Cooka: The Most Stylish Hot Plate You'll Ever See?

Hot Plates are typically a dime a dozen &mdash they all look alike and typically work the same way. The materials are standard and yes, they get the job done, but for folks that are looking for plates that are more aesthetically pleasing, we think we found your match.

The Cooka; designed by Maurizio Maiorana is a modern, updated version of the Hot Plate. Besides the cheery yellow color and sleek shape; it also uses pretty standard materials in a unique way.

The Cooka uses silver hot plates to conduct heat to cook your food. Silver is an amazing heat (and cold) conductor. The outer shell is made from Liquid Silicon Rubber, and can withstand temperatures up to 536 degrees Fahrenheit.

The control buttons are located on the front of the stove top, and the power source located on the side. You simply plug in the Cooka to an electric outlet and let the cooking begin. Another unique feature &mdash it's foldable. Due to the use of Liquid Silicon Rubber, the designer ensures the ability to fold the hot plate for easy storage. We're not sure how durable the Cooka is, or what the shelf life is due to the folding ability.

It seems as though the Cooka is just a concept right now, but we're hoping it becomes available in stores soon.
