Our 5 Favorite Dansk Kitchen & Table Essentials

Our 5 Favorite Dansk Kitchen & Table Essentials

If you’re unfamiliar with Dansk—the Danish design brand that was founded in 1954 and has been part of the Food52 family for a while now—we’ll bring you up to speed. From 1954 until the early 1980s, Dansk’s designs were created by the Danish sculptor and designer, Jens Quistgaardare. Pieces under the Dansk name are known for their iconic mid-century aesthetic and bright, bold color palettes. They’re multi-functional (the lid of the Købenstyle saucepan, for example, doubles as a trivet), durable enough to last decades, and are uniquely beautiful wares you’ll want to have out on display.

We might be a little biased, but here at Food52, we’re big fans of Dansk’s cookware, baking dishes, and serving accessories. So, we thought it was time to check in with our team to see which pieces from the Dansk lineup they find absolutely essential. From a small butter warmer to a wood salad set, here are five of our staff members’ favorites.

1. Dansk Købenstyle Butter Warmer, $48 $30+

“The butter warmer is the cutest piece of cookware I own, and its handy pour spout makes it the ideal vessel for serving melted butter, warm syrup, and other saucy toppings.” —Madison Trapkin, Associate Editor

Madison isn’t the only person on our staff who loves the butter warmer, either. Food Stylist Anna Billingskog raves about how it’s “the perfect small pot for so many things, not just butter.” As someone who doesn’t have a microwave, Anna has used it re-warm coffee and warm and froth milk.
