Kitchen Appliances That Bite


"QUANTUM SHOT" #641
Link - article by Radhika Seth of YankoDesign and A. Abrams



"The Little Toaster That Changed My Life"
Quirky Kitchen Appliances with Somewhat Crazy Look and Feel to Them


(image and more info via)

A part of me thinks that mainstream designers focus more on creating sleeker, streamlined appliances. The general consensus would be to appreciate their efforts, but for someone like me, who gets to view designs as quirky and bizarre as the following... another sleek toaster is like drinking flat Coke. If you enjoy the fizz and appreciate spunk, come join me fitting a hypothetical kitchen with some really quirky appliances! (Also read our previous Kitchen Tech for Geeks article).

1. The Smile Cooking Toaster by Xu Yan Xiang

Does your toast smile at you in the morning or is it a grumpy old man? Know for sure via the transparent heating elements. FYI, I DKDC (don’t know, don’t care) how most of the appliances featured in this list will work, they are here solely on the basis of the bizarreness:

2. Bang Bang Egg Steamer by Lo Chi Di

If you think pop-up toaster was the best invention, think again! Hardboiled egg gets better with its own pop-up niche to cook in. Bang Bang Egg Steamer, it’s the ultimate way to make an egg:



3. Portable Toaster by Been Kim

Butter Knife? No, Toaster Knife... spreads warmth and glow to make a crisp toast! The dainty butterflies that flit across actually represent the heat-strength of this Portable Toaster:



4. RabMixer by Ming Tong

Rabbits like carrots, but RabMixer here can help you bake awesome carrot cakes. Grab the bunny by its ear and get bake-happy!



5. Toast Messenger by Sasha Tseng

Instant reminders that you can wolf down; bite after bite... Messages on your toast are signed on courtesy the Toast Messenger. I can imagine using this mode of communication with my husband, when we fight and are not talking with each other! Me: “Make your own toast mister!”



6. Rollable Microwave Oven by Hyun Choi

A space saving microwave concept... you can’t have anything more bizarre and obvious than this in you kitchen!



7. The Radical Six Part Toaster by Matt Gossington

For pure ornamental purposes only! This is the six slots toaster that looks like a cute star fish from the top:



8. Throwing Knife Block - allows you to vent your anger in a sort-of civilized way, more info.

9. Egg Cuber. Being a Borg means that you love everything squared and cubed off. So, here we go, here is an Egg Cuber for a perfect Borg Breakfast (order it here):

10. Medieval Espresso Machine. As an even crazier addition to our exceptional and gorgeous Espresso Machines collection, here is the one FROM THE DUNGEON, no less. Get your last wish, a frothy cup of espresso / latte, of course!



Order it here, but exercise caution with offering its espresso as a last wish, of course.

11. Pacman Oven Mitts and Microwave Smores Maker go well together in a geeky kitchen (more info here):

12. A few bits and ends that may have escaped your sophisticated kitchen design tastes: Sharky Tea Infuser by Pablo Matteoda (left) and Calf And Half milk dispenser (right) -

Computer Cursor Oven Mitts (left) and D-battery Salt and Pepper Shakers (right):

With all these (or even one of these) appliances and utensils your kitchen will be truly geeked-out and outfitted in an inimitable "Hungry for Food, Fun and Weirdness" style. Catch our next installment in this series, as we no doubt will continue to seek out similar household masterpieces.

These are too cool! The smiley face toaster is actually a pretty nice design (aside from the faces). My favorites though would have to be the oven mitts. I'm a total geek though. : )

I can't see the point why do we need to cube the egg. The car bread toaster is the best . Ha ha!

Your comment for item number six is a bit mystifying to me... a delicate part of the human anatomy? Unless the guy who wrote the article has two dicks, I can't make out any obvious resemblance to any part of the human anatomy that I'm aware of.
