The Ultimate Compact Kitchen Appliance

Janet Hall October 25, 2012

Imagine if all your countertop appliances for your morning meal were condensed into one compact stackable countertop unit. Dutch designer Jan Des Bouvrie did just that.

Above: The Compact4All is a set of four individual appliances – a kettle, toaster, coffee maker and a juicer – each of which is a 20-square-centimeter cube. The appliances can be used on their own, but when placed as a set, they can be plugged in with one central outlet (the set can be placed in a row or as a cube). Available in Europe in late fall 2012. Spotted on homebuildlife; photographs via Princess Appliances.

Above: The Compact4All toaster is suitable for two slices of bread.

Above: The Compact4All juicer has two juicer heads and features an automatic starting mechanism.

Above: A hot water kettle is part of the Compact4All set.
