Gefu Brings Garlico To U.S. Market

CHICAGO—Gefu is bringing several new kitchenware designs to the U.S. market here at the International Home + Housewares Show.

The Garlico is said to have a special perforated disc and an extra-large press chamber that helps to make pressing even unpeeled cloves. An integrated scraper is said to provide residue-free garlic paste seasoning. The Garlico is made of stainless steel, is ergonomically designed and has a swing-out sieve insert for easier cleaning.

The company is also introducing its reusable Future straw sets that are made of recyclable taste-neutral glass and stainless steel. According to Gefu, the straws serve as an ecological alternative to plastic straws. The Future transparent glass straws feature a curve that the company said makes it easier to drink latte macchiato, long drinks and other drinks out of taller glasses or bottles. The glass straws are 9 inches long. They are made of heat-resistant and dishwasher-safe, taste-neutral borosilicate glass. A thin cleaning brush is included.

Gefu will also roll out the Future glass straw in black. It measures 7 inches long and is also suitable for sipping water, juice, smoothies or cocktails out of low glasses. They are also made of heat-resistant recyclable taste-neutral borosilicate glass.

The collection also includes stainless steel straws that also measure 9 inches long. They are made of high-grade, corrosion-resistant stainless steel. All of the new straws are dishwasher safe, the company said.

In addition, the company will have its Flexicut vegetable and fruit cutter on hand. The new tool is said to produce crunchy vegetable sticks, cuts potatoes for crisp wedges and divides fruit into segments for fruit salads. It features an adjustable steel blade insert that can be adjusted to the desired size. A consumer can then put the food into the opening and use the plunger to push it through the cutting tubes.

The new Speedwing multi-chopper utilizes a cable-pull mechanism that chops, mashes, mixes, whirls and stirs a wide range of ingredients. The cutting insert can chop carrots, nuts and the like, in sizes that range from coarse to extremely fine. It also has a scale to help measure ingredients, as well as additional accessories.
