Benton Harbor-based KitchenAid Thursday unveiled its first Cordless Collection of countertop appliances, featuring a hand blender, a 5-cup food chopper, and a 7-speed hand mixer. The products will be available this spring.
The Cordless Collection by KitchenAid includes a charger that works with each product. The three new appliances can charge from empty to full in two hours or less. A battery indicator light signals when it’s time to charge the lithium-ion battery.
The Cordless Collection comes in seven colors including black matte, blue velvet, empire red, matte charcoal grey, onyx black, passion red, and white. Appliance users are able to control where they cook without the hassle of a cord and also keep their countertops clutter-free.
“With the new Cordless Collection, the kitchen is no longer bound by outlets and plugs,” says Nikki Lockett, U.S. marketing leader for small appliances at KitchenAid. “KitchenAid is transforming the kitchen by enabling makers to go cordless so they can cook whatever and however they choose.”
The cordless hand blenders range in price from $99.99 to $149.99, can blend as many as 25 bowls of soup on a full charge, and features a four-point stainless steel blade design and a variable-speed trigger.
The 5-cup chopper retails for $99.99, has two speed settings, chops up to 40 onions on a full charge (11 on a 10-minute quick charge), and has a whisking accessory.
Also retailing for $99.99 is the new 7-speed hand mixer. It is capable of making up to 200 cookies on a single charge and includes a Sort Start feature than brings beaters up to speed gradually to help prevent ingredients from splattering. It also has a beater ejector button and is designed to stand all on its own without the stainless steel beaters resting on a bowl or workspace.
