Ghetto Gastro, a Bronx-based chef collective, and Crux cookware announced a new collaboration of small kitchen appliances decked out in matte black. The collection, called CRUXGG, will be available exclusively at Williams Sonoma, and I want it all.
Ghetto Gastro, whose members include Jon Gray, Lester Walker and Pierre Serrão, focuses on "the intersection of food, design and art," according to Gray, who hosted a TED Talk on the group's mission. The supergroup uses food to spark conversations on social justice and the inequities the Black community faces in their daily lives.
The collection includes the Sata toaster ($70), the Drip coffee maker ($100), the Trnr waffle maker ($150), the Bred bread maker ($170), the Nefi toaster oven ($250), the King blender ($300) and the Musa air fryer and pressure cooker ($300).
"We created CRUXGG to tell a story through our shared visions of style and purpose, one that lifts up communities and allows us to connect through food," Gray said in a press release.
Throughout October, all sales from the collection will go towards ACLU’s Know Your Rights Camp, which advocates for positive social change in Black and Brown communities.
The full collection drops on September 29, but you can pre-order the rotating double waffler maker right now.
