iGrill App for People Using Bluetooth in the Kitchen
Get an iGrill
There was a time when cooking a new recipe meant pulling out the old Betty Crocker cookbook and concocting a meal in what was usually a time consuming fashion. Unless you had a real knack for cooking you need a number of additional gadgets to make sure that they meal turned out right – timers and thermometers and all kinds of other bells and whistles. These days, all that you really need to be a decent amateur cook is an iPhone and the many different cooking apps that come with it. And as time goes on you need fewer and fewer apps because single apps are becoming highly multi-purpose.
A terrific example of this is the iGrill. Now, in all fairness, this is a new gadget and doesn’t work as an app on the phone alone. But it does so much within the app and using the one small gadget that it can take the place of multiple items in your kitchen. The iGrill itself is a high-quality food thermometer designed to help you make sure that you are cooking everything to the exact right temperature. It’s a wireless thermometer with a touch interface that works within in a range of twenty or more feet and can track temperatures as hot as four hundred degrees Fahrenheit.
This wireless thermometer really allows you to multi-task. You can be busy in the kitchen doing other things and easily check on the temperature of the food that you’re cooking. With it’s 200+ foot range you can check on the food from almost anywhere else in your house or yard. More importantly, it’s designed to alert you when your food reaches a certain temperature. That means that instead of constantly checking on the temperature of your food, you can simply set the temperature that it’s supposed to be and hear a beep when the food has reached that level of heat. This really allows you to get your meals ready to go and then forget about them as they cook without worrying about burning and ruining them.
The thermometer works via Bluetooth. It will actually work alone as a device without the corresponding iPhone app but of course it’s the app that adds all of the extra features that make the device so great. Those extra features include:
o Multi-probe support. What this means is that you can purchase two iGrill thermometers and use them simultaneously by linking them together through the app. If you cook multi-dish meals that need to be monitored in terms of your temperature then this is a nice additional feature.
o Kitchen timer. Get rid of whatever old timer you’ve been using in the kitchen and keep track of it all using the app. An additional feature is that it shows how much cooking time is remaining so that you can see when it’s time to start performing different kitchen tasks.
o Recipes. That old Better Crocker cookbook can be tossed aside because this app brings you recipes right on your iPhone. That’s the modern way of doing things.
The iGrill app is available not just for the iPhone but also for the iPad and iPod Touch. It debuts early in 2011.
