Today Apple news, A Robotic Chef Could Be in Your Near Future.
If you hate to cook, but don’t want to keep throwing money at your local restaurants, this robotic chef might be the answer to your problem. Launched to help a friend who had found himself in a wheelchair and struggling to keep up with everyday tasks, a startup is trying to make cooking healthy and delicious meals as easy as putting in a tray of ingredients and your favorite kitchen utensils.
From tragedy to inspiration
NYU Business School graduate Michael Lemberg jumped to his friend’s rescue when the young man suffered an accident that left him confined to a wheelchair. It was the same for several others, and they succeeded for several years in sustaining the gentleman. Soon, however, they recognized that they had to help her maintain a sense of independence, especially when it came to meals.
While they could have completely remodeled their kitchen to make it more wheelchair accessible, the group of siblings also saw a missed opportunity for others. Realizing that not everyone likes the tedious process of preparing and cooking a great meal, they asked how the task could be accomplished using a robot chef.
From these thoughts, they imagined iWondercook, a robotic chef in a box that appeared at CES 2021.
Chef Robitc: a better way to cook
The operation of iWondercook is simple. You buy the meal kit, which the company packages so that it can stay fresh in your fridge for up to ten days. Meal Kits are made from only the freshest ingredients, never pre-cooked, frozen or loaded with artificial preservatives.
When you place the meal kit in iWondercook, the device scans it and makes sure it has not expired. All you need to do is add water, cooking oil, and spices as directed. Your food processor does the rest, using steam, induction and convection heating. No microwave meals here, folks.
In less than 15 minutes your meal is ready to eat, the iWondercook also includes a timer function, so you can charge it and it will automatically start cooking just in time for dinner to be ready when you get home .
When it’s time to clean up, simply place the pot and your dishes in the dishwasher.
Smart cooking even without a kitchen
No kitchen? No problem. The iWondercook robotic chef only needs a power outlet and a Wi-Fi connection, and it’s only 14 inches wide by 15 inches deep. The gadget is only 17 inches tall, so it should easily fit on a rest room counter under cabinets.
Of your iPhone, you can order your meal kits for up to six pounds of food, enough to feed up to seven people. A professional mannequin is also on the way and can cook up to 10 pounds of food at a time.
Finished meals, according to Lemberg, taste no different from home-cooked meals or dishes served in high-end restaurants.
A real vision of the future of cooking
The bad news is that iWondercook is not yet in production. However, Lemberg was busy during the all-digital CES 2021, showing off the latest prototype and trying to get investors interested in shaking things up.
The team needs to raise as little as $ 1.5 million to make iWondercook a reality for consumers. The team expects the prices to be on par with most large kitchen appliances and may even have the option for people to get their robotic chef for free if they agree to purchase a certain number of meal kits each month. .
Lemberg compares the iWondercook to the reality of most printer manufacturers. When HP or Epson sells you a printer, they don’t really make a lot of money from that purchase. The real profit comes from ink or toner cartridges. With iWondercook, the profit will come from meal kits, which should always cost less than a similar meal in a restaurant, and what you would pay for groceries.
Not only that, you don’t have to go to the grocery store. Everything is delivered right to your door. The iWondercook is perhaps the coolest thing to show up at CES this year, and I can’t wait to see one sitting on my counter.
