Cuisinart has expanded its food prep kitchen electrics assortment with the debut of several new items that includes a new air fryer, countertop ovens and pressure cookers.
The company’s compact air fryer features a small footprint and is offered in a brushed stainless steel design. According to the company, the unit can air fry up to 2.5-pounds of food and has a specially engineered motor fan that is said to deliver a powerful airflow and high heat.
Also new is Cuisinart’s 13-cup rice & grain multi-cooker. It is equipped with 18 pre-programmed settings that allow for the preparation of rice, grains, pasta and beans while allowing consumers to steam, pre-wash, soak and sauté.
The settings can be navigated via the unit’s LCD screen and selector knobs and buttons. Once the food inside the unit is cooked, it automatically switches over to the “keep warm” setting. The multi-cooker is also offered with a measuring cup, rice paddle and steam tray. Most removable parts are dishwasher safe and the anodized aluminum cooking pot has a non-stick coating.
With 1,800-watts of power, the new toaster oven broiler is equipped with a variety of functions including toast, bagel, bake, broil, pizza and keep warm. It offers 0.5-cubic-foot capacity that allows the unit to accommodate an 11-inch pizza or six slices of toast.
Cuisinart’s digital air fryer toaster oven offers numerous functions including air fry, proof, dehydrate, low, bake, broil, pizza, roast, toast, bagel, reheat, warm and dual cook. It also features low-temperature settings that allow the unit to slow cook and braise. The toaster oven offers air fry capacity of three pounds and has a temperature range of 80° Fahrenheit to 450° Fahrenheit.
The kitchen electrics supplier has also added a selection of pressure cookers in three sizes— 4-quarts, 6-quarts and 8-quarts. Each unit in the line features a range of pre-programmed settings including low pressure, high pressure, brown, simmer, sauté and automatic keep warm. A digital thermostat, 90-minute timer, LED countdown display, non-stick dishwasher-safe cooking pot and included trivet offer added convenience, according to the company.
