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.

From NASA to Hotdog Fingers: Unconventional OXO Product Testing

OXO products are built to last a lifetime, so we put each and every item through extensive testing to ensure it will hold up to everything that’s thrown its way every day.

Often, our product testing is straightforward – we’ve sliced over 700 avocados of different shapes and sizes to test our Avocado Slicer; we’ve cooked over 1,000 slices of bacon to test our Microwave Bacon Crisper. In the OXO office, we look forward to product testing days because they’re filled with seemingly endless tasty tested treats.

Sometimes, though, we need to get a little more creative with how we test. Here are a few of our favorite examples.
