Breakfast is about to get simpler and a lot more stylish, thanks to Jan des Bouvrie and Princess  who have collaborated to create the Compact4All breakfast cubes. Consisting of four different appliances, the Compact4All includes a toaster, juicer, coffee maker and kettle, which stack together in just under 16 square inches. Each appliance can stand on its own, but when combined the system uses just one outlet and stacks together for easy storage! Each cube in the Compact4All system is just less than 8 inches square. The toaster can make 2 slices at a time, the coffee maker makes 2 cups and the kettle can hold just under 17 ounces. The juicer includes two different heads for varying sizes of fruit . The system comes in stylish white and can be stacked square or laid out in a row. This is the fourth collaboration between Princess and Jan des Bouvrie, including the Simple White Table Chef and the Simple White Sandwich Maker. Each piece can be purchased separately. + Princess + Jan des Bouvrie Via MocoLoco

Plug-In Solar Appliance Brings Cheap Solar Power to Homes

Comments Off on Plug-In Solar Appliance Brings Cheap Solar Power to Homes

Solar power company Clarian Technologies has developed a new concept in residential solar power:  the solar appliance.  Just like a refrigerator or microwave, a homeowner can buy the Sunfish solar power system, plug it into any outdoor outlet and start feeding solar power into their home. Whereas most solar power systems require a contractor to install the module and an electrician to connect it to the electric panel through an inverter (to convert the DC power generated to AC power), Clarian says a handy homeowner can install the Sunfish themselves in about an hour. The other major bonus of such a plug-and-play-type system, is the cost.  Let’s face it, that’s the main draw.  The base model Sunfish will cost $799 with the largest running about $4,000, where a typical roof-mounted system costs a minimum of $10,000 and goes steeply up from there.
