The Curling Pan is one heck of an innovation! Just imagine popping the cutting board onto the fire and get cooking right away! This means that the board is the pan. Crafted from shape-memory alloy, it transforms from a flat cutting board to a frying pan when it comes in contact with heat. The edges start to curl up after a certain temperature. This is because of the nature of the material with which it is made from: shape-memory alloy with a two-way memory effect. The material takes one particular shape when it is cool (flat board), and another when it is heated (frying pan). As it heats up the color of the pan changes from white to yellow to red.
Curling Pan is 2013 red dot award: design concept winner.
