Cooking at home is great way to save money and eat healthy. It’s also a great way to pile even more work into an already busy life. And while it won’t quite do all the work for you, the Cinder Sensing Cooker should help you save some time.
Sporting a design similar to contact grills, it uses non-stick cooking plates that cover the food both top and bottom, applying heat to both sides at the same time. Unlike them, it comes with smart sensors that allow it to automatically adjust temperature in a precise manner, ensuring all food items are cooked evenly from edge to edge.
The Cinder Sensing Cooker can, of course, be used like a regular contact grill, so you can simply put food in there, turn the knob, and shut it down when the food is done to your liking. To get the most out of it, though, it’s best to pair the cooker with accompanying app, where you can choose the kind of food items you’re cooking from its built-in food database. Once you’ve made your choices, simply put the food in the chamber (it can hold up to two large steaks or three chicken breasts at a time) and leave it to work unattended.
When cooking, Cinder will automatically detect the thickness of the food items you have between the plates, adjusting times and temperature to compensate for the size and doneness levels, as necessary. You’ll receive a smartphone notification as soon as cooking is done, which you can choose to ignore if you’re not yet hungry (the appliance will automatically keep the food warm for up to two hours).
Slated for release next year, the Cinder Sensing Cooker is currently collecting preorders, priced at $499.
