Abt’s Favorite Holiday Recipes

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

At Abt, we’re used to helping customers find just the right appliances for their kitchen. This Holiday Season, we thought we’d try to help with ideas on what to make on all of those appliances we’ve put into people’s homes. Here are a few favorite recipes from a couple of our more Epicurean employees.

 

Sweet Potato Casserole

This one comes to us from Ken, our Director of E-commerce. Ken doesn’t normally like sweet potato dishes, which he normally thinks are too dense, mushy and sweet. He describes this variation: “The sweet flavor of rich, soft, pillowy sweet potatoes was not overbearing, and the nutty topping is a great addition for texture.”

It’s hard to believe, but the Holiday shopping season is nearly upon us, which means it’s time for the craziest retail day of the year: Black Friday. We know that savvy shoppers are already prepping their Black Friday shopping plans, readying lists and making schedules. So we sent Josh Davis over to the Fox News Chicago studios on Tuesday morning to give a little preview of some of the products we’ll be featuring on Black Friday. Our complete list isn’t live yet, so you’ll have to keep checking back (hint: Abt Facebook followers might have early access). In the meantime, peep the video below to get a glimpse at some of the goodies we’ll have for sale.

Gourmet Shop Grand Re-Opening!

Friday, November 7th, 2014

One of the design elements that makes the Abt showroom unique is the large atrium. In it you’ll find our fountain, an assortment of fun displays, and the entrances to all of our individual boutiques. These boutiques form a sort of “store within a store” concept. Each focuses on a particular brand or product theme. One of the most popular is the Abt Gourmet Shop, where customers can find all manner of small kitchen appliances, accessories and utensils. If you’re looking for a coffee maker, blender or new set of knives, the Gourmet Shop is where you’d find it. It was getting a little crowded lately, so we made room for an expansion.

Promaster Camera Gear at Abt

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Whether the upcoming holiday season has you spending more time with friends and family or escaping to warmer regions, it’s almost certain to have you taking plenty of photos. Wherever you find yourself,  having a good camera bag is key to any photographic travels. Camera bags protect your gear from accidental bumps and bruises, and make carrying your equipment much more comfortable—especially when you start carrying a flash unit, multiple lenses and assorted accessories.

Abt recently added camera accessories from ProMaster to our product line. In addition to things like lens filters and memory cards, you’ll find an assortment of camera bags in a variety of sizes and styles. Carl recently took a closer look at three different bags that are each perfect for a different level of photographer.

First up is the ProMaster Adventure 20 Compact Camera Bag, which is ideal for storing a large point-and-shoot or a small compact system camera:
