Design and User focused
We have a focus on creating better quality tools for the modern cook, kitchen and new food trends and culture. A prime example is one of our first line of products that we re-designed from the ground up, the Steelcore cooking tool set. Your essential everyday nylon cooking tools, great for non-stick cookware, using less oil and encouraging a healthier lifestyle. We developed the Steelcore line as what we believe is the best nylon cooking tools on the market today. We focused on the basic issues with existing Nylon tools, some are thin and extremely flexible, easy to break or too thick and very cumbersome to use.
Our Steelcore line of Nylon tools, is the first to integrate a steel rod, inside the tool from the length of the handle to the bottom of the shaft. The resulting product is a rigid, zero flex design, while remaining thin and versatile to use. We can proudly say this one if the best nylon tools on the market. All quality, no gimmicks.
Moving forward, we plan to introduce more products to the market as soon as possible, carefully priced and of exceptional value. We look forward with helping you prepare delicious, fresh meals for yourselves and your family at home – one idea at a time!
