AbstractElektrotermo AB manufactures equipment for institutional kitchens, such as boiling bain maries, stoves and work benches. The company is actively expanding its assortment of products, and through an initiative by Cedervall Arkitekter AB, they decided to develop a lift for canteens. The company had not had a similar product in their line before. The aim of this project was to produce a lift for canteens that lives up to the requirements of both the company and the users, and present production material for a fully functioning prototype.In order to achieve the goals, information was gathered from different sources and the problem was carefully analyzed. A user research was conducted and was the starting point of the structured concept generation. The final concept was further developed and through 3D-CAD models and drawings, a prototype was produced and tested by a cook.The result was a canteen lift made of stainless steel, which attaches to the back of boiling bain maries. A single drive connected to a hand control, elevates the lift. When the lift is in its top position, the canteen can easily be pulled onto a table trolley, without having to be lifted. A removable frame can easily be attached to the lift and facilitates tilting of the canteen in cases when the boiling canteen should be replaced before serving, and the food poured into another canteen. This prevents the users from tiring movements with high stress on wrists and shoulders.
