    International Coffee Day has been celebrated since 2015. With approx. 162 litres per year, coffee is by far Germany´s most popular drink, before water and beer, and, after water, the most frequently consumed drink worldwide. It even plays a prominent role in terms of economics as the 2nd-most traded raw material after crude oil. This importance will be taken into account on 1st October with a worldwide campaign day.

    Distinguished!

    German Design Award 2018 goes to coffee grinder MRS. BEAN  and chilli cutter PEPE.

    Not one but two products have been distinguished with the „German Design Award 2018“.

    The coffee grinder MRS. BEAN receives the Winner award from the international jury of experts in the “Kitchen” category. 

    The fragrance of freshly ground coffee beans – simply wonderful! And the invigorating specialities that confident coffee aficionados make out of them are even more delicious... AdHoc developed the MRS. BEAN coffee grinder so that grinding your favourite varieties becomes effortless. It works manually, using an energy-efficient crank handle but with its totally modern and very stylish look in elegant stainless steel and acrylic design, it has nothing to do with great-grandma’s old-fashioned hand grinder.

    MRS. BEAN is equipped with a high-performance CeraCutXL® grinder that preserves the flavour and produces large amounts. With the help of the four PRECISE+® grinding settings on the outside, results can be achieved from powder fine to coarse, according to your preference and depending on which coffee preparation method you are going to use. The grinder container holds approx. 50 grams of coffee beans. On the occasion of Ambiente 2017, MRS. BEAN was already granted the “Solutions 2017 – products with intelligence” award.

    The Winners in each German Design Award category are selected by a separate international expert jury.

    PEPE - equipped with the patented PreciseCut® cutting device receives the Special Mention award from the international jury of experts. 

    The PEPE chilli cutter speaks a powerful visual language: For Chilies Only! The cutter has a special patented cutting mechanism, the PreciseCut®, exclusively designed for the optimal cutting of dried chillies and seeds. PEPE is simply wonderful to handle. It is also characterized by its exceptional and elegant acrylic and stainless steel design. Featuring a clear plastic container to give a free view of the chillies inside, it turns this hottest of all spices into a real eye-catcher on your table.

    The chilli cutter PEPE has received the Home Style Award in the category „Best Look“ in 2010. PEPE was elected by consumers through a public vote via the internet over a 5 months period and an international jury.

    According to the German Design Council, works “whose design shows particularly successful partial aspects or solutions” are honoured with the distinction Special Mention. This is a promotional award that especially honours the commitment of companies and designers, in this case the design and approach employed for the product PEPE.

    We are absolutely delighted about this award.

    Andaliman pepper

    This rare Indonesian citrus pepper is a distant relative of the Chinese Szechuan Pepper. Andaliman Pepper has not yet been cultivated, however, it is an exclusive wild pepper. The harvesting is extremely extensive and solely requires, such as any further processing, manual work. The small tendrils as well as the small peppercorns can be processed and are ready to eat.

    Andaliman Pepper has a unique lemon flavor with a stunning aroma and scent. It goes perfectly with Curry, Asian cuisine as well as fish and seafood.

    Tip! Try the freshly ground Andaliman Pepper with mango or pineapple!

    Due to its shrubby texture, Andaliman Pepper cannot be easily processed by conventional grinders. Thus, for an optimum outcome, we highly recommend using a large grinder, such as the AdHoc CeraCutXL®. To ensure that the tendrils do not get caught in the grinder, the mill should occasionally be slightly shaken while using.

    Distinguished pepper and salt mills

    Once again AdHoc products have been distinguished with the FORM#2017. With its haptic surface and natural structure, many people prefer wood over other materials. The typical attributes of this unique material are frequently lost, however, due to excessive surface finishing and covering paints and varnishes.

    The new TEXTURA range of mills uses the typical material attributes of wood in order to achieve a sensory experience which is unique for seasoning mills. Through the use of a special sand-blasting process on the TEXTURA, the structure of the wood is enhanced, which makes working with the mill into a particularly tactile experience. To fill the mill, the top of it is removed upwards.

    The TEXTURA mills feature the proven CeraCut® grinder, which is made from high quality ceramic and is infinitely adjustable from fine powder to coarse grind. The TEXTURA range also features ANTIQUE colouring, which enhances the very trendy VINTAGE look. Once you’ve held the TEXTURA in your hand, you won’t want to put it back down again.

    When it comes to spices, amateur chefs do not want to compromise on their kitchen equipment. They are looking for great function and ease of use – and the visuals also play a key role. With the new PROGRIND crank mill from AdHoc, the ambitious amateur chef is certain to fulfil these aspirations. With its large crank and high-efficiency quality CeraCutXL® grinder, the PROGRIND also grinds large quantities in the shortest of times. Whether it is seasoning several steaks for your BBQ party or for soups and broths: all it takes is some quick winds, and the job is done. Smaller quantities of ground pepper or salt are also easy to produce using the finely-adjustable crank, however. The crank also features a set of ball bearings which prevents the occurrence of frictional losses on the grinder. With the removal of the crank, the mill is easy to fill. The visually attractive, matt acrylic cap enables a straightforward estimation of the fill level.

    The PROGRIND mill also grinds larger pepper corns, such as pimento or Tasmanian mountain pepper, with ease. A total of eight different coarseness settings are available: from very fine to coarse. With the removal of the top section and the crank, with its large fill opening, the PROGRIND is easy to refill. In addition to all of its high-tech attributes, the PROGRIND also scores points with its superb visuals. The smart combination of stainless steel and acrylic stands out in any gourmet or professional kitchen – and also comes into its own at summertime barbecue parties.

    Over the decades since its launch, the FORM – Design from Crafts and Industry – competition has developed into one of Germany’s most coveted design awards and is held in high regard by both manufacturers and buyers.

    The judging criteria for inclusion in the exhibition are an innovative design solutions, an appropriate choice of materials and processing methods and, in the case of consumer goods, functional handling.

    Cereal dispenser DEPOSITO receives the German Design Award 2017!

    DEPOSITO - for depositing cereals and more receives the Special Mention award from the international jury of experts. The German Design Award is the international premium prize of the German Design Council. Its goal is to discover, present and distinguish unique design trends.

    A healthy muesli in the morning, cereals and rice for main meals, nuts and sweets as a snack – that’s what we like. However it’s not always that easy to store and portion these and similar foods. It’s pretty easy to spill quite a bit pouring them out of the pack and many of them don’t stay crunchy and fresh for long if left unprotected. The perfect alternative for this is the DEPOSITO cereal dispenser.

    Thanks to its modern design the DEPOSITO is an eyecatcher in any kitchen and also looks great on the breakfast table – stainless steel at the bottom and transparent acrylic at the top for total transparency. The chic dispenser doesn’t just look stylish but most importantly it allows for the crumb-free, easy portioning of dry foods. A special aroma-tight lid protects the contents and ensures clean work surfaces. To clean, remove the inner silicon portioning device and wipe out the container. The silicon portioning device can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

    The DEPOSITO cereals dispenser is available on its own and in combination with a solid removable stainless steel stand for extremely easy handling when used at the table.

    According to the German Design Council, works “whose design shows particularly successful partial aspects or solutions” are honoured with the distinction Special Mention. This is a promotional award that especially honours the commitment of companies and designers, in this case the design and approach employed for the product DEPOSITO.

    We are absolutely delighted about this award.

    With professional chefs and amateur barbecue kings the seasoning has to be perfect and fast. Hot, quick and above all plenty of it – that’s the motto. The new MP52 PROFI salt and pepper grinder comes in really handy here. It even grinds large quantities in no time at all and has therefore proved to be a great help when it comes to preparing huge portions.

    For example, when seasoning several steaks at the same time or for soups or broths too. You can achieve this with the high performance CeraCutXL® grinder, a totally new innovation in grinder technology. Compared to standard grinders it produces, believe it or not, roughly four times the amount of salt or pepper!

    Pepper or salt mill CLASSIC - Ten years of the best for people with taste

    Spices for food and atmosphere: the Classic salt and pepper grinders from AdHoc interpret tradition with modern functionality and aesthetics. And they have already been doing this for more ten years. 

    Quality and aesthetics with the button

    Customers of the Classic series can rely on the advantages they have become fond of and tried-and-tested features, as is fitting for a classic. With their typically clean-lined design, the Classic grinders are based on the Bauhaus style. The subtle cylindrical shape and the brushed stainless steel will fit in ideally with every kitchen concept. The grinders also impress with their clear looks when on the table. 

    Something about Classic that has always been classic: the combination of looks and technology. For example, an infinitely adjustable high-performance ceramic grinding mechanism harder than steel is hidden beneath the fine casing. This means an extremely long service life, because the grinding mechanism is non-wearing and non-corroding. The spices are stored in an acrylic container and are turned into powdered spice with a flick of the wrist 

    Function and design – style-defining for ten years

    For more than ten years, AdHoc Classic salt and pepper grinders have been convincing at the highest level, so that other suppliers have aligned themselves with this purist style. Lufthansa too has been enjoying AdHoc’s Classic salt and pepper grinders for five years: with a flick of the wrist, the business class and first class passengers spice their food just how they like it and with style.

    Twenty years of design made in Germany by AdHoc

    It all began twenty years ago with the distribution of two collections from Spain, some individually customised products from Italy and some self-designed items. We now offer approximately 150 collection items which have been created by our own development and design team.


    Frank Kaltenbach: “I have always wanted to develop products which stand in the best tradition of German design, such as Braun or the Bauhaus movement. Products that not only boast attractive design, but also offer excellent function.” It is on the basis of this interplay between function, aesthetics and quality that good German design should exist – creating products that are built to last.


    Twenty years ago AdHoc started making improvised tables with a team of just two. Frank Kaltenbach: “Today we have an unbeatable team covering the areas of product development, marketing, sales, storage/logistics and accounts.”
    Our products are now to be found in more than 30 countries, on every continent.
