Today’s home cooks need more support than ever before to wade through the clutter of conflicting information and plethora of products on the market. Kitchen appliances should be providing solutions to make lives easier by producing consistent results.

“At Philips Domestic Appliances, our ultimate goal is to provide real, everyday solutions that make healthy eating at home easy and attainable,” said Caitlin Bart, Philips Senior Marketing Manager. “Through this partnership with Donatella, we have an opportunity to bring her personal experiences and professional expertise together with our versatile portfolio of products to offer unique content to our community.”

Philips portfolio of appliances makes cooking enjoyable for the entire family with intuitive, user-friendly products that make restaurant-quality meals for limitless recipe options. The portfolio includes a range of products from Philips Premium Airfryer XXL which cooks tasty foods with virtually no oil, to Philips Pasta Maker Plus which allows for customization of every ingredient to create the perfect dish, and support those who have dietary restrictions, and additional appliances to help all chefs feel at home in their kitchen.

As a former lawyer, and current chef, restaurateur, author, fitness enthusiast, and most importantly – a wife and mom of three, Donatella’s combined experiences make a partnership with Philips Domestic Appliances a natural fit. With the launch of PhilipsKitchenByDonatella.com, she will bring the Philips community into her home kitchen with a new live and interactive cooking series, ‘Philips Presents: Dine in with Donatella.’ Premiering on May 26th, this monthly show will be available to Philips appliance owners and will feature seasonal recipes and product tips and tricks. Attendees will be able to select featured dishes in advance, allowing them to cook along with Donatella in real time.

“As a chef, appliances must be top quality and enhance my day-to-day cooking to earn ‘precious counter space’ in my kitchen,” said Donatella. “Philips offers a range of options that makes cooking at home fun, easy and healthy, no matter what your taste is. Through this partnership, I’ll be welcoming fellow home cooks into my kitchen where we will explore new ways to bring your favorite dishes to life through some of my favorite recipes and tips and hacks!
