I have a very high opinion of the OXO good grips kitchen supply brand. They make well-built, well designed, affordable products.

I’ve been using their stainless steel flexible turner for more than a decade very happily, though it does need to be replaced every few years. It’s extremely thin, flexible enough to get under things, yet sturdy enough to lift them.

Their kitchen scissors are cheap and cut things very easily. In contrast, wusthof’s scissors are just terrible.

Another hit has been their glass olive oil dispenser — really well-built and nice to use!
