At Wirecutter, it’s no secret that we love OXO—in fact, we recommend more than 40 of the brand’s kitchen, organization, and household items. From coffee makers to toilet brushes, we’ve put plenty of OXO’s stuff through rounds of vigorous testing. Many have made the cut, with some even holding down the coveted position of top pick.
Whether you’re a home cook looking to upgrade some of your kitchen gear or you’re just trying to get a better handle on your cleaning and organization, there’s no better time than the present to get started: From now until Saturday, April 11, OXO’s sitewide sale is offering 20 percent off (with free shipping) when you use the code HOME20.
But when everything is on sale, looking through the site for the best of the best can be overwhelming. To help you find the stuff you need that’s worth your time and money, we’ve asked Wirecutter staffers most familiar with our OXO picks to share their favorites of the bunch.
An elegant kettle
OXO Brew Adjustable Temperature Electric Pour-Over Kettle
Deal price: $80; street price: $100
“It’s a treat to brew beverages with the OXO Brew Adjustable Temperature Pour-Over Kettle, which has temperature controls to make the perfect cup of coffee or tea. The thin gooseneck lets me pour a precise stream of water over leaves or grounds without spilling, and the kettle looks elegant on the counter. I love that the water will stay at temperature for 30 minutes before shutting off, so it’s ready for a re-steep if I want it.”

A bottle brush that gets the job done well
OXO Tot Bottle Brush with Stand
Deal price: $5; street price: $7
“I bought the OXO Tot Bottle Brush with Stand to go with the baby bottles I purchased when I was pregnant with our first child. Seven years and three kids later, I could not get a single one of them to take to bottles, but I sure took to this brush! It’s kept its place near my kitchen sink, and I’ve reached for it time and time again. It somehow fits into the narrowest of necks, but the bristles are long enough (and the neck flexible enough) to reach every corner of a container. If you want the functionality of the brush without a stand or the little built-in cleaning tool, we recommend the OXO Good Grips Bottle Brush too.”

A cold-brew coffee maker we love
OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker
Deal price: $40; street price: $50
“I know some people are ride-or-die for cold brew year-round, but it’s the transition to the warmer spring weather that makes me ready to move away from hot coffee. Enter: OXO’s Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker. It’s a low-tech kitchen gadget, but it makes better cold-brew concentrate than any other method we’ve tried, and a cup costs cents instead of dollars. I’ve found it even makes good cold brew from beans that I don’t like as hot coffee.”

Our favorite salad spinner
OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner
Deal price: $24 from OXO, $21 from Amazon with clipped on-page coupon; street price: $30
“There really isn’t a salad spinner better than the OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner. It’s easy to use, won’t fly off the counter when you’re spinning, gets greens and herbs dry, and packs down compactly to store. It’s a tool that seems superfluous until you use it and appreciate firsthand how much better your salad tastes when dressing can stick to drier greens instead of beading off of wet lettuce.”

Our favorite plastic cutting board
OXO Good Grips Carving & Cutting Board
Deal price: $22; street price: $28
“I love the big wood cutting board in my kitchen, but the OXO Good Grips Carving & Cutting Board steals a lot of its thunder. I prefer the plastic OXO board when working with raw meat, poultry, or seafood because it can be sanitized with a diluted bleach solution. Its 15-by-21-inch size is large enough to comfortably carve a 12-pound turkey or break down a couple of chickens. I also like the rubbery feet on either side of the board, which help keep it in place while chopping. Unlike a lot of plastic boards I’ve used, the grippy sides are level with the surface of the board, so your knife’s blade won’t catch on them when scraping food directly into a pan. The OXO board also comes in a smaller 10½-by-14½-inch size, which I use almost daily to slice an apple or cut a wedge of cheese.”

A reliable coffee maker
OXO Brew 9 Cup Coffee Maker
Deal price: $160, $155 from Amazon; street price: $200
“As the editor of all of our coffee guides, I’ve been around for many rounds of testing and tasted coffee from all kinds of different brewers. So I can safely say that the OXO coffee maker consistently makes one of the best pots of coffee you can brew with the least amount of effort and fuss. In the test kitchen, we often make coffee with the OXO even when there’s a full carafe of office coffee available in the staff kitchen—it’s just so much better.”
