WMF KITCHENminis® – The third generation06/07/2016
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.
Healthy foods, gentle preparation, downsizing and increased efficiency – our carbon footprint is more important than ever, in the spirit of "less is more". The WMF KITCHENminis® were developed with a view to saving space, reducing the use of valuable resources and saving energy. When it comes to modern convenience, easy-to-operate appliances and the option for preparing individual portion sizes are indispensable. The love for detail in terms of the design and functionality of the WMF KITCHENminis®, as well as that little something extra that they offer makes them the perfect companion in the modern kitchen for one and two-person households.
With the new generation of WMF KITCHENminis® you no longer need to rely on frozen ready meals. Preparing fresh food is what the third generation products are all about. Now you can make your own yoghurts at home – sugar and other unwanted ingredients are a thing of the past. You can mix your own smoothie-to-go at the touch of a button just before you leave the house. Thanks to the waterkettle with tea-brewing function, you can brew tea in one step. In the evening you can quickly cook dinner with fish, meat or vegetables on the compact table grill – using little fat of course. And for dessert: freshly prepared ice cream, frozen yoghurt or a tasty cool sorbet.
"The new WMF KITCHENminis® offer the right ingredients to meet our demands for varied cuisine and healthy food preparation. But cooking also has to be easy and fun. This means that our five new WMF KITCHENminis® are high performance appliances despite their compact size. Due to the multitude of options available, they can be used to make breakfast, cook several courses, prepare smaller snacks, appetizers and desserts while using tasty, fresh and healthy ingredients. Our motto is "Get rid of everything you don't need", and that applies as much to the construction of the device itself as it does to the ingredients.” says Martin Ludwig, Managing Director of the Consumer Electric division of WMF Group.
The current WMF KITCHENminis® are also part of a bigger family. Thanks to their sleek lines, high-quality Cromargan® and typical WMF design, they coordinate perfectly with all the other products from the ever-expanding My WMF Cromargan® kitchen range.
WMF KITCHENminis® Yoghurt Maker
When making yoghurt at home you need the right bacterial culture and a stable temperature over a certain period of time, in order to turn milk into a tasty fresh yoghurt. By adding chocolate chips, cocoa, ground nuts, jam or fresh fruit you can tailor your yoghurt to suit your own individual tastes. The space-saving WMF KITCHENminis® Yoghurt Maker from Cromargan® ensures a constant temperature via its electronically-controlled temperature regulator to provide the perfect environment for yoghurt cultures. With an output of 15 watts, the appliance contains three 150 ml mugs made of BPA-free Tritan, which is highly suitable for food since it is taste and odour-neutral. The mugs are also water-tight, so are ideal for when you are on the go. The time remaining is displayed on an LC-screen and an acoustic signal is emitted when the WMF KITCHENminis® Yoghurt Maker automatically switches off. Clever feature: You can write the type of yoghurt and best before date on the writeable lid surface and rub it off easily afterwards. You can buy three additional mugs to supplement the set and stack them away practically inside the cupboard on the lid of the appliance. The integrated cable winder also makes it easy to store away.
The WMF KITCHENminis® Yoghurt Maker will be available from specialist and general retailers from September 2016 at an RRP of EUR 59.99*.
WMF KITCHENminis® Smoothie-to-go
"For when you're on the move"
With an output of 300 watts, the small Smoothie-to-go blender from the WMF KITCHENminis® series operates at a fast 23,000 rpm. The WMF KITCHENminis® Smoothie-to-go is made from fine Cromargan®. The two 600 ml mugs from BPA-free Tritan are fitted with a leak-proof to-go lid with screw fastening. Thanks to WMF Perfect Cut, the 4-wing stainless steel blade offers excellent mixing results, also when using green ingredients and crushing ice. It is very simple and intuitive to operate. To mix the ingredients, simply twist the blender unit onto the filled mug and place it on the blender base. The blender starts to work once you press the starts button and stops as soon as you release it. This makes simple pulsing possible. After mixing, replace the blade unit with the to-go lid and off you go. For safety reasons, the appliance only starts blending when the mug is in place.
Technikzuhause.de confirms the significant savings that are concisely and clearly illustrated through the WMF Green logo: The WMF KITCHENminis® Smoothie-to-go offers a significant 76% saving in terms of space, 77% saving in terms of resources and 25% energy savings compared with the LINEO blender.
The WMF KITCHENminis® smoothie-to-go will be available from specialist and general retailers from October 2016 at an RRP* of EUR 59.99.
WMF KITCHENminis® Glass waterkettle Vario
"Clear as glass"
Glass kettles allow you to look inside and are extremely decorative. The WMF KITCHENminis® Glass waterkettle Vario made from Cromargan® offers much more than this. Its jug is made from high-quality SCHOTT Duran glass, the first choice when it comes to heat resistance and changes in temperature. What's more, it also incorporates a stylish interior light. It has a holding capacity of 1 litre and you can choose between five temperature settings from 60°C to 100°C. There is also a boil function, which is ideal for baby food or for when you need water that is virtually germ-free or free of calcareous substances. With an output of 1.900 watts, the compact WMF KITCHENminis® Glass waterkettle Vario quickly brings the water to the desired temperature but doesn't take up much space in the kitchen. The additional tea-brewing function offers even greater space savings as you do not need a teapot. Tea drinkers will be really happy – included in the delivery is a removable aroma micro strainer made from Cromargan® and an integrated teabag holder. You can pre-programme any the desired temperature setting on your WMF KITCHENminis® Glass waterkettle Vario.
technikzuhause.de has also established considerable savings offered by the WMF KITCHENminis® Glass waterkettle Vario. The WMF KITCHENminis® Glass waterkettle Vario requires 32% less space and uses 18% less resources and 52% less energy compared with the WMF LONO kettle.

WMF KITCHENminis® Table grill for 2
"Let's get grilling"
Quicker grilling just for two? Now you no longer need to get the big family-sized grill out of the cellar. The decorative Table grill for 2 from the WMF KITCHENminis® series is the space-saving version for the smaller kitchen. Its small size however does not mean that compromises have been made in terms of quality and performance. The vegetable frying pan is an added extra. It can be used to grill meat and vegetables together without them coming into contact with each other. Therefore when cooking vegetarian or vegan food, your vegetables can simply sizzle away in the vegetable frying pan. The variable temperature control is illuminated using LED. The heating plate with integrated heat element can be also removed from this 1,000 watt mini table grill made from stylish Cromargan®. It is very easy to clean thanks to the non-stick coating and is dishwasher safe. This also prevents food from burning onto the surface. Likewise, you do not need oil or fat to grill fish, meat and vegetables. Grilling with an electric grill is a modern, healthy and extremely low-fat form of cooking. Excess fat from the meat drains off and is collected in a drip tray. The drip tray on the WMF KITCHENminis® Table grill for 2 is also removable and is dishwasher safe.
The WMF KITCHENminis® Table grill for 2 offers huge savings in all areas. According to technikzuhause.de, compared with the LONO Table grill flat/ribbed it requires 69% less space, uses 54% less resources and offers a huge energy saving of 51%.
The WMF KITCHENminis® Table grill for 2 will be available from specialist and general retailers from October 2016 at an RRP* of EUR 69.99.
WMF KITCHENminis® Ice Cream Maker 3in1
"Good things come in threes"
Need to cool down? How about a freshly-prepared pistachio ice cream or a delicious mango sorbet? By stirring together different ingredients and simultaneously mixing in air and cooling down the mixture you can conjure up delicious ice-based creations using the compact ice machine in just a matter of minutes. Depending on the ingredients and the length of time, you can use this method to create frozen yoghurt, sorbet or ice cream. When freshly stirred, the ice mixture is very airy and fluffy, meaning that you do not need to use any (artificial) stabilisers. The WMF KITCHENminis® Ice Cream Maker 3in1 made from Cromargan® enables passive cooling through a cooling block located in the ice container. This makes the appliance a lot smaller, and it is easier to remove the individual parts and accessories. This also means it is easier to clean. The cooler is cooled to -18°C either in the freezer compartment or in the deep freeze before use and can be used to freeze food straight away. Place the rotating stirrer in the pre-cooled ice bowl that holds up to 300 ml and add the desired ingredients. The WMF KITCHENminis® Ice Cream Maker 3in1 has an output of just 12 watts and produces three different types of frozen dessert: frozen yoghurt, sorbet and ice cream. You can see the time remaining via the countdown function on the LC display. Simply store the stirred and cooled ice mixture until you are ready to eat it – a matching lid and a WMF ice cream spoon are included, making storing and serving portions even easier.
The WMF KITCHENminis® Ice Cream Maker 3in1 will be available from specialist and general retailers from October 2016 at an RRP of EUR 69.99*.
