Newsmax Tech Tips: 7 Devices That Can Make You a Better Cook

By    |   Tuesday, 17 Mar 2015 08:47 AM

Our kitchens are getting an upgrade thanks to the Internet of Things. Home cooks can now operate all their kitchen appliances through their smart phones and enjoy more automated, simpler processes.

Find out exactly when your steak is done or have coffee brewed at 9 a.m. on the dot with a few taps and swipes. Here are seven of the most innovative smart kitchen gadgets to help make you a better cook:

1.
Belkin Chef Stand and Stylus: Avoid putting your messy fingers all over your tablet screen with this stylus, which is compatible with any tablet. The non-slip stand also makes viewing recipes much easier.

2. iGrill Thermometer: Whether you’re entertaining guests at the house or have other dishes to prepare, this Bluetooth-enabled thermometer tracks the meat’s internal temperature and notifies you on your smart phone when to remove it from the heat. Select which meat you’re cooking and how you’d like it cooked (from rare to well done) and an alarm will go off when it’s done. You can track its temperature in real-time through the app too.

3. The Orange Chef Co. Prep Pad: Put any food on this smart kitchen scale to find out its nutritional value. Automatically, graphs of the food’s proteins, carbs, fats, and other nutrients will appear on your smart device. From there you can add or remove ingredients to stay on track with your health goals.

4. Hapifork: Eating too quickly leads to poor digestion and weight gain. This electronic fork alerts you with vibrations when you’re eating too fast and tracks how much you’re eating so you don’t have to manually record your meals. It also measures how long it took you to eat, the number of fork servings, and intervals in between servings.

5. Pantelligent: This smart frying pan has a temperature sensor at the center that allows you to track heat in real-time. Find out whether your pan is too hot before you start to cook and when to flip it. Select what you’re cooking and the pan will notify you when it has reached its ideal temperature.

6. LG Smart Thinq Refrigerator and Oven: With LG’s Smart Thinq Refrigerator, you can set your refrigerator’s temperature and find out what’s inside from your smart phone. It will notify you of expiration dates and recommend shopping lists based on what’s running low.

The LG Smart Oven allows you to turn on the oven, control the temperature, and even start a self-clean cycle from anywhere with just a few taps of your smart phone. You can also find recipes using items found inside the fridge and then send that recipe to the smart range to set the temperature and cooking time.

For both appliances, Smart Grid technology detects when power consumption is at its lowest so each device operates at a lower energy rate. In the event that there’s a problem with either appliance, the technology will transmit data to the LG Call Center for easy diagnosis and solutions.

7. Smarter Coffee Machine: Just getting out of bed and in dire need of coffee? Open the Smarter app to start pre-boiling the kettle to get your first cup of joe or hot water for tea going. The WiFi-enabled kettle allows you to set the coffee or water temperature and will notify you when it’s ready. You can also pre-set the coffee machine so your beverage is ready at a specific time and customize the strength of the brew through the app.
