    Default iGrill Takes the Guesswork out of Cooking Meat


    MMi Live @ MacWorld

    I’m sure Apple never had cooking meat in mind when they developed the iPad, but that hasn’t stopped developer iDevices from pairing the iGrill with one. iGrill is the first Bluetooth enabled device that helps you cook meat perfectly every time. It consists of two parts, the iGrill thermometer device and the free companion App.

    “iGrill turns your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into your own personal sous-chef, enabling you to multitask between your grill or oven and guests with the peace of mind that your food is perfectly cooked, at target temperature and safe for consumption.”



    The iGrill is a standalone unit that works in conjunction with any iOS device. The unit comes with a temperature probe and a digital readout that is bright and clear. It’s been designed to be used in a busy kitchen and if you happen too spill something on it, the device cleans up quite easily. The iGrill uses Bluetooth technology to connect to iOS devices and has a 200+ foot range. The unit works perfectly well as a stand-alone unit even though it’s intended to be used with an iOS device.



    The iGrill app can display a multitude of information including the amount of time left till your steak is done and it has a cooking timer as well. It also has a meat thermometer screen that should be familiar to anyone who’s ever cooked a turkey. The iGrill also supports multiple probes, “Because everyone likes his or her steaks cooked differently.” The iGrill is available now for $99.

    Yep I actually want this. Been looking for a replacement wireless cooking thermometer... Wish it was cheaper though! $50 or less and I'd buy it now.

    I like it

    I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

    Old news is old.

    And 200 ft range over Bluetooth? I highly doubt that. Only with some sort of narrow beam antenna. If I start my truck in the driveway and am not already near the very front of my home my BT doesn't even connect, I can't imagine this reaching the necessary distance throughout most people's homes.

    Idea = somewhat cool; price = fail

    I wonder if that guy was cooking one day and was like, "how can I correlate this with iDevices so that I can try and make bank"? So he took someone else's idea, tied it to Apple products, and raised the price...

    Idk man, I tested the distance of my ps3 controller and I had my back to the side of my 2nd neighbors house at least 200+ft away and my brother said I was still moving thru the menu...then again thats a playstation and a small phone chip isn't as strong, still point being that Bluetooth can reach pretty far

    I can see it now.

    iOS 5.X.X. update: "Fixed a bug that caused the iGrill food temperature and cooking time to display incorrectly resulting in human bacterial poisoning and DEATH."

    You can buy a digital temperature probe at stores like Target for less than $30....

    I use a slow cooker/smoker outside. Lots of times it takes over night to cook. I'm ordering one asap. I've tried cheap thermo's, they are not worth it either if the radio freq doesn't penetrate the house walls. Bluetooth might make it far enough for me.
