Calphalon redesigned their family of appliances in 2018 with a unified aesthetic and improved performance across the range. As part of the team working on these products, my primary contribution was to the Calphalon Quartz Heat Countertop Oven. I sketched, 3D modeled, and rendered multiple versions of this oven, providing direction on the interface layout, handle design, edge treatment, and rack configuration.

The Calphalon Quartz Heat Countertop Oven uses a quartz heating element to provide a more consistent heat. Food is finished faster and corners are crispier.
The oven preheats in seconds, and features presets for different cooking scenarios, such as toasting, roasting, broiling and dehydration.
The spacious interior easily holds a 12" pizza or a whole chicken, and is perfect for baking pies and brownies.
Initial concepts for the oven explored a variety of button layouts and handle designs. The iconic elements and trim details were developed in concert with the rest of the family to ensure a unified look for the brand.
