Information from the unit’s weight sensor can also control cooking, modulating heat so a balsamic reduction sauce will be reduced by exactly 75% without worry of burning it.

With conventional cookers, you’re unable to maintain the perfect cooking temperature throughout the process. If you’re not at home, it’s impossible to monitor or intervene if plans change.  Some recipes call for a 5 hour cook time, yet you work an 8 hour day. Some recipes call for an initial, brief high-temp sear, followed by a low-temp tenderizing braise for several hours, finished with increasing the temperature to 165˚F at the last minute for safe serving. With recipe-specific cooking programs to select from, and an easy click and drag interface to create your own, it’s easy to pull off a fancy recipe without even being in the room.
