Buzzfeed, the world renown media company known for its celebrity news, wants to turn you into an incredible chef with its “precision smart cooktop.” The Tasty One Top is part of a growing line of smart kitchen gadgets (Proper Tasty, Bien Tasty, and Tasty Jr.) that have revolutionized kitchens across America. Equipped with Bluetooth technology, the Tasty One countertop burner is perfect for anyone wanting an easy-to-follow time-saving solution for dinner.
Intelligent Design Features
The real magic of Buzzfeed’s Tasty One cooktop is housed in iOS compatible Tasty App (Android version en route). With access to over 1,700 recipes and videos, you can learn to boil, sear, and sous vide some of the creative dishes all from the comforts of your home. Buzzfeed’s powerful induction cooktop can create signature dishes ranging from honey garlic chicken to pineapple grilled skewers to churro ice scream. Users just simply pick the desired recipe, allow the app to adjust the settings of their Tasty One Top, and follow the instructions. You’ll know the exact moment to sauté the onions/garlic and sear your filet.
If cooking autonomously is your game, Tasty One has the option of operating the induction cooker without settings. It’s just a matter of activating the onboard controls and working your creative magic in the kitchen. You go from paint-by-numbers cooking to the freedom of a seasoned Sous Chef by simply disconnecting from the app’s instructions. Totally up to you.
Smart Cooking Technology
Armed with a temperature probe – the Tasty One precision cooker takes the guesswork out of your food’s internal temperature. Whether it’s cooking the perfect medium rare filet or making sure the burgers are well done, the Tasty One gives you insight every step of the preparation process. This is especially important if you decide to take the sous vide cooking challenge – a method that requires cooking vacuum-sealed food in a temperature-controlled water bath.
So what makes the Tasty One Top a must-have kitchen appliance? First off, the Tasty One cooker has an incredibly friendly price tag ($149) compared to competitors like the Paragon Induction Cooktop ($300) and the Hestan Cue ($650). Secondly, with millions of followers on Facebook and millions more downloading Tasty videos, there’s an element of brand recognition other cooktops just don’t have. Buzzfeed created Tasty two years ago and quickly became one of the leading influencers in easy-to-cook recipes. Buyers also have the reassurance of a kitchen gadget built from GE Appliances’ FirstBuild micro-factory in China. With the design work coming from Buzzfeed Product Labs, GE Appliances has the responsibility of engineering the cooker’s signature top.
“What we were really struggling with or thinking about is, how we can make cooking more reliable, take the guesswork out,” Ben Kaufmann, head of Buzzfeed’s Product Lab, told Wired in a recent interview. “How do we make it more comfortable… for people to express themselves and be them.”
The Tasty One Community
Buzzfeed hit the nail on the head when it designed its oven to be operable under the guidance of an intuitive iOS Tasty app. Users have a library of recipes to choose from whether it’s “16 One-Pot Dinners That Are Actually Healthy,” “17 Egg-Cooking Hacks That Are Borderline Genius,” or “28 Mediterranean Recipes You Should Make ASAP.” Equipped with a host of built-in sensors that speak to the app’s pre-programmed cooking settings, Tasty One owners can rest assured that the end product will produce consistent chef-like results from their mini-stove.
