Bin 8 Multi Kitchen Tool

Short on drawer space in the kitchen? This Bin 8 Multi Kitchen Tool will help. It has 8 essential kitchen tools, all housed within a shape similar to a wine bottle. You’ll have a funnel, a lemon juicer, a spice grater, and egg masher, a cheese grater, a lid grip/opener, an egg yolk separator, a measuring cup, and even a little attachment to use the funnel as a vase. It’s not expensive, so it might not last the longest, but if you’re on a tight budget it’ll do the job(s).

Tagliapizza Pizza Cutter

Is this a beautiful pizza cutter or what? Not that you need every single tool in your kitchen to be the best of the best, but, if you’re going to own a pizza cutter, it might as well be this one, right? A single ribbon of steel curves around to create a tab that accommodates your thumb’s pressure- it also keeps the wheel elevated off the table to avoid a mess. For anyone that loves their artisan (or takeout/delivery) pie, this might be the perfect gift.

Hot Kettle

Not that you need the warning, but this kettle gets HOT. The stainless steel body and handle have a distinct industrial vibe and its two red buttons safely release steam and hot water. Designed by Selab + Alessandro Zambelli for Seletti, it’ll heat your water up safely and efficiently. (Note: boiling water in a pan for tea or coffee is sad. Get a kettle.)

Kobenstyle Casserole – Green

Yes, your memory serves correct, we have featured the Kobenstyle Casserole dish before, but that was back in 2012 and it was a bright, tomato red. This time it’s done in a green color exclusive to MoMA, and, who knows, that might appeal to your kitchen’s aesthetic more than the red ever did. Kobenstyle was created in 1956 for Dansk®, a Danish manufacturer, and remains well known today for its lighter-weight enameled steel. The lid is especially handy with its cruciform handles; invert it and use it as the pot’s trivet.

Tahir Mahmood’s Mortar & Pestle collection

Ah-ha! Now you know what to get your favorite cook: a mortar & pestle that’s a work of art unto itself. Made of Dalbergia Sissoo wood, each mortar & pestle by Tahir Mahmood is hand shaped using the lathe turning technique. Once formed, each piece is coated with vibrant colors created with a sap-based resin. The collection was inspired by the Punjabi agricultural calendar, and I’d reckon that you’ll have a hard time picking your favorite amongst the eleven designs.

Malle W. Trousseau Kitchen Set

What in the world? $5,800! That’s extraordinarily expensive for a set of kitchen tools, so you say. Yes, it is, but this set is the ultimate set, and you’ll see why in a second.

The Malle W. Trousseau is a collection of the very best utensils from around the world. Inspired by their daughter leaving home and needing her own kitchen items, French couple Isabelle Mathez and Frederic Winkler created this trousseau by selecting each item for its “unparalleled functionality, beauty, and quality.”

When you think about not needing to replace or add to the collection, perhaps ever, and that it would most likely last more than a lifetime, that price tag starts to make a lot of sense. More of the trousseau below.
