Cuisinart is focusing on smart appliance solutions, multi-functional items and feature-packed products that address major consumer cooking trends, including its new T Series line of touch screen appliances.
“Air fryers, coffeemakers and food processors were some of the stand-out categories for us and continue to grow,” said Mary Rodgers, director of marketing communications, Cuisinart. “All these products have multi-functional features that help make cooking more efficient. We feel confident air fryers will continue to be a hot trend as consumers continue to prioritize healthy eating habits and lifestyles.”
Rodgers said the company is launching two major new lines in 2020, the first being Cuisinart’s T Series Line, a selection of contemporary touch screen appliances. “These products will come in sleek designs with intuitive touch screen controls,” she said. “So far, the line includes two toasters (CPT-T20 and CPT-T40), a burr grinder (DBM-T10) and a 14-cup programmable coffeemaker (DCC-T20).”
The new T Series includes two touch screen toasters, the CPT-T20 and CPT-T40, both with intuitive touch screen controls; six shade settings, extra-wide, 1.5-inch bread slots, a +30 seconds toasting time option, and a new Quick View feature that allows users to check its progress. Suggested retail price is $49.95 for the two-slice toaster, and $69.96 for the four-slice toaster.
Also new in the T Series is the DCC-T20 Touchscreen 14-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker. The touch screen controls allow users to tap icons to choose start time, shutoff time, number of cups and brew strength. The unit features 24-hour programmability, self-clean, auto-off, and an optional ready alert tone. The coffeemaker is equipped with a 14-cup carafe and gold-toned reusable charcoal water filter. Suggested retail is $129.95.
“Later this year, we will launch a line of high-quality cordless, rechargeable small appliances for ultimate convenience,” Rodgers added. “Our Cordless Compact Blender (RCB-100) is a product we expect to do well, due to consumers’ evolving on-the-go lifestyles and desire to integrate healthy practices into their daily lives. You can bring this appliance just about everywhere: the office, when traveling, etc.”
