It’s no secret that we at Food52 are obsessed with knowing the questions that our community members are asking, the expert tips they’re sharing, and the goods they’re buying. After all, our community is the backbone of who we are—we’re constantly inspired by and thinking of y’all.
One thing we really love to see is what you’re wishing for on Food52. That’s right, the recipes you’re saving and the products you’re favoriting and adding to collections—aka wish lists. For anyone who doesn’t know, once you create a Food52 profile, you’re able to save recipes, articles, and Shop products to a collection. This creates a one-stop spot on your personal page for, say, the cocktails you love, or the glasses you would like to add to your home bar.
Now that we’re settled into the second half of the year (how time has flown by this quickly, we’re not entirely sure), we thought it was the perfect moment to take a closer look at the goods our community members have added to their wish lists from January until now. Keep reading for the top five things our community covets.
5. Food52 x Dansk Købenstyle Saucepan,
Coming in at number five is this best-selling saucepan from Dansk. Inspired by the iconic mid-century aesthetic of Danish sculptor Jens Quistgaard, this colorful, enameled carbon-steel saucepan is a beloved cookware piece. It comes in one- and two-quart sizes, 11 colors, and can go right from the stovetop to the table thanks to its lid that doubles as a trivet.
4. Neat Method Grid Storage Basket, $34+
Next we have this handy storage basket to help with organizing your pantry shelves, bathroom cabinets, or closet. Each one comes with a removable acacia-wood insert to keep smaller items from falling out, along with foam pads for the bottom to protect the surfaces you put them on. The baskets are available in four sizes (Small, Medium, Large, and Square) and four colors (Spruce Green, Black, Brass, and Bone).
3. Oven-Safe Glass Ramekins (Set of 6), $32+
It seems many of our community members might have crème brûlée on the brain. And lucky for them, these feather-light, flame-proof, thermal shock–resistant ramekins are perfect for just that. They’re built to withstand temps from -40°F to 660°F, so they can easily travel from the freezer to the oven. Plus, they’re clear as crystal—even after lots of trips through the dishwasher—so they’ll shine on the table, too.
This layered fruit bowl is made from sturdy, scratch-resistant clay, features a temperature-controlling cork top for fruit, and has small holes that offer air circulation without letting light into the bottom bowl; perfect for root vegetables. No wonder it’s a favorite!
The number one, most wished-for and sought-after kitchen good among our community members is:
Any home cook, baker, or chef is only as good as their tools. So, of course, this ovenware set is number one. These aren’t your average stainless-steel baking sheets. Far from it, in fact. They’re made of triple-bonded 18/10 stainless steel and have an aluminum core for ultra-fast-and-even heating. Each piece has also been engineered and tested to resist warping, making them able to last a lifetime (there’s a lifetime warranty too, just in case anything happens). Some other details to love: The sheets feature wide, curved handles to give you a firm hold during oven transfers, are broiler- and oven-safe to 600°F, and are dishwasher-safe for quick cleanup.
