NEW YORK–Four companies were presented with Best New Product Awards at The Gourmet Housewares Show, with Joseph Joseph receiving Best of Show honors for its Triscale kitchen scale.
Awards also were presented in three product-specific categories, including cooking, dining and kitchen preparation. Winners and finalists in each category were selected by a panel of editors based on innovative design, creative use of materials/construction, and use of new materials/technology.
The winner in the cooking segment was Key Ingredient for its Recipe Reader, an electronic recipe resource. Ginsey Home Solutions was the dining winner for its Freeform Tray, a place setting that switches to a versatile tray by simply picking it up. MOLECULE-R Flavors Inc. won in the kitchen prep category for its Cuisine R-EVOLUTION, a molecular gastronomy kit.
“The second annual sold-out Gourmet Housewares Show provided the judges with a teeming selection of innovative products deserving recognition,” said Marc Delman, national sales manager, Gourmet Housewares Show. “The selected products stood out from others for a high level of purposeful design.”
The Gourmet Housewares Show runs through today at the New York International Gift Fair at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
