The Project :

Not only a crepe maker!

The Mandine MRG080-LINK multi-grill is a clever little device designed to fit everyone’s tables, even the smallest! It offers 4 ways of convivial food cooking : Mini-crepes, crepes, plancha and grill.
In contrast with the classic 6 persons devices, this product offers a 3 persons cooking experience and can be linked to up to 2 more devices to reach a 9-persons cooking party.
This innovative feature is an answer to new consumer’s behaviors in the kitchen where users are less attracted by bulky/all-in-1 products; they prefer compactness, modularity and flexibility.
The design has been work around curvatures and smoothness in order to get this edge-less body and enhance the fun and conviviality feeling.

Mandine is a Carrefour private label for small and medium kitchen appliances.
Product available here & in Carrefour stores in France and Belgium.

I worked on this project while holding an Lead Industrial Designer position at Carrefour Global Sourcing in Hong-Kong.

Behind the scenes

This product has been designed to ease the user when using this device with friends and family but also to comply with strong Safety regulation due to the heat proximity.

The two handles have been designed to stay as far as possible from the heat source while minimizing the bulkiness of the Raclette. Thinking about safety issues in the first stage of our design process allowed us to reduce the risks of quality tests being rejected during the final phase of development and thus make sure we were going to stick to the planning. On top of the safety feature, the handles carry a strong visual identity that makes the device easy to recognize in stores.   

Regarding space optimization, the DUO-link raclette comes with cooking accessories that are easy to store underneath the appliance.
