155412773590208.pngNTP-STAG added OXX, Inc. to its kitchen appliances category. OXX has a reputation for manufacturing tough and rugged appliances, NTP-STAG says.

NTP-STAG says the COFFEEBOXX is an innovative and ultra-tough premium coffeemaker, field-tested to perform well beyond industry standards.

Built with industrial-grade materials, the COFFEEBOXX features a UV-resistant shell and stainless-steel construction, allowing it to withstand any ding, dent, bump, or bruise. It’s dust-proof and water-tight, rust-resistant and virtually uncrushable—standing up to a 1,500-lb load with ease. With a rubber carrying handle, fold-up drip tray, 3-foot retractable power cord, and 12-lb weight (when empty), the unit is compact and portable.

The extra-large 2.5L water tank is the largest on the market and can service up to ten 8-oz servings before needing a refill, and the brewing compartment features a removable drip tray, accommodating up to an 8-inch tall cup. The COFFEEBOXX is single-serve, fitting any brand K-cup compatible pod to ensure ease-of-use. It heats the water to 190 degrees in less than 30 seconds, allowing for a quick-brew time of 75 seconds, so coffee drinkers get a fresh, hot cup every time—any time. The unit also features a separate hot water dispenser.

“Quite simply, OXX is a natural fit within the RV aftermarket, and we’re very pleased to now make this product available to RV dealers and their customers,” says Thomas Probst, category manager at NTP-STAG. “Whether on the shelf, situated in a well-positioned merchandising display, or in a service waiting area using the OXX and sampling the coffee, OXX’s ingenious design, packaging, and displays will be a big draw at dealerships,” he adds. “Consumers looking to integrate at-home elements into the RV lifestyle, like a must-have morning coffee, will not only appreciate the widely-used K-cup design, but also its durability and compactness, which are essential to the rigors of mobile RVing and camping.”
