I love OXO and buy their products exclusively. The rubber grip for kitchen tools, and the SteeL line for serveware. Love the stuff...so comfortable and high quality.

Yeah, they are a bit unusual, but sturdy and very popular.

I have a couple items from them. They are bit more expensive, but worth it for the price.

Some of the things I received were Oxo spatulas for high temp (up to 600) and also my citrus reamer. I love them all.

I have an OXO silicon spatula and I'm not very fond of it. It has no slots in it so it's sometimes hard to get under fragile things such as eggs or pancakes. I used it today to stir fry up some pierogies and onions and it was fine. Otherwise I need to get a new spatula.

Maybe one of those long thin stainless steel slotted triangular-shaped spatulas would work for fried eggs, pancakes, fish and such.

I've seen Emeril use one often, and they look very useful. You can get one from either Chefs Catalog or Williams Sonoma.

I keep an open mind when shopping for new items, but I usually wind up with Oxo - they seem to have the best r & d behind them. Also, I've never had an Oxo product that didn't work properly or wore out prematurely.

count me in as a fan of oxo. i have the peeler, salad spinner, the mv-55 pro series knife set with an extra mini chef's knife, the kitchen shears, and i just got the mandoline for christmas. i'm sure that i'm forgetting more.

the mv-55 pro knife set doesn't stay particularly sharp, so you have to steel it regularly, but i love the grip and balance, and that's 90% of the battle when it comes to knives.

the salad spinner is the best i've ever seen, imo. i use it extensively with my garden lettuces every spring.

the kitchen shears are sharp, strong, and versatile. i even used them to cut christmas wrapping paper this year, after using them on a chicken (and cleaning them), and then a boot, and a tin can, and look, they still cut a tomato paper thin. lol, sorry, got lost in a commercial there for a second. but i did do the chicken/wrapping paper thing.

i can't wait to try out the mandoline.

Let us know how the mandoline is for opening wrapping paper. Actually that might be better suited for opening mail. The right tool for the right job after all
