OXO is dedicated to providing innovative consumer products that make everyday living easier. They study people interacting with products and identify opportunities for meaningful improvement. Their thoughtful, “question everything” process and relentless attention to detail uncover the best solutions for life’s everyday tasks. OXO was founded on the philosophy of Universal Design, which means the design of products usable by as many people as possible. The company has been recognized globally as an example of how a well-executed Universal Design philosophy not only creates products that are beneficial to end users but is also a sensible business model.
OXO Founder Sam Farber designed the first OXO peeler for a pair of hands he loved more than his own. Sam and his wife Betsey were cooking together when Betsey’s mild arthritis made using old-fashioned metal peeler a struggle. They knew there had to be a better way, and created the now-iconic OXO handle—with its distinctive ergonomic form and signature non-slip grip—and paired it with a sharp stainless steel blade. OXO was born, and the brand changed the way we prepare food—and think of household tools— forever. OXO products have a lifetime guarantee.
