From New Zealand, a hideaway stove

New Zealand company makes the flat "CookSurface" with retractable pan supports.


Stoves may not immediately come to mind when you think of cool gadgets, but that perception could change when you see the Izona CookSurface from New Zealand-based Fisher & Paykel. The colors alone make it look like something out of Tron. An LED indicator tells you how hot the burner is, according to Appliancist, and beside that there are dials to control the flame. But the coolest feature isn't digital at all: The pan supports retract. This means that, when not in use, the CookSurface looks entirely flat. The result is much more surface area to do stuff like cut your vegetables and, of course, impress anyone touring your kitchen.
