The International Home and Housewares Show has grown to be one of my favorite times of the year. It is the place where buyers from retailers all over the world come to find new products to stock on their shelves. From the small neighborhood boutique and gift store to the large department store, everyone in the housewares industry is at the Housewares Show.

Walking the floor at the Housewares Show can be very overwhelming. I mean, how many kinds of spatulas can there possibly be out in the marketplace?? You will find them all here! I have compiled some of the products that I think are useful in the everyday kitchen, tools that can be used in helping you to make Great Everyday Meals.

Watch my interviews from the 2013 International Housewares Show:
