Launch and Media Interaction

Chef Sanjeev Kapoor and Ravi Saxena formally opened the store by cutting the ribbon and cake.

Later, both the co-founders interacted with media and answered many questions.

  • How do you ensure the product quality is maintained?
  • How important is to use the right vessel in preparing good food?
  • What research is being done before products are introduced to market?
  • Do you think, the older styles and vessels are coming back to market?
  • What are the new products expected to be released into the market?
  • Future of using Millets in India?

While answering the questions, both Chef Sanjeev & Ravi gave live demo of the products like – Chopper (Smart Prepping) and Nutri-blend (Blender & Grinder).  Chopper was used to make fine-pieces of beetroot while the handy mixer was used to powder a single piece of black pepper.  It was good to see such a great output by using these Kitchen Appliances.

They also shared info about the new products that are in the pipeline – Roti Maker, Coffee Maker and others.  Chef Sanjeev Kapoor spoke about the research being done by keeping Indian customers in mind.  Instead of hurrying on introduced a half-baked product, they believe in introducing the right product benefit Indian Household.

Overall Experience

It was good to be part of a the Wonderchef store launch at Commercial Street, Bangalore.  I specially loved the opportunity to interact with Celebrity Chef Sanjeev Kapoor.  Both Chef & Ravi Saxena (MD) shared a lot of insights into the product range and interacted with bloggers, public & media.  It is very assuring to hear their perspective, about the product quality and use of Technology.  The live demo session while explaining the products was wonderful.  I personally found the Chopper and Blender products to be good. The price of the product is very competitive.

Ravi Saxena dreams of making this brand the No.2 player in Kitchenware Industry, within next 3 years.  With the current product range, quality and price, the dream seems very achievable.
