the story

OXO was built with the philosophy of universal design as their groundwork, which means their goal is to design products usable by the masses to improve everyday lives.

Each of their 1000+ products began as a journey to create simplicity and efficiency, without any compromise. It’s the Dieter Rams of home gadgetry.

Fun fact: Sam Farber chose the name “OXO” because whether it’s horizontal, vertical, upside down or backwards, it always reads “OXO.”

why we like it

The OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker is simple, easy to use, clean, stowable, and its price won’t keep you awake at night — you’ll be too jacked to sleep. At $50, you can become your own barista and reduce your carbon footprint.

Coffee not your jam? OXO Maker goes the distance for tea lovers too. You can strain your favorite tea leaves right into its 32 oz. carafe.

Plus, we got a kick out of the simplistic and eco-friendly vibes of this maker. With a quick seal of the glass carafe, you can save your morning survival nectar for up to 2 weeks.

the competition

Coffee carafe competition can be intense, confusing, and complicated. Quantity, cost, and quality come to mind. Other options like the Toddy Cold Brew System and the Yama Glass 6-8 Cup Cold Drip Maker would make great alternatives, but on further ends of the price scale and vary in size, material, and complexity.

So, before you get lost in the seedy underbelly of competitive reviews and java making haters, know that the OXO reviews are solid — for the price, size, and aesthetic. Not only are the reviews consistent (over 80% are 4 and 5 star reviews) they emphasize the unmatched quality and affordability of the OXO.
