2455 Cheater Pan

The "smart everything" revolution, or as I like to call it, the "dumb people" revolution, has gone out of the fire and into the frying pan.


Because the newest in the smart gadget line-up is none other than a smart frying pan.  Don't burn your meals any longer because you forgot to turn down the heat.  Don't screw up a delicate recipe because you went one degree over or under a crucial simmer or boil decision.  The smart frying pan is for you.

New York City-based brother-sister combo Rahul and Prachi Baxi have invented a new product they call SmartyPans.  You know, for your smartypants phone.  It's bluetooth-enabled of course, which is nice since actual teeth will soon be involved in masticating the product of said SmartyPans. 

Also, it will be able to connect with your smartypants phone to access recipe apps, where you'll be provided with step-by-step cooking instructions.  Because you know, God forbid that you should read a recipe on a silly old-fashioned piece of paper.  You want to put your expensive extreme-heat sensitive phone right next to the frying pan.

The pan supposedly warns you if you need to adjust the temperature and uses built-in sensors to track both the weight and the temperature of the stuff in the pan.  It also uses that data to track caloric information and can sync with fitness apps to tell you if you're cooking something that will blow your diet. 

Inventor Rahul says it's like GPS for cooking.

Cool.  GPS can get you lost if your phone's battery runs out.  Now you have the chance to go hungry too.

In a related story, inventors have come out with a "smart hat."  It uses GPS to determine if your head is still attached to your shoulders.

America, ya gotta love it.
