We look forward to summer watermelon all year long! This gorgeous new Italian-made gadget makes slicing and serving watermelon a breeze.

Solid 18/10 stainless steel construction quickly slices through a halved watermelon.

Simply follow along the rind to easily produce beautiful even slices.

 

Then flip your grip and squeeze the handles to grab and serve individual slices.

 If you've ever leaked watermelon juice all over the counter or spent 20 minutes wrestling a slippery melon only to serve mangled chunks, this tool is a life-saver! One of our new favorites!

OXO Spiralizers

by Kitchenworks4. July 2016 13:58

OXO was a little late to the spiralizer game. Other options had been available for quite some time, but OXO's patience and research resulted in two of the most efficient spiralizers on the market.

 

Tabletop Spiralizer

The tabletop version is roughly the size of a loaf of bread and can spin through a sweet potato in no time flat. Three included blades mean endless options for healthy veggie additions.

 

Simply flip the gray lever on the side and the entire unit is secured onto a smooth surface by a large suction pad. Select your blade of choice and pop it into the base- either spaghetti, fettuccine, or ribbon cut. 

 

Slice the end off your veggie and center it on the spiky grip and you're ready to create beautiful noodles, curly fries, or stir fry.

After just one use, it was clear that the OXO tabletop spiralizer is the most intuitive and efficient full-size option that we have seen. We were so impressed that we gave one to our entire staff!

 

 

Handheld Spiralizer

The smaller frame OXO handheld spiralizer is perfect for garnishing salads or adding hidden veggies into your favorite dishes.

 

Like many other handheld options, the mechanism operates much like a pencil sharpener. Simply slice the end off your veggie of choice, center it onto the blade, and twist away. 

As you get closer to the blade, grab your spiky finger guard and continue twisting to get every available bit of veggie. 

This handheld option from OXO has easily become our favorite because it quickly produces noodles with a beautiful round shape. We find the flat cutting section to be significantly easier to clean than conical versions and as usual, the OXO ergonomics are well designed.

 

Overall, OXO has produced the best spiralizer options that we have found. Every morning when we use them to create demos for our customers, we are reminded of why we recommend them so highly.

Gifts for Dad

by Kitchenworks13. June 2016 13:51

Father's Day is fast approaching and we have some perfect suggestions to celebrate the family man in your life!

Whisky Stones®

Handcrafted of Vermont soapstone, these 7/8" cubes live in the freezer until it's time for your favorite chilled beverage. Keep your whiskey or wine chilled to perfection without dilution. 9 stones per set, storage bag included.

ScoopTHAT! II

This is not your mother's ice cream scoop. Utilizing specialized heat transfer technology, this hotshot cuts through frozen treats by transferring the heat from your hand into the beveled thermo-ring edge. That means perfect scoops every time with zero struggle. And unlike that anti-freeze antique in the drawer, the ScoopTHAT! is dishwasher safe. In-store only.

rivsalt Himalayan Salt w/Grater

Salt is finally back on the menu. After years of being seen as an unnecessary addition to our diet, we have (thankfully!) circled back around to a mindset of moderation. The salt world has exploded with new and previously unheard of styles of salt from Hawaiian to Peruvian, with the most popular being Pink Himalayan. Mined in the Punjab region of Pakistan from a mine discovered by the troops of Alexander the Great, this unique set will quickly become your favorite addition to the dinner table. In-store only.

  

Porcelain Grilling Grid

This innocent looking pan is the unsung hero of grilled vegetables. Don't waste your time skewering one more kabob or flipping another clunky grill basket. Quickly and easily stir-fry your veggies to grilled perfection. Multiple sizes available.

Epicurean Cutting Board

Constructed of stacked layers of pressed wood fiber, these NSF certified boards offer the look, feel, and knife-friendly qualities of a wooden cutting board, while remaining dishwasher safe. Multiple sizes and styles available.

 

Oxo Travel Mug

Nothing will ruin your day faster than misplaced trust in a travel mug. We can personally attest to the leak-proof guarantee of this simple stainless steel sipper. (One may have been tossed into the backseat while fully loaded with hot coffee.) Push button seal means quick, one-handed access to your everyday hot or cold favorite.

 

 

Brooklyn Brewing Beer Kit 

Brewing beer is an ancient science requiring specialized equipment and ingredients. Unfortunately this means that many of us are hesitant to attempt this time-honored tradition. This all-inclusive brewing kit from Brooklyn Brewing provides everything needed to craft a perfect batch of your favorite brew- No guesswork required. Multiple styles available. In-store only.
