Food cooking updates via Bluetooth

Hot on the heels – pardon the pun – of a positive Bluetooth experience with Sony’s Bluray remote control for the PS3, Downtime has discovered another inspired Bluetooth device.

Whether it is watching a Bluray movie, or the footie, the iGrill for Apple mobiles combines the traditional food thermometer with Bluetooth technology to enable hassle free cooking.

The device, which was featured at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year is designed to enable users to cook meat to the correct temperature, but the only time they need to check it is when the device alerts them by sounding an alarm on the user’s iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Not only does the iGrill notify users of when the meat is done, the app will also provide updates with a countdown on the progress of one or several pieces of meat in the oven or under the grill.

There may not be anything new under the sun, but this gizmo certainly brings an interesting and useful variation to a tried and tested cooking technique that requires far too much time and attention for anyone with a busy modern lifestyle.
