In the present day, candle-powered heaters take the form of fondue sets, and even then, most Westerners forget the temperature potential of a single small flame. The Cando has been crafted with inspiration from old-fashioned appliances that harness the warmth of a tiny bit of fire.
Four tea lights sit within a shallow ceramic base, which can be crowned with one of three vessels on top. Options include a compact space heater, a rectangular hot plate, and a flared pot that's ideal for melting chocolate and cheese for dipping. The set up can prepare meals and produce enticing aromas of the edible and incense varieties.
With a market dominated be electronic appliances, the Cando candle-powered heater demonstrates a clever way to carry out the usual tasks without consuming so much energy.
