The cookCloth is a scrumptious idea by Evelina Kudabaite that she submitted for the 2013 Electrolux Design Lab. It looks and feels a lot like a thick tablecloth and functions perfectly as a picnic blanket. Beyond this, it offers the possibility of preparing food on its special surface.

Indeed, you can use the material as a cozy carpet, as a cutting board and as a stovetop. When you're out of the house, the device operates on the power of a battery. A simple touch of your palm to the surface will help you set up a heating element anywhere on the material. This area can cook your food and keep it warm for you while you dig into your first helping. You can even decorate your cookCloth with downloaded patterns.
