Maverick Industries, Inc. has introduced Chef Tunes, a kitchen thermometer, speaker system and hand’s free phone answering device all in one. The unit uses Bluetooth connection to work with iPhones, iPads, Smart phones or tablets and plays your music while you cook.
The unit is a full-feature Roasting thermometer with pre-set temperatures for most meats. It acknowledges your selection with a voice alert “You have selected Beef Rare” and sets the selected appropriate temperature. It also alerts you when the food is done.
While in use, the unit becomes a speaker phone if you receive a phone call, the company said. It also acts as a digital clock when not in use as a thermometer. The unit is rechargeable and can run up to four hours in full use without charge. It comes equipped with a USB charging port and plug for direct charging.
