Pantelligent Is A 'Smart' Pan That'll Keep You From Burning Dinner

The future is now.

There's no worse end to a day than putting in the effort to prepare a home-cooked meal only to have it burn. The very thought of it makes us reach for the take-out menu without a second thought. Well, lucky for all of us it looks like those days of overcooked, inedible homemade dinners might just be behind us, if the the newest high-tech pan to reach the market, Pantelligent, lives up to its promises.

Pantelligent uses Wi-Fi, a heat sensor placed in the middle of the pan and your smart phone to ensure that you never burn another meal again. You just tell it what you're cooking (via your phone) and it will let you know when the pan is hot enough to start (or if it's too hot and needs to be turned down), when it's time to flip, and when your food is ready to eat. 

Guys, the future is now. Watch the video below and see how it works.

Pretty cool, we know. There are a few downsides to this pan. One, it's pricey ($199). And two, it's on backorder. If you're still interested, check out the site for more information.
