We started Material to peel away the excess.
First things first: We’re food lovers, not professional chefs.
Our cooking doesn’t happen in Michelin-star kitchens with endless space and limitless gadgetry. It happens at home, after work, around our kids, using real-life counter space and in the face of real-life “my friends will be here any minute!” challenges.
But none of the kitchenware we’ve used checked all the right boxes. Shopping through hundreds of items at big-name retail stores is overwhelming and scanning online reviews feels impersonal. Plus, most of the good-looking stuff is super expensive, and most of the affordable stuff isn’t so good-looking.
Eunice and Dave, Co-founders
So we decided to create a new category of tasteful kitchenware, designed and curated for modern home cooks like us.
Our products combine sleek industrial style with innovative features and world class materials to create a healthy balance of form and function.
Time and counter space are precious. We’ve cut through the clutter with tools that can take the heat and make your cooking more seamless.
Our direct-to-consumer model allows us to offer world class products that will last a lifetime (guaranteed), for 40-50% less than high-end, premium brands.
Take care of your kitchen and it will take care of you.
Whether you’re a professional chef or a first-time home cook, whether you’re making three fried eggs or a three course meal, whether you have a custom wine fridge or a hand-me-down mini fridge—kitchens are a sacred source of pride in our homes. They’re the living rooms that have connected people for thousands of years, and we hope to make our subtle mark on that rich history by helping people create more space for the meaningful moments our kitchens deserve.
