Who has ever overcooked an egg, undercooked a chicken breast or totally massacred a seemingly benign grilled cheese sandwich?
Pantelligent is an app-enhanced pan that alerts you when your food is perfectly cooked.
The pan has a central temperature gauge and a Bluetooth-equipped handle that, when it touches your phone, connects to the app. The activated app then shares helpful hints, for example, when the pan is hot enough to add oil or when your steak reaches a medium rare temperature.
The app itself comes loaded with recipes, but it’s easy to make the pan work with your own creations. For example, you don’t need to make pancakes from scratch; even using a mix, the pan takes the guesswork out of wondering when you need to flip them.
This has the potential to take a lot of frustration out of cooking. Now, assuming you enter the proper information in the app, your phone tells you how to cook your food without a meat thermometer, a taste test or even a cookbook.
All you need to do is stock your fridge with something more than diet soda and gummy worms.
