As always, the 2013 International Home + Housewares Show was the destination for the latest and greatest kitchen gadgets, ergonomic utensils, winsome gift items and even cleaning robots from around the world. We had the chance to catch up with some familiar faces as well as several newcomers looking to establish themselves at the largest show of its kind in the U.S.
This year also saw the 20th Anniversary of the Student Design Competition, which has seen some 4,000+ entries since the program launched in 1993. We had the chance to catch up with this year's winners, whose work is among our 100 favorite products from this year's show.
