CLEVELAND, Ohio (December 1, 2011) – Kitchenware manufacturer Weston Products has launched a new site, MichaelSymon.WestonProducts.com, as an online source for its latest line of specialty kitchen products, the Michael Symon Live to Cook collection.
Celebrity Chef Michael Symon is an Iron Chef, Food Network Star, host of ABC’s “The Chew,” and now, he has launched his first kitchenware line. The Michael Symon Live to Cook Collection by Weston includes a meat grinder, vacuum sealer, sausage stuffer, French fry cutter, burger presses, and several other stainless steel kitchen tools “for those who take cooking seriously.”
In addition to viewing product details and purchasing the items on the site, consumers can watch product demos hosted by the Iron Chef himself. The site also gives customers the opportunity to preview recipes from Weston’s Michael Symon “For Those Who Take Cooking Seriously” Recipe Collection, which is included free with each product in the line.
“We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with Chef Symon,” said Michael Caspar, CEO of Weston Products. “Being from Cleveland made the partnership a perfect fit – our shared values on food preparation made it a no-brainer.”
Symon, currently the owner of four critically acclaimed restaurants and eight total locations, chose to partner with Weston Products to make restaurant-style cooking more approachable to the home cook. The self-proclaimed “meat-centric” chef selected products for crafting foods like burgers, sausages, and French fries from fresh ingredients.
“Weston products have changed the way I cook.” said Symon. “They make cooking easier, more efficient, and always fun.” In addition to MichaelSymon.WestonProducts.com, the Michael Symon Live to Cook collection is set to be available at fine retailers across the country in the next coming months.
