The Cooking Naturally project is my master’s degree thesis on the topic of food waste.
The design phase of the thesis led to All, a connected kitchen device that helps people not to waste food.
All is designed for people living in shared flats or alone. Due to the lifestyles and lack of attention that the market offers to this category of people, they are the categories most exposed to food waste.
All gives these people advice on shopping, food storage, preparation and consumption based on what it has learned from its users.
All is used in the kitchen during food preparation and consumption. It is able to recognise the person using it and understand their words and gestures. All integrates itself into the usual dynamics of the kitchen, letting people concentrate on normal activities, such as preparing a recipe or storing food.
All thus becomes a tool that enhances the responsible cooking experience, not the core of the experience.
