A winner has been selected: congrats to Julie! And thanks to everyone else for reading and joining in the fun.
Rummaging through my kitchen you’ll find more tools from Oxo than any other company. My guess is that you don’t need me to explain why. You already know that Oxo makes some of the most effective, comfortable, easy-to-use kitchen gear that money can buy. And I know that you guys love Oxo as much as I do.
Oxo was founded on a philosophy of Universal Design, a concept that anything that can be designed should be done so to be usable to the greatest extent possible by everyone, regardless of age, race, gender or physical ability. While it isn’t possible to design everything to be perfect for everyone, the idea is to create something that works well for the broadest spectrum of users. Oxo’s dedication to Universal Design—combined with their knowledge of housewares, intuition about what we need at home and, best of all, their sense of humor—are what make them so awesome.
That, and the fact that they want to give one of you an amazing holiday gift!
As part of the 12 Days of Yum, Oxo is graciously giving one of you lovely readers a baker’s package that includes:
* Their new Egg Beater (this is more fun to use that you can rightfully imagine—more on that below!)
* Assorted Mixing Bowls with their signature grip on the bottom—essential!
* A medium Cookie Scoop
* A 3 Piece Silicone Spatula Set (not pictured)
* A Silicone Pastry Brush (not pictured)
Pretty amazing, right?! And, of all things, I’m most excited for you to get your hands on the egg beater. Weird, but true! First off, I bet you don’t have one and, if you do, I can tell you that it’s not made like this one!
The Oxo eggbeater has an upright handle, their signature non-slip grip, easily removable beaters that make cleaning easy and a stainless steel bridge that extends slightly longer than the beaters so that you can rest the beater against the bottom to reduce arm strain (thank you unversal design theory!)! It seems like the kind of tool that’s cool just because Oxo made it, but I’ve tried my hand at one and found it to be way more useful than expected!
To be eligible to win, leave a comment by midnight on Saturday 12/17 telling me your absolute, can-never-live-without kitchen tool. Who knows, maybe Oxo will add it to their must-make list if they don’t make it already!
*This prize package is valued at about $150.00 plus shipping and will be provided directly by Oxo to a winner in the U.S. selected by Random.org. This is not a traditional sponsorship in that I reached out to Oxo—not the other way around. Once the details of a giveaway were worked out, I received a free egg beater and set of mixing bowls as a thank you from Oxo. All opinions are strictly my own, thank you very much!
