This Mixer Could Have Originally Been An Industrial Factory Robot

Mixing and kneading dough for bread can be a back-breaking process. It’s a chore best left to a grandparent who’s been doing it all their life — or a machine like Bosch’s new MaxxiMUM mixer, which actually looks like a robotic arm from an automotive factory that was laid off but has since found other work.


Borg Cube Mini-Fridge: Freezistance Is Futile

It’s apparently taken some 27 years for a marketing genius at Paramount to realise that the cube-shaped Borg ship introduced in Star Trek: The Next Generation bears an uncanny resemblance to a mini fridge. But someone has finally put two and two together resulting in what’s easily one of the best Star Trek-themed products of the past 20+ years.


Rotimatic Hands-On: Yep, The Roti-A-Minute Magic Machine Is Awesome

For about a billion people across the world, nothing is more fundamental to food than fresh, delicious roti. So it’s unfortunate that a batch of five can take half an hour or more to make. But all that’s about to be a thing of the past, thanks to the Rotimatic: The first fully-automated appliance that can churn out one roti every minute — and Gizmodo recently got to see it in action.


A Home Dry Cleaner That Refreshes Your Clothes In Just 10 Minutes

The Swash is being pitched as a sort of personal dry cleaning machine that promises to refresh clothes in just ten minutes. But instead of the toxic chemicals often used at your local dry cleaner, it runs on disposable detergent pods.


This Compact Microwave Is A Must-Have For Your Car

Designer Jake Rich has come up with a better design for the microwave that no longer requires a permanent parking spot on your kitchen counter. His Mediumwave concept has a footprint about the size of a dinner plate, and the traditional metal box form factor of microwaves of old has been improved with a removable dome lid that makes it easier to monitor and stir food as it’s being heated.


A Genuinely Smarter Toaster That Guarantees Perfect Toast

You’d think by now, after at least 100 years of development, mankind would have perfected the toaster. Burnt bread is still an all too common problem though, but maybe, just maybe, Dualit has finally found a solution with a new toaster that measures the room conditions to help ensure perfect browning.


A Fridge That Gives You Retro Style Without The Giant Energy Bill

You might love the retro curves and contours of the old fridge you inherited from your grandmother, but that ancient appliance isn’t doing your monthly electric bill any favours. With GE’s new Artistry fridges you get the best of both worlds, though — modern and efficient refrigeration technology, plus subtle retro styling that isn’t overly hip.


GE Designed A Compact Kitchen Just For Super-Tiny Apartments

Apartments are getting smaller and smaller across the board. And lest the world’s city-dwellers go without appliances, GE is working on a solution: Meet the Micro Kitchen, an innocuous-looking drawer that contains every appliance you could need.


The Flatev Is A Instant Coffee Machine, But For Tortillas

The cup of joe you get from those pod-based instant coffee machines like the Keurig might not be the best you can find, but they sure are convenient. And while instant soup is a logical next step for pod-based dining, the makers of the Flatev have actually found a way to churn out fresh, warm tortillas from a machine on your counter. The future is delicious.


This Supercooling Fridge Chills Food To Sub-Zero Without Freezing It

The current trend in fridge innovation involves adding extra doors, built-in soda dispensers and pointless touchscreens. So it’s refreshing when a company like Mitsubishi brings a truly unique advancement to its new refrigerators in the form of a freezer drawer that chills food to -3C, without actually freezing it.
