About

Picture your lunch. Do dry uninspiring sandwiches and disappointing microwaved leftovers sound familiar? For us here at Glasshouse it certainly did, so we set out to change it. We had an idea; what if you could use your microwave to grill, poach, fry and bake to perfection, delivering the home-cooked taste you love. That is what MICO gives you, lunches and snacks beautifully cooked in a fraction of the time.

MICO is the new method in your microwave. You’ve never cooked like this before; delicious toasties, grilled to perfection, poached and fried eggs with beautifully runny yolks, baked potatoes; crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, all from your humble microwave.

                                HOW IT WORKS

 

 This is possible thanks to new HeatWave Technology that harnesses the microwave power to deliver conventional cooking and turns microwaved food from disappointment to delight. With MICO, it’s not just your microwave's turntable that’s revolutionary.

    TOASTIE

 

A delicious toasted sandwich is a perfect meal or snack. Melted cheese, coupled with meat, tomato or whatever you fancy can turn the humble sandwich into an indulgent delight. To achieve this you've previously had to use a cumbersome toasted sandwich maker; not exactly something you can take to the office with you. MICO Toastie changes this, sandwiched between the cool-touch silicone outer are metal plates with added HeatWave Technology. This converts the microwaves into conventional grill cooking, meaning your microwave can now beautifully toast your sandwich.

POTATO

 

Baked potatoes crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside; the perfect meal. Until now, the only way to make a baked potato is to oven cook for hours, or cook in a microwave and have a soggy mess instead of the ideal crisp potato you crave. With MICO Potato, you can achieve an oven-cooked taste in just 18 minutes in your microwave. The HeatWave Technology is able to use microwaves to simultaneously cook inside to perfection and crisp up the outside.

EGGS

EGGS A sumptuous runny yoke of a poached or fried egg is something to savour, but if you've ever tried to make one in a microwave you'll know only too well the state they often come out in; hard and devoid of flavour. MICO Egg is the solution to beautifully microwaved eggs with runny yokes in a fraction of the time. The new HeatWave Technology is able to use microwaves to poach or fry eggs in minutes.

                 PRODUCT USABILITY

 

 Simply load your sandwich into the MICO Toastie and microwave for 6-8 minutes. What comes out is a perfectly grilled toasted sandwich that takes your lunch to the next level.

 

 Simply pop your potato in the MICO Potato and microwave for 7-8 minutes with the lid off and place the lid on for an extra 10-11 minutes. That’s all it takes to have a baked potato cooked beautifully to oven quality.

                    WHO WE ARE

Welcome to a new way of thinking! Glasshouse is the innovation centre of excellence backed by Morphy Richards, a household name in kitchen appliances. With a dedicated team of developers and engineers here at Glasshouse we look at the heart of what consumers truly need to make any kitchen task easier and quicker. We create solutions by thinking outside of the box looking at new technologies and new methods to give the consumer the best product solution possible. We have some amazing ideas here at Glasshouse, but only the really special ones make it. An idea can only be successful if you, the consumer, believe in it as much as we do. That’s why we want you to be part of the decision making, after all the best way to find out if our product solutions are what consumers want is to give you the chance to buy them, before we make hundreds of thousands of them. Our mission is to deliver never seen before product solutions to enhance kitchen tasks. Our team of experts work collaboratively at every stage from insight to concept to design to test to build and ultimately sell.

             WHAT IF I AM NOT HAPPY?

We really hope this is not the case as we can't wait to get these products into production and into your hands! If after you receive the products you have a problem with them then we will be happy to replace them like-for-like. Sadly though we will not be able to offer you a refund.

Risks and challenges

We learned many things with the campaign and we managed to overcome many challenges. Our team is experienced and eager to improve on every aspect possible including a quality control with our manufacturers.
For manufacturing components and assembly we are confident our partners are the best in the industry, we will oversee every step of Obsidian production and experience with distribution channels will make this project to run even smoother.
Regarding customer support, Mico is built on committed team members who are responsible and do not crack under pressure. This time we are even more ready to deliver the best possible experience.
