When I became a new homeowner, one of the most important areas of the house to furnish was the kitchen. I had a dishwasher, electric stove, microwave and refrigerator that was left for me, but I knew the magic wasn’t in the appliances I had, but rather the ingredients and my ability to transform them. Admittedly, at the time I went to Costco and Bed, Bath and Beyond for all of my cookware, dishes, silverware and utensils. It wasn’t until much later that I discovered the convenience of shopping with Wayfair and realized that I very easily could have found everything I wanted, probably cheaper, and with free shipping. There’s a number of different high quality diverse brands like Calphalon, KitchenAid, Mastrad, Paderno World Cuisine and Wusthof that each have their specialties and place in the kitchen depending upon the quality and types of tools you want. While I have a wide array of brands, the majority of my products come from a brand whose goal is to make your life easier and more efficient in the kitchen. OXO has that perfect balance of quality and affordability with all of their products.
