Storage to the Rescue
Storage is evolving to solve today’s lifestyle dilemmas. If it’s true that housing is in such turmoil that moving isn’t in the cards, consumers are going to have to make the most of the space they have. One area of housewares that has become increasingly innovative is storage, and new products have emerged to make the point.
Take Pantree, for example. The company recently released Pantree Plus (pictured), an attachement for its Pantree kitchenware organizer that allows consumers to hold up to eight commonly used cooking utensils, like stirring spoons, spatulas, tongs and oven mitts. The manufacturer’s suggested selling price is $4.95.
Then there’s obesity. Consumers eat more when they eat out, so Rubber-maid is fighting the battle of the bulge with Mini TakeAlongs food-storage containers in one- and two-cup sizes that help control serving size.
