We have learned in our lifetime, that you cannot cook your food on a rainy day, while outside, because it would be like going surfing on a lake. Thanks to this ingenious device, all of that is now known as nonsense. Introducing, The Snail. This small device is designed by Peter Alwin, and he probably is among those whom in their childhood tried to light a fire during pouring rain. I know I did. The name was inspired by the familiar aspect of a common snail that would stick naturally to anything. This device has been designed to stick to metal utensils, there are magnets on the bottom silicon base. The Snail, has a distinctive shape, it’s small, lightweight, and very clever. It’s a portable heating and cooking device, and it’s based on magnetic induction processes and it sticks directly onto any cooking pots to heat their contents.
I think this is brilliant! Not only you reduce the space required for cooking a normal meal, but it also adds portability to the ongoing process.

The Snail is powered by high density sugar crystal battery. The energy is converted from the sugar which heats up a coil to conduct the magnetic induction process to the utensil. When I mentioned the snail is clever, I was not referring that it has a super-micro-computer inside. It has sensors integrated in the outer-shell. Now we are getting to the clever part, these sensors detect food type being heated and it will automatically adjust the time and temperature that the food needs to be prepared. This device has a simple touch sensitive display to monitor the process. This amazing little helper, will give us the ability to create better organized kitchens in the near future and also a smaller electricity bill.
