Gadget: All-in-one Cooker


Chris Albrecht wrote . . . . . . . . .

From the big IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, smart kitchen software company Drop announced the launch of the CookEasy+, a connected all-in-one cooker developed in partnership with Kenwood.

The CookEasy+ is a “multifunctional thermal cooker that allows users to chop, steam, stir, knead, mix, weigh, slow-cook and blend all in one appliance.” Drop’s software platform powers the CookEasy+, relaying step-by-step guided cooking instructions to the device, including temperature, time and speed.

The CookEasy+ also has an integrated scale that Drop says has “single-gram” precision with a max capacity of six kilograms, so you can weigh out the proper amount of ingredients in the device as you are preparing a dish.

CookEasy+ cook programs can be controlled via a tablet running the Drop software. There is also a range of preset programs available on the built-in 4.3-inch color touchscreen.

The CookEasy+ will be available in stores across France starting in September and will cost €999 ( about US$1,100).

Gadget: Cutting Board + Timer + Sanitizer + Scale + Knife Sharpener

Chop Box

Launched on KickStarter, the ChopBox is cutting board that also is a scale, a kitchen timer, a knife sharpener, a sanitizer, and oh-by-the-way, it’s also waterproof and made from organic bamboo.

But wait! There’s more! There’s actually a second cutting board that slides out for an additional cutting surface.

You can place your knife in between the two cutting surfaces and activate the small but powerful 254nm UVC light to sanitize up to 3 knives at once AND both cutting surfaces at the same time! Just one minute of UVC light exposure is guaranteed to kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria.

The ChopBox uses USB-C to charge, which is supposed to last for thirty days.

Gadget: Mayku FormBox – a Desktop Vacuum Former

The machine, which is about the same size and height of an open laptop, works by softening a thin sheet of food-safe material and forming it around any object up to 200 mm squared (7.8 inches squared).

Once the sheet sets it can be removed and used as a mold for everything from plastic to molten candies and chocolate.
