We look for compact and easy to carry stuff when going out for an adventure. We wish to carry minimum luggage including the essentials. A portable and compact cooking solution is what many look for, here are some stoves that will help.
The Wrap stove is a cool stove that wraps up like a hand towel and is portable to the correct sense of the word. The strip stove has tiny button like magnets on it, these magnets stick to the vessel on which the wrap stove is wound. Food is cooked or warmed inside the vessel using the induction technology of the wrap stove. There is a tab bearing a touch screen at one end of the stove. Unfold the tab after wrapping the stove on to the vessel and it turns on. The temperature can be increased or decreased via the touch screen.
Designer Jeong Woo Hyeokhas created pebbles that help in warming food and cooking. These pebbles use induction technology. The set of these can be combined and placed under a vessel to cook food. What’s more interesting is that these pebbles will help the user beat the cold. The temperature of these can be lowered to make our body warm. The user can warm his feet, hands or chest with individual pebbles.
