Ding Enameled Cast Iron Casserole with Stand

I know next to nothing about cooking, but I sure know a handsome casserole dish when I see one. Made from cast iron (which is very efficient at retaining heat), the dish has a flat base that sits easily on an oven rack or stovetop with a separate stand (and non-slip silicone pads) to raise the dish for tabletop serving. Those of you familiar with the the ancient Chinese tradition of “Ding” will notice that this piece shares some similarities in shape; think of it as a modern update to some of the world’s oldest cookware.

Spatulas, sticks, tongs, and spoons- do you have everything you need for your Thanksgiving feast? The ‘Easy’ collection for Rig-Tig by Stelton hits the right spot for minimalist kitchenware. You’d best figure in rush shipping for any online orders, though, as you you’re cutting it awfully close for cut-off dates (we don’t want you to have to serve your sweet potatoes with your hands, now, do we?).

Maple Wood Utensil Set

Did you know that the closed grain of maple wood will not absorb any flavors or bacteria? That makes it an excellent material for cooking utensils in the kitchen, and looky here, here’s a set that includes a spatula, spoon, straining spoon, and tongs- what more do you need? Each piece in this set is hand carved from a block of locally-sourced wood in an Indiana workshop.

Hex Three Piece Baking Dish Set

See this Hex Baking Dish Set? Your Thanksgiving spread would look a lot cooler with a few dishes baked in these babies. Best of all, they slide and stack together for various serving and storage arrangements, so you can play around with how you present different meals. Neat.

Triangle Cutting Board

Don’t ask me why you need a triangle cutting board, because I don’t know. Maybe you simply cannot stand rectangles and only allow equilateral shapes in your vicinity at all times. If that’s the case, you’re a little weird/crazy and we should probably be friends. Each triangle is handcrafted by local San Francisco wood worker Luke Bartels from locally salvaged and milled wood. Three sizes available.

Waka Waka Cutting Boards

I know just what you need: a couple of odd-shaped cutting boards. Right? They’ll be just the thing to add a little interest to your charcuterie and cheese spread, and they won’t hurt your wallet either. Choose between boards shaped like thought bubbles and baguettes, or a triangle and mirror-shape. Plus, just say ‘Waka Waka’ outloud- it’s Fozzie Bear!

Normann Copenhagen Squeezer

Oh, what to do when you love juice from all sorts of fruit? Well, you could have multiple squeezers in different sizes, or you could have just one of Normann Copenhagen’s Squeezer. Adjust the sides to fit large grapefruits or tiny limes, and use the flexible funnel as a pouring spout when you’re done squeezing. Soft, matte silicone makes the Squeezer easy to grip and easy to clean- just throw it in the dishwasher.

Cantilever Cooking Utensils

Don’t your eyes just settle over these two Cantilever Cooking Utensils like a new glimpse of tasteful porn? Just kidding… sort of. I know, I know, a floating spatula isn’t as exciting as two attractive humans doing stuff or even a cinematic smartcase for your iPhone, but it should be. What are you going to do, go about your kitchen cooking a wonderful meal, only to set down your spatula or spoon on the counter and get sauce all over your counter? Gross, and probably a little unhygienic.

Terracotta Funnel by Grain

Why do you need a Terracotta Funnel? Beats me, but I know I’d use it for moving my matcha latte from a mixing bowl into a coffee cup, similar to the one shown above. Maybe you’d use it for funneling other drinks into other cups, or soups into fancy, small containers, but any way you use it, know that you’re using a natural, sustainably made, and foodsafe tool.

Pots by Benjamin Huberts

You won’t find these at your local kitchen supply store. These terracotta pots by Benjamin Hubert are glazed internally and have silicone lids for a tight seal, which make them perfect for storing dry goods- pasta, cereal, etc.- in the kitchen. No sacrificing design style here, as each piece could easily double as a vase (or group them together for a bigger centerpiece). Plus, they’re on sale (!).

Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens

The lines on the Grid Planks by Daphna Laurens would certainly tempt you to arrange food precisely along the perfectly ordered grid, for at least the first few moments of food prep anyways. After that, your sanity might be questioned. Consider the smooth side for cutting, and keep the grid side pristine for serving.

Easy To Strain Bowl by Ryann Aoukar

You do rinse your fruits and vegetables, don’t you? There’s no telling who sneezed on it, after all, and there’s always a chance that some creepy crawly bug has hitched a ride, unbeknownst to us all. But it wastes so much water, you say. I know, I know.

The Easy To Strain Bowl by Ryann Aoukar will help with that, as it has a spout/handle that makes draining easy- into a cup or plant or wherever. Also, if you’re a pasta lover, you’ve got to see the possibilities of draining the pasta on the counter, away from the bottom of the sink (germs!). Plus, if you’re lazy, you could just eat directly out of the bowl, as it’s perfectly acceptable for use at the dinner table while watching your favorite shows on the sofa.

Wood & Leather Serving Board

You’re not going to transfer whatever you’ve just cut to some other platter to impress your guests, because that’s a waste of time and twice the cleanup. So, you might as well have a presentable wood cutting board, right? This handmade Wood & Leather Serving Board by Pernt features a saddle leather handle with brass screws, so there’s just a touch of rustic thrown in with the beauty of the wood. Save yourself some time and have your veggies, cheese or charcuterie looking just as good as (or better than) they would if they were on the fanciest platter you will never need to own.

Ruban Bottle Opener

This might win the award for most minimal bottle opener, if such a thing existed. The Ruban is made from bended stainless steel, blasted on the lower portion and polished on the upper for a nice contrast. Maybe it’s the most indestructible opener as well…at least when it comes to normal household usage- I’m sure if you wanted to destroy it, you could.
