Worried your coffeemaker might find its way beneath a pickup truck? Or get blasted by a water hose? Well, now there’s the Oxx Coffeeboxx. Complete with an IP55 rating (which means it’s protected from dust and water), the coffeemaker has an internal framework that can withstand a 1/4-ton load and a double-sealed water tank to prevent leaks. The machine brews single-serve coffee pods and is styled to fit in among power tools. Oxx founder and former Whirlpool designer Jim Doan says, “We had to build this from the ground up. It’s not like any other appliance.” Truer words could not be spoken.
