products company enamel stainless

The OXO company is known for manufacturing household products that are easy to grip. OXO makes a variety of well designed kitchen items like utensils, bowls, baking supplies, colanders, cutting boards, food storage containers, grilling tools, shakers, measuring devices, oven mitts, timers, and thermometers. In addition to kitchen products, OXO also manufactures household wares, storage containers, gardening tools, and office supplies. All of these products are of high quality and designed with ergonomics in mind. This includes their stylish and ergonomic OXO Tea Kettle.

All tea kettles manufactured by OXO have a loud whistle that sings when the water is boiling and ready to pour into the tea, instant coffee, hot cocoa, or soup cups. These tea kettles have comfortable oversized handles that are easy to grip, and they also come in a variety of stainless steel and enamel finishes. The interiors are designed to resist corrosion and sediment build up from water. With retail prices ranging from $34.99 to $69.99, OXO currently produces four different types of attractive tea kettles:

• The traditional OXO Classic Kettle comes in the customary kettle shape with silicone heat resistant handles. With a large capacity of 1.7 quarts, this kettle has a brushed stainless steel finish.

• The OXO Click Click Tea Kettle has a pull trigger on the oversized handle that easily opens the spout when you are ready to pour. With a capacity of 2.1 quarts, this kettle comes in a variety of finishes including brushed stainless steel, polished stainless steel, black enamel, red enamel, and white enamel.

• The OXO Pick Me Tea Kettle has a spout which automatically opens when the handle is picked up. This 1.8 quart capacity kettle is offered in brushed stainless steel, polished stainless steel, black enamel, red enamel, and white enamel.

• The popular OXO Uplift Tea Kettle has won many design awards. It is available in both the anniversary edition and standard edition. The anniversary edition has natural cork on the pour handle and lid handle while the kettle body has a polished or brushed stainless steel and zinc finish. This special edition celebrates ten years of making this well-liked product. The standard edition is available in several enamel color options like true red, black, white, deep blue, butter yellow, mandarin orange, and cream. Both of these editions have a 2 quart capacity.

The name OXO has no special meaning. Founder Sam Farber liked the name because the word OXO looks the same no matter from what direction it is viewed. The letters spell the same word horizontally, vertically, upside down, and backwards. The company name is pronounced as “ox – oh”. OXO has a research team that is devoted to designing products that make everyday tasks and activities easier to perform. Their products are ergonomically designed with big comfortable grips so all people can easily use them, including those that are right-handed, left-handed, arthritic, special needs, and weak gripped.

To view photos and descriptions of the full line of OXO products, visit the company website at www.oxo.com. All products may be purchased directly from the site. Also, the company site has a store locator option so you can find the closest physical store that sells their products. OXO fans can subscribe with their email address to receive company news about products and special sale offers. Remember that the company has a satisfaction guarantee that allows you to return any product if not satisfied with it for any reason. Just contact the customer service department at OXO and they will replace the product or refund the purchase price.

Many stores carry items from the OXO product line. Brick and mortar stores include Target, Wal-Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond, and other department stores. In addition, many online vendors such as www.amazon.com, www.cooking.com, and other major retail sites sell OXO items. At many of these locations, the prices for OXO products are often less expensive. However, most of these retail sites do not offer the full product line and do not offer all colors that are available on the company website. Purchasing from the company website may be the only option if you want a tea kettle in one of the less popular colors.
