When it comes to having kitchen items that are both exceptionally functional *and* ridiculously good looking, Food52 blows me away every time. Everything I'd tried from their line Five Two is so wonderful it brings a tear to my eye, and the rest of their curated shopping collection is just...perfection.
Everything is great, but here are a few items that reviewers and I agree especially rock:
1.A set of compostable sponge cloths for cleaning anything and everything. These sponge/towel crossovers can hold 16 times their weight in water, dry quickly, can be run through the dishwasher or washing machine, AND are made from compostable plant fibers.
2.A super handy apron that features built-in potholders, a conversion chart, three large pockets, and an adjustable neck strap. I have this apron and have no notes — it's perfection.
3.A multi-function silicone pot insert for straining, steaming, or using as a trivet or splatter screen. And considering it's collapsible, get ready to reunite with all the storage space your old colander used to inhabit.
5.A set of three measuring beakers with lids that are perfect for measuring, storing, and pouring everything from soups to batters to sauces. They're also heat-safe up to 400 degrees in the oven or microwave, as well as dishwasher-safe.
6.A vacuum sealing system for marinating and keeping anything in your kitchen nice and fresh. This kit comes with both vacuum bags and glass containers so you can seal to your heart's content.
7.A set of multi-purpose silicone lids that are *seriously* airtight. They're fantastic for covering bowls, leftovers, and even pots without lids since they're heat-safe! Look, I can pick up a heavy bowl of cookie dough with just the handle from this light lid!
8.A microplane and spice grater set, because lemon zest and fresh ginger belong in every dish, that's the law. You'll be surprised how much you reach for these once you realize how much freshly grated spices and can improve a dish.
9.An aluminum baking sheet whose grid pattern invites better airflow while in the oven and ensures crispier edges. And if you've never had the simple pleasure of having an enormous baking pan, I wholly suggest you get the "Big Sheet."
10.A bamboo cutting board with an extra deep juice groove so your counter tops don't get sticky and messy, even while carving a watermelon. It also features a unique phone slot so you can have the recipe you're following at attention.
11.A set of silicone oven mitts or potholders that give you heat protection up to 650 degrees! The silicone also helps keep things more grippy and they even have a magnet hidden inside so you can stick them directly to your oven.
12.A butter bell so you can keep soft butter fresh for up to 30 days using one incredible technology: water. Just place some water in the bottom of the vessel, plop the butter bell on top, and the water makes a *perfect* seal to keep that nectar of the dairy gods fresh.
13.A brew bottle to make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee (including cold brew!) right in the vessel you'll drink it in.
14.A baking board with handy measurements for ensuring all of your doughs are rolled and cut just so. And the reverse side is a chic matte black cutting board, so it's way more than just a unitasker.
15.A fruit and veggie travel cup that lets you wash your produce and put it right in a to-go container without waiting for it to dry or accepting the fact that it'll be soggy and wet. It even comes with a cute little fork that tucks right into the cup as well!
16.Three nesting ceramic bowls with spouts so pouring batter (or anything!) is easy peasy. They're also dishwasher-safe and are so gorgeous they're basically decor.
17.Some Bee's Wrap for anyone looking to replace plastic wrap for good. The wax wraps seal with just a little heat from your hands and they come in *so* many sizes. I have these and adore them, especially the "sandwich" wraps with string and button closure, which I usually use to tightly seal cheese!
18.A Porter Bowl that lets you store leftovers and eat lunch in style with a sturdy ceramic or plastic bowl, lid, and tight strap to keep everything contained. I have a ceramic Porter Bowl and it's ALWAYS in use. Love it.
19.An airtight ceramic canister to keep your coffee beans as fresh as possible. The opaque sides keep its contents out of the sun and the press-down vacuum seal ensures everything is protected, no matter how much or little.
21.A wide rolling pin with raised ends that ensure whatever you're rolling is nice and uniform. It also has a wax finish that helps keep dough from sticking to the wood!
22.A citrus juicer to get every last drop of the good stuff out of your fruit. Perfect for cocktails, baking, and so much more, you'll never buy that little plastic bottle of lemon juice from the grocery store again.
