The kitchen is full of hazards for anyone who lets his hand slip and the wrong time, which is why it's so clever and remarkable that these blind cooking utensils have been developed, specifically to support the culinary adventures of those who are visually impaired.

Designer Kevin Chiam has done a brilliant job of observing the needs of blind people as they prepare food, developing a suite of tools he calls his Folks Kitchenware Collection. Within it are a knife with a safety guide, a spoon with an inflatable bobble, an alternative pot lid with a large handle and steam escape, as well as a stove element pedestal that helps to demonstrate the boundaries of the heated surface. Every blind cooking aid here is thoughtfully designed for optimal user-friendliness.
