Very Smart Pan

Very Smart Pan

The Heating Smart Pan addresses the need of a portable cooking appliance that can double up as the cooking utensil as well. There is a lot that we expect from our cooking aids these days; some folks like traditional methods and others prefer to explore high-tech appliances that give freedom of space and minimal worries about cleaning up. Heating Smart Pan is meant for the latter, for people who like to cook without using up too much space or fuss, the pan itself is a heating device and uses battery or electrical power to fire up. Neat!

Super Clean Food

Super Clean Food

Tabii is a food sterilizing and washing unit that gives storage life with a drying option. The focus of the project is to come up with solution to combat future water shortages and the ‘Turkish habit’ of food drying. Hence the unit works as a sterilizing, washing, drying, and dehydrating appliance.

Power Wash

Power Wash

The DualWash reminds me of the Electrolux Design Lab concept Bifoliate Double Dishwasher. The idea is similar, to have a wall mounted dishwasher that doubles up as a storage cabinet. However the DualWash features some newer innovations. This two sided dishwasher uses carbon-dioxide cleaning rather than water-based cleaning.

Professionally Spiced Sauce

Professionally Spiced Sauce

Mix is a smart appliance that comes loaded with a whole lot of recipes. Essentially the database makes it smart enough to calculate just how much spice and seasoning will your sauce need. According to your recipe and portions, the device dispenses either a powder encased in a ball or a liquid sauce. Simply use the dispensed portion and cook with confidence, knowing that you are cooking a professional meal!

Ah, Refreshed!

Ah, Refreshed!

With an aim to provide a fuller sensory experience, The Refresh was designed to act as a portable device that instantly cools your beverage. Essentially this means no more warm diet coke! Keeping up with the theatrics of good design, the appliance helps form a light condensation, followed by an enticing mist that envelopes the beverage bottle. Using advanced thermoelectric technology, the electric current causes the internal semiconductor nodes to instantly freeze.

Blending With Tempo

Blending With Tempo

I like designer Fu Chun Wan’s thought process that music and cooking go hand in hand. When its soul comforting food cooked with love, it makes the whole process much easier and appealing. And surely aids like the Tempo Blender help a lot! The machine not only tells you how much of the ingredients you need to add, to make the perfect glass of slush or cocktail; but also blends in sync with the tempo beat belted out. In short you end up having fun and attempting tricks like how Tom Cruise performs in the movie ‘Cocktail.’

Twist on Turkish Cookware

Twist on Turkish Cookware

The Beatoven is a modern interpretation of the traditional Turkish drum furnace that differs from other heavy, bulky and hard-to-use versions. Space is saved with its unique construction where the heating units are placed on both the top and bottom and the electrical cable can be stored within the oven when not in use. A touch-sensitive interface, customizable user profiles, and preset temperature/cook-time options make it much easier to use.

Just Like Mom’s Cooking

Just Like Mom’s Cooking

The Motherspoon concept allows families to connect together and share family recipes even though distances may keep them apart. The concept of storing and sharing recipes has changed over the years and this appliance integrates the internet, a dedicated exchange platform and sensors to get it working.

The Magic of Flambé

The Magic of Flambé

Inspired the 1815 creation, the Davy lamp, Fiery sets a new standard in restaurant styled cooking at home. Encouraging one to discover new tastes and flavors, Fiery actually allows you to flambé food without the worry of the fire. The appliance uses a wire mesh to isolate flame, making it easy to use and impress family and friends. Simply pour the liquor in a pan or a plate, press the button to ignite the fire, and then remove it when the flame turns off. Exciting!

This Ain't Your Mama's Cutting Board

This Ain’t Your Mama’s Cutting Board

Its designers describe the Slice cutting board as being “characteristically defined by its purpose yet visually inviting of attention in any kitchen environment,” and I couldn’t have said it better myself!  The removal of two mirrored, wedge shapes from either side of the board enhances the functionality of effortless lifting and controlled funneling of sliced food in one movement. It’s functionally practical for the same reason that it’s beautiful… exactly what good design is all about!

Chef-approved Cooking

Chef-approved Cooking

Although they may have the accurate recipe in hand, professional chefs know that the perfect stew or soup is always seasoned using approximations. It’s got to do with gut instincts I suppose, and unfortunately not all of us are blessed with that. So if you are looking for professional chef quality food at home, then you need the help of Ingressure.

The Two-in-One Team

The Two-in-One Team

Love this simple and functional induction cooker called Two any One. Basically it’s an indoor induction cook top with cooking plates that detach and fold up for portability. They rely on an in built-charging mechanism; hence you don’t power out or need cords when using it outdoors. How cool is that!

A Life With The Stove

A Life With The Stove

The Stove is an emergency stove that was inspired by the Great East Japan Earthquake. It basically is a design that allows you to use it for cooking and charging batteries. As the designer explains, “the wood or wooden pellets for the stove are environmentally friendly type of fuel that is easy to handle.” Although intended for earthquake prone Japan, the stove can find value in many other regions as well.
