  For months and months people have been asking when the the Badass Perforated (aka Egg) Spoon will be back in stock. IT’S BACK. (Details here.) Here’s the original story of how it came to be (all photos by Donna Turner Ruhlman). A couple years ago, nosing around in McGee’s On Food and Cooking, I came across his suggestion that one could make neater poached eggs by getting rid of the liquidy, flyaway whites before poaching. And it works! (There’s really no point in adding acid to the water.) Regrettably, I left my good perforated spoon at a Macy’s demo and was left a generic slotted spoon with a shallow bowl and the egg always wanted to jump out. So when my friend Mac suggested we make some kitchen tools, a great perforated spoon that could Read On »

UPDATE Tuesday, 12/4/13: We are working to fulfill orders placed before 12 a.m. beyond the eastern time zone. Thanks for the enthusiastic embrace cyber Monday. So grateful for everyone’s excitement. Fifty percent off all Dalton-Ruhlman cooking tools for today only: use the code word gobble at checkout.

They’ve gotten kudos from chefs such as David Kinch and Jonathon Sawyer to Martha herself (she actually placed an order through my site). We haven’t advertised these things, we haven’t done any merchandising, because, well, that work gives me a headache, just not my thing, and there’s too much fun stuff to do, like actually making things. That’s what I love. To promote these tools, which I Read On »

When my old friend from high school, Mac Dalton, and I launched a small line of products in December 2010, I called it an experiment. The experiment worked, but not perfectly. The products, while of superlative quality, were nonetheless more expensive than we wanted them to be. I’m thrilled to announce that we’ve now cleared a threshold that has allowed us to restock our warehouse in enough quantity to lower the prices to what we’ve always wanted them to be. This means, for instance, that our beloved Badass Perforated (aka Egg) Spoon, which had been $33, is now $19.95. The big bundle of spoons and paddles (above), once $89 is now $59.95. We hope you’ll have a look at the new catalog, tell friends via Facebook, let me know on Twitter, or, better still, leave subtle hints Read On »
