We take a look at the Paragon Induction Cooktop, a countertop appliance that lets you turn any pot into a sous-vide machine.
[MUSIC] We finally got our hands on the Paragon Induction Cooktop. And this is a product from the FirstBuild microfactory at GE Appliances, here in Louisville, Kentucky. And this is a really interesting product that uses induction Technology which is when electromagnetic fields create heat for a really efficient way to cook. Now the induction cook top works with a bluetooth temperature probe to communicate to one another to set very precise cooking temperatures. Ideally this product is used for [UNKNOWN] cooking which is a method of cooking that involves vacuum sealing food and a water bath. Because you can use the temperature probe in liquids other than water, you can do things like deep fry or even slow cook with this device. Or you don't even have to use the temperature probe at all, and you can use the [UNKNOWN] as just a regular, old cook top. There's a little button to the side where you turn on the Bluetooth probe, and then, use magnets to stick it to the side of whatever pot or pan you're using. Now it's synced with the actual cook top so you can choose if you want it to rapidly come to temperature or gently come to temperature which means it will heat up but just a little bit slower. You know, so far in my testing of the paragon I've had some really good salmon and some so so steak, but I still have a lot more testing to do. So you can check out a full review here But we wanted to give you a peek into this product, because we've known about it for more than a year and it's finally here. [MUSIC]
