Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Grinder
Most pepper mills (this model also grinds spices) take forever to grind just one tablespoon. This new design—which we developed with Kuhn Rikon—is easy to use and produces all the spice you can use quickly and easily. Its innovative back-and-forth ratchet action is easier than a twist-style mill, especially for those with hand issues. The precision ceramic grinder is effective and durable, and the front-loading hopper is far easier than top-loading grinders, where half the spices inevitably spill during filling. Perhaps our favorite feature is the removable bottom container, which makes it easy to measure and transport spices to a stovetop pot or mixing bowl.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Wok Spatula
Also known as a “wok shovel,” this broad, short spatula perfectly fits the radius of our wok and is an essential tool for the quick movements of stir frying and sautéing. It’ll also work well with most any stainless or cast-iron skillet, much less looks tidy enough for tableside serving.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Straight Pocket Peeler
The uniquely designed, compact design of this razor-sharp peeler gives you greater control and agility. It’ll make quick work of prepping most any vegetable and is perfect for cutting ribbons of carrots or curls of Parmesan or chocolate.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Spice Jar Set of 4
We strongly encourage grinding whole spices fresh for your recipes. Sure, it’s an extra step, but the flavor boost is transformative. That’s why we designed a Ratchet Grinder with Kuhn Rikon and these accompanying stacking spice jars, which snap onto the bottom of the spice mill for less mess and easy storage. These 3-tablespoon containers are just the right size for holding a small amount of spice without letting it go stale. We also love the containers for transporting small amounts of spices and seasonings in our lunch or picnic containers. A desk lunch will never be boring again.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Pop-Up Steamer Basket and Colander
Our pop-up colander is great for draining pasta or rinsing produce, and it will take up less space than traditional colanders when collapsed—no more wasted cupboard space. Made from heat-safe silicone, it functions double-duty as a steamer basket and easily nestles into larger sauce pots. For a fun Milk Street-inspired design element, we partnered with Kuhn Rikon to create the subtle bowtie design, which extends all the way up the sides of the colander and allows for quicker draining.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Precision Tongs
We consider a set of tongs indispensable in the kitchen and collaborated with Kuhn Rikon on what we consider to be the perfect set. At 12 inches long, they are just the right length for both outdoor and indoor cooking (tongs designed for just BBQ are usually awkwardly long for anything but grilling). The scalloped, concave tips provide a firm yet gentle grip on most any food—they won’t tear delicate goods the way more aggressive serrations can (like most tongs on the market). We use them for everything from sautéing and grilling to baking, stirring pasta and even juicing--closed tight, the tips form a terrific citrus reamer. Consider them a heat-proof extension of your hands.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Julienne Pocket Peeler
Our Julienne Pocket Peeler makes it easy to create uniform thin strips. The compact design gives you greater control and agility while peeling and is easy to store. We frequently use this tool to shred vegetables for salads and slaws.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Spider Skimmer
The fine-wired basket of this skimmer is ideal for fishing foods out of hot oil, bubbling broth and boiling water. We also like using it for stirring short or chunky pasta shapes.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Quick Turn Spatula
This is our version of one of our favorite kitchen tools, the fish spatula. Flexible and thin, it’s a do-it-all tool for sautéing, grilling, baking—even stirring pasta. The thin, angled edge can work its way underneath the most stuck-on or delicate foods.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Serrated Pocket Peeler
Our Serrated Pocket Peeler will easily help you remove smooth or fuzzy skins from tomatoes, peaches and more that would usually require blanching to loosen the skins. We think it’s a necessary tool for making fresh tomato sauces in which the thick skins would otherwise mar a silky texture or a peach cobbler where all we want are chunks of perfectly tender peach.
Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Everything Ladle
A solid ladle is essential for both cooking and serving soups, stews and sauces. This 6-ounce stainless steel ladle has a perfectly angled handle and a deep, well-proportioned bowl, which makes for accurate, spill-proof pouring.

Christopher Kimball for Kuhn Rikon Slotted Spoon
Slotted spoons are valuable for straining small items and all sorts of stirring—in fact, we use slotted spoons more often than solid spoons for our cooking. Our smartly designed version is sturdy stainless steel and will easily last a lifetime. The 14-inch long, stay-cool handle is suitable for the deepest pot.
Christopher Kimball by Regal Ware 8-inch Premium Stainless Steel Skillet
Our five-ply cookware has three layers of aluminum sandwiched between two layers of nonreactive stainless steel. The aluminum core heats evenly and retains that heat well, eliminating hot spots, while the magnetic stainless steel exterior makes this premium cookware ideal for any cooking surface, including induction cooktops. The skillet's heavy-duty construction also ensures that it won't warp over time, unlike thin metal pans that become raised in the center. And the rounded, oven-safe handle feels comfortable and well-balanced in the hand, even when handling a full pan of food; plus, the handle's hollow core is lightweight and stays cool during stovetop cooking. We use an 8-inch skillet for a wide range of kitchen tasks from toasting nuts and spices, to breakfast duty, to omelets, to smaller jobs such as steak for one.
