2014 Housewares Design Awards Winners Announced

Wednesday February 5th, 2014 - 10:45AM


A portable water filter, a multi-purpose bag clip and gourmet bread knife took “Best of the Best” honors at yesterday's 2014 Housewares Design Awards gala and ceremony.

The “Best of the Best” honorees were among the 12 “Best in Category” award winners presented during the awards ceremony at the New York Marriott Marquis overlooking Times Square. The ceremony also honored the 2014 Green House Award winner for eco-responsible housewares design.

The Best of the Best Gold award went to the EveryDrop Water Filter by Whirlpool Corporation, which features “fast flow” technology to filter one gallon in two minutes.

The twixit! Seal & Pour Bag Clip from Linden Sweden, Inc. won the “Best of the Best” Silver award. The bag clip features a pour spout with lid that makes pouring from a resealed bag easy and quick.

The “Best of the Best” Bronze award went to the Classic 9-Inch Double Serrated Bread Knife from Wüsthof. The knife features an additional serration inside the knife’s traditional serrations to reduce crumbs and effectively slice delicate ingredients such as tomatoes or melons.

The “Green House” award, honoring the best eco-friendly product of the year, was given to the Snapware Eco-Flip from World Kitchen (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd. The borosilicate glass beverage bottle has a two-part leak-proof flip cap mechanism for easier sipping and resealing.

The 2014 Housewares Design Awards were presented by HomeWorld Business, with sponsorship by NY Now, Whitford Corporation and Gourmet Insider magazine. Products judged were introduced to the United States market between October 1, 2012 and September 30, 2013. No prototypes were allowed.
