We got a great photo back in from one of our testers (Apprentice M) actually cooking, (albeit with their nice tablet computer poised precariously off the counter top) using a Smart Kitchen chart that details the various cooking heats and what they are good for to grill what looks like breaded chicken cutlets.
We have about 100 people in line for Beta testing spots but with 50% of our content up (soon to be 60%) we are very close to a soft launch date. It is a very exciting time around here at Smart Kitchen. Our little business creation is working for people and helping them learn to cook. It feels kind of like when your kid (mine are 5 & 2) succeeds and exceeds at something you taught them, like improvising with responsiblity, manipulation and guile (in a good way) and taking out a food tray before asking if they can eat a snack in front of the TV. The 5 year old sold that one to her Dad recently. “Done! Food in front of TV for you!”
We still have some room for a few more beta testers. If you are interested you should sign up on the main Smart Kitchen web site (www.smartkitchen.com) by entering your email address into the input box which will let us know to contact you. We will want to know your first name, last name, address, phone number and about your cooking level, your availability to interact with Smart Kitchen and will seek a committment from you to spend some time with Smart Kitchen and giving us feed back about ways we might improve the product.
We are very excited and hope to be sharing the fun (and better tasting food) with you all too.
