The Smart Kitchen Summit is a yearly gathering that focuses on advancements in food technology. It's also an opportunity for startups and entrepreneurs to show off new products, like the Brava Oven. This Wi-Fi- and Bluetooth-enabled countertop cooker uses a mix of visible and nonvisible light to cook dishes.
There are a total of six lamps in the oven that use what Brava calls Pure Light Cooking. The lamps use infrared energy to transfer heat to the food you're cooking rather than heating the air inside the oven cavity.
The layout of the lamps allows for multizone cooking. That means you can place three different ingredients that require different cooking temperatures inside the oven, and you can set a separate temperature for each section of the oven.
Garbi is a $99 two-bin smart garbage can. It takes a picture of what you're throwing away, identifies it and creates a shopping list based on what it sees. You will be able to connect the Garbi to services like Amazon so it automatically reorders what you've just thrown away.
The Silo system is made up of a container and a vacuum sealer that sucks the air out of the containers from the bottom. The base, which contains the vacuum sealer, includes Amazon Alexa, the voice-activated digital assistant.
Silo debuted on Kickstarter this week. In four days, the project has received more than $220,000 in funding, surpassing its $80,000 goal. Silo's creators have listed the Silo system as a reward for backers who pledge $165 or more.
This peel-and-stick patch goes on the inside of food containers to keep whatever is on the inside hot and crisp by absorbing condensation. The company is still shopping this product to potential vendors.
