Pivot / cookware


There are times when need to process food that’s difficult to cut, such as poultry, food that are partially frozen or those in spherical shapes. Sometimes when we lose control of the knife and cut into a wrong direction, or when we couldn’t see the blade clearly, we may hurt ourselves.
The elderly, whose musculoskeletal system and responding abilities are weaker, will have more danger when using a knife. Inspired by Archimedes‘s famous quotation, we designed the PIVOT strength saving cutting system.
