Cooking may become slightly easier if the CookDial ever goes from concept to reality. The CookDial is a pot that lets you know when your water has begun boiling.
Having to keep a watchful eye on a pot of boiling water can be annoying to say the least. The CookDial has an adjustable handle that lets you set the time based upon how much water is in the pot. When the water has begun boiling the timer will ding to inform you. Simple kitchenware redesigns such as the CookDial could make cooking a lot easier and simpler. While most designers are focusing on high-tech appliance redesigns, they might want to begin thinking smaller and simpler. Not everyone can afford a touchscreen fridge, but I'm sure people would be willing to spring for a timed pot.
