Better Tools for Better Cooking

Why are Quality Kitchen Tools so Expensive?
Short answer: They don’t have to be.

The right tool makes any job easier. That’s especially true in the kitchen. The problem is, people have to choose between cheap, low-quality kitchen tools and overpriced “premium” brands.

Neither of these seemed like a good option, so we decided to make something better.

By focusing on quality materials and smart features that add value, we're able to offer incredible kitchen tools at honest prices.

What Makes Misen Kitchen Tools Great?

  • Quality Materials

    We carefully research and select premium materials for optimal performance.

  • Thoughtful Design

    We (lovingly) obsess over every aspect of each tool we make. The millimeters matter.

  • Honest Prices

    No retail mark-ups = better tools, at better prices.

We Test. And Test. And Test.
And Then We Test Some More.

Each of our products is the result of months of product development. It’s a quest to nail down features and materials that will enhance your cooking experience. Designers, engineers, professional chefs and beginning home cooks all have a hand in assessing each prototype, allowing us to chisel away what isn’t needed, and keep the stuff that makes a difference. The result is cookware that delivers “premium” results, at an affordable price.

It’s Pronounced “Mee-Zen”
An ode to ‘mise en place’

Our name comes from ‘mise en place’ — an important culinary term that means “to put in place.” Chefs practice ‘mise’ everyday when they set up their workstations before service.

Practicing ‘mise’ means being properly prepared, with the right ingredients and tools you need to cook better.

Better cooking through proper preparation with quality tools.

Our Story

It Started With An Onion, and No Tears

Cutting a red onion with a Misen 8 inch Chef Knife.

At a certain point in our cooking journey, we realized our crappy cookware was holding us back. Can you cook with a dull knife and flimsy pans? Sure, but they’ll work against you. It wasn’t until we finally got our hands on a great knife and diced an onion within seconds without crying, that we had our epiphany — great tools make the job easier, and that’s especially true in the kitchen. 

The realization that we needed better cookware was one thing. Actually buying it was a whole different story.

Frustrating was an understatement. From the sticker shock of seeing a single pan cost $200 to the confusing buying experience filled with technical jargon that seemed almost meaningless. Out of this experience — Misen was born.

You shouldn't have to choose between cheap, low-quality kitchen tools and overpriced “premium” brands.

We hated those options, so we decided to do something better.

We make premium cooking tools that are exactly what you’d want, for a price less than you’d expect.
