Qu is a set of kitchen utensils designed according to the user experience of elder home cooks. Task-related problems are identified through interviews with experienced home cooks. Prototypes are made and modified many times after tryouts and consultation with the home cooks. By doing so, users can also engage in the design process. The kitchenware is designed to reduce unnecessary or repetitive bending and stretching movements that can cause chronic health problems, especially for elder home cooks. Its design provides an user-friendly angle to spare efforts to lift the pan up. With Qu Universal Kitchenware, home cooks can enjoy a more pleasant cooking experience.
