THE Panasonic Breakfast Collection is a new range of small kitchen appliances that includes a toaster, kettle and coffeemaker.
Unveiled at CES 2013, these feature bold and ambitious design aesthetics, offering new form and functionality to kitchen appliances.
"With our new Breakfast Collection, Panasonic aimed to create functional small kitchen appliances that offer sleek, modern looks for today's kitchens," said Nicholas Monaco, product manager for small appliances at the Panasonic Consumer Marketing Company of North America, in a press release.
The NT-ZP1 toaster is designed with transparent glass and stainless steel, adding a touch of elegance to the appliance. The toaster displays seven browning levels, reheat and defrost indicators directly onto the glass front in blue LEDs while convenient controls allow for easy selection of menu items.
As Panasonic knows that not all bread slices are the same, the toaster is equipped with ultra-wide bread slots to fit even thicker cuts of bread or bagels, and offers a built-in warming rack that is ideal for keeping buns and croissants warm prior to eating.
It's a match
Panasonic's NC-ZF1 coffeemaker fuses well-engineered design with modern functionality. Featuring a strong cubic shape and a high-quality stainless steel and glass finish, the appliance complements any kitchen style.
For single users or families who enjoy different strengths of coffee, an Aroma Selector allows for easy adjustment of water flow into the pot, making coffee stronger or milder.
The coffeemaker also features an easy-to-see water level gauge on the exterior, a transparent blue LED to indicate power and a convenient paperless filter.
Finally, the NC-ZK1 electric kettle by Panasonic offers users a quick and easy way to boil water.
With a 1.4l water capacity, the kettle is designed with high-quality stainless steel on both the interior and exterior, which can help keep water warm longer.
A pop-open top makes filling water a cinch and an ergonomic handle and spout makes it easy to pour water without spilling.
And family-friendly features include a cool-touch exterior and automatic shut-off. The Panasonic Breakfast Collection appliances will be available in May in two colour options - violet or smoke.
