Ergonomic Chopp-ing

Ergonomic Chopp-ing

I hate the process of chopping ingredients while cooking so I rely heavily on those German contraptions that you see on teleshopping networks. However there are times when I envy the kitchens of Masterchief and all those glossy tools and equipments that the participants get to use. The Chopp – chopping board looks fit enough to be in one of the shows. It’s a board with interchangeable functionality and features a hollow base to hold all the chopped food.

Fridge That Knows It All

Fridge That Knows It All

Smart Fridgerator is the mother of all smart fridges! It keeps the goodies ultra cool and conserves energy, but don’t they all? So what is the deal behind this concept; for starters, it has eyes! Yes two strategically placed pin cameras that keep a track of what is stored in each compartment, so that when you want an apple, you know exactly which door to open. Why all the fuss; to keep doors shut and conserve as much energy as possible. Also to make you look cool with a Jetson-esque appliance which features a touch panel, recipe options and smartphone connectivity.

Silver Swan

Silver Swan

The latest addition to the ISMA line of fixtures is the elegant Swan faucet. Its proportions subtly combine heavy and light elements that maintain balance between spout and handle. The inspiration behind this unique style and shape comes from the traditional Danish silverwork. As easy to install as it is to operate, the Swan incorporates the ingenious ISMAFIX mounting system, making self-installation easy as 1-2-3.

Waterless Cleaner

Waterless Cleaner

As you might have guessed by the name, the Waterless Cleaner by Beata Patasiute is a waterless cleaning solution that uses magnetic microwaves to heat dipole molecules of food residue stuck on dishes. As the spinning head and flexible bristles remove the residue only these molecules are heated, so the dish stays cold and can be safely handled while cleaning.

BBQ Special

BBQ Special

Barbecues are as much fun as they are headaches. When the party’s over, the cleaning process and stowing away is always such a big problem. Inspired by the retro video game cartridge, we have here the Cartridge Grill, a seamless combination of heater and grill-plate. It promises to be as much fun with an easier cleaning process. The good news is that you won’t have to wait till summer for some BBQ action, this baby works all year round!

Flexible Disposal!

Flexible Disposal!

The Flex Bin is intended for the kitchen but I can picture it in almost any room of the house or office. Flexible ribs made from polycarbonate, extend or contract to easily tuck in any-size disposable bag. Easy to maintain and clean, I love this flowery concept and would love to see it a home store!

Cooking Can Earn You Carbon Credits

Cooking Can Earn You Carbon Credits

Earning Carbon Credits is a big business game for the corporate segment, however in the domestic world we hardly bother about it. Turning our attention to this key element for sustenance and greener world, we have here the Eco Cook concept. This appliance is a unique combination of cooking and heating elements (as in microwave cooking) that focuses on reducing the carbon footprint of your activity whilst cooking efficiently. The Carbon Credits earned while cooking are stored in a card and can be redeemed or passed on as favors. If such a system can be put in place, then I’m all for it!

DIY Soap

DIY Soap

For a moment just forget the device presented here and the technicalities for working it. Focus on the idea; Re-Q is an eco-friendly soap maker that recycles domestic wastewater and the last wedges of used soap to make you a brand new soap bar! Essentially it is a brilliant idea! In a three-step process, the machine purifies greywater, mixes it with soap bits and then processes the mixture into new soap cakes! How radical is that!

Seriously Simple Mixing Bowl

Seriously Simple Mixing Bowl

I’m all about some wood bowls, and this particular set has an especially timeless look that I’m loving. The hard, dense ash wood of the Bowling set of mixing bowls is known for its warm finishing qualities and is also as strong as it is elastic, ensuring a long life of use. A slightly larger, gently rounded lip makes this design incredibly ergonomic and attractive- perfect for a variety of tasks in and out of the kitchen. Catch em at 100% Norway during 100% Design in London.

Cook The Perfect Rare

Cook The Perfect Rare

I don’t cook meat so I really don’t have this perception of cooking with timer and temperature. But for those of you who do, the Electrolux Slice Concept makes perfect sense. This cooking tool is a combination of a sensor and timer that monitors food as it cooks. As the meat turns from raw to rare the sensor changes color, indicating that the desired temperature has been reached. I love the sleek finish given to the overall device, very minimalistic and clean.
