At its heart, Food52 is a community of cooks (and eaters!)—all of us who work here included. We understand the everyday triumphs, ordinary frustrations, and daily needs of the kitchen. How many times have we cursed our potholders for not being sturdy enough to withstand the heat of our Dutch ovens? Or wished for a pan with a built-in strainer so we weren’t constantly searching for ours just as the pasta timer dinged?
None of our Five Two products would exist in their current (glorious!) form without specific tips from you. Today, on our annual holiday of the line’s launch, we’re celebrating the people behind this uniquely community-powered collection of products. Five Two was born of our desire to make all of us happier at home—what better way to ensure that products actually solve problems and grant silent wishes than to ask the people who will be using them?
Practical advice and input from our Food52ers is woven into the details of every product.
