Back in March when Food52 released a one-off vintage Dansk drop, some of the most coveted items were the pitchers in cool teal, chili red, and even a rare kumquat. There were only five total, which means they sold out in a snap. But there’s good news for all those of you that didn’t get your hands on one. An archival reissue of the iconic pitcher is now available—and there are plenty to go around!

The Købenstyle pitcher, which was first unveiled in 1955, is often one of the first vintage Dansk pieces people reach for and get excited about because it is so iconically Dansk. “It's still sought-after in vintage shops and online, from eBay to 1stDibs, and when the Los Angeles County Museum of Art announced its upcoming show, Scandinavian Design and the United States, the Købenstyle pitcher was front and center,” says Christine Muhlke, Food52’s Dansk archivist.

An Ode to a New Icon: The Studio Desk Lamp

Late last year Schoolhouse, the lighting and home goods company based in Portland, became part of the Food52 family. As Schoolhouse joins Food52’s community of brands, our editorial team has been doing a deep (and delightful!) dive into Schoolhouse’s iconic lighting collection.

Founded in 2003, Schoolhouse was born when Portland native Brian Faherty decided to restore a stash of vintage cast-iron molds for glass light shades—the kind you once found in every schoolhouse in America (hence, the company’s name). At the time, Faherty worked buying, renovating, and selling old houses, and he had noticed there was a dearth of appealing glass fixtures. Research led him to an upstate New York glass factory that ended up selling him the molds. Faherty restored the molds and started manufacturing new lights under the brand name Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.

15 Stylish Menorahs to Celebrate Hanukkah

Hanukkah, or the Festival of Lights, is observed by lighting the menorah for the eight nights during the holiday. And by feasting and giving presents, of course, but that's hardly the point: The point is the light. And you can't have the light without the menorah.

Luckily, the cheesy Judaica of our youth now has a modern alternative. These menorahs are sophisticated, creative, and pretty enough that you'll want to use them as candelabras all year long—or at least they'll give you something to look forward to every year (in addition to presents).

This season, we're taking our most treasured cookware from the kitchen to the dinner table, with help from our friends at Le Creuset. Handcrafted in France since 1925, Le Creuset's enameled cast-iron pieces—from their timeless Dutch Ovens to their trusty Signature Skillets—come in a slew of bright, bold colors and are durable enough to last a lifetime (or two).


If there's one thing that's almost universally true of living in New York City, it's this: Finding an apartment with an open, spacious kitchen is like finding a chocolate croissant at your favorite bakery after the morning rush (extremely unlikely, if not impossible). After six years and three rentals, I've still yet to turn up anything with more than a closed-off, galley-style kitchen—at least within my budget, anyway.

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.

The New Five Two Bench Scraper Will Be Your Kitchen Superhero

When it comes to the kitchen, there are myriad tools I want, but only a handful I need, and near the top of my list is a bench scraper. The flat rectangular tool (you can find some made of flexible plastic, others of sturdy metal) is sort of a cross between a chef's knife and a spatula, and it will become your kitchen superhero in no time.

And before you say but I’m not a big baker, I don’t need this!, know that while you can certainly use a bench scraper for trimming laminated pastry and frosting layer cakes, I still think one of the best reasons to keep such a tool around is to seamlessly transfer chopped vegetables from the cutting board to a sizzling skillet (more on that later). Plus, I bet you’ve made a tray of brownies lately that would have benefited from evenly sliced squares? Or wanted to scrape up stubborn bits of food stuck to your kitchen counter? A bench scraper, specifically a metal one, can help.

Some call it a blessing, others call it a curse, but I am the type of person who simply cannot relax unless my house is totally spotless.

Finger-smudged glass gives me angst, an unmade bed makes me shudder, and the thought of crumbs (or worse, hair) lodged into the carpet—well, that's just unthinkable.

Meet the Cookware That Will Change the Way You Cook Forever

Over the years we’ve fallen in love with countless pots and pans, for one reason or another. Maybe they have the nicest heft, or the lightest weight, or maybe they sear just right. But we’ve never landed on a set that has it all.
