Generally a phone is used in the kitchen to chat to friends, look up a recipe or take photos of your latest culinary creation. Pretty much any smartphone can handle those tasks, but Oukitel’s models can handle a little more and get their hands dirty in the kitchen.
First up with have the Oukitel U7, a $69.99 smartphone, doing its own impression of a chopping board. The idea of the video is to prove that the screen’s 5.5 inch surface is resistant to even sharp knives. Good to know if you ever find yourself without a place to slice carrots.

The second video is a little more interesting and shows 10 x Oukitel K10000 phones hooked up to an electric hot plate producing enough power to boil water and cook noodles. It’s not really surprising that 10 phones, each with a 10,000mAh battery installed is able to produce the power needed to boil water, but it’s none the less impressive to see.
Oukitel are no strangers to going that extra mile when promoting their latest phones. In a past video the company fried a battery pack with a flamethrower to prove that it wouldn’t explode at high temperatures.
Do videos like this increase the possibility of you buying a smartphone or are these ‘hype’ videos getting a little old now?
