11 Beloved OXO Tools Our Editors Can’t Stop Raving About
Equipping a kitchen is no small feat. There are the cookware essentials you use every day, like a cast iron skillet and a versatile saucepan. Then there are the miscellaneous (but still necessary) tools and gadgets — the ones you might not even realize you need until you go and roast veggies and realize that ugh, you don’t have a peeler.
What does OXO make?
In a word, everything. OXO makes kitchen tools, gadgets, and even cookware. It all started with the humble vegetable peeler, which founder Sam Farber designed so his wife Betsy, who had mild arthritis, could peel more comfortably. The result was an ergonomic handle that made prep better. Ever since, OXO has been solving those little pain points and annoyances with their smart products.
Is OXO worth it?
If the amount of OXO products in our drawers and cabinets are any indication, yes, OXO products are absolutely worth it.
Not only does OXO make prepping, cooking, baking, and storing better with durable, ergonomic, and thoughtfully designed products, but the products are also built to last — we can’t remember when we had to replace our salad spinner.
OXO products are reasonably priced too, with many small tools and gadgets costing $15 or less. For the price, OXO products are seriously great quality. And the brand stands by that promise: If you’re not satisfied with an OXO product, they’ll replace it or refund your purchase.
What are the best things to buy at OXO?
Whether you’re looking to stock your kitchen from the ground up, replace some tired prep-ware, or just want to add some essentials to an already abundant cookware collection, OXO has you covered. Below, we’re giving a rundown of some of the brand’s most loved-items, many of which happen to be Kitchn favorites too.
