Nordic Ware Expands Microwave Cookware Line

MINNEAPOLIS— In an effort to keep up with consumer demand for ways to make easy, quick and healthy meals in the microwave, Nordic Ware has launched new additions to its already extensive line of microwave cookware.

“For the microwave, we have launched the new soup mug, a plate stacker that allows you to heat two plates at once in the microwave, and the Micro Mix & Melt, a three-cup size bowl with spout and handle,” said Jennifer Dalquist, evp/sales and marketing for Nordic Ware.

The new plate stacker is made from BPA-free and melamine-free plastic that is able to withstand the high heat of the microwave, the company said. The plate stacker allows consumers to stack multiple items to be cooked or reheated at once, or it is a solution to warm two plates at once instead of consecutively, taking up less time and ensuring both meals are properly warmed. Available with a five-year warranty, the microwave plate stacker should be cleaned with warm, soapy water after use and has a suggested retail price of $7.

The company’s new Micro Mix & Melt is designed to allow consumers to melt items like butter, chocolate, drizzling glaze, syrups and warming sauces in the microwave. The three-cup bowl is made from BPA-free and melamine-free plastic that is said to be able to withstand the high heat of the microwave.

The Micro Mix & Melt is also freezer safe, as well as top-rack dishwasher safe, the company said, and comes with a five-year warranty. However, noted Nordic Ware, while the product is meant for use in the microwave, it should be microwaved in 20-second intervals and not for more than two minutes. SRP: $7.

The company’s new soup mug has a 1-pint capacity, comes with a spatter-proof lid and also has a stay-cool sleeve for easy removal and handling. The mug is also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

In an effort to keep up with consumers who are looking to create full meals in their microwaves, the Nordic Ware Multi-Boiler is just that. Available with a 5.5-cup capacity, the Multi-Boiler can be used in the microwave to cook full meals like pasta with sauces, rice-based meals, oatmeal and more. Made from BPA-free and melamine-free plastic that is able to withstand the high heat of the microwave, the Multi-Boiler lid is meant to prevent spatters during cooking and also to drain foods such as vegetables or pasta.

For the Multi-Boiler, the suggested cleaning method is with warm soapy water after use. The product comes with a five-year warranty and is available for a suggested retail price of $13.

Nordic Ware’s new microwave products are made in the U.S. and are available now.
