The Information on Cooktops and Cookware (IOCC) blog is written and maintained by an independent consumer product research group in Canada. The IOCC reviews, compares, and publishes information on the latest cooktops and cookwares with a goal of helping the consumer make the right choice.

The IOCC is a not-for-profit initiative. We accept no advertising and pay for all the products we test. By not accepting free samples of the product we test, we ensure accuracy and fairness in our reviews for the consumer. We identify products to test based on consumer trends. The IOCC receives regular feedback from readers on what’s important to themĀ  and we work to ensure that information is provided to them in a timely manner.

All the information we provide online is free to access. You may order a monthly copy of our publication in magazine form by subscribing to us for a fee. Subscriptions may be cancelled at any time. The team behind IOCC comprises of skilled professionals in a range of areas including science, engineering, and nutrition. These professionals combined have decades of experience in working with kitchen products.

Although there are plenty of websites to find information on almost any product, we found that there was a lack of information regarding specialty kitchen products and cookware. Information on sous vide machines, convection ovens, bread machines, copper cookware, slow cookers, pressure cookers, and the different cookware sets available today are hard to come by. The IOCC provides professional and detailed information on every imaginable kitchen tool.

If there is something that we haven’t yet covered, we insist that you provide us with feedback on what is important to you. We believe in the value and quality of information that we provide our readers, so your feedback is important to us.

This year, there will be many exciting kitchen tools that we will review. Some of them are making a comeback with new innovations and others are gaining more traction because of certain trends in cuisine. We hope you will enjoy our honest, comprehensive, and interesting guides.

Thanks for reading,
