We Believe in a Better Way

At OXO, we look at everyday objects and activities and we see ways to make things simpler, easier, more thoughtfully designed–better.

We notice things. We notice pain points and pains-in-the-neck. We notice problems people don’t realize are problems until we solve them. We see opportunities to improve a product or a process, or a part of everyday life, and we make things that make things better.

Our products make everyday life easier, in every room of your home. From cooking and baking to brewing and entertaining to cleaning and organizing, to everyday adventures with little ones. We design tools that fit comfortably in your hand and in your life.

Everything we make is built to last—our products are engineered for functionality and durability—it’s why we guarantee them for life.

Sam saw an opportunity to create more thoughtful cooking tools that would benefit all users and promised Betsey that he would create a better peeler.

The OXO Better Guarantee

For 30 years, we’ve made tools that delight and exceed expectations. Our curiosity drives us. Your satisfaction inspires us. And we hope our attention to detail is why you’ll reach for our products again and again. If you’re not satisfied with your purchase, we want to hear about it. We’ll replace it or refund you, because we’re here to make it better–guaranteed.

Our History

OXO was born of love. Our 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.

They 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.

Design and Engineering

We frame our product development process through the lens of Universal Design and engineer items that pair innovation with purpose. We’re always on the lookout for ways to make everyday tools and tasks easier—even enjoyable. Our boundless curiosity and restless search for better inform everything we do; if we can’t make something better, we don’t make it.

We Give Back

After 30 years of making every day better around the home, it’s time to do better for the planet. OXO is joining the 1% for the Planet community, donating 1% of our annual sales to environmental non-profits that address the most pressing issues of our time.
