CHICAGO, March 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the successful launch of KitchenAid cookware at the 2013 International Home + Housewares Show, the brand is rounding out its collection by introducing six new pieces and two significant product updates at this year's show.
"Since replacing licensed cookware with our own collections, we've experienced a surge in positive feedback from professional and home cooks alike," said Michael Huie, global business unit director for KitchenAid. "Our focus is giving cooks every high-quality tool they need to raise the bar on everyday recipes and take on new challenges."
One of the newest additions to the cookware collection is a cast iron grill pan with panini press. The 10" x 10" grill pan is designed to provide results similar to those of an outdoor grill, and includes a handle for easy maneuvering on a cooktop. Combined with raised ridges across the entire pan, its heavy duty, heat-retaining cast iron design ensures grill-like results – right down to the grill marks – for everything from fish tacos and flatbreads to steaks and satays. The cast iron panini press insert features a stainless steel knob on top and raised ridges underneath for simultaneously producing grill marks on both sides of toasted sandwiches, hamburgers and other foods. The grill pan and panini press will be available in Almond Cream, Empire Red, Fiesta Blue, Ivy Green and Onyx Black at a suggested retail price of $199.99. The set will be available in the second quarter of 2014.
Also launching this year is a new wok and steamer insert, together capable of producing high heat or gentle steam, as needed. The wok is 13" in diameter, and is both induction capable and dishwasher safe. The steamer insert, available separately, acts as a double boiler inside the wok for steaming fish, seafood, vegetables, dumplings and other dishes. The tri-ply stainless steel wok and steamer insert will be available in the second quarter of 2014. Suggested retail price for the wok is $189.99; suggested retail price for the steamer insert is $99.99.
Rounding out the new cookware pieces are single and double roasters. The single roaster measures 14" x 18", and is built with a removable rack insert for imparting grill-like flavor and markings on a wide variety of foods. The double roaster is a pair of 10" x 14" non-stick roasters, each built with horizontal handles to easily hold as one unit when serving as a combined roaster and lid, which helps lock in the flavor and juices of foods while roasting. When cooking for a crowd, the double roaster can also be used as a pair of single roasters. Both the single and double roasters are designed with a 3mm clad thickness and are available in tri-ply stainless steel, painted stainless steel, and Empire Red or Onyx Black aluminum finishes. Suggested retail price for the single roaster is $399.99; suggested retail price for the double roaster is $229.99.
Lastly, there are updates to the current KitchenAid tri-ply stainless steel and tri-ply copper clad cookware lines. Both have been enhanced with 3mm thickness, the lids have been given an aesthetic update, and the handles are now finished with brushed stainless steel for the stainless collection and polished stainless steel for the copper clad collection.
The brand's collection of kettles is also expanding with two new models – the C Kettle and E Kettle. The 2-quart kettles are designed with a brushed stainless steel finish. The E Kettle is built with a stainless steel handle and trim band. They are both induction capable and dishwasher safe, and will be available in May. Suggested retail price for the C Kettle is $64.99; suggested retail price for the E Kettle is $109.99.
Since the introduction of its legendary stand mixer in 1919 and first dishwasher in 1949, KitchenAid has built on the legacy of these icons to create a complete line of products designed for cooks. Today, the KitchenAid brand offers virtually every essential for the well-equipped kitchen with a collection that includes everything from countertop appliances to cookware, ranges to refrigerators, and whisks to wine cellars. Cook for the Cure®, the brand's partnership with Susan G. Komen®, is now in its 13th year and has raised over $9 million to help find a cure for breast cancer.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
