Since 1990, OXO has produced comfortable, innovative housewares designed with you in mind. OXO is so committed to creating products that meet needs in all categories, they’ve been known to pull the man on the street into their offices to do hands-on research. Every year OXO introduces 50 products, which have gone through rigorous testing and development, sometimes taking up to two years. Some products never even make it to market because they fail to meet OXO’s high standards. Using the concept of Universal Design—the idea that products should be usable by the greatest number of people possible—OXO is constantly refining and enhancing existing products based on the needs of consumers.
OXO, whose name was chosen by founder Sam Farber because it reads the same backward, forward and upside-down, began with his two simple questions: Why do ordinary kitchen tools hurt your hands? Why can’t there be wonderfully comfortable tools that are easy to use?More About OXO
