STAMFORD, Conn., March 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today announced it will expand its portfolio of kitchen appliances, empowering consumers to cook healthy, satisfying meals the whole family will love. Debuting at this year's International Home and Housewares Show from March 5-8 in Chicago, IL, are the new Philips Smoke-less Indoor Grill and Philips MicroJuicer; developed for busy home cooks to create consistent, quality food with ease and simplicity.
"We have found that one common misconception around home cooking is that it takes a lot of time; and as a result, many households choose to take out rather than eating in," said Maartje Loomans, Marketing Director for Philips Domestic Appliances. "With the collection of meaningful, innovative kitchen appliances from Philips, it's easier than ever to cook healthy, homemade meals every day. Our products help families maintain a healthy diet while spending quality time together at home."
Deliciously healthy, grilled food with virtually no smoke
Grilling is a great option for cooking healthy meals quickly and easily, without compromising on taste. With the new Philips Smoke-less Grill, grilling isn't dependent on the weather – it's an everyday option for families. Thanks to advanced infrared heat technology and a distinctive product design, the Philips Smoke-less Grill makes grilling indoors a comfortable experience, while ensuring flavorful food that is deliciously seared on the outside and tender on the inside.
The Philips Smoke-less Grill combines advanced infrared heat technology with a unique design, to minimize the smoke produced (up to 80% less¹), while still preserving the irresistible taste and tenderness of grilled food. With a constant perfect temperature of 446°F (230°C), the specially designed reflectors direct heat towards the food for even browning on all sides, while ensuring food is not cooked in its own grease, for lean grilling.
Squeeze all the goodness from fruits and vegetables right into your glass
The new Philips MicroJuicer is the key to getting the whole family to enjoy a healthy volume of fruits and vegetables, without even knowing it. The Philips MicroJuicer achieves maximum, hassle-free nutrition daily by efficiently extracting up to 90%2 of the juice in fruits and vegetables. It creates juice so tasty that friends and family will be asking for seconds.
Featuring MicroMasticating technology, the Philips MicroJuicer produces high quality, nutritional juice with a smooth and silky texture. The unique design juices directly into your glass, helping families get a healthy dose of vitamins and nutrients in minutes. The compact size optimizes space on the kitchen counter and offers a sieve-free QuickClean and pre-clean function, for complete cleaning in less than 60 seconds.
A healthy and homemade alternative to fried food with less fat and oil
The Philips Avance Collection Airfryer XL is changing the way home cooks fry, bake, roast and grill. It uses revolutionary, unique Rapid Air technology to deliver great tasting results with up to 70%3 less fat. Rapid Air technology circulates hot air with speed and precision, allowing home cooks to make their favorite foods – from healthy appetizers, to entrees and even desserts – in minutes, with just a tablespoon of oil or less.
