Three Minneapolis-area Companies Named Finalists for 2014 Housewares Design Awards

Three Minneapolis-area companies have been named as finalists for the 2014 Housewares Design Awards, competing for "Best in Category" and "Best of the Best" honors as the best housewares products of the year. Winners will be announced on February 4, 2014.

The finalists are: 
Escali for its Escali SmartConnect Kitchen Scale in the Countertop Food Prep Appliances category

Escali’s SmartConnect Kitchen Scale can sync to Escali’s SmartConnect app to provide access to features on an interactive touch screen display. The scale features Bluetooth SMART technology which sends wireless measurements to the SmartConnect app on the user’s mobile device, where it can instantly analyze nutritional content and save actual portion sizes into a food journal. The black glass scale features a large backlight display, is fully functional without the app, has a built-in kitchen timer and can weigh up to 11 pounds.

Escali for its Escali SmartConnect Body Scale in the Personal, Health & Garment Care category

Escali’s SmartConnect Body Scale enhances functionality by syncing the scale to Escali’s SmartConnect app, providing access to features on an interactive touch screen display. Using Bluetooth SMART technology, the scale can send wireless weight measurements to the user’s mobile device where they can be saved, analyzed and compared. The scale can also interface with the app alongside the SmartConnect Kitchen Scale, so users can analyze the nutrition content of the food they eat, create a food journal and then compare graphs of nutritional consumption to their body weight or body mass index. 

Linden Sweden, Inc. for its twixit! Seal & Pour Bag Clip in the Gadget & Kitchen Tools category
The twixit! Seal & Pour Bag Clip features a pour spout with lid that is said to make pouring from a resealed bag easy and quick. With 14 live hinges on the twixit! Seal & Pour Bag Clip, it allows for ease of attaching the clip to any bag and was designed to tightly close and keep bagged contents fresh. The clip is also dishwasher, microwave and food safe and can be reused.

The Housewares Design Awards is the industry’s premier independent awards competition.  Winners will be announced at the Housewares Design Awards presentation ceremony and luncheon on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

An independent panel of judges selected these finalists based on their superior design, appearance, function and originality. The Housewares Design Awards are presented by HomeWorld Business and sponsored by NY Now®, Gourmet Insider Magazine and Whitford Corporation. Product submission and judging process is managed by Housewares Design Awards LLC.
