Tub of tools and tools
 
At first sight, it’s a stylish cylinder in sandblasted aluminium with some black matted accents. The typical tool for storing kitchen utensils. But this tool from BergHOFF has a clever extra. A closer look reveals two built-in trays that serve as a rest for the tools when preparing a meal. Hygienic and always a clean countertop.
 
Heusden-Zolder, February 2010 –  The tub of tools is newest addition to the award-wining Neo line. The Neo cooking pots, espresso cups and saucers, and the knife block were awarded numerous international design prizes. This cylindrical tub is made from anodised aluminium with a black matted polypropylene interior and base. The stylish tool is an addition to any kitchen counter and takes up little space holding several utensils. But this tool has a bonus: the base holds two attached and built-in trays. Simply give them a push and they cleverly revolve from under the cylinder to serve as spoon rests. When done cooking, the utensils go back into their tub and the spoon rests turn in their base taking up no extra space.
 
4 commonly used tools
But what’s a tub of tools without its tools?
That’s why BergHOFF added for 4 commonly used tools to the Neo line. There’s a slotted turner, a skimmer, a palette knife and a slotted omelette turner. All with the same design features as the tub: anodised aluminium for the handles and black matted nylon for the rest. The nylon makes these tools very much suited for use on non-stick cookware. Thanks to a handy rim the tools can be fixed at the cookware’s edge so they don’t slide into the food.
 
Tools and holder are separately available.
