Every year, kitchen and houseware fans and professionals get together for the International Housewares Show in Chicago. It’s a massive trade show the size of (what seems to me) 18 football fields with every single kitchen and home appliance you can imagine. Think of it as the Comic-Con of kitchenware, and yes, I’ve been tempted to dress up as a Kitchen Aid Mixer!
What stands out most to me are the ingenious and fascinating kitchen gadgets I come across throughout the four-day ordeal. They’re utensils and cooking accessories that will inspire you to build new drawers in your kitchen just so you can store it and rarely use them (or so you think!).
Check out some of our favorites from this year's show including a self-leveling spoon, un-spillable mug, and more.
