The UK company, established in 2014 has developed a new device to test the level to which a meat is cooked, for instance a beef steak, providing an instant and accurate digital reading.
The product accurately tests the level to which a meat is cooked to, either during or after the cooking process, providing an instant and clear digital reading within three seconds. Using the device is simple and user friendly and does not negatively affect the cooking process.
It is fully developed with all necessary data files available to allow for mass manufacture. The company holds granted patents.
The product is aimed at a number of sectors within the food preparation market, in particular; the general consumer (BBQ and home cook), cooking enthusiast, gadget and gift and the commercial cooking sectors, all of which are well established with substantial global spend.
It is currently calibrated for beef steak, however it has been independently, successfully tested to work on pork and lamb as well. A function that can be included through a minor algorithm change or be added to future or premium versions.
• The steak is tested by placing the device onto the steak, which measures the firmness of the meat through the pressure exerted onto the device’s sensor. The device does not penetrate the meat.
• A microprocessor uses the thickness and resistance of the meat to calculate the level to which a steak is cooked, displaying the result on a digital screen in a simple and clear reading, within three seconds of placing the device onto the meat. The device is then immediately ready to check further steaks.
• The results are displayed as Blue, Rare, Medium Rare, Medium, Medium Well or Well Done.
• The device is cordless and is powered by an internal rechargeable battery.
• The device is calibrated to United States Department of Agriculture standards, but the user can adjust settings to their own preference using the user-friendly APP.
The company is requesting commercial or distribution agreements with commercial entities in retail and supply companies.
