Bend, OR (July 23, 2020) – Hydro Flask, an award-winning leader in high-performance, insulated stainless steel flasks and soft good innovations and a Helen of Troy Limited (NASDAQ, NM: HELE) brand, is excited to announce the launch of Outdoor Kitchen – delivering a fresh, functional way to look at camping and dining outdoors. The durably stylish collection of reusable, multipurpose cooking and serving essentials is designed to move seamlessly from indoors to out while helping to ensure ingredients stay fresh.
“We’re proud to celebrate Outdoor Kitchen as our newest category debut and the next evolution of Hydro Flask,” said Hydro Flask Vice President of Product Jay Wilkins. “People who are increasingly finding a sense of escape in the outdoors still want to be able to cook and dine well, wherever their adventures lead them. We’re excited to redefine outdoor dining with a versatile collection that is durable and functional enough for the outdoors yet sleek enough for the dining table.”
The Hydro Flask Outdoor Kitchen product line showcases an integrated collection of multipurpose cooking and serving essentials designed for cooks who are going places - from basecamp to the beach, the backyard and beyond. Each delivers Hydro Flask’s innovative performance features that include pro-grade stainless steel construction and the all-new TouchShield™ double wall insulation to keep hands comfy even when holding hot meals. Stackable designs make pieces easy to store, transport and carry – especially when packed inside the self-standing tote.
Outdoor Kitchen’s refined, yet durable design features Hydro Flask’s proprietary Color Last™ powder coat, which is dishwasher safe. The product collection will be available in three colors: Pineapple, Olive and the warm neutral Birch. Each piece will be sold separately, allowing consumers the option to mix and match their preferred colorways. All dining products have a lifetime warranty, and the 34 Liter Outdoor Tote has a 5-year warranty.
Individual pieces will retail for manufacturer’s suggested retail prices ranging from $19.95 - $79.95.
