B&D re-launches InfraWave oven PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tom Philp   

TORONTO - Busy consumers, take note. Power tool and home appliance giant Black & Decker has reintroduced the public to its new InfraWave Speed Oven, a kitchen product the company claims will cut cooking times in half.

Using this patented technology, the new B&D speed oven claims to cook up to 50 per cent faster than ovens using more conventional microwave technology, with no pre-heating. The oven also saves consumers time and energy costs by automatically selecting both ideal times and temperatures for cooking selected foods evenly.

Owners can program their oven to "know" how to cook items placed in it, allowing the unit itself to set cooking time and correct temperature. Consumers may also choose the cooking "alert" feature that notifies them when product finishes like "rare" or "crispy" are reached.

The unit has a capacity of 0.7 cu. ft, a digital touch pad and display, and a standard sliding crumb tray.

The new Black & Decker InfraWave Speed Oven is available at now at Canadian Tire, at a suggested retail price of $149. Kabani said the company plans to launch it in Canadian Wal-mart and Sears stores in September.

Both companies maintain web sites that can be found at and

CNW Salvation donation (PD30Jul15)

Some 120 people from across the industry took part in the recent annual golf tournament hosted by Cantrex Nationwide at the Copper Creek Golf Course in Kleinberg, Ontario, just north of Toronto. As has become its usual practise the event benefits a local charity, in this case the Salvation Army. At right, Jeannine Ghaleb, CNW’s president and COO is seen presenting a cheque for $10,000 to the army’s Captain Rick Zelinsky.
