No-Brainer Kitchen Strainer

No-Brainer Kitchen Strainer

To ensure produce is free of dangerous pesticides and other residue, it is recommended they’re submerged for 20-30 minutes, but running water for that long is unrealistic and wasteful. To aid in the process, the Anton Strainer Bowl is designed to keep the contents submerged until you’re ready to strain with a simple filter and spout placed on the side rather than bottom. Better yet the placement avoids overfilling and its long spout doubles as a handle for easy maneuvering in the kitchen. Vid after the jump!

StovE is a next generation cooking device for small families. It combines the energy-efficiency of induction cooking with the power of conventional gas cooking. It features 2 cooking surfaces for each, 1 induction on top and 1 gas burner on the right, while a 3rd induction below the top keeps food warm before being served.

Not Your Mama's Flowerpot

Not Your Mama’s Flowerpot

The Water Recycling Flowerpot makes the rest seem BASIC! Using a unique double-hallow structure, it’s able to recycle the leftover water that remains in the pot after watering. Water is stored inside the inner wall, preventing overwatering yet ensuring hydration. The water inside evaporates and condenses into droplets that fall back to the soil, creating the process of recycled irrigation. Made of crystal-clear glass, it’s fun and easy to see exactly what’s going on inside!

Panorama Traffic Lights are easily visible to pedestrians even if it is hidden behind tall buses (and other bulky vehicles) at the signal crossing. It is designed in a manner that increases the signal’s visibility across various viewing angles. It enhances road safety by cutting down accidents and ensuring that crossings are safer. Love the design and wonder if this is the solution we are looking for.
