Quality, function & value are the best ingredients. Brands that cook. Since 1957. The essentials line of kitchen tools is built to the exacting specifications of the world’s best culinary shops combining the ideal balance of quality, function and value. These hard-working tools should be at the core of any well-equipped kitchen. Our stainless steel products are the perfect weight and gauge and are made of 18/18 high quality rust proof steel, insuring that the tools will last and perform beautifully for years to come. A portion of the proceeds for every essentials item sold goes to C-CAP Careers through Culinary Arts Program. A national nonprofit, C-CAP manages the largest independent high school culinary scholarship program in the U.S., preparing under served high school students for college as well as careers in both the restaurant and hospitality industries.
