iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2017

This is an improved design of a traditional pickles pot. If you need a long time storage of the pickles, the pickle pot should be sealed and kept it in a dark and cool condition after putting the vegetables inside the pot in order to let the saccharomycetes well fermented. By rotating the lid, you can switch the lid between transparent and opaque so that you may check the condition inside the pot and easily identify different kinds of vegetables in each individual pot without opening the lid. When two polarizers allow consistent light direction, the lid is transparent. Conversely, the lid is non-transparent black.

This traditional pickle pot brings great convenience for users. Applying the principle of polarization, the lid allows users to 'see inside' without opening the pot.
