Optimized for small spaces, the design eliminates the need for a bulky traditional stove, clearing the way for more cabinet and counter space.

Elevated neatly out of the way, the user must simply grab one or both hobs off the wall and set the desired temperature to activate.

This 3-in-1 dishwasher design by Fotile hides your dishwasher and dryer elegantly by welding it to your stainless steel sink. The dishwasher has a larget fillet that facilitates accelerated rotation of water flow to improve the efficiency of wash cycles. Another great perk of it being fitted in your sink is that it reduces the hassle of cleaning inside the appliance. It also has a flat embedded ‘lid’ which makes it easy for you to keep your countertop clean while not sacrificing surface space. Apart from killing 99.99% of bacteria from the dishes, it also doubles up as a fruit and vegetable purifier. Using ultrasonic technology and a turbulent spray, it removes 90% of pesticide residue from your produce. This dishwasher claims to have no blind spots – 360-degree cleaning and drying!

Designed to be your go-to for any cooking measurements, the Kitchen Cube integrates all measuring vessels into its singular, yellow, cube-shaped body.

The cube comes with both metric and US measuring units molded into its unique design, allowing you to even measure out your ingredients in milliliters if the recipe calls for it.

Biden’s campaign assures voters the U.S. ‘is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House’

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden assumed reporters wanted to ask him about the lack of charges in the Breonna Taylor killing when he landed in Wilmington on Wednesday night after a trip to North Carolina. They were more curious about his reaction to President Trump’s point-blank refusal to commit to leaving office if the voters reject him in November. “What country are we in?” Biden asked, explaining that he was “being facetious” — and then explaining it again because it’s hard to communicate facetiousness with a face mask on. “Look, he says the most irrational things. I don’t know what to say about it. But it doesn’t surprise me.”

Biden’s campaign had already put out a more pointed statement: “The American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”

A lot of people were very disturbed by Trump’s prediction that “there won’t be a transfer [or power], frankly,” if you “get rid of the ballots” — and “it’s a sharply atypical response for a president, certainly,” Philip Bump writes at The Washington Post, trying to parse what Trump meant to say. But “given his rhetoric in 2016, this was not an atypical response for Trump.” But even if you translate Trump in the most generous light, he said, “it’s disconcerting because it reinforces that Trump’s interest in appearing to be victorious remains a primary concern,” certainly more than the legitimacy of America’s constitutional system of government.

Interior Designer Eliza Gran Shares Her Perfectly Messy Pavlova Recipe

The pavlova—a layer cake of meringue, cream, and fresh fruit—has some qualities in common with Eliza Gran’s approach to design. Pavlovas are elegant, versatile, and balanced. For the top, you use what you have. And in order to make the most beautiful pavlova, you have to have the confidence to make a mess.

Chickens, ducks, turkeys, and dogs roam freely across Eliza Gran’s Los Angeles living room, where freshly cut flowers are crowded lusciously into one of a kind vases, and vintage textiles, records, and books adorn most corners. “It’s always been super important to me that home is a nice place to be, with a lot of books, a lot of good music, food, flowers…” she says. “It needs to be a place where your kids and their friends want to hang out—otherwise they’ll turn 13 and you’ll never see them again.”

When Gran moved from New York to California, long before eggs were sparse in American supermarkets mid-pandemic, she replaced her Brooklyn-bought dozens with brown, white, and blue eggs pinched from her birds’ respective coops. In between appointments with her interior design clients, Gran maintains her acres of trees that fruit everything from blood oranges to guavas.

Gran’s sunny ecosystem, in which she tends to animals, vegetation, and her three teenagers, grew from sad circumstances. Gran had initially moved away from New York, where she grew up, for her husband’s job. Their family lived in a small cottage on the Venice canals, where Gran had developed her now-omnipresent handmade pom pom baskets. But then her dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and Gran realized her life needed to change in order to support him and her mother.

“I thought, ok, I’ll take a couple months off the pom pom baskets—which were going insane! It was like, there were 200 stores. We were shipping constantly, it was this crazy scene. And people were starting to copy me but I was like, ok, it’s not out of control yet.” It was at the peak of the pom-poms that she was back in Brooklyn, preparing her family home to be sold and making plans for her elderly parents to move to Los Angeles.

Gran’s parents’ Park Slope house, which was a gem of property she describes as a “decrepit, beautiful mess” with fireplaces in every room, was eventually sold. She found a place in the Valley that could accommodate both of her parents, with room for carers and enough enclosure to stop her father from wandering off. But as things in life go, her mother passed away before the big move. Her father came to L.A., but the new landscape and the absence of his wife was too much. Gran lost both of her parents, and her childhood home. Then, with her business besieged by imitators around the world, Gran closed her company.
