NOVATO, Calif., Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Higher performance with less effort – no wonder ratchet handles are trending in contemporary kitchenware design. Kuhn Rikon makes food prep easier and more fun with updated kitchen essentials featuring highly efficient ratchet handles that you simply push back and forth instead of turning (http://tinyurl.com/ppdhzye). 

These Swiss-designed tools offer superior performance and are easier to operate, especially for those whose hands are weak or less limber.

The Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Grinder combines a high performance ratchet mechanism with a ceramic stone grinder, making it ideal for those who want more flavor fast.  Instead of twisting and turning, simply push the lever back and forth to release freshly ground pepper, salt or other dried spices. Attractive new look – in black, white, red or green – makes a style statement on the table or countertop.

Sporting a ratchet mechanism instead of a pump or ripcord, the Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Salad Spinner spins faster, removing more water with fewer, easier strokes.  The first salad spinner on the market with a high-efficiency vertical ratchet, it spins produce dry with just two or three back and forth strokes.  Designed for ergonomic comfort, it comes with a handy brake to stop spinning and has a generous 16-cup capacity. 

The new Ratchet Grater features a highly efficient ratchet mechanism that is easier on the hands, so grating cheese, chocolate or nuts is a breeze.  Simply insert cheese in the grinder's easy-to-open door.  Then move the ratchet back and forth to activate the super sharp stainless blades inside.  Perfectly grated cheese will neatly fall from the grater onto your dish. 

Go easy on your hands when you open cans or pop tabs with the Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Safety LidLifter.  The revolutionary LidLifter design, combined with Kuhn Rikon's ergonomic ratchet mechanism, makes opening cans clean, safe and fun. Patented mechanism leaves no sharp edges once the can is opened, for greater safety and hygiene.  Attached mini-pliers lift the lid cleanly and easily once it has been cut from the can, so lids are removed without ever touching the contents.  It also includes a built-in pop tab opener.
