We’ve all been spending more time in the kitchen recently, and at this point, it’s kind of getting annoying. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy cooking, but I’m always looking for things to improve the experience. With that being said, I don’t want too many things lying around. If you’ve gone onto Amazon and looked for a kitchen gadget, you’ve probably ordered one from OXO without even realizing it. The brand has some of the best-selling and top-rated kitchen products out there and for good reason: they look and work great. Now’s an excellent time to give your kitchen gadget collection an overhaul, and there’s no better place to start than with these essential OXO items.
Good Grips 5-Piece Airtight POP Container Set
If at this point, you’re still storing the pantry staples you use every day in the boxes they came in, you’re missing out. These containers keep your pasta, beans, spices, and more as fresh as can be once unsealed.
OXO Fish Spatula
This is the only spatula you’ll ever need. This will be the trusty tool you reach for in the kitchen nine-times-out-of-ten, and will replace every other spatula you own (except one: keep a silicone spatula on hand for baking needs).
Good Grips SimplyTear Standing Paper Towel Holder
I feel passionate about this paper towel holder. Is it the best paper towel holder ever? Probably. It’s heavy and easy-to-use so you don’t end up with towels that are ripped or jagged.
OXO Good Grips Scale
I’m on the record of saying that this is my favorite scale. But don’t sleep on the OXO scale for a second. This one is extraordinarily sleek, very precise, and it has a timer. On top of all of that, it’s really easy to clean and fairly spill proof, which for me, is extremely important.
Good Grips 3-Piece Angled Measuring Cup Set
What these measuring cups lack in heft (they’re BPA-free plastic, not glass) they make up in cleverness. The interiors are angled so you can read the measurements from above instead of having to try and read the numbers on the side of the cup.
Good Grips Multi-purpose Stainless Steel Scraper & Chopper
If you chop a lot of veggies, you should own a bench scraper. This one also doubles as a chopper to help section dough or crusts, cut butter, and more. It’ll help you get every last bit of your mise en place.
BREW 9 Cup Coffee Maker
This advanced coffee maker will brew you a perfect cup every time. You can control the brew cycle, water temperature, and more. The LED screen lets you know how fresh your coffee is and the dial allows you to start a timer and control how big of a pot you’re brewing.
Good Grips Cast Iron Pan Brush
Cleaning and maintaining cast iron is one of those things that’s actually a lot easier than you would think. This handy tool has short, stiff bristles to clean cooked-on foods, angled brushes for deeper cleaning, and a scraper tip to get into corners and grooves.
Good Grips Convertible Foldaway Dish Rack
A convertible dish rack is your best friend when you don’t have a dishwasher. This one is big enough to house large mixing bowls and cookware but also has tines to hold up wine glasses and mugs.
OXO Good Grips 12-Inch Tongs
I’m very passionate about these tongs. They are 12 inches long which is the length you want them, trust me. They also have silicone scalloped heads, making them easier to clean and making picking up anything you need as easy as can be.
OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner
It’s probably not true, but to me, this is the original OXO product. It solves a big problem: washing and drying lettuce is the most annoying kitchen task, but also one of the most necessary. But it also is easy to use, and better yet, easy to clean.
