Minimal Kitchen Appliances Designed by Naoto Fukasawa

White minimal appliances are the USP of the renowned Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. He has recently designed a minimal kitchen appliances for the Muji brand. The company will be releasing a pop-up toaster and an electric kettle that are not just elegant to add charm to your kitchen but are also functionally smart. Both these appliances will be available at stores in the UK, USA and Europe.

Both these minimal Kitchen appliances will be stocked in the UK from November and released in other European countries in the coming year. Let me give you the gist of both the appliances and how these are different from the other ones in the peer group.

Toaster

The smooth-sided toaster features round edges and functional flat sides that will enable users to place it against the kitchen wall. Adding to it, there is a temperature dial placed on the side, the smart function for frozen bread and button to ensure that toasts pop up are its cool features. Besides, there is a hidden tray that slides out for removing crumbs. Its square shape as of others optimises its smart functionality. Distance between the heater and the bread ensures proper heating.

Electric Kettle

The electric kettle is given the shape of the jug. The rounded kettle is designed in such a way that its easy to hold and use. The kettle can boil a cup of water in 80 seconds and automatically switches off to save electricity.  Underneath is the base of the kettle where electrical lead can be neatly wound. There is a gap between the top and the base to allow the plug to feed through while keeping the appliance flat against the counter-top.
