Kitchen Tools For the Blind

Tools for the kitchen have been evolving for decades, with ever-smarter gadgets and devices to help us cook with ease. Implements for the blind, however, haven’t evolved very much, making cooking a much more laborious and dangerous job. When you can’t see, there’s much more danger in simple tasks like chopping, cutting, boiling, and baking.  Folks Kitchenware is hoping to change that with their innovative line of products that were developed directly alongside blind participants.  The results are a series of simple yet ingenious tools that are safer, more intuitive, and more ergonomic for users.
