Huge Holiday OXO Giveaway!

Posted by on Nov 10, 2012

Enter to Win this “Slew” of Products Now!

I am a huge fan of OXO products, as they were developed for people like me! As some of you may have read in my “About Me”, I was in an head-on collision in 1998 and now years later suffer with arthritis. I don’t speak of it much, except to complain to my husband AKA Dr. Phil-Orthopaedic surgeon. I feel that when you only speak negatively, that is what you will attract, so I try to be as positive as possible even in the tough times, and lately…it has been tough!

OXO began with a few simple questions – Why do ordinary kitchen tools hurt your hands? Why can’t there be wonderfully comfortable tools that are easy to use?

Thank goodness the man who asked these questions was Sam Farber, an entrepreneur in the housewares industry. Noticing that his wife Betsey was having difficulty gripping ordinary kitchen tools due to a slight case of arthritis in her hands, he saw an opportunity to create more comfortable cooking tools that would benefit all users. Sam came out of retirement and approached the design firm Smart Design with that challenge. As part of the initial research that included talking with consumers, chefs and retailers, Patricia Moore, a noted gerontologist, was brought on board to help understand the needs of users with special needs, and  In 1990 the first group of 15 OXO Good Grips kitchen tools was introduced to the U.S. market.

OXO products have won numerous design awards and are included in the permanent collections of many museums worldwide.

At OXO, living by Universal Design principles gives them the opportunity to see things from a different perspective. The goal of making products more usable forces them to first identify problems and inefficiencies of existing products (including otheir own), not only in terms of comfort, but performance as well. Each year, OXO introduces more than 50 products. Many of these products take more than two years to develop. In fact, a few of the products never make it to market!

Remember the “Slew” of products I wrote about in my Mashed Potatoes Post? Well, they did make it to market, and to my home, and they are soon to be in yours!

OXO has partnered with my team at VirtualPotluck to provide you with an array of tools you will need in order to pull off incredible meals this holiday season!

  76. Kim Bee says:

    I love their products. I got a few at a food conference earlier in the year and loved them. The downside is they don’t ship to Canada which is where I’m at. Otherwise my kitchen would be an OXO only kitchen. Their products are amazing.
