The term "portable" is often used to describe objects that might be more compact than usual, but perhaps not necessarily easy to carry. In the case of the Portable Electric Stove by Dada6, the concept was undoubtedly intended to be toted.
A generously rectangular opening in one side of the device is supposed to be the handle. This physical feature is quite predominant in relation to the heating element attached. The base of the contraption integrates a place for the electrical cord to be wrapped up so that you can easily pick up the tiny independent stovetop and move it around. The Portable Electric Stove by Dada6 is ideal for dorm rooms and offices that regularly require its storage.
