The retail shift from holiday shopping to football has started with Bed Bath & Beyond among the first national chains to promote select kitchen electrics that will cook snacks and sandwiches to enjoy when watching many big pro and college games in the coming weeks.
Among the new items is the Crock-Pot Cook & Carry 4-quart slow cooker. Priced at $39.99, the unit allows the home chef to cook and transport food to tailgates, picnics and the homes of friends and family. It is designed with a secure-fitting lid and locking system that helps prevents leaks and spills while on the go.
Programmable control allows for a customized cook time between 30 minutes and 20 hours, and a digital countdown display easily monitors and tracks cook time. The stoneware and lid are both dishwasher safe.
Also new at Bed Bath & Beyond is the George Foreman 9-serving electric grill. Priced at $79.99, the grill offers a cooking surface of 120-square inches providing enough space to cook burgers, chicken, fish and vegetables.
The classic grill plates feature the “Advanced George Tough” nonstick coating that offers enhanced durability and is PFOA-free while the adjustable cooking angle allows the home cook to tilt the grilling surface to remove excess fat during the cooking process.
For those seeking to offer a selection of fried foods without the guilt of deep frying, Bed Bath & Beyond is offering the new Zavor Crunch Air Fryer Oven in black. Priced at $159.99, the multi-functional unit allows the home chef to air fry, rotisserie, dehydrate, serve as a toaster oven, roast and provide the features of a convection oven.
The convection technology is designed to circulate heat inside the 12.7-quart cavity rather than through a stand-alone heating element. Hot air circulates around foods to cook them in a uniform fashion, avoiding uncooked bottoms and overcooked tops.
The air fryer is offered with 2 non-stick cooking trays, a non-stick drip tray, a stainless steel rotisserie basket, stainless steel forks, a rotisserie spit, a retrieval tool and an E-recipe book with more than 20 delicious recipes.
