With locations in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and near the Flatiron Building in Manhattan, Whisk has become one of our favorite cookware stores around — be it for a buying last minute package of cheesecloth or splurging on a Burr coffee grinder. The product buyers have three things in mind when selecting products: function, quality and a great price point. And as promised, the lion’s share of the items for sale fall under $50. This is why we asked manager and head buyer Alejandra Remijio to suggest some of her favorite items this holiday season, which we’ve broken into three scenarios: Good coffee; soup and sandwich; and cocktail hour. Scroll to the bottom for details on each product. Photos by Gabi Porter.

From Hario to Chemex, home coffee brewing gear is serious business.  

The wintry soup and sandwich combo can be contructed in style. 

Upgrading your friend’s home bar can be done with three simple products. Or, perhaps, ten.
