A Hob Set Free


Ordine is an innovative cooking solution designed for the modern user. Optimized for small spaces, the design eliminates the need for a bulky traditional stove, clearing the way for more cabinet and counter space.

The design features two hob units that are mounted on a central power hub on the wall. Elevated neatly out of the way, the user must simply grab one or both hobs off the wall and set the desired temperature to activate. Clad in materials consisting of natural wood and copper, the design not only saves valuable kitchen real estate but is made to complement your interior aesthetic on display.

Not Your Mama’s Recipe Book


My mom gave me a handful of those ancient recipe books that have been handed down in my family for decades. It was a nice gesture and all, but I’ll almost certainly never get around to making any of our heirloom recipes because… well… because who has time for that?? If you’re like me, you probably aren’t going to get around to cooking a new dish unless there’s an easy online instructional or YouTube video!

Imagined with this in mind, the Quiett cooktop aims to make our modern cooking lessons even more convenient by putting them right on the surface where the magic happens. A digital screen syncs with your smartphone to play videos, map recipes, and provide step-by-step instructions right on the cooktop itself. This way, you can concentrate on what you’re doing and keep your hands free. Better yet, you can interact with other users and share your favorite recipes all from the convenience of the cooktop!

Heat Where You Need, Not Where You Don’t


A 2018 Red Dot Design Concept winner, the COOKACROSS is aptly named for the unique way in which it adapts to your pots and pans of different size, instead of the other way around! After all, modern kitchen sizes are shrinking and so is the amount of storage space we have. Gone are the days when the average household has enough room for a deluxe set of various and specific vessel sizes, so it only makes sense that our stovetops do the adjusting.

Unlike traditional 4-burner systems, it features a grid of multiple gas outlets with independent valves that shut on/off instantaneously. The smart system automatically detects the size of the pot or pan placed on the surface and turns on the individual gas outlets beneath it. This not only prevents waste but ensures the most even heat distribution of any stovetop solution. Of course, users can also pull up the COOKACROSS app on their smartphone and reduce the number or the heating level with a simple swipe or touch.

The Cookacross is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2018.

The Fireplace Gets a Modern Facelift


Wood burning fireplaces are quickly becoming a thing of the past, especially if you reside in a big city apartment or new home… but that doesn’t mean you can’t get cozy! Designed by a group from the University of Buenos Aires, the AWA home heater is a modern interpretation of the familiar form of the fluted fireplace that utilizes new thermal power tech to fill your home with warmth and ambience.

The design generates thermal power through electrolysis, breaking the bonds in the water molecules and then combusting the separated hydrogen. The hot air rises along the body releasing heat by the means of convection using the ventilations allocated in the upper part. At the same time the central core made of refractory ceramics radiates warmth, even once it’s turned off. Better yet, it uses 40% less energy compared to a classic stove, avoids troublesome code requirements, and be a whole lot safer!

The fire-stove that can even work in a windstorm

Made for extreme outdoor conditions, the Peakboil stove doesn’t only work in the harshest of winds, it actually is optimized to boil your liquids faster than usual. Designed by the students at ETH Zurich, the Peakboil is a 3D printed stove and jug with a specially designed burner and chimney system. A series of Venturi nozzles on the burner use localized pressure differentials to feed the flames inside the combustion chamber, which is protected from wind by high sides and a narrow top chimney. The stylized chimney walls increase the surface area, allowing more heat to be provided to the liquid within the container, increasing its temperature substantially faster than a regular stove and kettle.

The entire jug and burner system are 3D printed, to achieve their specialized design. The complex, single-piece combustion chamber couldn’t be manufactured using conventional techniques, and is only possible via additive manufacturing. Selective laser melting was used to fuse metal powder together in layers just 1/30th of a millimeter thick, and to progressively create 3D details from scratch.

A Camp Chef’s Best Friend


Cookout rethinks outdoor cooking by taking inspiration from the age-old kerosene stove. However, it’s much easier to use, maintain and carry compared to traditional kerosene stoves. Simplified into 5 primary components, it can be disassembled and reassembled in seconds to clean or pack. Better yet, two interchangeable surfaces make it possible to switch between cooking styles in a cinch. Grill with the ribbed metal surface, then swap it out for the pot supporter to boil water or heat soup and other items!

The smallest gas-stove ever?


That entire proverb of big things coming in small packages just got proven by OUTAD’s travel stove. This tiny yet mighty stove can sit in your hand when folded up, and when you pull out the extendable legs, you have yourself a rather convenient stove that hooks to any isobutane gas supply (you can even get adapters that allow you to use butane or propane tanks).

The design of the OUTAD was envisioned with outdoor usage in mind. It comes with a 360° wind-guard that keeps the fire burning no matter how windy it is outside. It comes crafted in stainless steel, weighs just over half a pound, and fits into a 4 inch X 4 inch box. And you’re still hacking away like a troglodyte at tree branches to make your primitive campfire. Tut-tut…

A New Way to Warm Your Hands


It’s one thing to feel the warmth of a fire from a distance and something entirely different to touch it. That’s the idea from Natura, an innovative stove and winner of a 2017 RedDot Design Award.

The main body of the stove is composed of steel with cork profiles placed and fixed to its structure. These profiles are separated from the steel structure to prevent the cork from darkening over time. Aesthetically, it’s reminiscent of vintage steam radiators only with a modern material twist. The cork material also does double-duty as a security layer, allowing users to safely touch and feel the wood stove.

Kettle With A Purpose


Experts say that about 70% of the heat generated on a fire stove is lost, and this is quite a concern in terms of efficiency and conservation. The Heat-Save Kettle addresses this issue and is designed to absorb the heat-loss and regenerate it as heat energy. Essentially, you fill the ring with water, which absorbs the excess heat. The heated water can now be used for other purposes – a warm soak or tea!

Designers: Li Yi, Zhang Sen, Hao Hao & Qian Cheng


“compatible with conventional pots and pans and pots. The ring-style design of the base offers a bigger capacity to contain water. The patterns on the metal surface provide a bigger inner surface area to maximise heat absorption and air circulation for efficient cooking,” says designers Li Yi.
