克里斯杨took the temperature on current kitchen innovation and decided the time was right to get back to the business of inventing devices to make home cooks smarter and food taste better.

The longtime chef and onetime co-founder and CEO of high-tech Seattle cooking startup ChefSteps, Young is moving beyond theSous视频热潮和the “Joule” device he created利用它。年轻的新公司被称为Combustion Inc.and the first product is a smart thermometer and timer for better gauging when food is perfectly cooked — no water needed, no meat submerged in a plastic bag.

“If you can really understand time and temperature and how to manage it, it’s like a cheat code for better cooking,” said Young, who previously collaborated with former Microsoft CTO Nathan Myhrvold, the Intellectual Ventures chief, on the epicModernist Cuisine cookbook。Young started ChefSteps in 2012 and it was由厨具巨头Breville Group获得in July 2019.

他计划休息2020年,和他的家人在国外出国,不做任何事情。然后covid-19击中。

“我很无聊,”年轻人说。“事实证明我喜欢发明东西,我仍然喜欢厨房。”

他声称他的新设备是一个更聪明的无线温度计。年轻人将八个数字传感器装配到一个时尚的探针中,旨在收集和计算来自烹饪牛排或鲑鱼的侧面内的多个点的数据。收集食物表面和其他点表面的关键温度,而不仅在探头脚尖休息的中心,允许梯度读数。该设备的算法技术甚至可以推断出一块肉的尺寸以及它的烹饪方式均匀。在下面的YouTube视频中观看年轻的谈话温度:

A cook looking to make a medium rare steak at around 135 degrees Fahrenheit can set that temperature on the accompanying timer. The probe transmits its readings to the timer via Bluetooth, including when the steak should come off a grill and how long it should rest before it’s really done.

“你告诉我们你想要到达的地方,所以我们可以解决这条路,”年轻人说。

There’s no need to fumble with a smartphone app or connect to the internet — although Combustion Inc. will have that tech, too.

“我们想让这一点是这样的事情,即使你有点不进入[物联网]厨具,这仍然是非常有用的,并且作为日常温度计,”年轻人说。“这么多IoT设备要求您下载应用程序,然后您必须配对它,然后您必须创建一个帐户。我们抛弃了所有这些。“

年轻人对厨房的技术看法已经从他的日子里发展了一下Sous视频,将水的技术加热到精确的温度,在延长的时间内均匀地浸入浸入食物。拥有一个应用程序和生态系统非常适合教人们对这种新方法,并且是厨房和焦耳的必要组成部分。亚博体育提现不出来

“你已经知道如何使用你的烤架。你已经知道如何使用煎锅。我不希望你要下载一个应用程序将温度计粘在一起,并弄清楚温度,“杨说。

The Combustion Inc. thermometer won’t be alone in the market of smart devices trying to offer a better digital read on food temps. But Young said thermometers from Yummly and Meater, for instance, are failing to gather all the necessary information for a perfect meal.

“We’re trying to make a thermometer that nobody’s made before. We’re trying to make it a third smaller than all the other thermometers on the market that honestly feel a bit like jamming a pencil into your food,” Young said. “It’s got to survive the grill, it’s got to survive the dishwasher, the deep fryer. It sounds simple, but making electronics happy at 300 degrees Celsius is not easy.”

亚博体育提现不出来大约有20个全球分布的人为Combustion Inc.提供了贡献,包括一些员工,自由职业者,人们年轻人在厨房和其他人致力于烹饪或硬件设计工作。

在今年夏天,年轻希望在人们手中的年轻希望通过燃烧网站销售,兴趣的买家现在可以报名参加通知。年轻人说,该设备“不会是最便宜的,但不会荒谬的昂贵。”“我希望这能成为人们觉得一个很好的价值。”

该计划是制造其他厨房设备,但年轻人没有分享哪些类型,除了说具有更具软件中心的电器的需求更大,所以它们可能与他的温度计连接。

用硬件制作它并不容易,并且在厨房里,厨师并不孤单地陷入困境。西雅图的Sansaire关闭了during development of its ownSous视频device in 2018.

But, to borrow a cooking term, Young said his career innovating in the kitchen “wasn’t quite done.” He felt there was an opportunity to do some new things and take steps toward building back his community, making practical products that solve real problems.

“在一定的意义上,这个产品是对我所有的朋友发短信给我的朋友的回应,”我该怎么做这件事?或者这个温度是多少?“年轻人说。“有一些指导你获得结果的东西,就像我可以获得20年的专业烹饪经验一样好 - 我觉得那种真棒。”
