Innovative appliance for nuts seeds and spices!

Galamba | Apr 12, 201604:53 AM     12

Dear community,

I am currently studying for my PhD on product design, and thought it was a good idea to come up with something useful and innovative on the field of small kitchen appliances.

I am seeking some feedback and have an opinion from others that love food! While i do enjoy having a good conversation about food and cooking, let this be a honest disclaimer that i am indeed doing this for the purpose of enriching my research!

To thank you I'd like to give something back: should you have any Portuguese recipe that needs translation, I'd be glad to help and translate that for you!

I am a daily consumer of roasted nuts and seeds, and when i use spices i normally roast them just a little before grinding.

I do dislike having to turn an oven on or using one of the stove's discs just for that... also no one likes charred nuts.

Do you share this experience?

My idea was to have some sort of stand-alone small heating device that would ensure continuous motion and, along with a timer, one could toast nuts or seeds without constant supervision (and maybe get to answer to that email or get the coffee going..)

I for myself find this useful but I am really interested in knowing what you think about it! - please give me any kind of critique, all is valuable to me!

Thank you all!
