Home & Housewares Show Preview in NYC


We couldn't make it to the Home and Housewares Trade Show in Chicago, so we were very excited when T-fal, Rowenta and Krups hosted a viewing of their latest and innovative products in NYC.

Whether it's for travel or to make life easier, I was very impressed by the selection of products on display that included a cool collection of coffeemakers, irons, juice makers, and even a grilled cheese maker. Here are some of my favorite products from the show.


T-fal had tons of innovative products on display to making cooking easier. I loved learning more about the T-fal ActiFry, a unique kitchen appliance that is engineered with heat-pulse technology to make cooking faster and healthier since it requires less oil. I was also loving the juicer by T-fal that instantly grins up whole fruits and vegetables so families can make a healthy juice in the comfort of their homes.


Coffee lovers will delight with the selection of coffeemakers from Krups. I was in awe of the Barista EA9000 One-Touch Cappuccino Machine, a fully automatic coffeemaker that caters to the performance of each customer. At the event, I sampled a delicious latte that the machine handled with ease by grinding the beans, frothing the milk and dispensing the coffee. At $2,499.99, this machine is not for a major coffee lover that wants an efficient all in-one-machine. A more affordable model is the Grind & Brew Coffee Maker with its LCD display and timer settings and their collection of tea kettles, including a Personal Tea Kettle that features an angled spout for easy pouring. Krups also introduced a new colorful line with their immersion blends and grinders. I loved the bright colors like Tomato Red, Granny Apple Green, Blueberry and Cappuccino that would make a nice addition in anyone's kitchen.


Rowenta, the leading manufacturer of steam irons and steamers, introduced a fun selection of products at the show. I was impressed by the Eco Intelligence Iron, a steam iron that saves energy and the Delta Force Stick Vacuum, a machine that picks-up 99% of dust on hard floors. I watched it in action as a Rowenta representative placed oatmeal on the floor. The vacuum instantly picked up the dry oats with his suction canals. I also loved how it is a wireless and no bag option that simply uses a charger to power up. Their First Class Travel Iron was also amazing that includes a bag to carry it and features stainless steel to provide an incredible glide.
