The food processor’s successor


No. Adding internet capabilities isn’t always the best way to update a product. Sometimes you can do something paradigm shifting through design. This Food Processor by Dustin Lee shakes things up. For starters, it’s upside down. Well, literally! The motor’s been made lightweight, and has been shifted to the top of the device, allowing it to integrate completely with the device’s form, and moreover, it is a whole lot safer, since you’d have to detach the motor/lid to access the food compartment, there’s no way the blade will be spinning when you do.

Appliances can be upgraded technologically without being given IoT capabilities. The food processor comes with a slick display and a rotating dial that allows you to determine the settings for the device. You can use the processor to chop, pulse, puree, knead and much more just at the simple turn of a dial. The display in the center is large and at eye level, which means readability, and a most definitely seamless user experience!

    Hmmm, a good start but it needs LOTS of improvements…
    – The blade seems inadequate to slicing & chopping activities. Most processors use a top blade so the slicing/chopping is done at the top of the unit, thus leveraging the pressure of the feed shoot. BTW, where IS the feed shoot on this design? since the motor is at the top, there’s no room for the shoot.
    – in other designs, the motor is on the bottom for stability — this design seems top-heavy to me or under-powered.
    – The power cord is at the top, meaning that it’s easier to tip over by tripping, placing something on the cord (like an arm or a bowl).
    – the blade remains in the bowl after use, UNDER the food, which means that we have to dig it out. Since it’s usually razor-sharp, this is a potential hazard, right?
