BuzzFeed Launches Tasty Induction Cooktop

BuzzFeed has launched its first smart appliance, the Tasty One Top, a Bluetooth-enabled induction cooktop.

The induction cooktop will connect directly to the new Tasty app for iPhone, which is available on the App Store with nearly 1,700 video recipes. According to BuzzFeed, the appliance was developed in honor of the second anniversary of its food-centric section, Tasty.

“In two years, Tasty has reimagined the recipe format as a visual, shareable and interactive medium, democratizing food and making cooking more accessible, social and fun in the process,” said Ashley McCollum, general manager of Tasty for BuzzFeed. “The Tasty One Top and app demonstrates our commitment to the intersection of content and technology, marking the beginning of the next step in the evolution of our business as we expand into new ways of using technology to bring people together around food.”

Designed by BuzzFeed Product Labs and developed with the help of GE Appliance’s First Build team, the One Top tracks the surface temperature of a pan or pot, as well as the internal temperature of food. The induction cooktop can be used for pan cooking, pot cooking, slow cooking, sous vide, and more, BuzzFeed noted.

Consumers can pre-order the Tasty One Top induction cooktop now for $149.
