Bead Pot / Pot

Bead Pot
Bead Pot

This product is a pot for the blind people who are difficult to recognize the temperature of pot or plates when cooking.
The silver bead in the middle of the pot handle moves according to the temperature of the pot. A silver bead on a handle that is close to the pot means a low temperature. Conversely, if silver bead is far from the pot, it means the high temperature of the pot.
The bead is slightly protruding from the surface of the handle, helping the blind to guess the temperature of the pot from the position of the bead. By doing so, blind people can avoid the risk of burns when cooking.
