Kuvings impresses with new REVO 830 juicer

Kuvings regularly showcases its innovative home appliances at global exhibitions, and will thus of course be back in Berlin for IFA 2022. The EVO 820 juicer, which can juice the whole fruit without cutting it, has been recognised as the Best Juicer at several global awards and has established itself as a signature model from Kuvings.

In 2022, Kuvings’ new model, the REVO 830, features upgraded convenience that goes one step further compared to existing products, making it easier to add ingredients and to make premium juice.Kuvings innovate with new feeding chute
The advantage of this Kuvings juicer is that the ingredients can be juiced whole without cutting them. The new model REVO 830 has two types of innovative feeding chutes. There is a 88mm flap gate for whole fruits, as well as a 45mm auto-cut gate for leafy vegetables, like carrots. This is a unique feeding chute from Kuvings that the company claims has never seen before. With these two feeding chutes, the user can quickly insert the right ingredient and juice it in no time.

Smart cutting technique
The REVO 830 juicer mechanism has been re-powered by Kuvings. The upper part of the screw features a smart cutting technique that automatically cuts long leafy vegetables with pinpoint accuracy. The new commercial-grade screw (auger) has a self-cutting top, so that when the user drops carrots, celery and cucumber into the feeding chute, the screw chops the ingredients before pressing.

Juicing fruits and vegetables without trimming the ingredients means that fresh juice can be made by minimising oxidation and browning that occurs when ingredients come into contact with air. The juicing technology, which only requires the user to add ingredients, upgrades the quality of juice as well as convenience for the user too.newly-designed, easy grip Smart Cap makes it easier for the user to mix juice in the bowl, stop drips and you can evenImproved motor durability and strong juicing power
The motor is the most important part of the juicer in terms of juice extraction performance. Kuvings explains that the REVO 830 is equipped with a motor that boasts stronger power than existing products to demonstrate the better juice performance. The durable motor guarantees long-lasting use, and its quietness means users can comfortably juice day or night.

REVO 830 receives awards and praise for its innovative design
The REVO 830 has already been honoured in 2022. The device was recognised at the German Kitchen Innovation Awards, appearing in the small electrical appliances category. The juicer was recognised for excellence in the four areas of functionality, design, various product advantages, and ergonomic design. Kuvings has said that this has strengthened its position as a global brand.

Researching the next big innovation
Every year, Kuvings introduces innovative products to help create a new health culture. The company is also investing heavily in research and development, principally to develop its own technology. We look forward to the future of Kuvings that innovates by developing outstanding technologies to enter the global market. close the cap and do a pre-rinse with water, before cleaning. Even the juicer’s jugs are easy to grip and even easier to store, newly-designed, square and fitting neatly inside each other for easy storage. There is also a wider pulp outlet, which offers maximum pulp ejection capability, making it easier to clean and to ensure the juice and pulp flows effortlessly.

Morphy Richards has unveiled a new brand identity and purpose called “Happiness Engineered”

British small appliance brand Morphy Richards has unveiled a new brand identity and purpose called “Happiness Engineered”.  The new branding includes technical product drawings balanced with creative visuals and illustrations.

The small domestic appliance brand said this redesign was born from a need to clarify the brand’s purpose, as it sought to build a customer-centric organisation with products inspired by insights about things that would make home life happier for consumers.

The company added it is focusing on balancing the technical and creative roots of the business, as a nod to the personalities of Morphy Richards’s founders.

Morphy Richards has unveiled a new brand identity, Happiness Engineered

Richard Ingham, Market Director at Morphy Richards, commented on the change: “Morphy Richards is a household name, something we’re extremely proud of. However, we felt the brand purpose required updating to create clarity and make it more distinctive for consumers.

“We therefore chose to reconnect the brand with its founders in a modern and relevant way to appeal to customers and provide an offering for retailers that stands out from the crowd.

“We work hard to create products built to last that bring authentic, thoughtful, well-made simplicity to life — and make a tangible difference to consumers every day — and now have a brand identity that proudly communicates that.”

Small Domestic Appliances market to expand at CAGR of 5.8% from 2020 to 2030

Transparency Market Research repprts the global small domestic appliances market is estimated to reach €61.8 billion by 2030, developing at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2030, according to new research.

The research firm says factors such as expanding middle class population, discretionary money, and better goods are likely to drive the global small domestic appliances market in the years to come. 

Anurag Singh, CEO at Transparency Market Research, says urbanisation and rapid industrialisation play an important role in boosting economic growth all over the world

The trend of adopting multifunctional appliances to replace conventional appliances is likely to support the growth of the global small domestic appliances market,” said Mr Singh.

“With the development of artificial intelligence in floor care applications, the small home appliance industry is undergoing substantial transformation. AI recognises typical robot trapping barriers and the smart robot technology in vacuum cleaners allows users to clean floors with fewer concerns than before.”

Mr Singh added that cold-pressed juices are becoming increasingly popular among millennials, and they are one of the main growth drivers for the global small domestic appliances market. 

“As a result, small domestic appliance manufacturers are beefing up their R&D capabilities in order to provide strong engines in juicers that save energy.”

Suri,innovative, eco-friendly electric toothbrush

UK-based sustainable wellness brand, Suri, has designed an innovative, eco-friendly electric toothbrush to help combat the carbon footprint of oral care.

Made primarily from plant-based and recyclable materials – bamboo primarily – the new Sustainable Sonic Toothbrush promises “a superior clean with minimal impact on the environment”.

According to the brand, although sales in bamboo manual toothbrushes continue to grow, to date, there hasn’t been an eco-alternative for the thousands of electric toothbrush users in the UK.

Each year, global disposal rates of toothbrushes amount to four billion and almost all models are not recyclable in municipal recycling streams, Suri says. While electric models are proven to help consumers achieve a better clean, reducing plaque by 21% and gingivitis by 11% (Cochrane Review, 2014), unfortunately, they have the worst carbon footprint compared with other toothbrushes.

And although household electrical appliances are small, they make up 2% of landfill waste, and it is estimated that they contribute to 70% of the pollution on land and in water.

Built with a right to repair in mind, the Sustainable Sonic Toothbrush features an aluminium handle and plant-based heads. Unlike other electric models, the body can be easily dismantled for recycling or repair when sent back, the company says.

A lifetime guarantee under a subscription plan also covers the replacement of brush heads every one to three months, as well as free maintenance. Suri provides mail-back recycling for all their products to ensure that none of its brushes ends up in landfills or oceans.

In addition, a long-lasting rechargeable battery powers the toothbrush for 30-plus days between charges, and sonic technology delivers 33,000 brush movements per minute, providing an eco-friendly approach to healthier teeth, a brighter smile, and a clean conscience, the company adds.

Short for “sustainable rituals”, Suri is the brainchild of co-founders Gyve Safavi and Mark Rushmore. The duo spent years working for the multinational personal care and hygiene conglomerate P&G. Harnessing their wealth of experience, Safavi and Rushmore decided it was time to help tackle the industry’s environmental impact through sustainable innovation.

The duo say they are committed to using as many recyclable and biodegradable materials as possible on all of their products while running their business with a net positive environmental impact.

The SURI electric toothbrush is available for pre-order now via the company’s website and will be released in early spring 2022.
