About us

Progressive is your source for the widest range of functional, inventive and fun kitchen gadgets and tools. We put great ideas into practice.

We know our consumer demands a balance between the practical need to get food on the table and creative expression. More than a workspace, the contemporary kitchen is the heart of the home where we connect with family and friends. Progressive’s kitchen gadgets, kitchen accessories, microwave cookware and pepper, salt and spice mills are the modern essentials of the kitchen.

We approach our work with the passion and excitement of discover. Our in-house product development team spends hours in the kitchen coming up with ways to improve on a variety of traditional tasks and cooking tools. Like all good inventors, we start with imagination and then apply our thinking to the practical. Taking ideas from all kinds of places – including suggestions from our consumers about what they would like to have in their kitchens – we tinker, adjust and think outside the box until we come up with newer and better ways to make cooking more fun, interesting and efficient. This is the basis of the Progressive philosophy and it is at the heart of everything we do.

Progressive is your partner in the kitchen and our products are designed to make the time you spend in your kitchen fun and successful. Our durable and reliable product line empowers cooks and builds confidence in your ability to consistently create quick and healthy meals.
