Mixing Bowl Stabiliser

Designed for Access Inc.
by Nathan Phillips

TOM @ Uni




Access Inc. runs programs which help young adults with disabilities to build skills, confidence, and foster a sense of belonging in the community. A participant in their cooking classes would like to design something to stabilise a mixing bowl while stirring. This project is a continuation of the previous magnetic design which was developed in the 2022 Metro Makeathon.


RMIT design student Nathan Phillips developed a simple, fun egg-shaped silicon mat which works by suctioning to both the kitchen bench and mixing bowl. The mixing bowl aid is made from food-safe materials, is easy to clean and dishwasher safe. The discreet design is lightweight and was made in different sizes to be used with most commercially available mixing bowls.
