Many of you knew exactly what this week’s mystery object is: a hot plate. The Cooka electric cooking pad’s portability makes it a must-have in any small kitchen or for any camping trip. Maurizio Maiorana’s design includes three silver burner plates that are surrounded by tiny holes that emit a stream of hot air so no excess heat is lost during cooking. And when you’re done cooking, simply wipe it and fold it to stow away. Its simplicity makes cooking easy for even the most amateur of cooks – that’s probably why I’m so in love with it!



Check back next week to guess at a new item!
