This simple cooking platform is all about compactness and portability. As a closed structure it’s very small and occupies very little space. It actually looks like a grenade, hence the name. When you open it, the structure is big enough to hold a pot and it allows you to cook a delicious meal. The Heat Grenade is powered by paper thin batteries made by Cenimat. It’s a great item to have when you go camping or just to have in your home in case the power goes off.

The Heat Grenade is one of the 25 concepts chosen from 1300 creations in the 2011 Electrolux Design Lab Contest. The first prize is a 8-month paid internship at an Electrolux global design centre and € 5,000. The idea was to challenge designers to create appliances than can be used at home and beyond. The Heat Grenade has good chances at winning but there are also other designs in the game.
