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!

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.

Making Kitchens Less Ugly

Making Kitchens Less Ugly

There are an overwhelming variety of range hood and air ventilation options out there, but almost none are aesthetically pleasing or discreet! The Hidden Air Diffuser was designed for application into most types of ceilings to provide an unobtrusive, near-invisible way of circulating air and ridding smoke. Available options include minimal recessed light combinations or flush decorative vents and all can be painted to blend into any room style for a more open, cleaner look.

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.

Kitchen Tweezers

Kitchen Tweezers

The Kitchen Tweezers (obvious inspiration) are a modern reinterpretation of kitchen tongs that solve the main problem with the former design’s lack of spring, making them much more efficient and easy to use (not to mention way better looking!). The minimal, seamless design can be cut from a variety of materials that have tensile strength. I’m digging the raw solid wood and carbon styles!

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.

Flower Power

Flower Power

Bloom isn’t at all what you might expect a kitchen appliance to look like, but don’t be deceived by its soft, floral aesthetic. The multifunctional design chops, heats & even cleans up after itself! The “petals” are made of strong, heat resistant, non-stick material that spin to stir or chop food that’s being heated by the base. When the cooking’s finished, just activate the steam cleaning nozzle located in the center of the flower to remove stubborn stuck-on food particles!

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!

Break The Cooking ICE

Break The Cooking ICE

ICE is the mix of a lamp, mood lighting and recipe database that can assist in making your cooking and dining experience even more delightful. The theme for this year’s Electrolux Design Lab was to create appliances that enhance your cooking experience by livening your senses. The ICE adheres to this in many ways.

Musical Dinner

Musical Dinner

Imagine a future where food is inspired by music. I am talking about the SmartPlate, a dish that understands food and transforms it into sound. As described by Julian, it completes the circle of senses by which we understand what we eat. The plate hookes up wirelessly to your mobile device, and then by measuring the different aspects of your ingredients, it identifies food. It then precisely attaches musical notes, harmonies and rhythm to each ingredient.

Leftover Refrigerator

Leftover Refrigerator

The Impress Refrigerator has an intriguing way of storing food. It holds containers or bottles in such a way that you can never forget that you have placed them there. It consumes lesser power when fewer items are placed, thus conserving energy. The open interface makes it easy for you to access the food and also never forget about them!

The Spummy Is Here

The Spummy Is Here

The Spummy is the future of flavor creation that uses nano-technology to create edible foam. There are endless possibilities to the flavors that can be spun into foam and the combinations can ignite any gourmet chef’s fantasy! Inspired by Ferran Adrià, the inventor of flavored foam, which helped win him ‘Restaurant of the Year’, four years in a row, Spummy brings home the possibility of dishing out treats are exotic and worthy of praise!
