After initially launching at last year’s International Home + Housewares Show, Maker Homeware, a division of Iris USA, is now bringing new cookware introductions to the 2016 show.
The division is introducing steam grills, stainless steel cookware and more. The round and rectangular steam grill pans feature a tempered glass lid, which locks in steam for up to 35% faster cooking times, said the company. The pans come in a choice of midnight black or copper bronze.
Coated with the company’s non-stick Ceramtec ceramic coating, these pans offer easy release of foods, the company said. Reservoirs in the sides of the pans allow excess fats and oils to seep away from the foods. Available now, suggested retail prices are $89.99 for the rectangular and $99.99 for the round steam grill pans.
Maker Homeware will also be presenting its new line of SmartSteam pans. Available in six different sizes, including both shallow and classic shapes, these pans utilize SmartSteam technology to lock in foods’ natural moisture, allowing the user to cook using less water and oil, according to Maker.
“The design of the SmartSteam pans really changes the way you cook,” said Al Muto, general manager for Maker Homeware. “You control the smart steaming process. You can keep in the moisture from your food, which helps retain more of the food’s nutrients. Food cooks more thoroughly, so the inside remains nice and moist, while the outside is nicely done.”
Also focusing on the healthy cooking trend, the company’s SmartSteam assortment is coated with non-stick Ceramtec ceramic coating. Available now, suggested retail prices range from $79.99 to $124.99.
The company will also showcase its line of ceramic coated stainless steel cookware. Composed of 18/10 tri-ply clad stainless steel with an aluminum core, the pans offer durability and superior heat conductivity, according to the company. The cookware is coated with the company’s non-stick Ceramtec ceramic coating. The handle has been ergonomically designed for a comfortable grip, and a majority of the pans come with sturdy, tempered glass lids.
The ceramic coated stainless steel line offers a full range of open stock pieces and a 10-piece set. Available now, suggested retail prices range from $64.99 to $499.99.
