The sale process is in the early stages, the sources said, with management taking initial meetings with potential bidders. The company has roughly $75 million in annual earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, the sources said. After being spun off from Corning, World Kitchen was acquired by Borden for about $600 million, according to reports at the time. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2002 and underwent financial reorganization. It is now backed by W Capital Partners and Oaktree Capital Partners. The company makes products such as dinnerware, kitchen tools, cutlery and storage. World Kitchen, Baird and W Capital Partners declined to comment.

A high-tech food scale lets users scan their food for nutritional information including calories, carbs, fats, and more. Anything that you can see on a USDA label, all the different fibers, sugars, explained The Orange Chef Companys Michael Tankenoff. The Quick Whip is a huge time saver for anybody who wants to make their own whipped cream and another gadget can help you remove seeds from a pomegranate with the whack of a spoon. A choco-nut cheese grater does a lot more than grate cheese. Here we have dark chocolate on one side and we have nuts on the other, one vendor told CBS 2s Hsu.

Posted by LinYee Yuan | 19 Mar 2013 | Comments (0) A wall garden from our friends at Urbio As Americans become more conscious of food politics and increasingly seek out local ingredients, one of my favorite trends of recent years is countertop gardening kits. What's more local than your own kitchen? Perfect for small spaces and urban dwellers, the idea of growing your own greens indoors is not new, but the most recent offerings are less complicated and more thoughtfully designed. As we reported last week with Click and Grow's , designers have invested time into creating beautiful countertop gardening systems that turn the blackest thumbs, green. I particularly love the Grow Green terracotta boxes from Swedish design duo, Cult Design.

Nearly 3,000 companies from 39 nations displayed their wares at the fair, at which hundreds of new items are unveiled annually. Household scales were popular this year, with many companies offering supersensitive digital scales, including one with a memory. With a flick of a switch, the new Krups Fitcontrol Memo will tell you what you weighed the last time you weighed yourself. Flick another switch and you'll get your current weight. Soehnle, also a German company, introduced a tabletop digital scale for weighing items as light as 2 grams or as heavy as 1,000 grams, perfect for use as a postage and a kitchen scale.
