OXO Good Grips

OXO Good Grips

OXO was born of love. Their 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.

Oxo are always on the lookout for ways to make everyday tools and tasks easier—even enjoyable. Their boundless curiosity and restless search for better inform everything they do.
