Stamford, CT - March 2006 Food for Thought:
A key focus of the HomeWorld Housewares Census 2005 included an analysis of the indoor grill market, which reflects the fact that indoor grills have evolved from a specialty item to a core kitchen electrics category. According to the market research in the HomeWorld Housewares Census, new product development in the indoor grill category is focused on innovative features, sizes and styles.
“At Cuisinart, our indoor grills meet these criteria and go beyond - with a variety of features that reflect increased versatility and convenience for today’s time-pressed consumers,” says Mary Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications for Cuisinart.
What to Look for When Purchasing an Indoor Grill:
The Cuisinart Griddler Express™ Contact Grill (model no. GR-2) allows home chefs to enjoy the benefits of grilling year-round. The generously-sized 12 inch X 9 inch non-stick, non-removable grill plates can accommodate a variety of food items, including panini, steak, chicken, fish and vegetables. The Griddler delivers superior grilling results - a crisp exterior with a moist interior - because of the professional style floating hinge that adjusts to the thickness of the food being prepared. Home chefs can also incorporate healthy cooking techniques with the Griddler Express™ since the non-stick surface allows most recipes to be prepared with little or no oil.
The Cuisinart Griddler Express™ Contact Grill has a variable temperature control with low, medium and high settings. Indicator lights reflect when the desired cooking temperature has been reached, as well as when the unit’s power is on.
Additional product benefits include a cleaning tool for easy maintenance and a recipe book with favorite dishes from the Cuisinart test kitchen. The Griddler Express™ also comes with a cup to catch excess fat.
The Griddler Express™ has a sleek, brushed stainless steel exterior and is embossed with the Griddler logo. It is attractive enough to keep on the countertop and integrates well with traditional or contemporary décor.
