OXO Good Grips Products

Prepping vegetables, fruits, or other foods is no easy task, but it can be especially challenging for individuals with poor motor skills or arthritis.  However, it is a little easier if you have the right tools. OXO offers several products designed to make kitchen prep a little easier.

According to their website, OXO was founded on the philosophy of Universal Design.  This means they design their products to be usable by as many people as possible.  Their award-winning products are even on display in museums worldwide!

To maintain their focus on Universal Design, employees at OXO go around collecting lost gloves around New York City and the world.  They put these gloves on display as a constant reminder of all the different hands their products need to comfortably fit.

OXO offers over 1,000 products covering many areas of the home.  For the purpose of today’s blog, however, I’d like to focus on the OXO Good Grips line.  All of the OXO Good Grips products feature a signature non-slip, comfortable handle that won’t slip even if user’s hands are wet.
