An Intuitive Kettle

An Intuitive Kettle

The Celsius Kettle features a very intuitive design that looks at improving the efficiency in use and the over-all user experience in design. Employing both red and blue lights as temperature indicators, the controls linked to lighting systems inform the user about the stage of the heating process. The grip of the kettle has been designed to keep aesthetics and ergonomics in tact.

Non-aromatic Cooking?

Non-aromatic Cooking?

I like the idea that Hong Ying Guo is exploring with the Purifi Pan. The concept is simple; eliminating annoying cooking fumes right at the source and converting it to a refreshing gust of air. The approach is to add an electronic purifying element straight on the pan’s rim and doing away with conventional hoods. Hopefully its detachable, to enable easy cleaning and as we can see it is suitable for different sized utensils, with a couple of tweaks and refinements, I think we’ll have a winner in our hands.

Cook, Chop, Clean and Serve from a Table

Cook, Chop, Clean and Serve from a Table

The kitchen in the future, say 2025, is not going to be more than a table! This is what most designers and even Electrolux predicts. Future Cook is an interactive unit that doubles up as a prep area, induction cook top with integrated food processor and a washing area. Using existing technologies, it will be possible to add quirky features like nutritional information of the food being cooked and electronic recipes, to the workstation. The idea is to be a ‘smart counter’ for folks who don’t have the luxury of time to cook. Interesting!

Bento Box on a Daily Basis

Bento Box on a Daily Basis

I love steam-cooking food and if you keep scores with Masterchef (or Hell’s Kitchen) you soon realize that ‘keeping it simple’, is always the winning dish. Adding to the simplicity is this Bento Box portable steamer and lunchbox. In one clean sweep you get to cook a delicious healthy meal that stays fresh and vibrant. The box uses induction cooking elements and steams water through the course of the body. Different parts of the meal like vegetables, protein, and grains are separated into various containers for easy cooking.

Personal Chef at Your Fingertips!

Personal Chef at Your Fingertips!

I love to cook, but am terrible at making a thorough grocery list. A lot of the products I buy end up going to waste because my recipes are incomplete! I happen to be the ideal candidate for a device like the Electrolux Sous-Chef Digital Tablet! It helps you find your recipes, automatically creates a list of the necessary groceries, and will even help you prepare the meal step-by-step!

An Evergreen Cooker Hood

An Evergreen Cooker Hood

Zephiro is an elegant cooker hood designed by Emo design for Falmec. Functional yet simple, the hood is equipped with e.Ion technology for filtration. This technology is an ionization system that reduces odor by eliminating organic molecules (bacteria, viruses and allergens) suspended in the air. The main advantage of this system is that it eliminates the use of exhaust tubes or vents for the hood. This not only supports clean architecture, but also enhances the hood with ceiling suspension.

Smart Flame Control

Smart Flame Control

Smart Angle is a visual aid for flame control on a gas stove. While cooking Chinese food, the hot Wok and ingredients are not the only thing you need to have a control over. The heat or the flame of the gas is the other key element you need to keep an eye on. The conventional way to control the flame is to bend at the waist and peek at the burner and then set the flame. Smart Angle eliminates this dangerous step by using refraction.

Timed Cluck for Better Tea

Timed Cluck for Better Tea

Chicken & Kitchen is a quirky take on timer-enabled teapots. I love the bright red rooster-esque reference to the timer feature. As easy as it says….turn the crank to set the time from 5 minutes to about an hour, and at the set minute, this chicken is sure to cluck! Ah, the pleasures of a perfectly steeped cuppa chai; hard to deny myself one!

The Outdoor Kitchen

The Outdoor Kitchen

N1 Kitchen System is intended for the outdoors but can be fitted into a compact home. The whole unit just shuts-shop and fits into a storage container for easy transportation. The kitchen features the three basic elements – the sink and prep area, the storage unit and the stove system; keeping it really simple and bare.

My Orange Squeeze

My Orange Squeeze

I really don’t see the point in an electric citrus fruit squeezer. I own one and end up putting in manual labor to hold the orange in place with firm grip. I may as well invest in a classy juicer like the Edwin; it is sustainable and made from smooth ceramic and wood. Squeezing the fruit will give my fingers good exercise and no more worrying about repairs! Unless I get clumsy and break the ceramic component, I guess I’m all set.

Water Vigilance and Measure

Water Vigilance and Measure

Call it the vigilance committee or eco-functionality, but you have to hand it to the Cook Faucet for being a cool way to measure and keep a tab on how much water you consume. The buttons on the tap are divided into 100 ml, 500 ml and 1 liter and if you need some more, simply press the button for a wee bit longer or opt for the normal.

Getting Nosy About Food

Getting Nosy About Food

Not that airline food is all that great, but I was amused to see the kind of meal selection they offered on an international travel. Some of the diet plans were unheard of! So this brings me to the segment of society who fusses about the organic details of the produce like being genetically modified. I suppose they’d really value a tool like the Elephant Nose, a device that identifies genetically modified organisms (GMOs) such as ‘super tomatoes’ and genetically modified salmon.

Digital Cutting Board

Digital Cutting Board

The Almighty Board is the ultimate kitchen assistant. This smart-board will simultaneously serve as your cutting board, display your recipes, provide step-by-step directions and weigh your ingredients out for you. After you wash it, it will even tell you if it has been cleaned enough to avoid cross-contamination or food poisoning. If only it could do the dishes too!
