how to cook blind / kitchen concept for blind

how to cook blind
how to cook blind

Not beeing able to cook average meals by yourself is not just a loss of living quality and can cause bad health conditions but it also lowers your self-esteem. Blind people told us that the main reasons they do not cook were the confusingly high complexity of cooking processes and the extremely high risk of getting hurt by boiling water hot pots or pans. Based on first hand information and experiences we developed a kitchen concept that centres all necessary information and operating elementes in one central guiding element, the controle bar. We also developed a new cooking device that avoids heat related injuries and is easy to operate.
