NYC-based brand OXO designs kitchen utensils, office supplies and other homeware. More than 25 years ago, Sam Farber noticed his wife Betsey was having trouble comfortably holding her peeler due to arthritis. So, in 1990, OXO was born with the idea to make a range of comfortable, easy-to-use kitchen tools. The collection today spans food preparation tools, including the first 15 OXO Good Grips kitchen tools, including the now iconic peeler, cookware, bakeware, storage solutions, cleaning tools, gardening and small appliances.
