- knife blocks or sets.
- Also included are open stock items, such as:

Consumer survey data
For the purposes of this report, Mintel commissioned exclusive consumer research through Toluna USA to explore consumer use of/attitudes and behaviors toward cookware. Mintel was responsible for the survey design, data analysis, and reporting. Fieldwork was conducted in April and May 2011 among a sample of 2,000 adults aged 18+ with access to the internet.
Mintel selects survey respondents so that they are proportionally balanced to the entire U.S. adult population based on the key demographics of gender, age, household income, and region. Mintel also slightly oversamples, relative to the population, respondents that are Hispanic or black to ensure an adequate representation of these groups in Mintel’s survey results. Please note that Mintel’s exclusive surveys are conducted online and in English only. Hispanics who are not online and/or do not speak English are not included in Mintel’s survey results.
While race and Hispanic origin are separate demographic characteristics, Mintel often compares them to each other. Please note that the responses for race (white, black, Asian, Native American, or other race) will overlap those that also are Hispanic, because Hispanics can be of any race.
