Progressive Readies New Prepworks Kitchenware

Progressive is preparing several new Prepworks kitchen gadgets and tools for the fall/winter season.

The new Dual Peeler is designed to switch between straight and serrated blades by rotating the safety blade guard. The serrated blade peels soft-skinned produce like tomatoes and peaches, while the straight blade is designed to take on apples, carrots and other firm produce. It also comes with an integrated potato eyer. It has a suggested retail price of $9.99.

The company’s new multi-function jar opener can open jars, bottles, packages and cans. It has a flip out packaging blade that locks into place and the integrated bottle opener. It has a suggested retail price of $11.99.

The pocket produce brush has dual-length bristles that are designed to clean vegetables. The stiff bristles are for detailed scrubbing while the flexible bristles are for gentler cleaning. The compact size fits in the palm and its low profile is good for storage. It has a suggested retail price of $4.99.
