Crate & Barrel is gearing up for fall by updating its assortment of kitchenware with several exclusive items from well-known brands.
New products from All-Clad and KitchenAid are now available to shoppers who are looking to give their home food and beverage prep an update with new items that meet current-day trends highlighted by the retailer, which are listed below
• Coffee Shops at Home: The new rituals and routines that were created while Americans worked from home, such as savoring their home-crafted cup of coffee or fancy espresso drink, will continue even as they head back to the office. Crate & Barrel’s new KitchenAid Espresso Machine & Burr Grinder in Milkshake are the perfect pair to meet your at-home coffee needs.
Sold separately but designed to work together, the set offers 70 settings designed to make the grounds needed for a variety of coffees.
The Espresso Machine is equipped with dual, smart temperature sensors that communicate with each other through the brewing process. The flat base, commercial-grade portafilter enables easier tamping of the grounds while the commercial-grade diameter helps maintain optimal heat through extraction.
Additionally, the steam wand delivers steam for creating rich foam or warm milk for cappuccinos or lattes or dispenses hot water for teas and other beverages.
The Burr Grinder has a built-in portafilter holder that grinds directly into the portafilter. The automatic smart dosing technology is said to provide more consistent amounts of grounds, and the anti-static technology works to make less mess for users.
• The Gifts That Keep Giving: During the pandemic, gift-giving opportunities and overall gifting were at a minimum. Looking ahead to special moments in time such as hostess gifts, gifting new homeowners, birthdays, holidays and weddings will bring more people together and create gifting opportunities.
Crate & Barrel experts said they started to see this trend with spending on Father’s Day gifts increasing drastically compared to last year. For those looking to splurge, the new All-Clad HA1 Curated Cookware is a new option that is now available.
The items in the 10-pc set come with stainless steel lids and handles designed for ease of use around the kitchen. Each pan also offers a long-lasting durable nonstick coating.
• Kitchen as a Living Space: The kitchen has always been the place to gather and consumers are now using their appliances as statement decor pieces. Items such as the new KitchenAid Light & Shadow Mixer Collection feature a new colorway with distinctive studded texture features that play off the shadows and light of day and night.
The shades of black and white tap into Crate & Barrel’s design ethos with its warm white finish inspired by milkshakes and wrapped in a glossy graphite band, reflecting light in interesting ways.
The mixer comes with stainless steel tools and two bowl options: black studded ceramic or black stainless steel. The ceramic bowl is textured with three-dimensional studs while the black stainless steel bowl reflects or absorbs light as the sun rises and sets.
