In its first attempt at cooperative marketing with another appliance distributor, Avanti Products is now distributing four models of the Turkish-manufactured Teba "mini-kitchen."
The units, which combine a countertop oven with various types of cooktops, range in price from $149 to $349, according to Avanti sales VP Mike Flynn. The top-end model has a Ceran cooktop.
Distribution on the mini-kitchens began in mid-April, Flynn said.
Also new from Avanti is a 24-inch, 36-bottle wine cooler, to be available late in June.
The company begins shipping two 24-inch gas ranges next month as well. "By the end of the year we'll probably bring in our first electric range," Flynn said. "We'll start with a 20-inch model."
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
