Much to the chagrin of the many who aren’t well-versed with the kitchen, cooking with consistently good results requires years of professional cooking experience. Unfortunately, most people don’t have that and end up serving a lot of under- and overcooked food. To help address this issue and to cut down on the time spent in the kitchen overall, the Cuciniale cooking system was born.
The Cuciniale intelligent cooking system consists of a multi-sensor wireless probe, an induction cooktop and a companion mobile app. Together, it guides users through the process of making any meal. While the induction cooktop is fairly straightforward, the key to the cooking system is the wireless probe which serves as its brain. Users simply select the food and desired preparation style from the app and stick the probe into the food itself. From here, the app will not only calculate the size and density of the food to accurately control the cooktop’s heat but also alert users when to participate themselves.
And since the app is augmented with the intelligence gathered from the techniques of professional chefs worldwide, cooking a perfect meal is no longer a fluke but a daily occurrence. The Cuciniale can be had for as little $162 depending on how early backers support the campaign. It is expected to ship in March at the earliest should its Kickstarter campaign raise a ~$109,000 by November 9th, 2016.
The Cuciniale is a nice alternative to more fully-featured smart cooking solutions like the OneCook and June that are much bigger and more involved. While the Cuciniale may not come with a food home delivery service or the capacity to bake, it does offer a fairly simple way to approach cooking up restaurant-quality staples, all without too much involvement.
