OXO has always been one of our favorite product companies: it has been at the forefront of universal design and seamlessly integrates function into the form of all its products. Here we spotlight some of our favorite new items from the company, some just recently on shelves and some you can look forward to seeing later this year.

  • 
  Heat water the old-fashion way with the Uplift Tea Kettle, available now. The two-quart kettle features a nonslip heat-resistant handle, stainless steel finishes, and green or eggplant coloring. The spout has a built-in whistle to alert you when your water is boiling and it automatically opens when you lift the handle, meaning that even if you've lost some of your grip strength, you can still pour a cup for your afternoon tea.

  The stainless steel Box Grater, available in September, eliminates the need for multiple graters as well as the need for a cutting board on which to grate. It features coarse, medium, and fine grating surfaces and a box at the bottom to catch your shredded goods. After you've washed up, store the box inside the grater to save space.

  Another space-saving grater is the new Two-Fold Grater, available in November. The tool features a medium and coarse grater that can be positioned like a tent for grating over a cutting board or taken apart to be used one at a time.

  There are so many compost bin designs out there but what makes the OXO Compost Bin great is its simplicity. The bin is an approximately eight-inch cube and weighs just 1.21 pounds. The lid stands open when you're filling it and then removes with a twist for easy emptying and cleaning.

  We long loved the POP containers from OXO. With one push they open and with another they create an airtight seal. Come October, the containers will be available with this new stainless steel lid finish.

  Mixing bowls are ubiquitous. These ones stand out with their small details. The one-and-a-half-, three-, and five-quart bowls feature nonslip handles and bases as well as spouts for pouring. They are color-coded by size and nest away for space-saving storage.

  Few things are more useful in the kitchen than a pair of kitchen scissors. You can cut poultry, snip herbs, cut flower stems, and more. This new pair features a streamlined design that minimizes finger-scissor rubbing and increases ease of use.

  Later this year, OXO will introduce its new Tot Booster Seat. The chair features a three-inch, urethane cushion (available in orange, green, or taupe) and a backrest that locks in place but can fold forward with the push of a button. Its flat stowaway form and the integrated handle let you carry it like a briefcase when you're on the move.
