To ease household chores, Navshri wanted to make a device that can do multiple tasks. For this, she drew the model of a device on paper and applied different scientific principles to help her mother in various household tasks. She took the help of her science teacher for designing a real-time prototype.


Navshri and her teacher took the advice of carpenters and altered the device as per their suggestions. The device, Multi-Use Kitchen Machine, is operated by hands. One can do eight different tasks using the device like cutting vegetables, rolling rotis, extracting juice, crushing spice etc.

Navshri took the help of a carpenter for making the device which is made with teak wood, steel plates etc. She spent around ₹3,000 to design the device. The device has various detachable parts to serve various purposes. One can attach as per the required work. Navshri’s mother used the device and was satisfied with its efficiency.

Navshri won the INSPIRE award from National Innovation Foundation (NIF). Her design has been sent for patenting.
