Food for Thought:
Customization and Convenience are Significant Factors for Kitchen Electrics Category
"In 2005, the key buzzwords in the small appliance industry will remain ?convenience' and ?personalization,'" reports HomeWorld Business in an article written in January 2005.
"Consumers increasingly are on the lookout for products that are easy to use and capable of creating an end result closely aligned to their personal preferences."
What to Look for When Purchasing a Toaster Oven:
The Cuisinart Classic Toaster Oven Broiler (model no. TOB-50) performs a variety of culinary tasks including baking, broiling and toasting. From four thick bagel halves for breakfast to chicken Parmesan for dinner, the Classic Toaster Oven Broiler offers a broad range of menu options for every member of the family. The generous .5 cubic foot capacity is large enough to bake a whole chicken or a 9-inch pie, and easily toasts up to six slices of bread.
For consumers who prefer a smaller space-saving model, Cuisinart's Retro Toaster Oven Broiler (model no. RTO-20) is .3 cubic feet in capacity. This model also evokes a 50's theme with its streamlined chrome body and art deco styling. It handles most everyday tasks and can toast up to four slices of bread.
Both toaster ovens boast a variety of innovations, including a temperature compensation feature that provides accurate and consistent temperature control. The Classic Toaster Oven Broiler has three control dials that allow home chefs to control the temperature, function and toasting shade according to individual preferences, while the Retro Toaster Oven Broiler features slide control operation. Another distinct feature of Cuisinart's retro model is that when consumers press the button to open the oven door, it opens upward and advances the rack at the same time.
Cuisinart's new toaster oven broilers come with a stainless steel bake tray and broil pan, along with a slide-out crumb tray. Other benefits are a durable, easy-to-clean interior, power "On" LED indicator and cord wrap for convenient storage. An instruction book with tips and Cuisinart kitchen-tested recipes is also included.
Both of Cuisinart's toaster ovens offer timeless styling with premium brushed stainless steel and smooth black accents. The tinted glass door adds contemporary appeal.
