Even though I rarely ever cook I still seem to have a kitchen filled with various pots and pans that like to get in the way. Since they’re all made of metals, a material that is notoriously difficult to fold they tend to take up more space than I’d like.
The Scroll Pan designed by Sam Hextall was created for the specific purpose of providing a usable cooking surface that could also be reduced in size for easy storage. The pan rolls up on each handle not unlike a paper scroll would, and can then be stored in a hanging sleeve to keep it out of the way when not being used.
And even though the Scroll Pan is clearly just a concept at this time the designer does suggest that products like diphenyl silicone which is plasma treated and teflon coated could be used to make an actual working model.
