The induction cooking system is homogeneous and very easy to use. All you need to do is place the Lapitec Chef silicone mat on your worktop to activate the touch controls and turn on the system.

Fooding, a new concept of kitchen appliances from Yifeeling Design, combines the best of microwave and air fryer. Turns out we can have it all. Inspired by the bulbous shape of an astronaut helmet, Fooding merges the traditional rectangular shape of the microwave with the modern rounded edges of the deep fryer. While air fryers heat up some tasty dishes, they usually take up a lot of counter space, making them less user-friendly. By combining the air fryer with the microwave, Fooding takes up less space in the kitchen and merges two appliances into one for a one-stop-shop.
Made from heat-resistant, food-safe plastic, Egguins are an innovative way to store, boil or serve eggs.

Submerge the Egguins in a pot of boiling water using the handle above, and simply remove them when you have finished boiling them to a softness or hardness of your choice.

Requiring no electricity, Zeer pots only need a source of water and a little dry air to keep produce and other foods cool. Reinterpreting the Zeer pot for modern use, London designer Ellie Perry created the Terracooler, a three-tier pot-in-pot fridge that fits perfectly at home on the kitchen counter.

By refining his universal kitchen sink, Baltazar identified kitchen obstacles for one-handed dishwashers and sought to resolve them with Moray. After a series of periods of indirect observation and ideation, Baltazar learned that it was less about introducing new tools and more about rethinking the sink from the basin upwards.
