`New grinder ideas'

THE QUEST for making life more convenient continues, virtually non- stop.

his is amply manifested in the bevy of new consumer durables models, with additional features, that are hitting the market.

Grinders are no exception to this trend. What started off as a mere replacement to the grinding stone is now being armed with features that make it the cynosure of the kitchen.

And, the latest to join the league is the Premier Table Top Tilting Grinders from the stable of S.Sivanesan and Company.

Sleek in design, the two-litre grinder comes with drum tilting facility. The idea, according to the manufacturing firm, is to avoid the need for removing the stones to take out the dough after grinding. It is enough if you just tilt the drum and rotate it gently for easy flow of the ground dough.

Coming as a bonus is the special introductory price offer of Rs. 2,990 for the grinder against its regular cost of Rs.3,200. If this were not enough, the company is conducting display, demonstration cum sale till January 2 at Ankur Plaza on G.N.Chetty Road in T.Nagar, Uma Complex in Kellys and Netraa Plaza in Natesan Nagar.

If convenience is the name of the game in the consumer durable industry, comfort and beauty reigns supreme in the world of furniture. Extending beyond the realms of table and chairs, furniture today encompasses a whole gamut of items including designer doors that provides a window to what is interior.

Belonging to the mode is Opulence, the range of exclusive furniture that accommodates comfort while exhibiting a rare, subtle beauty. No wonder, an exhibition of the furniture, meant for those who look for true quality without compromising on the beauty, was held recently at the Vimonisha Art Gallery.

It was a combination, of different sizes and shapes, from among wood, stainless steel, glass, stone or veneer. The highlight of the Opulence range, belonging to interior design concern Atelier, included the use of veneer-faced marine boards with melamine finish and their design keeping in mind ergonomics.

The thrill of purchasing products that are convenient and comfortable to use knows no bounds when it is accompanied by a scheme calling for a slice of luck. In tune with this is the `Throw A Dice-Win A Prize' festive season promotion of Samsung at S.C.Shah showroom on Anna Salai.

Under the scheme, which is on till January 3, those purchasing Samsung products are asked to throw a dice. Corresponding to the number appearing on the dice, they are eligible to avail discounts upto Rs.600.
