Designer Marcial Ahsayane of Brussels has designed an oil bottle and pestle that combine to make a rolling pin.
Called Roll & Mix, the set is designed for making pizza and screws together with a metal thread to make three utensils in one.
Here's some more information from Ahsayane:
Roll & Mix
Roll & Mix is a multifunctional kitchen roller. It is split in two halves. Each half has a different function by itself. One is an oil bottle and the other one is a pestle for grinding and mixing. These two parts can be threaded in order to be used as a roller as well. So the user has three food preparation utensils compacted in one.
We used to get dough pizzas, pastry or batter in the shop. But sometimes we appreciate to prepare dough by ourselves. It is “the handmade time” we used to spent during weekend. Sometimes as a relaxing hobby, others because we have guests for dinner and we want to do our best in the kitchen.
The design provides a compact tool for the kitchen, easy to store and clean. The same tool can roll dough and help us to mix natural food for the sauce. The design is a three in one product. It provides the tools used for roll and mix in a compact way. So the user has an easy way to cook in the kitchen and to store it.
Two metallic threads in the middle made the design compact or detachable depending of the function desirable. The compact function is for roller. Is when we use flour, water and yeast to made dough. The detachable function is for mixing. Is when we need to add oil with a bottle and grid/mix with the other hand.
The form is composed by two joined white bottles. White color provides a clean perception due the product touch the food in the preparing process. The dimension of each bottle is the standard proportion for a 11oz (33cl) bottle. It is for instance, the proportion for beer bottle. It is very useful in order to grab it. And the two bottles threaded provides 18.78” (477mm) length for the roller function. Wrinkled texture is necessary for the roller function in order to avoid the dough doesn´t stick on the roller and keep a good grip during the mixing process.
We don´t have to much time to cook elaborate food. The grandmother cook is lost. Contradictorily we have more resources to get traditional recipes via internet. So the design identifies the possibility to boost the handmade preparing food and recover old traditional cooking techniques. It is know by everybody that we don't have too much time to cook. But also is know that all of us love the hand made food at home. The designs invites to users to cook their own pizzas. Encourage to cook own pasta dough, either as a hobby or to offer or best cuisine to the guests.
