I think Coffee Pot is an apt title for this design. I wanted to create something that was built like a brick and would transport the user back in time to a simpler more elemental era. Basically you have a big pot and you just chuck everything in and make your meal (or potion!) The way that the water tank, air filter and roasting unit poke above the pot rim help give the impression of ingredients bobbing about in a stew. I also wanted to make it easy enough for myself to use, so everything is colour coded and shaped to suggest the item required for that particular unit; and this links back to the elemental forces.
