Cod-Shaped Cookers

The La Vobla Home Smokery Makes Fish for Supper Fancier

— August 18, 2011 — Unique
There are several ways to prepare meats in your own kitchen, but the La Vobla Home Smokery affords aspiring chefs a rare domestic alternative. Frying and baking can get a little bland after a while, but this innovative appliance puts smoked fish on the menu.

Designed especially for cooking the chicken of the sea, his indoor/outdoor barbecue by Natalya Bublik is actually shaped like the scaly marine creatures. It takes on a smooth aquadynamic form, complete with one pectoral fin, a caudal fin and a sort of face. These quirky details even perform functions.

The first acts as a handle for opening the tuna-shaped contraption to reveal its fishbone grill. The second is a removable flipper and the third provides electronic controls. The La Vobla Home Smokery even incorporates a filter for safe indoor salmon-smoking, and the whole thing can be easily cleaned in the dishwasher after use.

3. Smart Home Technology - Smart home technology companies can capitalize on the trend of smart and automated cooking devices by developing innovative products that seamlessly integrate with the connected home ecosystem, providing enhanced cooking experiences.
