Confessions of a Coffee Addict

Confessions of a Coffee Addict

Like most of you, I’m a coffee addict and love to carry my java with me. The problem with most cuppa joe’s is that they don’t provide for instant gratification, aka brewing on the go. The Nomad Coffee Maker rectifies the situation by being this portable maker that taken in the coffee filter on one end and dispenses the brew into the other (or any cup/container). Practical in its approach, the design also includes a USB connection to power the maker via your laptop or wall socket. Very Clever!

Induction Meets Conventional Stove

Induction Meets Conventional Stove

StovE is a next generation cooking device for small families. It combines the energy-efficiency of induction cooking with the power of conventional gas cooking. It features 2 cooking surfaces for each, 1 induction on top and 1 gas burner on the right, while a 3rd induction below the top keeps food warm before being served. Despite its large variety of uses and functionalities, its form, inspired by a leaf, uses less space in the kitchen thanks to its elongated, vertical shape.

Freeze As You Please

Freeze As You Please

The FR is a flexible refrigerator that can allot storage space as per the food requirements. What this means is that in case you have more frozen foods than fresh, then simply switch the compartment dividers to increase the freezer space and vice versa. It basically gives you the flexibility to change the freezer to fresh-food configuration. Pretty clever if you ask me!
