Known for its innovative knifeware range, Kai has been in the cutlery business for more than a century. Founded in Japan in 1908 as Endo Manufacturing, the company opened its American outpost—Kai USA—in 1977, during its huge expansion into the European, Asian, and North American markets. Today, the ever-growing Kai empire comprises four esteemed brands—Kershaw, Shun, ZT, and Tan Ren—each of which has garnered awards for its military-grade tools and chef-quality knives. Tan Ren is especially notable, featuring blades forged from Daido 1K6 Japanese steel and resin-enforced hardwood handles.
This selection is full of casual, cool kitchen basics, from baking dishes to tableware. Simple elegance defines the lot: There’s an unfussy feel to Duralex’s glass bowls and tumblers, and a crispness to Emile Henry’s oval dishes and roasting pans, thanks to their preppy, two-tone palettes.
Get inspired in the kitchen again: We’ve got everything you need in this sale — from food-prep tools to stylish accents — that’ll bring out your inner chef, and get you to try that recipe you’ve been putting off.
From the moment we wake up, we look forward to lunch. If you’re the same, you’ll love elevating your midday meal with Zojirushi’s portable lunch sets; with vacuum-sealed containers and microwaveable bowls, they’ll eliminate sad brown bags from your life. We also love Monbento's bento boxes and chopsticks, which are both charming and practical. As for your daily sandwich: stash it in one of Lekue’s colorful holders (there’s even a “Baguette Buddy”). And munchies keep perfectly in Planet Zak!’s air-tight containers and double-wall storage vessels. In this sale we’re selling some delectable treats too, from olive-oil-roasted almonds to flourless brownies. Is it lunchtime yet?
