Misen founder, Omar Rada, was working at Fresh Direct and found it hard not to get caught up in the culture that loved cooking and food. As a new chef, he quickly realized that good, quality cookware truly made a difference in his food.
“My previous knife had been pretty mediocre, so a quality one was a revelation. It cut food so easily and allowed me to be more versatile and creative in the kitchen. And it was so much fun to use.”
The idea for Misen actually started with a $300 pan given to Omar as a gift. He let a friend borrow it. His friend lost the pan and the sticker shock nearly killed him when he tried to replace it. After some research, he realized most high-end cooking tools came with a serious markup, and shouldn't actually cost as much as they do.
So Misen was born. With a mission and passion to create premium cooking essentials for an honest and affordable price.
