Ruffled or Classic ... Which are you?

Emile Henry pie plates bring a touch of French baking into your kitchen. Made from Burgundy clay so they can withstand high heat, bake evenly, and are easy to clean. Plus, they make a beautiful presentation on a holiday table!

Pastry Board

This JK Adams pastry board has a cleat so it fits tightly and securely to your counter. There's also a sizing guide that's laser engraved so your crusts will always match the size of your pie plates.

Stand Mixer in Pastel Blue

Bring a hint of retro flair to your cooking and baking projects with the Smeg Stand Mixer. A 600-watt motor that is reliable and powerful in addition to being fun and well designed.

The Professional Mandoline

The Progressive Professional Mandoline is an essential tool for precise control in the kitchen. An adjustable knob means you can slice paper-thin cucumbers for sandwiches or thickly cut potatoes for waffle fries. Non-skid feet prevent this mandoline from moving while in use, but they fold up nicely for easy storage.

Thread Towels for the perfect finishing touch

Hilary Crowell runs a small-batch weaving studio in Bath, Maine, creating handwoven wearables and home goods. The Cultivated Thread works exclusively with natural fibers and strives to source organic and/or U.S. produced materials. Her towels are wonderfully absorbent and bring a bright splash of color to every kitchen.

Cutting Boards

TeakHaus cutting boards are kind to your knives (and kind on your eyes), naturally anti-bacterial, made from sustainable forests and will last forever.

Mini Spoons

Let's get right to the important point ... Mini Supoons are perfect for getting every last bit of peanut butter! They're also an excellent tool for tasting and seasoning.


Thermopops' quick-response thermometers are essential items in our kitchen and our travel kit.

Clean Up can be Fun

Around here, EuroScrubbies are staff and customer favorites for cleaning pots and pans (including non-stick), glass, sinks, cooktops, tea stains from porcelain cups, and whatever else needs a bit of scrubbing.
