Perhaps the worst feeling in the kitchen is approaching a task for which you don’t have the proper tools. Being asked to slice something without a proper knife, or being asked to follow a cake recipe without adequate measuring devices. I was once tasked with making popcorn on the stovetop though none of the lids fit any of the pans appropriate for popcorn. I banged around in the kitchen in frustration, irritating everyone.

This is why I love my kitchen tools. They perform. They are elegant. They enhance the experience of cooking. My flat edged wood spoons, for instance, are perfect for stirring anything in a pot. My offset spoons are lovely to behold and a pleasure to use (Mac and I were able to patent the design). Our meat mallet is featured first in this month’s Bon Appetit Gift Guide. I will never have a kitchen that doesn’t include our bamboo scrubber, which scrapes off baked-on cheese, eggs, scorched milk then rinses clean.

In keeping with the American holiday gift selling tradition of Cyber Monday, we are offering 35% off on all goods on shop.ruhlman.com (good through tomorrow). Just enter the promo code JINGLE and be sure to let us know any problems or glitches. (And HUGE apologies to folks outside the US; for reasons too tedious to get into, we’re unable to ship outside the country.)

Happy Holidays all!

    Thanks for this, Michael. I am sending them out as Christmas gifts! Specifically the bamboo pot scrubber and the quiche rings.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    I know you gave up on Hoppin John because of a bad year.
    I am making an alternate version in your honor. It’s a mixed bag of beans that has a few black eyed peas, leftover bourbon glazed smoked turkey and a few items from the comments on your previous post, like brown sugar, top with a poached egg and lemon zest.

    This is a great meal to cook on New Year’s Day, because your home on a day off, it’s a long, slow & enjoyable process, plus you have leftovers for the week.
    I know it’s suppose to bring good luck, and from the previous comments adding collard greens will bring weath – well that sure as f@$k never happened to me. I add them because they’re good if using a ham hock, not this year, I’m using left over turkey.
    I hope you’ll start making this dish again, random events happen, we can control a lot of things, but don’t take it out on black eyed peas, alter the recipe, I hope it brings us all good luck and fortune.
    Happy New Year and best wishes all!

    PS:to stay on topic, I love the wooden spoons and giant mallet, I use them all the time.
