You'll flip for this smart frying panThe Pantelligent is a smart frying pan that uses a Bluetooth-connected app to guide you through recipes. This $199 pan (converting roughly to £140 in the UK and AU$285 in Australia) regularly produces meals that border on perfection.
[MUSIC] The Pantelligent started out as just another Kickstarter project. But it quickly got popular, got funding. And now it's ready for you to order. Now, I was a little skeptical of the Pantelligent. I mean, it's a smart frying pan that's supposed to teach me how to cook better. That's a pretty lofty claim. But it's actually a really cool invention. Beyond the surface, the Pantelligent looks like any other pan you might have in your home. It's about 12 inches across, with two inch high sides. And it's covered with a non-stick coating and it's made of aluminum. But the real magic is right here. The handle contains a Bluetooth connection that syncs up with an app that works on either iOS or Android devices. So the Pantelligent uses the app to tell you what the temperature is of the food that you're cooking. And then it gives you directions step by step on how to cook certain In dishes, like salmon or steak or grilled cheese sandwiches. And what's really cool about the ap is that it will probably get you to adjust the temperature of your pan if it's getting a little too hot or a little too cool. This way you can keep your pan at a pretty even temperature which is great for cooking a verity of food. Now I love to cook and I found that Pantelligent make cooking very precise and even fun. Now it did get to be a little annoying. When the app kept telling me to lower the temperature or raise the temperature over and over again. The heat is still too high. But the end result was always worth all that nagging, and I imagine that the intelligence would be great for a novice cook, to walk them through some very basic recipes and eventually teach them. How to be a better cook. So the Pantelligent is $199. Pretty steep for a frying pan. But this isn't just any frying pan. It's a smart frying pan that will teach you how to cook better. [SOUND]
