Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The Pantelligent smart frying pan helps novice and advanced cooks alike by delivering cooking temperature in real time to a Bluetooth-connected smartphone app.
  • Pantelligent is a well-constructed 12-inch skillet with a nonstick surface.
  • Pantelligent's smartphone app supports iOS and Android, and it ships with several dozen "temperature-enabled" recipes.

CONS

  • The Pantelligent does not work with induction cooktops.
  • At $199, the Pantelligent is pricey--especially given that its Teflon coating limits its useful life to about five years.
  • If your cooktop can't maintain a steady temperature, the app will have you adjusting it almost constantly.
The Pantelligent smart frying pan is a 12-inch nonstick skillet with temperature-sensing electronics that communicate by Bluetooth with an Android or iOS smartphone app. The app in turn provides cooking instructions based on that data and your input--how well done you like your steak, for example--or its own preloaded "temperature-enabled" recipes. Advanced chefs can create their own recipes within the app.

It’s incredibly helpful to use when cooking something where temperature is crucial, but we’re not sure it’d be as useful when cooking say, eggs or a grilled cheese sandwich — two of the 50 or so recipes currently available.

...I became a believer after Pantelligent helped me (posing as a kitchen klutz) create a perfectly cooked, and tasteful, blackened tilapia. Immediately my skepticism sensor dipped even though the inaccuracy of electric stovetop burners produced constant temperature adjustments at the pan's request.

Let’s say you buy a delectable ribeye steak that you intend to cook for your best friend (hopefully me). The only information Pantelligent needs is the thickness of the steak, which you can even measure in-app using a nifty ruler tool.
