Lifting the lid from a boiling pot can be a little like running away from a grenade… You tend to fling it somewhere quickly and duck out of the way so you don’t scorch yourself or damage your bench top.
Which is why Dreamfarm were so compelled to come up with a safer way for you to cook – and just like their other products, this one seems to have a personality all of its own.
Say hello to Onpot. He’s a chipper, bright blue little guy that likes to hang out on your saucepan’s lid, suction feet placed firmly on top. Then, when you need to remove the lid to check on your cooking, Onpot lets you rest it on the edge of the saucepan – and not only that, it will be at an angle that lets condensation and food fall back in to the pot. When you need to put the lid back on, Onpot will always be there to help.

With product names like Smood and Membo, it's clear that Dreamfarm is unlike other kitchen supply companies. Founded in Canberra, Australia in 2003 by then-22-year-old Alexander Gransbury, Dreamfarm is dedicated to creating products that respond to as-yet-unsolved problems. The result is a collection of unique, stunningly clever items, ranging from the Oni – a multi-purpose knife that includes a razor-sharp chef's blade, a spreader and a plastic wrap cutter – to the Scizza – a scissor-like pizza-cutter that combines two ultra-sharp blades with a bottom-blade spatula. The brand’s Clongs, click-lock tongs that have bent stainless steel arms in order to keep countertops clean, won a prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2010.
