Continuously Growing Microgreens At Home

Continuously Growing Microgreens At Home

The perfect present for a food-loving tech nerd should be an innovation that can be labeled as smart, urban and sustainable. Well, the Mizzle microgreen cultivator ticks all the boxes.

The concept, which is not for sale yet, is a product of designers Gökhan Cetinkaya & Deniz Ibanoğlu and a winner of the iF Design Talent Award. The duo designed a smart aeroponic kitchen for consumers to grow microgreens at home.

The Mizzle is divided into three compartments: the first one is for germination in a dark, closed space. The seeds are placed in a tray and once ready they can be pushed to the next compartment, where the microgreens can grow under sunlight or LED light. Once the third compartment has been fully harvested, a new growing pad with seeds can be placed in the tray and can be slid into the germination cell. This way the system allows the consumer to produce microgreens continuously.

What is even more convenient is that the user can install a specially designed app to follow the growing cycles and to get notified when they have to add water.
