Modernized Kitchen Stove Would Be a Space-Saving Appliance

Reader designs a retractable kitchen stove.

| January/February 2012

I would love to invent a new kind of kitchen stove.

It would be a very modernized stove that would recede into the wall when it wasn’t being used, and when it was needed, you would simply pull it out.

Space-saving appliances

With my newly created stove, it would free up a lot of space in the kitchen, which would leave plenty of room for my table and chairs. This way, I could serve meals, snacks, or simply coffee or another beverage to my friends and family in a roomy, comfortable, eat in kitchen.

Do you think such a thing as a “smart kitchen stove” might be in my future?

This already exists. My friend has had one in her kitchen for over 30 years. It slides out like a drawer.
