mario batali Kitchenware Tools + Cookware
Product council teamed up with Celebrity Chef Mario Batali, Copco, and OXO co-founder John Farber, to create a distinct line of Italian kitchenware. The initial launch included 50 products of enameled cast-iron cookware, utensils, tools, cutlery, and serveware. The result; a perfect blend of classic heirloom quality with a contemporary flair. This line addressed the needs of kitchen novices as well as experienced chefs.
Newsweek magazine hailed this line as “everyday brilliance”. Crate and Barrel lauded the line as the best cast iron on the market. Utility and design patents were awarded.
Mario’s silicon basting brush was designed with concave strands that provide a means to scoop basting sauces. The silicon material withstands high heat temperatures up to 500 degrees. This product was awarded a utility patent.
The pizza cutter was designed with a stainless steel and polycarbonate cutting wheel with a Granton edge. The handle was ergonomically designed and weighted to help cut through thick crust and toppings.
Panini Grill + Press
The panini pan was designed with thick-walled cast iron and offered a generous grilling surface. The porcelain enamel exterior and black matte interior does not require seasoning nor will it react to acidic foods. The cast stainless steel knob features Mario's logo.
