    Hey everyone,

    My fiance is studying for a bachelor of arts in product design.  Her current project is to design a product for Electrolux that can save time when preparing a meal and/or make the task easier.  Another option is to instead, design a product that can enhance the experience for families, e.g. a mother who likes to bake with her two young children.

    Could anybody suggest any aspects of cooking/meal preparation that they may struggle with or perhaps any known gaps in the market for new products?  Or maybe any parents that like to prepare food with their children that could provide some insight as to something that could enhance the experience for them?  Preferably some kind of product that is related to dessert preparation e.g. baking.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Something I always thought would be neat to have would be a tabletop Korean-style barbecue for home use. There may be a few out there already but it's not something I have seen a lot of. Would be cool to have the family gather around it at dinner and grill their own meats and such. Good for teaching young adults about the fundamentals of cooking too, methinks.

    The vein is already well mined, as there are scores of smokeless, table-top, grills for Korean style barbecue already available.  Try looking up "Korean Barbecue" on Amazon and you'll see what I mean.

    Sorry to be such a drag,
