Waste No Waste; They Are A Treat For Plants!

Waste No Waste; They Are A Treat For Plants!

If we talk about the future of dining (everyday home meals), it’s quite alright to assume ready-to-eat steaks and pot roast being available in capsules. Compact food meaning easier to cook and clean-up and this is where the Electrolux Eco Cleaner, a portable, compact dishwasher comes in play. Using ultrasonic waves to ionize food particles on the dishes, this dishwasher converts the food/grease to reusable compost for plants. Thereby waste will no longer be waste, but healthy meals for the greens. Squeaky Clean dishes, just a by-product!

Android Based Coffee Brewery

Android Based Coffee Brewery

This thing makes coffee and spits out music. What more do you want? What more COULD you want? More? Alright well you’re in luck because this “Appresso” device does all that you want. It’s Android based. That means it’s amazing by itself. Then it makes coffee. Delicious coffee mmmm. It uses the Android technology to tell you info about the taste and scent of the coffee, then also reads QR-codes* from each coffee capsule, playing a specific song based on which pack you’ve scanned! My triple caffeinated cap plays Yanni in the morning.

Wok Wok Wok

Wok Wok Wok

Mmm, foods taste so good stir fried in a wok. Problem is this culinary technique generates a lot of smoke most of which gets sucked up in overhead hoods but what about people who don’t have full kitchens? The Eliminate Smoke Wok saves the day. The handle hides a carbon filter and fan. Switch on the fan and smoke gets absorbed into the activated carbon.

KitchenAid Variable Grill

KitchenAid Variable Grill

The KitchenAid Variable Grill is Tempur-Pedic bliss to your burgers. The top surface of the grill is split into more than a hundred individual surfaces that completely envelope food. This provides a fuller grilling experience from all sides. The cool thing is each unit only turns on when it senses food thereby saving energy (sic). Interesting concept. DO WANT!

Pressing Out The Bacteria And Grime

Pressing Out The Bacteria And Grime

Lupe is this innovative iron which can cut down the 3 steps of doing laundry into 1. The 3 steps being: washing, drying and ironing. Swipe it over that blob of dirt on your favorite Tee, and watch it dry-clean, sanitize and iron it at, all at once. Am I being to futuristic about this? No ways! I think if appliances like this are made available, then Carrie Bradshaw and her single friends will have no issues with doing the dirty laundry!

Folding Specialties Of A Kitchen

Folding Specialties Of A Kitchen

With the InFold Kitchen Concept you can no longer use “lack of space” as an excuse to cram in more appliances or whipping up a gourmet meal. What it’s really about is this, a modular wall-mounted kitchen but with everything fold-able. The appliances, sink, cooking platform, chairs, cooking range, all fold up vertically into the length of the wall. This ways, all you ever need is a good sized empty wall and adequate floor space to move around in.

Espresso For Scootertarians

Espresso For Scootertarians

If you love Vespas and love your coffee, you might like the Vespeo Espresso Machine. Heavily influenced by the iconic people mover, the Vespeo is a combination of tradition, modernity, and Italian flair. It’s technical, mechanical, yet fun to look out. The display even looks like a speedometer; intelligently telling you how to blend the right amount of water, steam, and coffee for that perfect cup every time.

Smart Fridge Is Your New Recipe Card

Smart Fridge Is Your New Recipe Card

The Smart Fridge here is for those who have shunted cooking to a hobby and rely more on designer microwave meals. The idea is to give you a fridge that is intelligent enough to come up with a healthy recipe, depending on what you stock in it. Not only that, it guides you with vocal instructions, spoon by spoon, till you dish out the perfect-wholesome meal. A touch interface door glams up the appliance, creating the desire to own a piece that’s futuristic but may not be what you’re looking for!

KitchenAid Grand Cooker Trump Card

KitchenAid Grand Cooker Trump Card

Short of kitchen staff? I know I am. I can’t remember the last time someone cooked for me, but when left to my own resources, I’m pretty good. That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t appreciate appliances that help make meal times easier. The KitchenAid Grand Cooker does it all. The retro styling is offset by a number of accessories that enable you to fry, roast, grill, simmer, and saute to your mouth’s content.

Wake-up And Smell The Coffee, Have It Too!

Wake-up And Smell The Coffee, Have It Too!

Buzzer alarms need to be tossed out of the window and replaced with the CoffeeTime. The idea is to wake up with the smell of coffee…no jarring rings or bells; just the inviting aroma. How does this happen, you ask? Well, you pre-set your favorite coffee capsule into the hour-glass shaped alarm. At wake-up time, the steaming brew just pours into a waiting cup and the strong aroma of coffee arouses you.

All Eggs In One Toaster

All Eggs In One Toaster

What makes Bang Bang (I love the name) different from other egg steamers is that it works more like a pop-up toaster. You place your eggs in the designated holes (inspired by the Sponges & Corals in the movie Finding Nemo) and put sufficient water in the holding tray; lower the egg lever and wait for the steaming action. After they’re done, the eggs pop up, just like your crispy brown smiling toast would! Now that would be a classy combo!

Cooking Made Efficient

Cooking Made Efficient

The Catalyst is a all-in-one cooking solution designed for the Indian market consisting of a hood, microwave oven, fryer, and cook top. The induction cooking plated slide apart to reveal a fryer for all those delicious Indian foods. All the vapors are captured by the hood above which also happens to be the oven. Quite the efficient design no? I LOVE me some Indian food too but find the fragrant spices to be so strong, my eyes water. That hood better be damn near a vacuum of air.
