About

Why Chef-e

Keeping freshness before cooking:

Food ingredients may decay over time before we start cooking. Chef-e has a build-in refrigerator with cooling temperature ranging from -5 degree Celsius to 5 degree Celsius, keeping ingredients fresh for days before cooking.

Chef-e has three major parts: a refrigerator unit, a cooking unit, and a supplementary unit. Ingredients can be placed in a pot, storing inside the refrigerator unit. A controlling device, and 3 liquids container are located in the supplementary unit.

The only 'trick' is that Chef-e needs to be connected to a home router by an Ethernet cable (the one connects computers to routers). And do a port forwarding on the router. If you have never done it before, don't worry. We covered these in Chef-e user manual. It's as easy as using Chef-e to cook a delicious meal.

What Chef-e can do?

Remote control:

Chef-e allows you to prepare food one day ahead, and cook it the other day, while keeping freshness of the ingredients. No matter where you are, at office, at class, at gym, at shopping mall, on the beach, on the plane, or just at home gaming, as long as you have access to Internet, you can cook.

Reliable connection:

Comparing with some slow cooker tagged with 'WiFi-enabled remote control', but often loose connection when you are away from home. Chef-e use build-in web page to receive incoming signals, establishing a reliable connection to your personal controlling device. Any electronic device that has instant access to the Internet is suitable for controlling Chef-e.

For people having long work, or long way back home:

Yes! Any time you want, any place you are, cooking is just that easy. You can start cooking before getting off work, and dinner will be ready when you gets back!

Easy to master:

Don't know how to cook? It's just like an app game. The basic control interface is as simple as it looks. Press the button, then the cooking starts automatically. No particular cooking skills are required. Cooking can be fun and easy as playing video games.



Example cooking procedure:

Recipe - seafood spicy tofu soup

Day 1:

Place soft tofu, beef, mushroom, crab meat, spicy cabbage, shrimp, squid rings, and Mussel meat in the pot. Put pot inside the refrigerator unit. Adjust refrigerator temperature between -2 degree Celsius to 3 degree Celsius.

Day 2:

Step 1, log on control interface using a computer, a smart phone, or other electronic devices that have instant access to Internet. Turn on 'open' operation to transport pot from refrigerator unit to cooking unit.

Step 2, after pot being transported, turn on 'water' operation to add water into pot. Adjust flavors by adding 'sauce1' and 'sauce2' into pot.

 Step 3, choose a cooking power from the 3 power options on the control interface. Switch cooking powers during cooking if necessary.

Yes! It's just that easy!

Any place you are, as long as you can access internet, cooking is easy as 1, 2, 3 !


Multipurpose 

Chef-e is now able to steam, stew, and grill! We recommend using nonstick, heavy duty aluminum foil for grill.



Technical Lists

Waterproof surface: safe & easy-cleaning.

Scratch protection: longer life time of heating plate.

Advanced ventilation system design: largely reduces internal temperature of the heater.

Temperature control: detects surface temperature & constant surface temperature.


Timeline

Risks and challenges

We put safety first, we pursue perfection. Therefore, if necessary, we may make small modifications for some part of the final product.

We are picky with details, so when factories manufacturing the product, we will be there. We will make sure only 100% satisfied parts can pass through.

We will also optimize control interface. Keep it simple, but also adding some pleasing features.
