Stewing of food is a Chinese cooking method that has been in use since the Bronze Age. Even today, it is widely adopted in the countryside, and it is even indispensable in many modern kitchens in big cities. The Bei Shan-Ceramic Slow Cooker combines contemporary design with traditional elements. The lid features several hill-like elevations, from which, when cooking, steam emerges. The concise lines in the lid and handle areas evoke traditional Chinese landscape paintings.
Statement by the Jury
This cooker transfers a traditional method of cooking into a contemporary product by means of a minimalist design and the use of new technologies. The distinctive steam outlets are an attractive feature.
