Getting ready for fall with Calphalon

Extending its presence from stovetop to countertop, leading kitchen housewares brand Calphalon® introduces a trend-forward line of small electric appliances designed to both simplify your cooking and beautify your kitchen.

Available in stores this fall and in early 2009, the line features four exquisitely designed, high-performance pieces: the extra-large convection oven, the removable plate grill, the 7-quart slow cooker and the No-Peek™ Belgian waffle maker.

“Our new line has what cooking enthusiasts are looking for: premium heating performance plus a hot new look for the countertop,” said Director of Design Paul Logiudice. Outside, sleek curves and a combination of brushed and polished metals distinguish each of the pieces, while inside Calphalon’s exclusive OPTI-HEAT ™ SYSTEM delivers premium heating performance. Each product is intelligently engineered using premium materials to provide even heating. A signature high performance nonstick formula, developed exclusively for the line, makes a stand-out statement in stunning bronze, while offering flawless food release and effortless clean-up.

The new Calphalon line includes these thoughtfully-designed pieces:

XL Convection Oven
More oven space for your counter space – that’s the simple idea behind the new Calphalon XL Convection Oven (MSRP $199.99). With .7 cubic feet of cooking space. the oven accommodates a standard 9 x 13 pan – perfect for roasting a small chicken or a batch of brownies – and offers both convection and conventional cooking.

Removable Plate Grill
From grilled salmon to grilled paninis, the Calphalon Removable Plate Grill (MSRP $149.99) offers a myriad of options for quick and easy suppers. Separate time and temperature settings put the home chef in control of the cooking process. Grilling plates lift out for spotless clean-up.

No Peek™ Waffle Maker
How do you like your waffle? Delicately toasted? Deep golden brown? With a lighted control that lets you dial in your preference for light, medium or dark, then tracks cooking progress, the No Peek™ Waffle Maker ($99.99) takes the guess-work out of cooking a gourmet breakfast.

7 Quart Slow Cooker
Whether you’re the “set it and forget it” type, or a cook who likes to control every last detail of the cooking process, the Calphalon Slow Cooker (MSRP $149.99) has the perfect setting just for you. Set the cook time and temperature yourself, or simply choose Auto mode. A count-down display tells you, hour by hour, how much cooking time is left.

The Calphalon line of small electric appliances will be available at Bed Bath & Beyond and other fine retailers in fall 2008.
