What

 Wolfgang Puck 1050–watt commercial blender, the kitchen appliance that can make steamy hot soups, iced smoothies and the Wolfgang Puck Chopper, a 400-watt, dual power, multi-blade chopper is versatile enough to prepare everything from fresh pesto to fruit smoothies to ice cream.

Needs 

Wolfgang Puck Appliances Inc needed a food-safe material that was BPA-free, very tough, held up to high and low temperatures, glasslike clarity and dishwasher durability. “These attributes parallel the high quality standards that are synonymous with the Wolfgang Puck brand,” said Mike Sanseverino, executive vice president, W.P. Appliances, Inc

Material 

Eastman Tritan copolyester, With its glass-like clarity, minus the weight, shatter-risk, and slick-wet handling that comes with traditional glass products in the kitchen, Eastman Tritan™ copolyester is the perfect material for the blender and chopper carafes. “We looked to Tritan™ because of the advantages the material offers for our customers,” said Sanseverino.

Tritan™ is a new-generation clear plastic with excellent toughness and impact resistance. Unlike some plastics, Tritan is made without bisphenol-A (BPA) and it retains clarity after repeated dishwasher washing cycles, without hazing or cracking

What’s next!

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s line, W.P. Appliances, Inc., have used Eastman Tritan™ copolyester in other products launched earlier this year. “As we’ve begun to migrate other products, we’ve found that molding Tritan™ has been effortless, with only slight adjustments to existing equipment and processes,” says Sanseverino. “We have a goal of using the material for 100% of the line.”
