Experience the debut of this new culinary smart device at booth #S4253, participate in hands-on demonstrations and discover how this compact device seamlessly integrates into any kitchen design.
TUCSON, AZ (January 6, 2022) – Cooksy, the new innovative brand behind the latest in smart cooking technology, marks its official launch at the 2022 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) happening from February 8-10, 2022, in Orlando, Florida. Designed to subtly fit into any kitchen design and easily integrate with existing range hoods, downdrafts, exhaust fans, or over-the-range microwaves, Cooksy brings game-changing technology to the kitchen industry to transform the way people cook – at any skill level. With a combination of video, artificial intelligence, thermal imaging technology, and the use of a tablet or smartphone app, Cooksy takes the guesswork out of cooking while helping to consistently create delicious meals.
“Coming from 25 years of electrical engineering while having a personal passion for cooking, I often wondered how I could combine the two worlds,” says Jeff Knighton, Founder & President, Cooksy. “We believe this is the next breakthrough in smart kitchen innovation; a small and sleek addition to any kitchen that will make a huge impact in the way consumers prepare their meals. A master chef might spend years learning to understand when the surface temperature of food is too hot or cold based on cooking sounds or visual cues, but Cooksy effortlessly brings this level of knowledge to the everyday chef.”
Visual and thermal sensors monitor food and pan temperatures across the entire cooking surface by the second, providing real-time feedback and precision temperature control. With simple step-by-step video instructions available through the app, Cooksy helps you re-create recipes just like the original creator intended, resulting in the same delicious result once complete. The Cooksy Pro also offers recording capabilities making this an ideal resource for social influencers and content creators focusing on recipe and meal development. “Kitchen designers, appliance manufacturers, and industry influencers need to know how this product will change the cooking category,” says Andreas Hansen. “This game-changing device offers an opportunity for home cooks of every level to improve their culinary skills, and without any added bulky apparatus to clutter the kitchen space. It teaches you how to use your cooktop to its full potential, essentially like having a personal chef to show how best to use your appliances. Cooksy is the ideal combination of form and function, so what better opportunity than KBIS to launch the latest in kitchen technology?” Cooksy was created following a successful crowd-funding program in May 2021. Distribution to select retail partners is available starting in February 2022.
