Jarden Consumer Solutions Reveals 2014 Consumer Products Trends

Global consumer products leader, Jarden Consumer Solutions, is revealing top trends in consumer products for 2014. With such noted brands as FoodSaver®, Margaritaville®, and Oster® among its family of brands, Jarden Consumer Solutions is also providing a glimpse at some of its most anticipated products for the coming year and the measurable benefits they will bring to consumers’ lives.

TREND #1: AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE HITS HOME

Affordable healthcare is a hot topic in American homes and this trend is expected to continue for some time. 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. Coming in 2014:

  • Offered at a fraction of the cost of comparable blenders, the new Oster® Versa® Performance Blender 1000 Series (MSRP: $149.99) will feature a healthy blend of power, precision and value! At last, powerful performance will be within reach for consumers! Its 1,000-watt motor will grind fresh nut butters, puree preservative-free soups, whip up antioxidant-rich berry sorbets, and churn out protein smoothies or green drinks effortlessly to meet the most demanding nutritional goals. Accessories include a 5-cup food processor, and two 20-oz Blend ‘N Go cups which can perform double duty as water bottles throughout the day.
  • Also from the Oster® brand, a juicer/smoothie maker designed for enjoying healthy drinks on-the-go! The Oster® Juice & Blend 2 Go (MSRP: $49.99) boasts 400 watts of power to extract essential nutrients from fruits and vegetables to serve up fresh juices and blended smoothies directly into a 20-oz, BPA-free personal blending bottle. Add high protein Greek yogurt, protein powder, or natural boosters to create a balanced snack or meal.

TREND #2: DOUBLE DUTY IS THE NEW BASIC

The coming year will see yesterday’s kitchen basics performing double duty. In addition to saving time and money, kicked up gadgets for cooking and entertaining will offer extra benefits for enhancing consumers’ lives. By facilitating quality time spent with friends and family, this handful of household heroes will inspire consumers to cook, entertain, relax, and create lasting memories more than ever:

  • Hailed as the first-ever fully automatic “shave, blend n’ serve” machine, the Margaritaville® Cargo Bali Frozen Concoction Maker (MSRP: $499.99) will dispense freshly blended restaurant-quality drinks in minutes, with the push of a lever. As the expert in frozen drinks, this machine will offer perfectly proportioned, pre-programmed cycles for ‘Ritas, Daiquiris, Coladas and Smoothies. Create a half or full chamber, serving 30 ounces or 60 ounces, respectively, at a time.
  • Helping consumers save enough money each year to take the family on an extra vacation, the FoodSaver® brand will continue to set the standard in food preservation options with its FoodSaver® V2300 and V2500 Vacuum Sealers (MSRP: $79.99-$99.99). Featuring new technology for reducing bag waste to save consumers even more money, these systems are sleek and compact, and have easy-to-use manual controls to effectively preserve meats, poultry, seafood, vegetables and leftovers five times longer than traditional storage methods.
