What Makes It Smart?
SmartyPans is a smart cooking pan that monitors weight of ingredients, temperature and humidity and transfers it to a smartphone app in real time. The app uses this information to give you tailored step-by-step cooking instructions based on your cooking environment.
The motivation behind SmartyPans was to reduce guesswork from cooking and make recipe apps more intuitive. We did this by putting 3 sensors on the pan that act as user input for the recipe apps, helping them make smarter decisions!
How Does It Work?
You start by selecting a recipe (yes, the app comes with 1000s of recipes!). Once, you do, SmartyPans will break it into instructions and display only one instruction at a time.
You can start adding your ingredients directly in the pan. As you do, a progressbar on the app will tell you if the ingredients added are enough and notify you, when you hit the mark. During this time, the app continuously monitors the heat and adjusts the cooking time, based on your cooking env!
Don’t need cooking instructions? SmartyPans operates in a metric mode as well! In this mode, the app will only display temperature, weight and humidity readings in real time. You’re in charge the whole time and you can switch between modes with just a swipe!
