    Ask OXOnians: Our Biggest Cooking Challenges

    When it comes to cooking, no two people are exactly alike (we’re pretty sure that’s what makes potlucks work so well). Chances are, though, you’ve run into a task (or many) that you find intimidating.

    Staff Picks: New Year’s Resolutions

    At OXO, we love making things better. Better products for better food prep, cooking, baking, cleaning, parenting, coffee brewing and everything in between. Naturally, we also love to better ourselves – and New Year’s is the perfect time to do that. (Yeah, we know, it doesn’t have to be a new year to make a resolution, but it’s so fitting!)

    2017: Product Testing by the Numbers

    2017 was another busy year for us at OXO. We’re ending this one with 65 new products — and that means extensive testing to ensure our products make every day better. So, we poached a lot of eggs, baked many pies and roasted all kinds of meats so that we can guarantee we’re giving the best help when you’re cooking brunch for a crowd, preparing pies for the holidays or grilling for a July 4th barbeque.

    Ask a Caterer: How to Enjoy Your Own Holiday Party

    Some of our favorite food stars got their start in catering – see also: Ina Garten, Carla Hall – since they always pull off festive fêtes without (seeming to) break a sweat, we thought we’d ask a real-life caterer for their go-to holiday party tips.

    Baking Challah Knots at OXO

    We love our traditions here at OXO. From the all-office Thanksgiving lunch to our Halloween party, we love coming together, especially when it involves cooking and more importantly, eating. That’s why we started another tradition: baking challah knots. Every year between Christmas and New Year’s, OXO employees get together in our test kitchen to put our baking tools to use, and make challah.

    Behind The Design: OXO’s Good Gravy Fat Separator

    OXOnians spend a lot of time thinking about fat. How it can impact cooking times. How it affects cleanability. And, in this case, how it separates from cooking liquid to make Thanksgiving-worthy gravy.

    Ask a Food Stylist: How to Have a Picture-Perfect Thanksgiving

    We all know that on Thanksgiving, more than any other holiday, the focus is food. As important as flavor and juiciness are (very!), a fantastic-looking spread takes the whole experience to the next level. Imagine your guests posting Instagram pics of your turkey and tablescape in addition to the obligatory family shots. Hearts galore!

    Behind the Design: Space Saving Drying Rack

    OXO Tot was born out of necessity. In five years, 25 babies were born to OXO’s then 50 employees. Our engineers and product managers took the same curiosity-driven, problem-solving approach to parenthood (and the slew of gear that comes with it) as they did with creating household tools. Bib not catching crumbs, drips, and dribbles? Enter the Roll-Up Bib. What about a wipes dispenser that dispenses one wipe at a time instead of a handful at once? Try the PerfectPull Wipes Dispenser.
