A pan lid holder that enhances the user experience during cooking

About this project

For my bachelor final project, I designed a kitchen tool for the company “TNK Brand”. The product holds the lid of the pan, during stirring. It provides a better cooking experience and can be used with every saucepan.

During the design process, prototyping was used. In early stages 3D-printing to test physical parameters and find interesting shapes. Also silicone moulding in custom turned aluminium mould was used to test heat resistance of the product. Turning was considered as production method, but didn't provide the desired amount of form freedom. For the final prototype welding was used.
