When Captain Kirk reheats his king prawn bhuna, I’ll bet it’s in a microwave like this. No person in the future will be caught dead without one these exquisitely designed appliances set to become more of a fashion statement than a food-nuker.
So smooth and minimalist is Martin Zampach’s design that there’s barely a pointy bit on it. There are two controls. The ring at the near end twists to set the time and the big blue button fires it up. It’s a slight concern that he hasn’t added a temperature control but then whenever I try to defrost something I always end up cooking it anyway. The door opens like so…
…and you and your friends can stand around and watch it glow beautifully blue while it irradiates both your food and your livers.
Unfortunately, this wonderfully conceived piece of kit is named the “Bagetty Microwave” because, according to the designer’s website, it was “inspired by shape of big oblong baguette”. Can’t have it all I suppose.
