  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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    Brod & Taylor Knife Sharpeners

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: Stylish, easy and incredibly effective knife sharpeners

    Sharpening your knives is an everyday task for everyone who cooks … but it’s often both a pain and a problem: are you doing it correctly? Is what you’re doing effective, or will it hurt your knives? You wind up avoiding the task because it’s one of those chores you don’t feel comfortable with, so you live with dull knives until you can take your knives to a professional, which is both expensive and inconvenient.

    A friend and customer (thanks, Suzy; you got 100 Cooks’ Club Points!) told us about a great knife sharpener that she got. We love leads from our customers, so we sought it out, checked it out, and tested it out, and we were hooked…! This is a truly unique, highly effective and easy to use approach to an everyday problem: getting and keeping your steel knives sharp! You can choose between the Basic, the Classic and the Professional models … all with Austrian Tungsten Carbide blades for the same highly effective sharpening experience!

  6. Camerons Mini Stove-Top Smoker

    Camerons Mini Stove-Top Smoker

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $34.99

    Why It's Cool: Delicious smoked flavor... indoors... fast and easy!

    We love smoked food, starting with pork barbeque (there is no other kind, you know!) and evolving to include chipotles of a variety of chilis, and smoked tomatoes for homemade ketchup and tomato sauce. And all manner of fish, poultry and meats! But these have been major day-long projects in the Big Smoker - done very low and slow for hours. So it doesn’t get done as often as it might, because it’s a bit of a hassle.

    No longer! We’ve found an indoor stovetop solution that enables you to have smoked whatever, whenever, in a remarkably short time! And you can use it on your outdoor grill too!

  7. 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.

    Camerons Smoking Chips

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List

    Why It's Cool: All your favorite wood flavors in convenient, ready-to-use form

    When using the Camerons Stovetop Smoker, you can choose from 9 varieties of wood chips - 100% real wood, processed to remove the natural resins that leave an unpleasant taste in your food, and chopped very fine specifically for use in the Smoker.

    Each has its own flavor profile, for pairing with your food...

    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!

  10. 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.

  12. Chef'n Buttercup (Butter Maker)

    Chef'n Buttercup (Butter Maker)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $14.99

    Why It's Cool: Make your own compound butters at home--wow your friends!

    I just made butter! Let me say that again: I JUST MADE BUTTER! OK, I did that once before in my life when I was in first grade, but that was hard, and this is so easy I’ve already done it several times. This is one of the coolest things ever. Why is it so cool? First, you know the quality of your ingredients, and it’s only what you choose to add. Second, you have unlimited possibilities to make thoroughly flavored compound butters to complement any dish without having to mash the flavor ingredient into softened store-bought butter. This handheld mini butter churn makes fresh butter in minutes!

    Chef'n Twist 'n Sprout (Brussels Sprout Tool)

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $7.99

    Why It's Cool: Makes the hard work of getting rid of the hard core easy!

    Brussels sprouts--the new “it” vegetable, that people are using to make everything from little chunks of roasted goodness, to “slaw”-type salads, to hash, to ethereal sauteed leaves. It’s an extremely versatile little cabbage cousin.

    But the one semi-downside of brussels sprouts is their sometimes bitter and always hard core: getting rid of that core is no easy feat. We’ve tried paring knives, but the obvious risk to fingers is always present. We tried a melon baller, but that just didn’t dig deeply enough. We even tried a strawberry huller, but that just wasn’t strong enough. So imagine our delight to find not only that Chef’n had tackled this problem, but that their solution works well!

    Cookina Baking Mats-Set of 3 Sheets ~ Colbrook Kitchen Exclusive

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Non-stick baking pan liners that are dishwasher safe and wash up clean and fresh every time.

    One of the best things to happen to cooking are the reusable non-stick baking sheets that you can use to line pans. Of course the number one benefit of non-stick anything, is that things don’t stick; that means that your food comes out (and off) the way you intended, you can use less fat, and clean-up is so much easier. And the benefit of a reusable non-stick sheet is that It’s greener than using single-use parchment paper. But not all non-stick sheets are created equal.

    For years we used the various silicone-based sheets, but found a number of problems with them: they can’t be used at very high heat, they shouldn’t be washed in the dishwasher, so they never really feel clean, and they retain odors. We wondered if there was a better alternative. We found that there is…

    COOKINA®, a small family company out of Montreal, set out to solve all those problems...and they did!

    They offer a great line of products that turn your grill, oven and baking pans into non-stick. But we are very excited to introduce our first ever (drum roll…!) Colbrook Kitchen Exclusive!

  15. Cordova 100% Kevlar® Cut Resistant Glove

    Cordova 100% Kevlar® Cut Resistant Glove

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $8.99

    Why It's Cool: Protects your hands when using a mandoline or slicer

    In a couple of the other write-ups, we talk about the fact that mandolines are sharp: really sharp.  That’s a good thing and a bad thing (well, not really bad, just, you know, a little intimidating).  As you slice or julienne on the mandoline, your tender hand gets ever-closer to the sharp blade, and I’ve never found a hand guard that isn’t awkward to use.  

    So, do you deprive yourself of the incredible convenience that a mandoline provides out of fear of the blade?  I don’t think so!  You just take really good, but easy precautions.  For me, that means a hand protector that moves with my hand, rather than with the food--in other words, a cut-resistant glove.

  16. Cuisipro Fat Separator

    Cuisipro Fat Separator

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $34.99

    Why It's Cool: Spacious area on top to catch solids; cooking liquid released from the bottom so easier to separate the fat from the good stuff

    The Search is over!

    Yes, we found the perfect fat separator. Now we realize that a fat separator may not be the holy grail, but this is a category of tool that we’ve looked at for a long time. Either to remove the fat from a perfect chicken soup, or to start to build a great gravy or sauce. The old fat separators had a spout that started at the bottom of the container so that it could pour the good juices from under the layer of fat, but there was always a layer of fat left in the spout that you had to deal with. Then there were a group of separators that had a plug in the spout, but that was either awkward, or didn’t work, or both. Then someone thought to take the juices from the bottom of the container under the fat, and the first generation was pretty good, but not perfect. But now ...perfect has arrived....

  17. Cuisipro Fish Tongs

    Cuisipro Fish Tongs

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $19.99

    Why It's Cool: Wide enough to hold a piece of fish securely

    Have you ever faced this situation?

    You’re trying to serve your fish course: whether it’s a pre-portioned “steak” of halibut or salmon, or a whole fillet that you’re trying to serve on a platter so each diner can choose their own portion. But your regular spatulas are all too small for the task, that special wide fish turner can’t lift the whole fish and it inevitably slides back into the poaching liquid or onto the floor, or your regular tongs will mangle your perfectly cooked fish before you can get it onto the platter. And if you don’t serve it promptly, then either it will overcook or get cold. And what if you have to turn your piece of fish over halfway through cooking it?  It’s usually a juggling act with two separate implements, and the outcome is dicey at best.

    If that’s a familiar set of problems, then you need these Silicone Fish Tongs from the clever folks at Cuisipro.

    Cuisipro Peelers

    Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_List
    $17.99

    Why It's Cool: Ergonomic handle and balanced weight, along with wicked sharp blades make peeling chores easy

    Every kitchen needs a peeler … or two. This most basic kitchen tool performs so many functions: from peeling potatoes, carrots or beets, to cleaning knobs or ginger or jerusalem artichokes, to making long slices of zucchini and other squashes for “vegetarian lasagna” … these are essential tools, for every kitchen. And whether you were taught as a youth to use the classic swivel peeler, or learned (later, in my case!) the efficiencies of the “Y” peeler, you know that you need these tools in your kitchen.

    But so many of the peelers we’ve used are simply lightweight, pot-metal junk … they quickly get dull and inefficient, and they rust or otherwise deteriorate, but you don’t discard them quickly enough because, after all, they’re just peelers ...right? ...well, WRONG!

    Why It's Cool: Great design, both visually and functionally, to deliver an easy effective grating solution

    We’ve discussed the advantages of Cuisipro Graters, and then they went on to expand the line! The utilitarian box grater has its place in the kitchen: grating quantities to be added later. But there are times when you want a specific tool for the grated material … or maybe you want to offer each guest the ability to control the  amount of grated product (I like a lot of cheese on my Caesar Salad, but Piper likes a little less!) … or maybe you will want to add a performing touch of grating at the table, like most waiters in Italian restaurants. Or maybe you just want a grater that is so cool to look at or feels so good to hold or works so well or is so easy to use, that it puts all other graters to shame!

    Why It's Cool: Stylish and functional way to prevent the spread of germs in shared food.

    We’re not germaphobes, but there seems to be a concern these days that germs spread all too easily. We now sneeze into our elbows and try to remember to sanitize our hands. So it probably makes sense to put something between bare fingers and shared food...so long as it’s done graciously and with style.
