Tricked Out Appliances for Those On Wheels

Tricked Out Appliances for Those On Wheels

These are some tripped out appliances. This product set right here is called “Spot.” It’s full title is “Spot – Appliance Design for All.” Why? Because it’s designed for people who’re confined to wheelchairs or (I’d imagine) just short in stature. Three appliances, a fridge, a dishwasher, and an oven, for the supreme ease of use for all. (Post preview for everyone: I vote fridge for winner, how about you?)

Let's Get Steamy

Let’s Get Steamy

The Vap Steamer here brings back memories of the times when Microwaves were not available in India. I’m talking about the early 80’s, an era when the electronics boom had not hit this Asian subcontinent. We re-heated rice and other such items using the double boiler system, where steam was used to re-heat leftovers. Vap offers a safe and healthy option for not only re-heating but also for steam cooking. How about a round of Dim sums?

Cooking Right at The Table

Cooking Right at The Table

Designers keep sending me induction cooking table concepts so I figure I better feature one of them. This one uses the tech to bring family into the cooking experience – to create a new kind of domestic ritual. They say a family that cooks and eats together stays together. I love the idea of cooking together but there’s something to be said about cooking in a proper kitchen. Many families bond in there too.

Coral is this elegant pan that you can use for cooking and serving, but unlike the rest of the gang, this one comes coated with thermochromic spots. The pale blue dots turn into bright orange beauties, as the temperature of the pot increases. The handles on the pan comes off easily, thanks to the plug-spring system used. This ways you get to cook safely and efficiently and then slide off the pan-handle and serve right away!

Food Dicer, Lemon Slicer, Robot Penguins = WIN

Let me channel my best Shamwow Guy impression and convince you these items are worth their salt. The Easy Food Dicer, Lemon Slicer and Robot Penguins have a tiny bit of Alessi in them but there’s something modernly sophisticated to them too.

Keeping An Eye On The Milk For You

Keeping An Eye On The Milk For You

If you have a full house, there are less chances of anything staying for long in the fridge. Meaning it will get consumed sooner or later. But if you’re on your own or are the sorts who don’t raid the fridge often, you can very well expect some of the contents to expire before consumed fully. Fresholling here is a handy gadget that you attach to your milk carton or opened bottle of juices, and set the expiry date on them. Like an alarm clock, it ticks off at the end of the set date, ensuring you don’t consume spoiled goodies.

Stir Fry Kids

Stir Fry Kids

No, we’re not cannibals; and kids are precious too. I just wanted to introduce you to a new lineup called Wedo – a table top induction cooking system that allows children to learn the art of Stir-fry cooking without the risks. The system includes a chopping board, individual insulated cooking pods with anti-spill lid, and an induction cooking plate. The external temperature in this system doesn’t exceed 35ºC, which is good enough for Stir-frying.

Aromas Of China

Aromas Of China

The Tea Drinking rituals of China are quite intriguing as it has a lot of hierarchy practices to it. For instance a Boss will never pour a cup of tea for his juniors and the youngsters pour tea for the elders in the family. Even apologies, thanksgiving and peace offerings are made via tea. The cha.t Chinese Tea Set is crossbreed of contemporary equipment with these conventional values in mind. On one hand the kettle, cups and intentions are traditional. The tray on the other, is infused with modernization by including a heating element to it.

Go Around The Buttons

Go Around The Buttons

Merry go round the buttons I tell ya! Dang the button area around your starched shirt is tough to crease-out. Some irons do have indents on the side, allowing you to kinda skim around the sweet spot, but it ain’t got a Full U like the “U-Button Iron”. Hit the special button the iron and voilà! The tip retracts to reveal a U that slides under the button to give you a fully ironed shirt.
