This year’s International Home and Housewares Show presented many great products and one of my favorite small electrics at the show was the Hurom Slow Juicer/Smoothie machine which introduces one of the most outstanding hybrid machines on display (other brands have tried these types of items in the marketplace with mixed results). Instead of embarking on a new smoothie machine, the company took advantage of the two chute design and added a shut off valve switch to allow for mixing of fruits and veggies along with yogurts, milk or cream right inside of the machine. This will not likely appeal to those of us who like to incorporate crushed ice into our smoothies, but may appeal to consumers who wish to enter the juicing realm, but who like the variety the machine has to offer.
Reusable Recyclables were present in many areas as products such as food and beverage containers are continuing to be introduced as BPA-free with the added attraction of including recycled plastics. Of note are Aladdin’s adult lunch kits and beverage containers and beautiful colorful bags, bento boxes, and lunch box kits that can accomodate multi-layer salads, hot and cold foods, condiments and beverages. These are the new trendy must haves as more people attuned to tighter budgets have now started to bring lunch to work each day.
