  1. AdHoc Champ Champagne Stopper

    AdHoc "Champ" Champagne Stopper

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $45.00

    Why It's Cool: Preserves the bubbles, looks great, takes up very little space in the drawer or fridge

    There are at least 2 major issues with Champagne stoppers: they take up too much space on your refrigerator shelf and in your drawer and they’re awkward to use. Often they simply don’t work, because they cannot withstand the pressure from the bottle. And many are just plain ugly.

    Now you can banish all those issues from your bar!

  2. AdHoc Pisa Cheese Grater

    AdHoc "Pisa" Cheese Grater

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $27.49

    Why It's Cool: Very smooth and natural operation

    There are so many times that we all want freshly grated cheese on some dish: for us, last night it was grilled eggplant slices. Tonight it’s haricots vert. Every other night it’s Zucchetti alla Colbrook - the summertime substitute for real pasta. And when we can go back to real pasta, oh yeah!  .... yum!

    But how do you apply really fine, really focused freshly grated cheese, not too much, but on the plate, on the food? Flat graters work, but not always so neatly. So what do you do?

    Why It's Cool: Beautiful European design, sprays a beautiful fine mist

    Occasionally life hands you lemonade when you thought you only had lemons … right?

    When we started testing oil pump spray bottles, we looked at several and, after testing, made our choices … you’ve seen those we’ve recommended and have bought many ….  but there was one other pump sprayer out there that we wanted to recommend, but it was too expensive: the “Quality/Value/Price” algorithm just wasn’t right … until now ….

  4. AdHoc DuoMill Pure

    AdHoc DuoMill Pure

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $49.99

    Why It's Cool: Both salt and pepper in one tower with 2 adjustable ceramic mills; great functionality and beautiful too!

    Salt and Pepper: essential ingredients in almost every recipe, and therefore in every kitchen and on every tabletop! And there are so many ways to ‘deliver’ these ingredients to your food … we offer electric (Piper’s primary faves!) and manual (Kennedy’s personal preferences!) But the good ones have a few things in common:

    • rapid, consistent and evenly distributed throughput,
    • adjustable grinders for individualized preferences,
    • comfortable ease of use, and
    • no messy “leave-behind” on your countertop or tabletop.

    Over these 5+ years of searching worldwide for truly Cool Tools, we’ve learned a lot, our requirements have become stricter, and the possible field of acceptable choices has narrowed. But this product truly is one of the best! And it’s from one of the first companies we worked with when we started our business!

    Why It's Cool: Holds a recipe sheet or card off the counter and at a great angle

    With more of us printing recipes off the internet (maybe even some from Colbrook Kitchen!), someone had to come up with an elegant solution for getting the recipe off the counter and into an upright, readable position...and someone did!

    blomus "Knik" Trivet

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $13.99

    Why It's Cool: Great trivet that folds up to take up very little space

    Trivets are essential tools for handling or serving any hot dish, to protect your countertops or your dining table. If you have ever forgotten to use one, then you’ve never forgotten the damage a hot dish can do, especially to wood. Everybody has some sort of trivet, or maybe a few trivets, or maybe even a collection …but simple is better: “X” marks the spot, with the blomus® Knik™ Trivet.

  7. Confessions of a Serial Entertainer by Steven Stolman

    Book: Confessions of a Serial Entertainer by Steven Stolman (signed by the author)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $29.99

    Why It's Cool: Witty, entertaining and informative book about how to be a gracious, relaxed and confident host.

    We love cookbooks and have a huge library of them, but it’s not something we’ve chosen to carry at Colbrook Kitchen… until now. But then, this isn’t just a cookbook--it’s a guidebook for anyone who invites people over (or would like to) and wants to do it with a maximum of style and a minimum of stress.

    Steven Stolman, clothing designer, former president of Scalamandre Fabrics, author, and self-proclaimed serial entertainer, shares his secrets, not only of how to be a gracious host, but how to be a great guest as well. Steven is the author of 40 Years of Fabulous and Scalamandré: Haute Décor. And he's our cousin!
    He freely admits to using lots of shortcuts and packaged products to make life easier, and these tips and many others are part of the wit and wisdom that fills these pages and will make everyone from the novice to the veteran party thrower a more confident and successful host. And along the way Steven shares recipes for everything from Pimento Cheese through Chicken Milanese to Sorta Strawberries Romanoff.

  8. Camerons Non-Stick Grilling Mesh Baske

    Camerons Non-Stick Grilling Mesh

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $12.99

    Why It's Cool: Keeps your food from dropping through or sticking to your grill

    There are many dishes that can benefit from some grill-time - right? But either they’re too messy to put directly onto the grill - think anything with a saucy marinade - or the ingredients are too small and will fall through the grill - like scallops or vegetables - or they need to be cooked quickly but will stick to the grill - think fish or chicken breasts .…

    But using aluminum foil isn’t a good solution for several reasons: it doesn’t let the flame through to impart flavor or grill marks, it doesn’t let liquid evaporate and can lead to steaming instead of grilling, our turner or tongs are just as likely to cut the foil as to lift the protein cleanly when done, and all that fussing takes time, which can lead to burned or overcooked food.

  9. Camerons Tortilla Warmer

    Camerons Tortilla Warmer

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $10.00

    Why It's Cool: Warms tortillas in the microwave in 45 seconds...keeps them warm and soft for an hour

    With the recent rush away from glutens, we have been looking for appetizing alternatives to wrap our food for easy eating.  We love a nice warm corn tortilla; our favorite filling is Carnitas topped with Pico de Gallo and other traditional accompaniments, but there are so many choices: both traditional and adventurous. This does, however, present a couple of challenges. First, how do you warm the tortillas? And then how do you keep them warm, especially for a crowd? Many approaches to these issues have been less than satisfactory, until now.

  10. Capabunga Cheese Vault

    Capabunga Cheese Vault

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $28.99

    Why It's Cool: Convenient effective way to store cheese that keeps it handy and protected

    Cheese is one of our favorite “food groups” … and we love cheese in all forms … except spoiled. But we invariably buy more than we consume, so the eternal corollary question is about storage: how do you best store the remaining pieces before they spoil? There are many considerations here. Since most of it comes from the store wrapped in plastic wrap, that should be an appropriate technique … but it isn’t! And we’ve tried every other variation: zip-lock bags, vacuum-sealed bags, parchment paper, wax paper, and more. But cheese needs to breathe to avoid spoilage and none of these approaches allow that to happen, as nature requires! We sell the Formaticum Cheese Wraps, in sheets and in bags, but even this two-layered paper can be difficult to use in some circumstances and not easy to organize neatly in your refrigerator. What to do?

  11. Carré Olive Wood Dip Olive Boat

    Carré Olive Wood Olive Boat

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $40.99

    Why It's Cool: Easy to both serve and retrieve olives in a warm, beautiful presentation

    The Olive Boat from Carré is an excellent example of the combination of functionality and design: the “beauty” that we look for in a Cool Tool.

    This classic design makes serving olives - whether cured or straight out the jar - easy and convenient. Olives line up neatly in the Olive Boat and can be retrieved easily from either end … and refilling even while your guests continue to enjoy them is quite simple. Cleanup is doubly simple: as with any good piece of wood, no soap or water required. Simply wipe away the excess oil, while leaving behind whatever oil is naturally absorbed by the wood, to achieve the double benefits of cleaning and seasoning. You’ll use this frequently in your home, and it makes a great gift!

  12. Carré Olive Wood Salt Dish and Spoon

    Carré Olive Wood Salt Dish and Spoon

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $17.99

    Why It's Cool: Beautiful presentation at the table while avoiding the possible corrosive effect of salt on metal

    We love serving whole grains of salt at the table--you get a burst of flavor and a great crunch... and for those watching their salt intake, you use less because what you're using has such intense flavor.

    There are many salt dishes out there: we have a small collection of beautiful glass and silver pieces, dating from the 19th Century (it really wasn’t THAT long ago!). But the major issues for all these pieces is the oxidizing effect of salt on metal spoons left in the salt, and on metal bowls left filled with salt. It’s a damaging toxic mess waiting to occur.

    That can all be avoided with the Olive Wood Salt Dish and Spoon from Carré.

    Carré Olive Wood Spoons

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $15.00

    Why It's Cool: Easy to hold, sturdy and beautiful to use / Pointed Spoon gets in the corners of pots

    The plethora of non-stick surfaces in all our kitchens require a variety of non-metal utensils. Wood is the traditional go-to material, and there are many choices, from bamboo, to oak and cherry. But for beauty and durability, olive is the choice. And as many old olive groves around the Mediterranean go out of production, local artisans are discovering that making olive wood utensils also is the sustainable choice. These are being executed in both traditional and innovative designs, with exceptional functionality … Cool Tools, each and every one!

    Carré Salt Keepers

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: Beautiful way to hold salt for kitchen or table / Double Salt Dish is great if you have two kinds of salt or salt and pepper

    As we’ve said often before, we love salt! We cook with it, and we dress our dishes with it. So we always want some salt - and sometimes two varieties - immediately at hand in the kitchen. There are many designs of salt dishes, but two design features are preferable in a salt dish: it should have a cover, to protect from moisture and food, and it should look good, because it is constantly on display on your countertop. And on this last essential point, there are few things more beautiful than the wood grain in olive wood.

    These olive wood salt dishes are being offered in both traditional and innovative designs, both with exceptional functionality … both very Cool Tools!

  15. Watermelon

    Charles Viancin All Silicone Cutting Boards

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $16.99

    Why It's Cool: Flexible to deliver cut food to pan or bowl, doesn't move on counter as you cut, dishwasher safe

    When we reviewed the original Charles Viancin Lilypad Cutting Board, we talked about the many choices of cutting boards, including the fact that we all probably have several, in various sizes and materials, in our kitchen. Everybody has to face these choices. Piper has written a Cool Tip on this subject and, in prior first cutting board reviews, we summarized the basic criteria for making these choices:

    • Size: it should big enough that the cut food doesn’t fall off, but small enough that moving it doesn’t constitute exercise;
    • Sturdy: it shouldn’t move or curl while in use;
    • Durable: it should be firm enough that cutting on it won’t gouge it to shreds, but not so hard as to damage your knives;
      Convenient: it should be the right size - or sizes - and it should be dishwasher safe, so that we can be sure it’s really clean the next time we use it; and, finally,
    • Beauty: it should be beautiful in your kitchen - or wherever you use it - because, as  William Morris said, you should “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."

    Alas, a couple of years ago the Charles Viancin Silicone Cutting Board was discontinued--it was just too expensive to make. We, and many of our customers were devastated, because it really was one of th ebest cutting boards on the market. Well folks...IT's BAAACK...in cool designs...and at an even better price!

    Charles Viancin Banana Leaf Silicone Lids

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $15.99

    Why It's Cool: Use instead of plastic wrap for a better seal and greener kitchen...and it's a universal lid on the stove or in the oven or microwave.

    When Kennedy and I started Colbrook Kitchen, we each found a tool that to us epitomized the concept of a Cool Tool: high design, high functionality and unique--something that in all our years of prowling cookware shops, we had never seen. For Kennedy, it was the Joseph Joseph Garlic Rocker, and for me it was the Charles Viancin Lily Pad Lids. And it seems that you all agree, because these are our two best selling Cool Tools.

    A few months ago, when I was making a strata that needed to sit in the refrigerator overnight in a rectangular glass dish, I wondered why the Charles Viancin silicone lids couldn’t be made in squares and rectangles to cover the glass dishes that we all use. So I emailed Charles and asked. I wish I could take credit for turning this idea into a product, but in fact, as great minds run along the same paths, he had already thought of this.

  18. Charles Viancin Cabbage Colander - Large

    Charles Viancin Cabbage Colander

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: Drains great, rolls up for easy storage (and looks cool)

    Colanders are a necessity in every kitchen … and the use of the plural form is intentional! But they take up so much storage space! The old-style metal versions, and even some of the newer versions in plastic or silicone, are just “too big” to go easily from sink or counter to the refrigerator, and they don’t stack conveniently, unless you have all the same models, and that almost never happens! And even the newest collapsible silicone models aren’t always the slimmest tools in your kitchen!

    And all they do is simply “be a colander” … they only serve a single purpose and don’t always do that well. Does your model have holes in the bottom only? Or do the holes go all the way up the sides? Does it drain efficiently? Or does water collect in the bottom, even though it was supposed to drain out? Does it do its primary job well? And can you do anything else with it? And how much space does it take up?

    Finally, we have a colander that answers all these questions, and more, in all the ways you would hope for … and of course it’s from Charles Viancin, whose designs are Inspired by Nature™ … this new design is no exception to his high standards of beauty and functionality.
