Match Cooking Prep System

This is a Match Cooking Prep System. It was designed by Amanda Savitzky.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Amanda Savitzky as part of Access+Ability.

Its medium is plastic, wood.

Savitzky designed this system to help her adult brother who is on the autism spectrum learn to cook for himself. To provide visual structure and routine, the measuring cups have easy-to-grip handles and come in four colors and shapes, each with a corresponding storage place in a wooden board. An iPad translates recipes into an interactive step-by-step slideshow, and ingredients are coordinated with the measuring cups.
