Scrub & Scrape
Cleaning dishes, pots and pans in the sink is messy and sometimes a difficult task. If the pot or pan has caked-on or baked-on food, it usually requires the use of a pan scraper to get the pots/pans clean. Design one or two specialized functional tool that cleans through the toughest gunk.
focus group & testing
Concept direction explored:
- Long dish brush with soap dispensing feature
- Double handle
- Flexible head
- Flat back to store it upright
Rounds of prototypes were mocked up by blue and urethane foam to refine a comfortable grip for an average adult hand. Contour angle of body of dish brush is in line with motion of how the brush will use and parallel to wrist and forearm.
•Good for getting into cups and circling around the parameter
•Hugs the corners of pots to clean edges
•Not good for plate and flat surface cleaning action-only a row or two makes contact.
•Does not reach deep & steep areas as well
•Good surface coverage—abundant bristles!
•Food getting in stuck between bristle(very tight spacing)
•Soap dispensing-feature accommodates well with lots of bristle to create more foam ?
CAD & Construction
Soft membrane (TPE) allows Pan Scraper's mid section to flex, preventing user's knuckle to stay clear from the pan and away from dirty dishes.
