Buz­zFeed cre­ates smart cook­top

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Taste -

BUZ­ZFEED has cre­ated its first smart ap­pli­ance for fans of their wildly pop­u­lar Tasty page, whose snappy recipe videos have helped it be­come the largest so­cial food net­work in the world.

Dubbed The Tasty One Top, the in­duc­tion coun­ter­top cook­top can per­form ev­ery­thing from pan cook­ing, slow cook­ing to sous vide recipes.

But the ge­nius of the de­vice is its clever mar­ket­ing tie-in with the Tasty brand, with Blue­tooth ca­pa­bil­i­ties that sync up to the newly launched Tasty app.

Though the cook­top can be used in­de­pen­dently from the app, the de­vice can also con­nect di­rectly to the Tasty app and reg­u­late tem­per­a­tures and cook­ing time in sync with the recipe.

So when you're fol­low­ing a Tasty recipe, the One Top will au­to­mat­i­cally change its tem­per­a­ture and power set­tings, in ac­cor­dance with the in­struc­tions.

Like­wise, the One Top will tell users when to flip their pan­cake, or add their veg­gies, for the per­fect ex­e­cu­tion of a dish.

Af­ter in­putting de­tails like the meat's thick­ness and pre­ferred done­ness, the cook­top will de­liver a steak cooked per­fectly to the T. De­vel­op­ers claim the de­vice can bring liq­uid tem­per­a­ture to within 1°F (2°C) of pre­ci­sion and the sur­face tem­per­a­ture of a pan within 5°F (10°C).

The cook­top was de­vel­oped in part­ner­ship with GE Ap­pli­ance's First Build Team.

Buz­zFeed's Tasty page reaches one in four Face­book users world­wide, and cur­rently boasts more than 84.7 mil­lion fol­low­ers. Their videos at­tract 2.3 bil­lion views a month. The Tasty One Top is avail­able for pre-or­der in limited quan­ti­ties and re­tails for US$149 (RM638). Ship­ping starts in Novem­ber. – AFP Re­laxnews
