This smart cooker is app-controlled, making it easier than ever to try new dishes and multitask while getting dinner ready. The device also has a full-color LCD display, touch controls, a built-in scale and more. In fact, there are more than 300 cooking presets you can access right on the smart cooker, and even more when you use the Chef iQ app.

The app has a ton of guided cooking recipes and even step-by-step video instructions to follow. You can also send precise cooking parameters to your smart cooker with the push of a button. And if you have a favorite recipe you like to cook often, you can customize and save those cooking presets for one-touch cooking.

The smart cooker has four integrated smart sensors that allow you to use your cooker as a kitchen scale. It will display the precise weight of your ingredients in real time. That means you won't have to use a measuring cup, which simplifies both prep and cleanup.

Some people worry about the safety of pressure cookers, but the Chef iQ has an auto pressure relief system built in so that steam can escape on its own when it is done cooking. There are also three release methods: quick, pulse and natural.

Your pressure cooker comes with a steam rack, a steam basket and more for added convenience. Plus, it will continue to receive wireless firmware updates, which means over time your cooker will continue to gain additional features and improve its cooking algorithms.
