The Calphalon brand continues to expand its presence in the countertop kitchen electrics category with the debut of the Performance Cool Touch Countertop Oven.
Product suppliers such as Newell Brands, the parent company of Calphalon, have over the past year continued to expand their assortments of countertop ovens, which are multi-functional and allow consumers to use one item to meet a variety of cooking needs.
The new Calphalon oven features an innovative exterior that stays up to 75% cooler during the cooking process when compared to a previous model from the brand.
While the outside of the unit may be cooler to the touch, things are hotter inside. The countertop oven is equipped with advanced Quartz Heat Technology said to deliver 40% more even heat when compared to a conventional tube heating element.
“We designed the outside of the oven to stay cool without sacrificing high-level heat on the inside, to deliver a high-performance oven that allows the whole family to safely join in the kitchen,” said Tim Anderson, director of Brand Marketing, Cooking Appliances, Newell Brands.
A unique feature of the oven is the ability to program back-to-back cooking functions at one time. For example, this allows the home chef to set the bake feature for 30 minutes and then finish with the broil feature for 5 minutes without have to adjust the setting.
Additional features include an easy-to-clean nonstick interior, two rack positions for more precise cooking and an interior light. Accessories include a baking pan, 12-inch pizza pan, dehydrate basket, wire rack and crumb tray. The oven features 12 cooking functions that include toast, bagel, bake, roast, broil, pizza, cookies, reheat, dehydrate, keep warm, defrost and bread proof.
