To explore the idea of continuity and change in the design of products we are going to investigate implements used in Indian kitchens – to see where they came from, how they are adapted to Indian food and cooking methods and how they have changed in response to changes in taste and lifestyle.

We have brought into the classroom a toy kitchen set – a set quite appropriately called INDIA TODAY! Working in groups of three and four, we will be studying the pressure cooker, idli steamer, knives and other cutting implements, chakla-belan, oven, gas stove, tiffin box, refrigerator, orange juicer, cup and saucer, food processor and toaster.
