The Thermocouple Thermometer

We designed the OXO Thermocouple Thermometer to deliver a best in class experience for quickly and accurately reading temperatures while cooking. The thermocouple probe easily rotates out from its safe storage position using the center dial which powers up the backlit screen. Because of the precise thermocouple tip, you don’t have to insert the probe very deep to get a quick and accurate reading. The fully rotating probe and screen mean you can use it at any angle, whether you’re right- or left-handed.

The Salad Spinner

Pensa redesigned & engineered OXO’s iconic salad spinner. We designed a more efficient and stable form with a flat top for stacking, a new brake that stops on a dime; and a slimmer, quieter, more rigid mechanism. We also created a simpler disassembly for cleaning.

The Mini Beakers

The OXO Mini Beakers redefine how liquids are measured in the kitchen. The beaker design allows for easy pouring, measuring, and stacking. The flat bases give them the ability to stand up, so that liquids don’t spill when they are pre-measured. Measuring spoons just don’t stack up.
