Hey all,

I enjoy cooking, but I usually don't have enough time in my schedule to dedicate my full attention to it.
I started working on a "smart" cooker that would let me be productive while my food is cooking. The idea is basically to choose a recipe on the app to set the cook-cycle over wifi, and have it send a notification when manual intervention is needed (like adding ingredients, stirring etc).

It has a temperature sensor embedded in the electric heating element, and sits on little feet that let it function as a kitchen scale.

Here's a rendering of how the final product might look:

There's some more info up here if you're curious: [url]spam removed[/url]

The app is a recipe app with trigger points for certain conditions. For example, an instruction like "let cook for 6 minutes" would have a little button next to it that would trigger a notification 6 minutes later.

Have any of you tried something like this before? I was thinking that with some calibration for the cookware it could fulfill the job of a rice cooker or slow cooker. Does anyone know what features separate a high-end rice cooker from a low or mid-range one?
