We plan to leverage our marketing initiatives to provide heart healthy recipes, cooking tips online and to encourage our consumers to make a promise to love their hearts.

    Hamilton Beach has designated more than 30 Go Red products including distinctive red appliances to remind women every day to love their hearts. Hamilton Beach encourages women to take charge of their health, learn the risk factors of heart disease, and make eating healthy a priority.

The Silent Killer

Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. Each year heart disease and stroke claims the lives of nearly half a million women - but the good news is that heart disease is largely preventable.

"Every year we see great strides in the awareness of the dangers of heart disease which challenges us to help spread the word even farther," said Dr. Michael J. Morecroft, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hamilton Beach Brands. "We plan to leverage our marketing initiatives to provide heart healthy recipes, cooking tips online and to encourage our consumers to make a promise to love their hearts."

According to Morecroft, financial support of the American Heart Association's efforts goes hand in hand with spreading the word about healthy lifestyle choices in the fight against heart disease. Consumers can look for tips and recipes on the Hamilton Beach Web site http://www.hamiltonbeach.com, or look for Hamilton Beach(R) Go Red designated products at select retailers.
