This is a small "eco-system" inside the kitchen.

Water from the bowl is removed by a pump and passed through several natural filters (like in an aquaponic system).

Once in a while, the water is boiled and then cooled before being returned to the bowl.

You can put dirty dishes with soap in the bowl and wash the dishes by shaking them vigorously. After a while, the water is removed and filtered, returned to the bowl sparkling clean with no soap.

For arid places where water is sparse but energy is abundant.
