Muddler / muddler


In a chilly winter, you always want to have a cup of hot coffee in the café. However, the drink always gets cold so quickly after you read a few pages of a book.
In order to solve the problem, we blend the idea of disposable heat pad into the stirrer and design the reusable “heating bar”. The user only has to lightly bend it to produce heat. Not only can it keep the drink warm but it can also be used as a stirrer. The user can also take the “heater” off the product and put it into the drink to go. The temperature of the drink can then be maintained between 140℉ to 158℉ for around 6 to 7 hours.
