CUISINART IS BRINGING TO THE TABLE

Kitchen Tools and Gadgets, and a Mandoline with Exclusive Features

Food for Thought:

A Mirepoix of Culinary Tools for Any Kitchen

From one-pot wonders to four-burner meals, home cooks are flipping, stirring, slicing, and dicing more than ever. Wooden spoons and spatulas no longer rule the accessory drawer, and a wide variety of specialized tools are taking their place in kitchens everywhere.

Cuisinart is introducing a host of new kitchen tool and gadget lines that make food prep easier and more streamlined than ever before, from slicing pizza and whisking eggs to peeling carrots and grating cheese. The new products were designed to not only cook with ease and comfort, but to withstand the rigorous usage that kitchen essentials endure every day.  Additionally, an array of stylish designs ensures that Cuisinart’s new tools and gadgets will make a statement in any kitchen.

“Our latest tool and gadget collections guarantee that home cooks will have a complete and cohesive assortment of essential, everyday culinary tools at their fingertips,” says Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart.  “The company’s aesthetically pleasing, innovative kitchen tools combine form and function with the quality and excellence that is synonymous with the Cuisinart brand.”

Cuisinart’s premium mandoline features ultra-sharp stainless steel blades, made with the same precision technology used to forge those found in the company’s legendary food processors.  A unique holder pushes food into the blade to slice more efficiently, and a safety cover flips over it when it’s not in use.  The mandoline easily adjusts for thick or thin slices using a patent-pending slide, and includes accessory tools that offer even more cutting options and store directly in the unit.  All components of Cuisinart’s mandoline are dishwasher-safe. 

Cuisinart Barrel Handle Tool and Gadget Line
