T-Fal Focuses New Electrics On Multi-Functionality

T-Fal’s new small electrics assortment on display here at the International Home + Housewares Show features items company officials said are designed to help simplify the meal preparation process for busy families.

Among the featured items on display are the 7-in-1 Multi Cooker & Fryer, 10-in-1 Rice & Multi-Cooker and Electric Pressure Cooker.

The products were developed following the completion of various focus groups where consumers said they wanted an item that would allow them to prepare a meal without having to use multiple appliances.

“People told us they did not have a lot of time to get a healthy meal on the table and that they did not have room in their kitchens for multiple appliances,” said Michele Lupton, director of marketing communications for Groupe SEB USA.

The T-Fal’s 7-in-1 Multi Cooker & Fryer includes seven cooking functions that allow the user to deep fry, braise, sauté, simmer, brown, boil pasta and keep food warm. Product features include 1,600-watts of power, 2-liter oil capacity, food capacity of 2.8 lbs. and removable, dishwasher safe bowl with non-stick coating.

The 10-in-1 Rice & Multi Cooker features 10 cook programs that cover an array food including rice, risotto, oatmeal, soup and yogurt. It can also be used as a slow cooker, a vessel to reheat meals, to brown meats and as a baking vessel. The multi cooker’s Fuzzy Logic technology auto-adjusts settings during the cooking process.
