Lifetime Brands has introduced the KitchenAid No-Mess No-Stress collection of kitchen tools and gadgets. According to the company, the collection includes a garlic press, citrus squeezer, fruit slicer, rotary grater, and can opener that are designed to help minimize handling of food, reduce strain and fatigue, and simplify cleanup.
With a cast aluminum handle and pusher, KitchenAid said that its No-Mess No-Stress garlic press crushes garlic and extracts pulp while keeping juices and garlic away from hands and surfaces. Once the peeled garlic is in the hopper and pressed down, the crushed garlic and juices stay put. The press has a suggested retail price of $19.99.
Also crafted from cast aluminum is the No-Mess No-Stress citrus squeezer that is designed to sit on a countertop or table during use. According to KitchenAid, the squeezer reduces the effort needed to complete the task. The head is designed to catch squeezed juice in the base of the hopper, leaving pulp and pits in the strainer, while the built-in spout allows for spill-free pouring of the juice. It has a suggested retail price of $19.99.
Another item in the new collection is the fruit slicer with cherry and olive pitter, which is designed for slicing soft fruits, vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, and cheeses for garnishes and salads. As the food is being sliced, it stays upright on the platform for dispensing, while juices drain into the hopper below. This dual-function tool also pits cherries and olives, leaving pits in the hopper below for disposal. It has a suggested retail price of $14.99.
Designed for grating cheese, chocolate, or vegetables, the No-Mess No-Stress grater features an ultra-sharp etched blade that glides effortlessly through hard and semi-soft cheeses as well as hard chocolate. Grated food is dispensed in the barrel beneath and can be grated directly over a dish or cooking vessel. The included cap keeps contents inside. It has a suggested retail price of $17.99.
Finally, the KitchenAid No-Mess No-Stress can opener is designed for use with various sized cans and has an oversized, soft-grip knob. Use the magnetic lid remover to keep hands clean and away from sharp edges of the cut lid. This dual-function can opener also has an integrated bottle opener for added convenience. It has a suggested retail price of $17.99.
