Embracing the slow food movement, Industrial Designer Xavier Lopez designed the Dome Oven to encourage people to take a moment and enjoy the simple pleasures of a slowly prepared meal. “We are experts in precooked meals made in 5-15 minutes,” he said to design blog Knstrct. “The idea is to recover the idea of DOME cooking fire and slowly, as our ancestors did, generating a meeting around food because you have to wait to be done.”
Similar to a Tajine, the oven is handmade using refractory ceramic and is sculpted for optimal heat distribution. It has a dark black glaze on the inside so food appears to pop when presented. The Dome is lightweight and can be used either in the kitchen or out camping.
