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!

Smart Cookin'

Smart Cookin’

Set to hit markets by the end of this year, the IQcook by Gorenje aims to reinvent the way we cook. The magnetic smart sensor, which can be placed on any lid, allows completely safe and controlled cooking while also providing up to 40% power savings. The device syncs wirelessly with the cooking hob to regulate heat so the user can concentrate on the rest of their cooking without having to worry about water boiling over or food being over-cooked. It’s about time we had something like this!

Garcon, one Cup of Light please

Garcon, one Cup of Light please

There’s a little light in every wonderful project, and here on Yanko Design we’ve got to appreciate the tools just as much as the ideas we produce – for example here a tiny light producer called “T Light”. What this little lamp is essentially a lightbulb in a coffee cup covered by a bit of cloth which enhances the overall quality of your experience. Look like your cuteness to go?

Tea Chemistry

Tea Chemistry

I am totally enchanted by this beautiful Chemicus set. Designed as a service set for Russian chemists/patriots and adorning the a traditional Gzhel pattern, the repurposed laboratory test tubes and beakers set reminds me of the other chemical reactions that took place in our school Chemistry Lab. Don’t worries dears…I don’t kiss and tell!

Enduring Espresso

Enduring Espresso

Wonsang Lee’s twist on the espresso machine appears ultra-modern, but takes inspiration from traditional Korean houses which are often designed to focus on exposure to outdoor landscaping. Like the traditional homes, the center of this design is where all the magic happens. Its open midsection is not only aesthetically unique, but an intuitive signal for where the user should place their mug.
