5 Weird and Wonderful Appliance Accessories from Kickstarter

Kickstarter is the perfect platform for the little guy. It’s the place to go for people with a brilliant idea and the know how to pull it off, but lacking one little thing – the money to make it!

There are zany Kickstarter campaigns and there are campaigns to enhance appliances around the home. Our thoughts on the latter? Shut up and take our money.

Fabulous Forming

First up, a little device called the Formbox. In conjunction with your humble vacuum cleaner, this invention lets you create moulds for all sorts of materials. The only limit is your creativity.

Features we love:

  • Versatility – you can make moulds in any shape you can think of
  • Simple to use for both novices and master crafters
  • Can even be used to make jelly or chocolate moulds for edible treats!

Formboxes aren’t available to buy just yet as they’re still in production, but you can reserve yours here.

Perfect Pan Frying

Sometimes cooking with a frying pan can involve a bit of guesswork. You never know exactly how hot your pan is. Pantelligent takes away the mystery. Can you monitor the exact temperature of your pan using their handy app? Yep. Can you follow recipes to ensure you cook your food for exactly the right amount of time? Also yep. The app even tells you exactly when to flip your steak using science.

Features we love:

  • An app with step-by-step guidance so you can get perfectly cooked food every time
  • Notifications when your food is done or the heat needs adjusting
  • Instructions read out so no fumbling around with your phone when you have wet or floury hands

Pantelligent pans are on the market so you can get yours now.

Reduced Waste Washing

Tiny little fibres that come off your clothes when you wash them are completely harmless, right? Think again! Micro waste is actually a big problem for the environment. It can pollute the water in seas and rivers and kill the fish that live there too. Thankfully the Guppy Friend wash bag catches these deadly microfibers and stops the pollution.

Features we love:

  • Clothes are protected and look new for longer
  • Couldn’t be simpler to use
  • The environment is saved!

Using a wash bag even helps to look after your washing machine too. Items that get tangled in the wash, like tights and bra straps, can cause unbalanced loads, which wear the internal parts. Wash bags keep clothes separate instead.

Whilst Guppy Friend wash bags aren’t currently available to non-backers, we’ll be keeping tabs on their campaign page and the Guppy Friend website for updates.

Timesaving Tech

Knock, knock, who’s there? A genius little device that transforms the surfaces of your home into transmitters to control your tech, that’s who! It’s not every day that a brilliant idea comes a knocking, but we love the concept of Knocki. All you have to do is attach it to a surface, knock and it works with your smartphone and home WiFi connection to do all sorts of clever things. If you have smart appliances even better as Knocki lets you control those too.

Features we love:

  • Can be used on, under and behind surfaces like kitchen counters, tables and walls
  • Lets you find your lost phone, control your music and snooze your alarm
  • Available in both modern white and stylish black designs

If you want to get yourself a Knocki they’re available to pre-order.

Features we love:

  • Black, silver and brass versions are available
  • They’re 10 x stronger than conventional fridge magnets
  • Each magnet can hold up to 25 sheets of paper!
