In a world of instant everything, it’s hard to make anything from scratch these days. When sugar cravings sneak up on us, we'll opt for the pre-made items from the store more often than not. But with a smart baking device on the horizon, we may have an excuse to get back in the kitchen once again. The team at SideChef, a step-by-step cooking app, is catering to the amateur baker with a seriously innovative cookie maker that requires zero Pinterest recipe help. Here's what we know about the product.
Why it’s ground-breaking: You can have perfectly baked cookies in just 10 minutes. The dough comes to you in pod form, similar to what you get from in a Keurig coffee machine. There's no preheating, no mixing, and no cleanup.
What else it does: You can connect it with your phone for notifications on your baking progress and easily order more dough. You can even send a CookieGram, a video or text to other users once your cookies are done baking!
You can customize your cookie preference from chewy, classic, to crispy. And if you have a recipe of your own, the device has a manual mode where you can customize the time and temperature to ensure that your dough recipes turn out the way you want.
Plus, it's smart features even allows you to start baking anytime within four hours of setting the dough into CHiP. And it can even detect when the cookies are done. It'll start cooling down on it's own, so you won't ever have to worry about burning a batch ever again.
You can't get your hands on this magical cookie machine just yet, but you can donate to the Kickstarter campaign to make it a reality! At this point, the creators of CHiP are estimating that the machine will start shipping next fall.
