Parasia International Introduces Innovative New Holiday Turkey Thermometer at 2011 International Home + Housewares Show

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - The Digital Turkey Thermometer/Alarm will be unveiled by Parasia International LTD at the 2011 International Home + Housewares Show, March 6-8, at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

Called "Terrific Turkey," this new seasonal turkey thermometer is designed as a replacement to the over-simplified "pop-up" turkey thermometers that have dominated the industry for the past 50 years. Product includes a probe which is placed in the center of the turkey while in the oven. This probe is connected to a 36" long heat-resistant cable that leads to a timer / alarm. The alarm is in the shape of a cooked turkey and has a red LED light and alarm. The alarm also has a magnetic back so it is easy to place on the counter or even on the front of the oven. Once the turkey has reached its optimal internal temperature (165 degrees) the alarm sounds and the LED light flashes, letting the consumer know the turkey is done.

"We designed this thermometer knowing that it would be the next great holiday season 'MUST HAVE' product for 2011," said Eric Halberg, General Manager. "The pop-up turkey thermometers have owned this holiday category for half a century; it's time for technology to take over. The everyday consumer no longer has to keep opening the oven door releasing all the heat, or even pay attention to the bird to see if the timer has popped. It will undoubtedly be a top seller for all of our retailers in the coming fourth quarter."

"It is a great way to make sure your fowl doesn't become foul," Halberg interpreted.

Parasia International will be located at Booth 3449-3450 in the South Hall at the 2011 International Home + Housewares Show. Along with the Terrific Turkey, they will also display their full line of kitchen thermometers and gadgets, including their exclusive "Dual-Probe Thermometer," "Digital BBQ Tongs," and "Twist-Powered Flashlight."
