Sporting a total brand makeover, Black + Decker showcased a number of new items at the 2014 International Home + Housewares Show. Viewpoints staff attended the show and wanted to share some of the upcoming products with readers.
Upcoming Black + Decker products
An easy alternative to using a standard oven, the Black + Decker Extra Wide Convection Oven (priced at $69.99) boasts an extra wide cooking space with its ability to accommodate a 9”x13” bake pan. It has dual position slide racks, comes with a bake pan and broil rack, and has a removable crumb tray, allowing for highly varied types of cooking. Its four functions include convection bake, broil, toast, and “keep warm”. It also has two dual timers, one 60-minute timer and one dedicated precision toast timer, and comes with a two year limited warranty.
On the cutting edge of the toaster is the Black + Decker Rapid Toast 2-Slice Toaster (priced at $39.99). It contains a swing down crumb tray, an extra toast lift to help remove items without injury, and extra wide slots with self adjusting guides to cook your toast to your preference. It has three functions [bagel, frozen, and cancel] and seven shade settings to help you better choose your doneness, and also comes with the Black + Decker two year limited warranty.
Black + Decker also showcased their countertop choppers: the Black + Decker Ergo Chopper (priced at $29.99) and the Black + Decker Glass Bowl Chopper (priced at $39.99). The Ergo Chopper’s key features include high/low pulse controls, 200 watts of power, a stainless steel 2-tier blade, two 3-cup nestable and stackable bowls with lids, and a two year limited warranty.
