Loki Products has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the new Loki Smart WiFi Meat Thermometer.
According to the company, the thermometer delivers temperature and cooking notifications to a mobile app on any iOS or Android mobile device. The Loki app predicts cooking time and actively tracks the time remaining to cooking completion.
In addition, the Loki can be set to provide multiple alerts and has monitor, track and record capabilities. Dual temperature probes deliver internal and ambient readings. The user can connect up to four temperature probes to track the progress of four meats at once.
The app is said to be intuitive, accepting temperature directives and offering suggestions for cook times, temperatures and recipes. The app also enables a consumer to share cooking profiles, recipes and photos on social media.
“The product was born out of my family’s passion for great food and the desire to spend more time with each other during our weekly dinner gatherings, rather than watching the oven, smoker, or grill. We wanted to be able to start our smoker in the morning and monitor the cooking from anywhere,” said James Hammer, CEO of Loki Products.
Nearing the production phase, the Loki meat thermometer is expected to be available through retail channels in the first quarter of 2017.
