Two products from WÜSTHOF, a Norwalk company, were selected as Finalists for the Cutlery & Cutting Tools category at the prestigious 2014 Housewares Design Awards. This means that they are in the running for the “Best of the Best” Awards that will be given to the best housewares products of the year at the Gold, Silver and Bronze levels.The Finalists are:
Classic 9-inch Double Serrated Bread Knife
Wüsthof’s Classic 9-inch Double Serrated Bread Knife features an additional serration inside the knife’s traditional serrations. The new technology is said to reduce the number of crumbs produced while slicing through loaves of bread and can also be used for delicate ingredients, such as tomatoes or melons. The knife’s design also ensures that the interior serration never hits the cutting surface, which is said to leave the blade sharper for longer.
Gourmet 8-inch Vegetable Knife
Wüsthof’s Gourmet 8-inch Vegetable Knife features a wide and rounded blade to promote a “rocking” motion while cutting for what is said to be faster and more precise prepping of large and small vegetables. Holes near the blade’s edge and a raised, narrow ridge above it reduce friction and allow ingredients to easily slide off the blade.
The Housewares Design Awards is the industry’s premier independent awards competition. Winners will be announced at the Housewares Design Awards presentation ceremony and luncheon on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 at the New York Marriott Marquis.
An independent panel of judges selected these WÜSTHOF products as finalists based on their superior design, appearance, function and originality. The Housewares Design Awards are presented by HomeWorld Business and sponsored by NY Now®, Gourmet Insider Magazine and Whitford Corporation. Product submission and judging process is managed by Housewares Design Awards LLC.For more information, visit www.housewaresdesignawards.com.
