  1. 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 ….

  3. Pepe

    AdHoc Chili Mill

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: It cuts (not grinds) dried chilies into tiny pieces to add a hit of flavor to any dish

    The “Pepe” Chili Mill from AdHoc features the unique SchneidWerk® cutting mechanism - a special stainless steel blade that cuts your choice of dried chilis against sharply etched teeth - so that you can enjoy the more intense, “fresh” flavor of real chilis, even when dried, instead of merely crushing long-dried pepper flakes onto your dish! Freshly cut = more flavor!

    And the Voyage offers the same features and benefits, in a sleek compact highly-portable design … so you can have your own chilis conveniently available wherever you are … in your picnic basket, at your favorite restaurant, on your popcorn at the movies, etc. … yes, we know folks who love their chilis anytime, anywhere! And the Voyage from AdHoc makes it possible.

    It’s all that simple: put the dried chilies of your choice into the storage portion of these Cool Tools - either the acrylic chili-shaped top of the Pepe or the simple smaller, more portable container of the Voyage - and turn the top. The unique SchneidWerk® cutting mechanism is the heart of these Cool Tools. You can cut the chilies into the removable base to measure before adding to your dish, or you can remove the base and cut the chilies directly onto your plate or dish. Then replace the base - it acts as a cover - to avoid making a mess on your table or countertop.

  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!

  5. Architec Recipe Rock

    Architec Recipe Rock

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $9.99

    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!

  6. blomus Basic Large Butter dish

    blomus Basic Large Butter dish

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $41.39

    Why It's Cool: Simple, elegant design that goes beautifully from refrigerator to table

    There are “basics” in every kitchen: those tools that you always need, and use constantly. But often these are so simply utilitarian that they also are boring to look at: they perform their role, well enough, but they’re not particularly attractive. The Butter Dish is an excellent example of this quandary: it’s often a banal piece of molded plastic that came with your refrigerator …. But it doesn't have to be that way: as we know, function and design can be combined, and where possible, should be!

    And we’ve found an answer … the “Basic Butter Dish” from blomus (which is anything but basic)!

  7. Brabantia Wok Turner

    Brabantia Wok Turner

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $18.00

    Why It's Cool: Silicone encased steel make this strong and flexible for perfect stir fry

    Why a wok turner (kinda like “Why a duck?” if you’re a Marx brothers fan)?

    We all love using a wok turner: the broad-blade and slightly raised sides handle more ingredients faster, which is important in the high-heat environment in which it’s designed to operate. But it’s not just for stir-fry - think about almost anything you cook in a pan - you want to have the advantage of its broader blade, to accomplish the necessary flipping and turning motion, before ingredients stick or burn. This is why a wok turner can be a Cool Tool. But why this wok turner?

    If you’re using a non-stick pan, then you can’t use the traditional steel wok turner. And most of the non-metal wok turners we’ve seen and tested are either too stiff or too thick and don’t have the flexibility, strength and nimbleness to do the job.

    However, the Brabantia Silicone Wok Turner, with a slim metal core and a fine silicone edge, does the job so much better than most … assuring control, flexibility, and no scratching of your nonstick surface.

  8. 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?

    Enter … The Cheese Vault, from our friends at Capabunga!

  9. Carré Olive Wood Dip Bowl

    Carré Olive Wood Dip Bowl

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $14.99

    Why It's Cool: Olive wood provides a wonderful combination of function, design and beauty

    Don’t you love it when you go to a restaurant, and they serve a beautiful olive oil with herbs to dip your bread in? It’s so simple, yet so good, and it’s healthier than butter. Of course, you can easily do this at home for the pleasure of you and your guests. So what takes this simple preparation of herbs and oil (and we like to add some grinds of smoked chili) to the next level? What makes you feel that you’ve been transported to a cafe in Provence or Tuscany? It’s a bit of old world charm that comes from a hand-crafted olive wood bowl in which to serve it.

    And this beautiful bowl can be used for any number of small condiments, nuts, olives, crackers or anything else that you want to show off!

  10. 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.

  11. Artistic photo (by Piper) of both

    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!

  12. 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!

  13. Oval Banana Leaf

    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.

  16. 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.

  20. Charles Viancin Double Boiler Insert

    Charles Viancin Double Boiler Insert

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $9.99

    Why It's Cool: Easy to store, easy to empty, can be used in microwave, oven or on stovetop

    There are certain times when you really need a double boiler--any time when what you’re cooking is too delicate for direct heat. Melting chocolate or butter are only two examples; my super easy zabaglione from my single days (for each person use 1 egg yolk, ½ egg shell full of sugar, and ½ egg shell full of marsala, and whisk for a long time--until doubled in volume--in a double boiler over simmering water; serve over fresh strawberries) is another.

    The function of a double boiler is necessary in any well-equipped kitchen, but the downsides are that it takes up a lot of space, it can be used only on a cooktop and the shape usually makes it difficult to get all of whatever you’re cooking in it, out of it … even with the best spatula skills. Well, not anymore….
