Thumbs up Oxo Products.

Have any of you seen or tried any of the products from Oxo?

I have, and I can say that they are very good! I own a mandoline slicer, a rolling pin, meat thermometer, vegetable peeler, safety can opener, jar opener, measuring spoon set and a measuring cup set.

All of this stuff works very good!

I have a lot of Oxo stuff too, Corey, and I like it. The mandoline is the best.

I love Oxo. They make great stuff. I just bought a new wide veggie peeler by Oxo that I love. They have won design awards for their products.

Yes.

I especially like their fat rubberized sure-grip black handles.

Some people complained that the blade on the mandoline was dull, which it does feel that way. Not so if you cut yourself on this blade which is what happened to me during the summer!

I wrote a bunch of reviews on their stuff at Epinions.com.

I bought a wide spatula from Oxo the other day. It is great!! I needed a spatula with wide surface to flip pancakes, etc. The rubberized handles make gripping the kitchen tools so much easier.

Yeah, they were once featured on Unwrapped - the food show which airs on the Food Network weeknights at 7:30.

I have several of the Oxo hand products. I tried on of the mandolines, but didn't like it as much as one I'd had before.

This is the 2nd one for me after buying a cheapie one made by Farberware. I still have it. It works good, but the blades are not ajustable like the one on the Oxo.

Also, the Oxo is a bit on the expensive side and it comes in a cute little display box that I just couldn't throw away!

But if I'm in a rush and don't have the time to mess with the mandoline, I then cheat by using the slicing disk in my powerful Cuisinart DLC-7Pro. It whips right through that stuff and gets the job done in record time!

Heh, heh, heh (Corey giggles).

Meeting of the minds?

I forgot to tell you guys that I also got a salad spinner by Oxo. This comes in two sizes - regular & small.
I didn't see any point in getting the small one, so I just immediately bought the regular size. And it works great!
