OXO anyone?

Hey guys, im trying to learn more about the success of OXO for school. Any owners of OXO products have good things to say? Why you like it soo much... and would you keep buying OXO without ever questioning their quality or style?

I love OXO products. I do not think I have every used one that I did not like. I find they make a solid well thought out product that works the way you expect it to. Compared to most other brands I find OXO is usually more comfortable to use and just works better. I would never just blindly buy anything though. If their style or quality was not up to my expectations then I would look for an alternative.

I like their tongs, and their ricer. I have a couple of spreaders that get rust spots in the DW. The vegetable peeler with replaceable blades is also very good.

You know, OXO to me is a soup base. I've never seen anything else with that brand name. Like 'em a lot though!

So far, everybody likes oxo for the quality im guessing? Any thoughts on the actual design? More on the aesthetics... is there something that appeals to everyone in their design?

My comments were mostly about design actually. No so much aesthetics, but more function of the design. Their products are very well thought out.
