Williams Sonoma Lifts Curtain On Crux Ghetto Gastro Line

Williams Sonoma, Crux, Ghetto Gastro
The Crux Ghetto Gastro line is now available at Williams Sonoma.

Williams Sonoma has officially launched its new collection of kitchen electrics that were developed as part of a collaboration with kitchenware supplier Crux and Ghetto Gastro.

After giving consumers a sneak peek at the collection in mid-September by featuring its TRNR rotating waffle maker, the home specialty retailer is now offering the full assortment of kitchen electrics.

The line includes a blender, coffeemaker, pressure cooker/air fryer, bread maker, toaster and toaster oven.


“Williams Sonoma has a rich history of offering our customers unique products that tell a story and support a worthy cause,” said Ryan Ross, president of Williams Sonoma. “We are proud to partner with Ghetto Gastro and support their commitment to community and advancing social justice through food by being the exclusive retailer of the CRUXGG collaboration.”

Born in the Bronx and inspired by a youthful generation of cooking enthusiasts, Ghetto Gastro is a collective of top chefs who utilize food to empower communities and advance social justice by igniting conversations around race, class and inclusion. 

Ghetto Gastro’s members Jon Gray, Lester Walker and Pierre Serrão worked with Crux and Williams Sonoma for more than a year to design a line of countertop kitchen electrics that serve up bold designs for home cooks who are plugged into the world beyond their kitchen.

“The CRUX design studio and the kitchen share the same energy, and we wanted to create that vibe in our products – bringing bold, conversation-starters to the countertop; products that have a purpose both in the kitchen and in the community,” said Shae Hong, founder and CEO of Sensio.

“From the moment we linked up with Shae, the CRUX team, and Williams Sonoma, we knew that we shared a vision for disrupting and breathing new energy into the category,” says Jon Gray, co-founder of Ghetto Gastro. “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.”
