Kuhn Rikon introduces a new concept in cookware: the Duromatic® Micro Microwave Pressure Cooker. This Swiss-designed innovation combines pressure cooking and microwaving for a fast and easy route to tasty, nutritious home cooked meals. The Duromatic Micro stands out for its speed, ease of use, and energy efficiency.
It outperforms conventional cookware for fast meal preparation. Pressure cooking reduces cooking times by up to 70 percent, and microwaving takes about a half or a third of the time it would take on the stove – so the combination of the two is unbeatable for speed.
Fast cooking makes home cooking easier for time-pressed consumers, and it has nutritional benefits. Prolonged heating can degrade and damage the vitamins and minerals in food. Speed cooking is regarded as the best cooking method for preserving vitamins and minerals – in addition to aromatic taste and texture.
“The development of the Duromatic® pressure cooker is based on the practical idea of cooking in a faster, healthier and energy-saving way,” said Pascal Gull, Product Manager.
The Duromatic Micro is energy efficient, and highly cost effective, because it makes cooking at home fast and doable.
Constructed with the attention to detail for which Kuhn Rikon is known, the Duromatic Micro features an accurate pressure indicator and two safety elements that protect against excess pressure. There are foldout handles on the sides and a locking lid that secures to the base.
Anyone accustomed to conventional microwave cooking will be excited by the versatility of the Duromatic Micro. It comes with a recipe book with 40 delicious recipes – such as Cauliflower and Carrot Curry and Nutella Chocolate Bake – plus a quick reference guide for beans, grains and vegetables.
The Kuhn Rikon Duromatic® Micro Microwave Pressure Cooker has a 4-quart capacity and comes in Red with Red Accents or Grey with Green Accents. It is available for immediate shipment, with a suggested retail price of $60.

The new Brina insulated wine sleeve collection (formerly known as Amazing Freezerinos) will make its debut at the new at the International Home + Housewares Show 2017 being held at Chicago’s McCormick Place March 18 – 21. Brina can be found in the Inventors Corner in the North Building. Brina is a first-time exhibitor at the International Home + Housewares Show.
Handcrafted and produced exclusively in Italy, the Brina wine sleeve is made with Enofoam insulation. This allows the temperature of the consumer’s bottle of wine to be retained for up to an hour and a half. Brina offers the wine sleeves in three shapes: one for white or red wines, one for sparkling wines and one for water, beer or half bottles of wine.
For white wines, the Brina sleeves do not need to be frozen before use or placed on ice. Wines will be held at the temperature the wine lover chooses.
Lightweight and easy to use, each wine sleeve features zippers on both sides making it easy to put on and take off and simplifies everyday life whether it is displayed elegantly on a table top as a decoration while dining, or used while traveling or at an event. Available in a wide variety of colors and patterns, they are durable and padded, providing added protection for the bottle.
“Our wine sleeves are a sophisticated and practical accessory for wine lovers,” says Donna D’Agostino, Chief Executive Officer of the company. “They exude elegance and beauty. The inventor, Mr. Begnamino Longobardi, from Pescara, Italy, wanted to create a fashionable sleeve for wine bottles. He didn’t stop there, but turned the sleeve into something that keeps the bottle at the desired temperature.”
Italian cookware manufacturer TVS S.P.A. introduces Teorema, a dazzling line of pots and pans designed by Michael Graves Design, one of the world’s most innovative design brands, at the International Home + Housewares Show.
The 13-year-old “Kitchen Twins,” Emily and Lyla Allen, will use the cookware in preparing family-style Italian dishes at the show on Sunday, March 19 from 12 noon to 3 p.m. in the TVS booth. Having grown up around the natural food business in an entrepreneurial household, the Kitchen Twins have been blogging about healthy eating and cooking since they were nine years old. Beyond the blog, they appear in national media, teach cooking classes, and serve as spokespeople for global brands like Teorema cookware.
The Teorema line, which can be used on all types of stovetops and in the oven, feature eye-catching curves, smart materials and distinctive design to enrich the cooking experience from beginning to end. The high-gauge aluminum material guarantees that heat will be distributed evenly and the temperature will remain stable. Three layers of TopTek Pro, TVS’ quality non-stick coating, provide excellent resistance to scratching and abrasion, as well as better cooking results and easy clean-up.
A team of MGD designers focused from the outset on the distinguishing features of each piece of Teorema cookware, from the body to the handles and lids. “The result is a design where each piece is so much more than just the sum of its parts,” says Donald Strum, Principal, Product Design, of Michael Graves Design.
The special profile of the Teorema cookware handles forms a curve that can naturally be used as a spoon rest during cooking, preventing food residue from meeting the cooking surface or with countertops. Handles are comfortable, secure and responsive in the hand with or without an oven mitt or potholder. Glass lids make it easy to see the cooking process and are simple to clean. The quality connection between the body of each piece and its handle offers maximum strength and durability.
“Because of the special attention paid to every detail, Teorema cookware helps improve the cooking process, offering cooks at every level an even better kitchen experience,” Bertozzini said.
This brand new line of cookware will be available in the summer of 2017, ranging in price from $74 to $150.
Clipper Corporation introduces Allrecipes™ Precision Bake & Food Prep Tools, including a four-piece combination mixing bowl and measuring set, a dough cutter/bench scraper with an integrated silicone bowl scraper, and measuring cups and spoons.
The practical and space-saving 4-Piece Nested Prep Essentials set includes multi-functional pieces designed to measure, strain and mix. The large 3.5-quart. mixing bowl features non-skid silicone feet to keep it from slipping on the counter while you stir batter and sauces, mix salads, or marinate meats. The comfortable handle and built-in pour spout make pouring easy and drip free. You can use the three-quart colander—which also has non-skid feet—to wash and strain lettuce, berries, vegetables and more. When used together, the large mixing bowl and colander provide a convenient way to wash and keep your ingredients fresh and dry after cleaning. The two smaller pieces in the set are combination measuring cups and mixing bowls. These 2- and 4 -up containers both feature a transparent window and measuring marks for precision. The larger sizes of these measuring cups make them great for light mixing, in addition to measuring hot, cold, solid or liquid ingredients. The entire set nests together for convenient storage.
The Allrecipes™ Bake & Cook Multi-Tool combines several tools into one set. The silicone bowl scraper stores inside the dough cutter/bench scraper. Slide out the scraper and use it to get every last little bit of batter, whipped cream, sauce or dough from mixing bowls and pans. The scraper doubles as a spreader for smoothing frosting, and the durable dough cutter has handy 1-inch markings for precise pastry measurements. When you are not measuring dough, the tool can be used as a bench scraper to transfer chopped ingredients to your pot, or to clean hard-to-grab ingredients off the counter or cutting board.
The Allrecipes™ four-piece measuring cup and measuring spoon sets are designed for easy pouring from the spouted ends. You can easily move the silicone tabs on the keeper rings to remove and replace individual cups and spoons. The silicone tab on the measuring spoons does double duty as a leveler for precise measurements. Flat bases allow the measuring cups and spoons to sit level and steady on the counter, making them perfect for both wet and dry ingredients.
All pieces in the Allrecipes™ Precision Bake & Food Prep Tools collection are dishwasher safe and BPA free. The Nested Prep Essentials Set will retail for $29.99. The Bake & Cook Multi-Tool will retail for $9.99 and the four-piece measuring cups and spoon sets will retail for $9.99 and $7.99 respectively.
