Hello, there.

We set out to create a gathering place for everyone who believes the kitchen is at the heart of the home, and food is the center of a life well-lived. We've cooked each other's recipes, game-planned holidays, and experienced the toast revelation that is the butter keeper.

There was just too much goodness not to make something out of it. That's why last year, we debuted Five Two, the first ever community-driven line for kitchen, home, and life. So far, nearly 50,000 of you have shared ideas and opinions on Five Two products—and there's so much more to do, together.

Here’s to making the things that make the room,

Amanda Hesser & Merrill Stubbs, Co-Founders

What began as a collection of (brilliant!) community opinions has become a movement. The Design Team gives feedback, tests prototypes, and helps us go even further to create the products you love. We’re 25,000 strong and counting…join us!

Recently, NYC-based Design Team members stopped by the Food52 offices to tell us all about their Five Two favorites:
"I use pot holders for their standard purpose, as trivets, and occasionally as weird kitchen hand puppets. I can't be the only person who admits that, can I?”
"The real estate in a kitchen cabinet is pretty high in-demand! So mixing bowls have to be storable and not take up a lot of space."
"A lot of towels don’t absorb moisture—so that aspect is really important to me. It’s gotta be absorbent. And I like a larger size rather than a tiny one."
"The ability to provide my input and opinion to get a product closest to what I'd design myself is a great opportunity. And seeing interested people with similar passions getting the opportunity to weigh in? That happens so rarely. Thank you, Five Two."

The Floor Is Open

We’ve got tons of great ideas in the works—but what should Five Two conquer next? Take our quiz and let us know which items you'd like to see.


Introducing Five Two Essential Cookware

You could say we started developing our Five Two cookware years ago. After countless hours in our kitchens—yearning for stock pots with pour spouts and smooth, rivet-free interiors—we took all those “wouldn’t it be nice...” moments and made them real.

Our cookware is the result of decades of kitchen know-how, feedback from thousands of members of our community of home cooks, and countless rounds of testing to get it all right (see: stay-cool, non-slip handles and built-in strainers). And because we know you need options, we rounded out our essential set with both nonstick and stainless styles. They’re true workhorses that cover all your bases in a single, cohesive—and absolutely beautiful!—design.

A Revolutionary Design

Our cookware collection changes the game—and we couldn’t have done it without insight from thousands of community members who weighed in.

This cookware design is so clearly born out of the Food52 community—the pouring spouts, the straining lids, the interior measurements—all details that matter to home cooks everywhere. Together, we made cookware that's sturdy and thoughtful, with a design that's destined to be a collector's item.
Amanda Hesser, Co-Founder & CEO (thrilled with our collection that’ll change the way you cook…forever).
