. Keep the slick theme going with a black silicone spatula and a stainless steel spoon, and your guests should be able to throw together pretty much any meal. (Plus, the kitchen will look so streamlined.) And remember, the fewer tools you provide, the fewer tools you’ll have to clean with every visit. So providing just the essentials is really the way to go.  

At home, if you want to splurge a bit more, pair your stainless steel crock with a Le Creuset stoneware crock filled with the extras you may need for larger cooking and baking projects. I love the look of this sleek crock and the fact that you can pick from a range of colors to match your own aesthetic. 

Banish that annoying kitchen tool Jenga-ing for good. Peace of mind in the kitchen is only a set of OXO tools away.
