Panasonic selects Eastman Tritan™ copolyester for new line of food processors

Eastman Tritan™ copolyester enhances safety and performance for precision-level food preparation at home.

Kingsport, Tenn., USA — November 27, 2017 — Panasonic, a global leader in innovative electronics technologies, has chosen Eastman Tritan™ copolyester as a key material in its new line of food processors, models MK-F800, 500, and 300. The high-powered food processors combine cutting edge technology and sleek design with the tough properties of Tritan to help consumers use professional food preparation techniques at home.

Each food processor comes with an array of versatile accessories and ultrasharp blades for even and efficient cutting of any ingredient. Each one also features a clear, durable jug made from BPA-free Tritan with a maximum capacity of 2.5 L.

“Whether you’re an at-home chef or a seasoned professional, this food processor makes it easy for anyone to prepare a gourmet meal at home,” said by product manager of Panasonic. “Tritan is a great fit for this new product line and one of the few materials that meets Panasonic’s high quality standards of clarity, chemical resistance, toughness and heat resistance.”

Tritan’s unique properties enhance the food processors’ overall functionality and safety. Tritan is dishwasher safe, which makes for quick and easy cleaning of the jug. Its high heat resistance, chemical resistance against oils and cleaners, and inherent toughness give it the durability needed for repeated use.

“As a supplier, Eastman provides us with exceptional technical advice and support to help us further our commitment to creating a better life and better world for consumers,” said by product manager of Panasonic.

The Smart Food Processor models MK-F800, F500, and F300 were introduced in April 2016 and are currently sold all over the world.
