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.

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.

Despite our expertise, even OXOnians aren’t immune to this — so when we design products, we consider our own challenges and fears, too. We asked OXOnians what they get nervous about when it comes to cooking, and how they solve it.

OXO February Challenge: Mastering Common Cooking Challenges

February can be a slower month; the quiet after the holiday season, plus dreary weather and dropping temperatures can make it feel a little uninspiring. We decided to turn things around though, and take this month to inspire you to tackle some common cooking challenges (and fears). We’ll show you what OXOnians have overcome in the kitchen, good tips for mastering skills and new ways to get better dishes on the table. Follow along as we take on new skills every week this month.

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.
