Useful helpers in the kitchen
Advice and tricks for everyday work in the kitchen. How to properly use our kitchen products
Lots of important knowledge about the right tools for your household has been lost on our path into an industrial and throwaway society. There are many old and new ideas in particular for the kitchen that make everyday work a little easier.
Brushing instead of washing
Mushrooms not only lose their taste when you clean them in water, but also their valuable ingredients as well. It is better to remove any sand or soil residues with a brush.
To remove the coarse dirt from mushrooms while still conserving them, the reverse side of our folding knife for mushrooms has sharp bristles for this purpose.
The nutritious part is under the skin
Some types of fruit should not be peeled but rather eaten with the skin because important vitamins lie directly under the peel. Before enjoying these, however, the fruit must be cleaned thoroughly. For this we recommend our fruit brush.
Durable kitchen tools for perfect handling
Olive wood is special not only because of its extraordinarily beautiful grain – it is also extremely hard due to the slow growth of the olive tree. Its high oil content makes it resistant to moisture, easy to grip, and smooth. Our olive wood products are minimally processed. That means they are only waxed or oiled. Please do not put these natural wood items into the dishwasher or treat with scratchy pads or sponges; rather, rinse them off and dry after use. Rub a little olive or sunflower oil into the wood occasionally to preserve its colour and natural long life.
Copper makes sensitive surfaces shine!
It has almost been forgotten, the scratch-free cleansing power of copper! Fine copper strands lift even the most stubborn dirt gently – because copper is a soft metal which doesn’t scratch when wet. Our copper products clean pots, pans, sinks, stoves, Ceran cooktops, glass, stainless steel, and much more. They are wonderfully suited to gently and thoroughly remove rust deposits from flatware. They will leave no scratches on enamel or Ceran surfaces and will bring your sink to a high gloss. Do not use on Teflon or other sensitive surfaces, and always use with plenty of water.
For the optimal coffee!
The espresso machine brush cleans coffee grounds quickly and without water from the strainer and the machine. Light or dark coloured firm natural bristles are fixed in an aluminum clamp and the handle is made of oiled beech, or thermowood, and has a leather hanging strap.

How can I get that clean?

Potatoes simply taste best when hot
This is our two-part set made of beechwood for peeling hot potatoes. It consists of a potato pick, so that you don’t burn your fingers on the hot potatoes, and a peeling knife. The tines and blade are made of rust-free stainless steel. The potato pick has many advantages over a simple fork: Its tines are thinner, so that the potatoes do not break apart, and they are arranged in a triangle shape, which gives you more grip on the potato.
Definitely the most environmentally responsible way to remove calcium:
Place Kessy in any container used to heat water. The stainless steel mesh will soon become visibly white, as the calcium contained in the water is absorbed exclusively by Kessy. Then just tap the Kessy clean after it’s dry, and it’s ready to be used again. Heating elements and the bottoms of your pots stay free of calcium without the use of harmful chemicals.
