Magnetic Cooking Board

Access Inc.

Metro Makeathon




Access Inc. runs programs which help young adults with disabilities to develop skills, confidence and a sense of belonging in the community. A participant in their cooking classes would like a way to stabilise a mixing bowl while they are stirring. Often, a second person needs to hold onto the bowl because a rubber mat is not enough to keep it in place. Access Inc. wants a solution which will allow students in their classes to cook independently and comfortably.


Team Access Inc. designed a magnetic cooking board to keep the bowl stationary when mixing ingredients. This means someone with limited mobility can stir one-handed without the aid of another person. This simple, inconspicuous solution enables more independence while preparing food, which is an activity many of us engage in every day.
