Charlie, I do disregard your opinion. I was questioning why you made it.
The tone of your statement above suggests you don't think it's very good idea.
The company I was referring to is Cuisinart. They make cookware, cutlery and electrical appliances for the kitchen - blenders, grills, food processors, etc.
Viking makes stoves and cookware.
Calphalon makes cookware, cutlery and cooking utensils.
Braun makes electric shavers and kitchen appliances.
Multiple product lines is more common than not.
