Geislingen/Steige – The traditional ground-breaking ceremony marked the start of the construction work to expand the production facilities at the WMF knife forge in Hayingen. The construction work takes account of the high demand for high-quality knives that are "made in Germany" with patented Performance Cut technology from the WMF Group, as a result of which larger production facilities are required. Stiftung Warentest declared the forged steel WMF knives from Hayingen as the sharpest knives in Germany in a recent test.
The next big thing right down to the smallest detail
Berlin, IFA 2016 – The compact WMF KITCHENminis® have won their place in many hearts and kitchens in recent years. They impress with a wide range of space-saving appliances. Developed for smaller households, they have primarily found their niche among city dwellers. Five new WMF KITCHENminis® are now available, in the breakfast range, as clever helpers for preparing food and also as attractive table companions for your cosy dinner for two. The product range therefore now includes a total of 15 mini kitchen appliances of various kinds incorporating new innovations that meet the latest trends in nutrition. With or without meat, with plenty of fresh local produce – the options for preparing healthy and enjoyable food at home just got bigger. With this in mind, the new WMF KITCHENminis® help to promote the rediscovered awareness for cooking in the home: home-made meals just taste better, and by avoiding the use of any unnecessary ingredients they are healthier as well.
When developing the new additions to the range, particular focus was again given to ensuring maximum functionality even though the appliances are more compact. Importance was given to keeping the use of space, energy and resources to a minimum. The third generation WMF KITCHENminis® offer something new: Yoghurt Maker, Smoothie-to-go mixer, the compact glass waterkettle Vario with integrated tea-brewing function, space-saving Table grill for 2 and the Ice Cream Maker 3in1 for three different types of frozen dessert.
