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.

 

2017 By the Numbers
Each and every product goes through multiple kinds of tests, but here’s a look at some of our testing highlights for the year.

7,500 rounds of cycle testing on the Squeeze Bottles to ensure the top cap snaps closed
100 pounds of potatoes sliced in a single sitting on the Chef’s Mandoline Slicer
80+ pounds of turkey roasted on the Silicone Roasting Rack
50 dozen eggs in 20 different sizes poached in the Silicone Egg Poacher
40 bunches of herbs stored in Herb Keepers to track wilting, color change, fragrance and deterioration
35 boxes of cake mix + 11 batches of homemade cake to test the Silicone Baking Cups (no complaints from the office that month!)
20 boneless skinless chicken breasts injected using the Flavor Injector
19 pies baked to test the Dough Rolling Bag and Pastry Mat.
6 types of beans, 5 types of rice, 3 types of lentils, and 3 types of flours to calibrate measurements on the Multi-Unit Measuring Cup
