Effortless Cooking with the Palate Smart Grill

Love cooking? The Palate Smart Grill intelligently combines food preparation with your iPad to help you cook tasty food in a fun, quick and hassle-free way.


“Once you try this way of cooking, there is no going back.”

No Asian household is ever complete without someone cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

Whipping up tasty treats and long complex meals are a staple for Asians worldwide. However within today’s modern society, more and more Asians are finding it difficult to find the time to cook up intricate dishes.

However, there may be a way to solve this dilemma, thanks to Palate Home, and a smart grill that can work with an iPad to assist you in the kitchen and ensure restaurant quality food without the heroic effort.

Created by Eric Norman, Don Norman, and Jim Reich, the smart grill is expected to revolutionise cooking methods, and allow busy individuals eat better in less time. The Palate directly challenges the George Foreman range of fat reducing grills that are currently the most popular on the market.

Users will be able to use their iPad to select how well done they want their meat to be. Steaks, burgers, and hot dogs can be placed on the grill and cooked exactly how you want them to be.

By digitally selecting the temperature of the food, along with the grill’s precise controlled temperatures, you can be sure that whatever you cook will never be under or over cooked. Foodie Ajay says: “Goodbye burnt food, now my burgers will be perfect!”

As the food gets close to being fully cooked, a message will come up on the user’s iPad to let them know and they can then decide to add on the finishing touches by increasing the temperature to help with searing. Temperatures can go up to a whopping 315 degrees celsius (600 fahrenheit).

As we know, if you invite Asians for a dinner party, or for any event as a matter of fact, there is a high chances of your guests coming late.

PalateThe Palate grill takes that into account by messaging you on your iPad to let you know your food is ready and if your guests are using typical Desi timing, then no problem, you can set the grill to hold the food for you until you are ready to eat.

This way, when you finally are ready to eat, your food will still be perfect, fresh and waiting for you to tuck into.

CEO Eric Norman says: “With the Palate Smart Grill, you start the cooking with a few taps on an iPad, and the grill executes a precision-temperature cooking process that cooks the food exactly the way you want it.

“With the Smart Grill’s technology, food is cooked perfectly even if the meal is delayed because guests are an hour late; it’s impossible to overcook or undercook the food.”

The makers of Palate believe: “Once you try this way of cooking, there is no going back.”

The grill is made with the modern hectic life in mind, and the grill aims to take the hassle out of cooking, so you can focus on other things and not be in the kitchen looking at the timer or clock on the wall, waiting for your food to be cooked.

This is a great step from Palate in bridging the gap between food and technology and perhaps the start of a range of smart grills for the future.

Soon we will be able to eat great tasting food without the great effort!
