Toasty Barbeque

Toasty Barbeque

I love the versatility of the Different Oven; it affords you having 2 appliances packaged as one. In one mode you get to use it as a regular toaster and crisp your bread. And if you switch it to the other mode, it fans out open to do some yummy barbeques and grilling. You can even do some eggs on it for breakfast; basically use it for more than just browning your bread! How awesome!

Blend, Baby, Blend!

Blend, Baby, Blend!

The FRXSH blender is refreshingly minimal compared to the many bulky, user-unfriendly designs out there. The remarkably small base is simple (even lacking a start button) and easy to use thanks to an automatic trigger mechanism that starts when the container is twisted in place. Focusing on verticality rather than beefiness, the design doesn’t take up a lot of counter space or intrude on the aesthetic of the kitchen.

Single Cuppa Coffee

Single Cuppa Coffee

The Single Cup Coffee Maker explores expressions like ‘curiosity’, ‘meditative’, and ‘surprise.’ Like Kay pointed out to us in the email, the design imbibes the phrase ‘form follows function’ along with ‘give form a meaning.’ Essentially this was a task to understand the possibilities of engaging the user with the above-mentioned elements. But if you ask a layman like me, it’s a superb ‘only-me’ kinda coffee hangout that I can start right on my desk!

Outdoor Warmer

Outdoor Warmer

The Stoneven takes the induction cooking stones concept a step further by adding the versatility angle to it. Basically the pebbles can be used collectively to cook in outdoor camps and be used as body warmers. Yeah, the outdoors are rough and rugged, but when you travel in the woods you need appliances and gadgets that can serve more than one purpose. This aspect not only lightens the load but also increases the spectrum of performance.

Diamond Inspired Blender

Diamond Inspired Blender

Everyone knows that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right? The Cullinan Diamond Blender aims to appeal to the feminine side with a raw diamond shape that definitely stands out from the archetype. To improve vorticity and consistency, the functional shape of the internal canister was adapted to the tendency of fluids to naturally keep a continuous momentum when stirred. Just don’t give it to your girlfriend when she’s expecting actual diamonds… you might just get slapped!

Hot Outdoor Lunch

Hot Outdoor Lunch

The Green Cooker is an outdoor cooking appliance that utilizes Solar panels and water for it’s functioning. Design-wise it features a flat retractable cooking panel that allows you to conveniently cook food while camping. It folds up to a column size and makes perfect sense as a portable appliance. Although working details are sketchy, it doesn’t take away the fact that the cooker can become a clever addition to any camp-supply system.

Tasty Tastings

Tasty Tastings

A wholesome, flavorsome meal is what cooking is all about. You know you want to serve the perfect dish for family and friends, but sometimes the right flavoring can get the better of you. To make sure that you always dish out the perfect meal, Tastee helps you by doing the tasting for you. Shaped like a spoon, the device is laced with receptors based on the human taste bud. This means it is adept at telling you if you got the flavors right, or if you need to add a pinch of salt and a dash of vinegar!

Memorizing The Right Cuppa Java

Memorizing The Right Cuppa Java

It takes a good barista to memorize their customer’s favorite cuppa coffee and serve it right for them. However sometimes we get stuck with a snobbish one who just doesn’t get it right. Memory is a coffee maker that uses hand print recognition to make the right cup of coffee for the right person. Set it to your preference of weak, medium or strong coffee or even an espresso to a ristretto.

Tree + Eat = Treat

Tree + Eat = Treat

Treat is a seamless way of storing and managing the leftover food. It employs classic food storage techniques like vacuum sealing and modern remote mobile technology to ensure your food is always consumed fresh. The appliance has a clever and intuitive way of communicating its warning when the food is expiring. It changes its color as the food ages (like the ripening of a fruit!) and then drops down to the carpet below.

Experimental Cooking With Molecules

Experimental Cooking With Molecules

As an avid MasterChef fan, the appliances that the participants get to use, stump me. Imagine dabbling with molecular cooking and cooking meats in a water-bath. The Mo’Sphere hopes to recreate those magical moments in a regular kitchen. With bringing molecular cooking techniques to everyday homes, the possibility of experimenting with flavors and textures become limitless.

The Tor of Pizza

The Tor of Pizza

It takes to be on the other side of the fence to understand the importance of piping hot food. I work from home so I never have to face the challenge of eating a rubbery pizza just because it went cold during lunch delivery. Maybe this is why the Tower Food Warmer focuses on meals like pizza along with healthy options like salad for keeping warm and fresh. The design takes into consideration a clever locking system so that the food compartments don’t open hastily and thus create a mess.

Handsfree Cooking!

Handsfree Cooking!

The Easystir is an automatic stirrer that allows you to pursue other work while it diligently looks after your dish. Foods like soups, broths and curries require constant stirring and I know for a fact that with some Indian cooking you need to keep on stirring for hours; yes HOURS! The stirring speed is adjustable, it is dishwasher safe and it doesn’t require recharging, battery replacements or plugging at all. It simply uses magnets that react to your induction stove!
