RYE, N.Y.-Jarden Consumer Solutions has aligned its newest product assortment to reflect what it believes will be some of the top trends in 2014: affordable health care and multifunctional products.
Affordable healthcare is a hot topic in American homes and this trend is expected to continue for some time, according to Jarden. "As consumers come to terms with the fact that, to some extent, they must take greater responsibility for managing their health, affordable products for doing so will come to market and permeate American homes more than ever before." In 2014 Jarden will highlight its new Oster Versa Performance Blender 1000 Series, featuring a 1,000-watt motor to grind fresh nut butters, puree preservative-free soups, whip up antioxidant-rich berry sorbets, and churn out protein smoothies or green drinks. Also new from the Oster brand is Juice & Blend 2 Go, with 400 watts of power to extract essential nutrients from fruits and vegetables to serve up fresh juices and blended smoothies directly into a 20-ounce, BPA-free personal blending bottle.
