The Philips Robust Collection range of kitchen appliances being demonstrated at IFA

Our crew on the ground at IFA, though not exactly master chefs, still know a good kitchen appliance when they see one. And they were very impressed by a demo of the Philips Robust Collection, five premium kitchen appliances fashioned from modern materials such as shockproof glass, plastics and metal die cast, with couplings made of Zytel plastic, a light metal replacement used by BMW and Mercedes for their sports cars. The result is a blender, food processor, hand blender, juicer and mixer that Philips says proved virtually unbreakable in drop tests, as well as looking good in any modern kitchen.  Read More

The Veggie-Peel traps and stores messy peel for easy disposal

A vegetable peeler that traps and stores the peel for easy disposal into a composting bin, trash can or garbage disposal unit should win praise from cooks trying to keep their kitchens hygienically clean and tidy. Aptly named the Veggie-Peel, this kitchen gadget has a curved, rubberized non-slip handle and is ambidextrous, too, because of its double-sided stainless steel blade.  Read More

The Amana Jot Refrigerator makes punishment easy too

There’s no doubt the refrigerator is the central hub of the kitchen, serving more than its primary purpose of keeping things cold. In recent years we’ve seen fridge manufacturers pack their products with all manner of technological additions, from iPod docks to touch screens and TVs.
