Electrolux Design Lab 2010 winner – the Snail Micro Induction Heating


The Snail is a portable heating and cooking device based on magnetic induction processes. Such is the size and versatility of the Snail, it can be stuck directly on to a pot, a pan or a mug to heat the contents. This reduces the amount of space required for conventional cooking while adding portability to the process. Powered by a high density sugar crystal battery, the Snail converts the energy from the sugar, heating up a coil to conduct the magnetic induction process to the utensil. Integrated sensors detect the food type being heated so as to automatically adjust the time and temperature. A simple touch sensitive display with interface helps to monitor the process. Designer – Peter Alwin, India.
