There are plenty of people not challenged by disabilities who are total disasters in the kitchen. Imagine how much more difficult cooking could be if you didn't have your sight? The Prometheus Stove caters to the blind and to others with a range of physical and mental handicaps. Its purpose is to make the practice of preparing food as simple as it possibly can be.

The countertop appliance functions as an oven and a stovetop, minimizing the amount of culinary equipment and thus reducing any added confusion. The box is equipped with a transparent hood which seals in warmth for baking but allows you to look on at the progress of your dish.

Luiz Otavio Moreira Abreu's Prometheus Stove is enhanced with braille inscriptions and various light-up and audio alerts. Temperature can be adjusted easily by moving pots and pans around on the elements and induction heating decreases the risk of the user burning himself.
