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?
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.
After hundreds of models, dozens of design iterations, and extensive research, OXO was born. In 1990, the first group of 15 OXO Good Grips kitchen tools was introduced to the U.S. market. These ergonomically-designed, transgenerational tools set a new standard for the industry and raised the bar of consumer expectation for comfort and performance.
I must say that so far with the products I have reviewed for Oxo they have achieved this, I was lucky enough to be sent a hamper of goodies to review from Oxo, I have so far shared how I got on with their silicone Tongs and Pro Potato Masher.
I love the Pro Potato Masher, it has changed my life in the Kitchen, so it makes me super excited that Oxo UK have offered 3 of Pro Potato Mashers for me to giveaway to 3 lucky readers.
