Meet June, the intelligent oven that really wants to enhance your meals and baked goods. It/she (?) aims to erase the popular AI 'taking over the world' stigma brought to us by the likes of our friends LipNet and the painting AI system. Even though June is in fact an
Design plays a major role when it comes to sustainability and global welfare. Everything from building efficient refugee tents and sustainable cities to recyclable batteries requires design thinking. But have you ever thought about the role design plays when it comes to food waste? Food waste is actually one of
The social and political landscape may be murky these days, and the hectic holiday season is only just underway, but here's a glimmering greasy beacon of hope: the Fondoodler. This slightly heinous contraption takes your grated cheese of choice and melts it into a spreadable stream. It's like a hot
As I write this it's 8:15am in Manhattan on Thanksgiving morning, and it's dead quiet. But I know what's coming: By mid-afternoon I'll start hearing fire truck sirens. Each Thanksgiving a subset of families take their eyes off of the ball and experience turkey fires like this one: If it's
Rikki USA is a Seattle based manufacturer of sauces, marinades and dressings, with clients in the private label category as well as their own retail product offering. In partnership with Rikki's parent company Yamasa, designojo completed a rebranding for Rikki USA. The redesign encompassed visual positioning, logo, retail packaging and a B2B focused website. The positioning of the new design was to reflect a more contemporary, healthy and natural brand without the typical visual cues.
Ever had a butter dish that didn't fit your butter? Not to put too fine a point on it, but it might be a territorial thing. East coast butter sticks are long and thin and West coast sticks are thick and stout. They each clock in at 4oz., but the
I'm not terribly attached to roasted chestnuts or other romantic/dubious street food, but man I love good paper goods. Hongyang Sun and Xiuhua Zhang, students at Henan University of Technology in Zhengzhou, China, came up with a satisfyingly simple solution for messy snacks. Their 'Double Food Bag' simply adds an
I've been on a mission to discover the best new kitchen products on the market through my own rigorous baking tests. This week, I put the Kickstarter smash hit, WHISK WIPER, through the Core77 Test Kitchen: Cornbread Challenge. WHISK WIPER has raked in over $67,000 on Kickstarter, blowing way past
As part of Dutch Design Week 2016, food designer Chloé Rutzerveld created a modern take on the classic Dutch stroopwaffle treat.

Everyone who keeps some wine on hand, whether it's just a few bottles or a full cellar, needs some way to stash those bottles. And I keep finding more interesting designs for meeting that need. There's a lot to like about the modular Nook wine racks, which are sold in
Farming is Filled with Emotions For the over two million American families who farm professionally, their work is toil and struggle, risk and fear. It is also joy and love, commitment and loyalty.

If there is one thought every design entrepreneur shares, it is this: "I often find product categories where I can't find an offering that meets my standards for function/design/quality/cost." This then drives them to see if they can do better by producing and selling their own design. In the case
Most toast lovers have a butter spreading system they're okay with, but it's often a good-enough situation at best. Having soft butter at hand usually means either messy melting or a barely-covered counter top dish that welcomes in bacteria and funk if you don't use it fast enough. And if
This lightweight #8 skillet is our first product for startup, the Field Company.. It is the result of a comprehensive research and design project which culminated in an extremely successful launch on Kickstarter.

There's major buzz around the soon-to-be-funded Kickstarter measuring spoon, Polygons, for good reasons—the spoon's innovative design lies flat when not in use and, with the help of carefully placed creases, folds into four different tablespoon/teaspoon measurements similar to origami. Here at Core77, we've been excited about the Polygons concept
It's every pizza lover's dream to have a wood-fired brick oven in their kitchen. So far Jimmy Kimmel's the only guy I've heard of to install one. He's got the money to do that. Most of us don't. A team of designers in Slovenia looked at pizza-making as a problem

An innate fascination with food is a structural part of being human, but what about structural food? Dinara Kasko is an architect-trained pastry chef, and her work melds classic desserts with stark geometry and 3d printing. While inviting, Kasko's creations look less like food and more like architectural renderings or
A2's newly-hatched brainchild, Bakelicious, is a creatively cohesive line of baking tools that adds a touch of personality to practical objects. Just a little icing on the cake for your weekend baking needs!
Here's Australian inventor Mark Murray being openly mocked on Shark Tank last year. The sharks not only declined to fund him, but laughed at him: Murray persisted with the Hamdog on his own, and began selling them at fairs in Australia this summer: Somehow, the Hamdog went viral. This week

Steve Giralt isn't just a photographer; the dude is a Visual Engineer, according to his bio, and as you'll see below the title looks well-earned. Check out the crazy automated rig that he built in order to shoot this video of floating hamburger ingredients magically falling into place: Deconstructed
For the precision-minded baker or cook: These measuring spoons called Levoons have two clever innovations. Observe: Of my friends who cook, some operate intuitively, i.e. "A dash of this, a pinch of that." Others follow recipes as fastidiously as if they're reading instructions for how to build an ICBM. Levoons
Our challenge was to interpret Moen’s DNA from their highly interactive, largely style-driven, and consumer-facing product line into a function-driven product that delivers all the benefits that consumers are looking for. We worked closely with the Moen team to create a unique garbage disposal that visually communicates the power of the Vortex advanced chopping technology and Sound Shield noise deadening. The products were designed for both home owner and professional to install with confidence
The Toasteroid is a Bluetooth equipped chance to customize your sandwich in the modern fashion: by using your iPhone. This humble corner of the culinary arts wasn't exactly begging for a web 3.0 update, but damn it, it's getting one. The pitch is simple: your abstract brown toast is crappy
Drinks in the era of pod coffee makers and Soylent coffee-meals are modern and efficiency-minded, but oldschool beverages and methods don't have to be difficult. The new Manual Tea Maker No. 1 by Manual wants to refresh appreciation for the minimalism of tea. Much like their take on pour over
We Americans don't have much time left to barbecue, because summer's almost over and our election is leading towards the end of the world. So let's get in a few good Yea-or-Nays before everything goes to hell in a handbasket. This one is barbecue-related.
Brewing beer, much like pickling foods, has kept humans alive and happy about it for millennia. The appeal is both creative and detail oriented, and to do things right modern home brewers often need a lot of space for the collection of tanks, buckets, carboys and other gear. The Catalyst
As I've said before, I freaking hate the design of the martini glass. It is the dumbest, least-ergonomic form factor for quaffing gin that I can think of. The top-heavy form makes them easy to topple over and break (particularly the stupid-wide ones that every bar started stocking after "Sex
