Operating a kitchen with less space assumes good organisation and tidiness. Every kitchentool needs it own place to be ready at any time. Pans, pots dishes and devices are mostly very bulky and dont fit in cupboards or dishwasher properly.
The presented product is a frying pan, which is able to change its shape. If the pan is not beeing used, the handle is turned on the side. It can be stored in a cupboard or dishwasher more easily. The mechanism of the hinge was arranged to be locked in ‚cooking position.‘ By turning the handle tightly rightwards, a bearing inside the hinge bounces out of a notch. Now the handle is free to be moved in ‚unused position.‘ By turning the handle back in ‚cooking position‘ the bearing flips back in the notch. Now the handle is locked again and the pan is ready for usage.
