Happy hump day, Noshers! I can’t believe we’re already up to Day 5 of my Holiday Gift Guide! Today’s Gift Guide item is one of my favorite products from one of my favorite kitchen supplies brands – OXO!
I first became enamored with OXO when I purchased my first OXO product – their angled measuring cup. The measuring cup solved the age-old problem of pouring, crouching down to see if I had measured correctly, pouring, crouching down to see I had poured too much, pouring out, crouching down…well, you get the picture. And if you’ve ever measured liquid ingredients in a conventional measuring up, you know exactly what I’m talking about! Thanks to OXO‘s ingenious designs (seriously, their products have been featured in one of my favorite NYC museums – the Cooper-Hewitt!), a multitude of kitchen tasks have been made much easier for countless chefs and bakers! I have since purchased waaaay too many (or some would say “just enough”) OXO products because they are simply awesome 🙂 You may recall my giveaway earlier this year for the OXO Hand-held Mandoline Slicer! In addition to the mandoline, scale and measuring cup, I also have their ice cream scoop, cherry-pitter, can opener, and…okay this is getting a little crazy. But let’s just say that list could have gone on for a while….
Today, I’m adding to my Holiday Gift Guide the OXO Good Grips 5-Pound Food Scale with Pull-Out Display. This gadget is a staple in my tiny apartment kitchen, where space is at a major premium – I especially love it for baking when recipes call for ounce measurements :). And since it is made by OXO, it has a ton of user-friendly design features, such as a pull-out display if you’ve got an over-sized bowl, super large numbers on an illuminated background, and my fave – the zeroing function so you can measure multiple ingredients in the same bowl. Several people who have cooked or baked with me have commented on how awesome the scale is, so I knew it would make a good Gift Guide addition! But don’t take my word for it (can you tell me favorite show used to be Reading Rainbow?) – win one for yourself!
