FATHER’S DAY – Men in the kitchen
The men’s interest increase for the kitchen encourages the release of multi-functional products to move the retail sales on Father’s Day.
The growing interest for the gastronomy, increasingly motivated by numerous programs about this subject on television and digital media, is taking the men to the kitchen, from where historically great chefs have come up, who documented the culture of their countries through cooking. In this return to their origins, the men choose high-performance tools, but also practical which enable them to show their abilities.
A combination of factors that lead the men to choose technological and more practical items, says Eduardo Muniz, marketing director from Mondial Eletrodomésticos. “One of them refers to the great allurement that technology exerts in the men generally, which is seen in different categories, such as smartphones, computers, and automobiles, and that would not be different from small appliances. Another factor is the already known search for practicality by a good part of this public to activities in general, which is a feature provided by the electronic portables.”
This opinion is shared by Cristiane Clausen, the general director from Britânia. “The men are more objective and practical by nature and they take these characteristics to their moments in the kitchen. They have been increasingly doing household chores including at this moment, and they have been moving to live alone. Thus, the practicality that the kitchen tools aggregate is essential to them, mainly because man and kitchen are no longer an exception.”
The men are more involved in the food preparation due to lifestyle changes, says Flávia Bertocco di Celio, the marketing manager from Newell Brands, holder of Cadence and Oster brands. “Due to economy, necessity, or will, the ‘oven pilots’ have been increasingly more skillful. For these amateur cooks and head chefs, the products should provide a great performance. The increase in demand is related to the fact that the families are at home longer.”
The men choose high-performance tools, but also practical which enables them to show their abilities.
Everyone, men and women, like the practicality in everyday life, affirms Annette de Castro, CEO from Mallory. “Being able to do more than one activity at the same time means time and effort economy. Thus, more practical products gain ground due to them not to demand so much time. The electric deep fryer is an example. Previously, it was necessary to choose a deep fryer, put oil, and stay close until the end of the preparation. Now, it is simply insert everything in the tray and wait for a few minutes. We have been seeing this support from the customers to this kind of product.”
The electric deep fryers, the blenders, the food processor, and the multi-functional pots are indispensable to well equip a kitchen and prepare the daily or special-occasion food. To respond to the demand, which may increase in the period of Father’s Day, the date that always heats the market, the small appliances are increasingly smarter, with functional design, and adjustable to the current life, as you can check out next.
Active in almost all the small appliances’ categories, the company highlights its newline to Father’s Day. The Britânia Revert blender provides a mixture more homogeneous due to the technology of the same name. The blades spin in the two directions. Another product is the Air Fry, with different non-stick coating.
One more new of the brand is the PMP950 multi-processor, compact and with great grinding power. The multi-functional product comes with a blender jar. The Redstone crockpot is also multi-functional, ceramic-coated, totally nontoxic that enables you to cook without oil addition. The product fries, stews, heats, bakes, toasts, gratinates, grills, and braises.

Britânia’s expectation is the sales growth, says the general director. “We look forward to the possibility of this moment to pass thus we can open again our physical stores. The retail has been reinventing itself, we see growth in the sales through apps and other on-line ways, and that has been helping us to show that those who know to live in these two worlds will make a difference.”
