Calphalon Expands Food, Beverage Prep Assortments

Calphalon is expanding its assortment of housewares products with the debut of items in key categories including kitchen electrics, cookware, bakeware and cutlery.

New in kitchen electrics is the Temp iQ Espresso Machine with grinder and steam wand. The unit features an integrated conical burr mill grinder with 30 adjustable grind settings that allow the user to have fresh espresso with every use.

According to Calphalon, a pre-infusion cycle blooms the espresso grounds at the beginning of the extraction and the Temp iQ system, featuring Thermoblock heating technology and PID temperature control, is said to allow for even heating during the espresso extraction.

Priced at $599.99, the espresso machine includes a stainless steel milk jug, tamper, cleaning brush, cleaning disk and cleaning pin.

The IntelliCrisp two-slice toaster is equipped with automatic guides that position bread for more even exposure to heating elements and extra-wide slots that accommodate a range of sizes and shapes, the company said. Suggested retail price is $59.99.

The Classic non-stick cookware with no-boil-over insert set features BPA-free silicone no-boil-over inserts that are said to recirculate boiling water back into the pot to prevent boil-over spills.

The 14-piece PFOA-free set includes an 8-inch fry pan; 10-inch fry pan; 12-inch fry pan with cover; 1.5-quart saucepot with cover; 2.5-quart sauce pot with cover and no-boil-over insert; 3-quart sauté pan with cover; 6-quart stockpot with cover; and no-boil-over insert. All items are oven safe up to 450° Fahrenheit, said the company. Suggested retail price is $299.99.

The Contemporary SharpIN non-stick cutlery features a blade design with a nonstick coating that is said to prevent food from sticking to the knife, speeding up prep time and making cleanup quick and easy. The knife block features SharpIN Technology, which sharpens knives every time they are removed or replaced so they stay sharp for a lifetime.
