Our favorite tools for using at home.

9 min read

For the last three decades, OXO has found its way into people’s homes everywhere. We’re there to lend a hand, be part of special moments and help get the job done. Especially now, when our home is the center of our world, OXOnians (OXO associates) are relying on tools to make their every day better. Here are the products we’re reaching for every day:

We use our tongs so frequently that we couldn’t keep the drawer stocked with clean sets. Now our drawer has six sets and we could honestly use a couple more. I love how versatile they are, you can use them for absolutely everything!

How do you strive to make every day better?

I strive to make every day better by bringing humor into everything I do!

We use POP Containers every day when we’re reaching for cereal, flour or rice or anything else from our cupboards. We love them because they’re really the only part of our kitchen that stays organized. The kids like them because they’re easy to open and use, and clear so they can see how much is left.

How do you strive to make every day better?

By being mindful and thoughtful to my team, my friends and my family

The Smooth Edge Can Opener.stood out to me for its pleasing design and great functionality. Because it leaves a smooth edge on cans, I no longer need to worry about my safety when emptying the recycling bin.

How do you strive to make every day better?

Continuous improvement is a tenant of any good quality system, so I try to focus on little changes and building on small victories. At work, at home, in the community – every bit of progress helps.

The Pour-Over Coffee Maker with Water Tank is so easy to use! I just add a filter, freshly ground coffee and hot water, and in 3 1/2 minutes I have a perfect cup of coffee. It also takes up very little space and fits perfectly in my NYC apartment kitchen.

How do you strive to make every day better?

I know that I can’t make anyone else’s day better if I’m not in a good mood. I make sure to care for myself (sleeping, eating, drinking coffee), so that I always feel my best and can help elevate others.

I've started zesting all my lemons to make them go farther—the Etched Zester is so sharp and precise that zesting is super quick and it adds really nice flavor. Sometimes I use only the zest in a dish and save the juice for cocktails. 

How do you strive to make every day better?

I’ve learned that the best way to test a product is by actually using it – so for kitchen tools that means ordering lots and lots of food and working your way through it until you’re sure the product will last.

We love the Silicone Bowl. The weighted bottom is great for preventing Eliza spills. We also love that it’s silicone —making it a great vessel for hot food.

How do you strive to make every day better?

I like to make sure I do things that give me joy, like one-on-one time with my daughter and relaxing after a long day. When I’m happy and centered it tends to reflect in all areas of my life.

When we first introduced water, my son William learned so quickly how to drink through the straw (though he definitely did some chewing too). Now the Transitions Straw Cup are the only ones I’ll use for milk!

How do you strive to make every day better?

I try to take some time every day to disconnect from all of the distractions of life to focus on making memories with my son, my husband, and my parents. William isn’t 2 yet so he’ll never remember this time, but I will!

The Soap Dispensing Dish Brush is the complete package! I store it in my Suction Sink Caddy and it doesn’t clutter my countertop. The brush works great on nonstick pans and it doesn’t smell like an old sponge. I usually mix half soap and half water in the handle because the concentrated soap is too strong.

How do you strive to make every day better?

As an engineer I strive to make products that last. My goal is to make products that people love and hold on to for a long time.

Our Small & Large Bowls have been a favorite since the very beginning — from baby food to toddler snacks they are the perfect size and the lids are a lifesaver! She loves the fun colored grip bottoms and so do I. Anything that helps stop spills is a win!

How do you strive to make every day better?

I find myself looking for ways to make tasks or outings a little bit easier and more enjoyable. To me this means that small changes add up… Just because something has always been done a certain way doesn’t mean it is the only way. How can I take a situation where everything is working just fine and turn it into an AHA moment? I push myself to grow and tweak my actions to create lifes’ AHA moments.

I love the Silicone Baking Cups because they’re easy to clean, and also replace cupcake paper which can’t be recycled, so they’re more environmentally sustainable.

How do you strive to make every day better?

I volunteer teaching yoga at a local community center, and also love sharing delicious vegan recipes so people realize that eating plants is not only better for animals, our environment, and our health… it also tastes amazing!

My favorite part of the Wipes Dispenser is how easily it separates each wipe for one-handed use.

How do you strive to make every day better?

By connecting with people, especially my teamI I believe you’re going to get the best out of people if you connect with them beyond work and get to know them as a person.
