(Pocket-lint) - Cooking is one of life's great joys, whether it's sticking something in the oven quickly or doing a full meal prep with extensive steps and instructions to follow.
However, as any keen home cook will know, one of the challenges of using any kitchen is in finding space for all the appliances you'll find yourself needing for different recipes. That's where TOKIT's Omni Cook comes in. It's an astounding kitchen device that can accomplish countless different cooking tasks in one. Find out everything you need to know about it right here.
1. 21 functions in 1
At its core, the Omni Cook does what its name suggests - it can cook things in an absolute myriad of ways. Depending on how you set it up, it could be a blender, mixer, slow cooker, steamer, rice cooker, mincer, grinder, kettle, juicer, wok and so much more.
This means that you can forget about having to figure out where to store each one of these functions in a separate device, and can clear all that space out for just the Omni Cook and a few accessories. It also makes planning for a meal super easy, featuring an automated cooking guidance system with the Cloud Recipe Database with over 100 recipes developed by culinary professionals. Follow the instructions step-by-step by simply putting the ingredients into the large 2.2-litre mixing bowl, preset the timer, and press the start-up button.
Omni Cook will play a pleasing short sound of music to notify you once the first step is completed. Thus, the final outcome, sooner, an exciting new meal accompanied with the aroma ready to be enjoyed. Omni Cook could even help set the menu for you, via accessing the cloud recipe database from its built-in screen. From there you can choose from over 100 recipes for it to guide you through.
Equipped with a 1,000W-1,200W High-Power heating element, TOKIT is also able to precisely hold temperatures between 35°C to 180°C (95 and 356 Fahrenheit) so meat, vegetables, grains, and much more are cooked at the optimal temperatures with maximum nutrition. Therefore, Omni Cook ensures food safety is a priority by pre-setting the right temperature to maximize the taste of all dishes for the benefit of your family's diet.
2. Modular accessories
Finally, one of the best parts of using Omni Cook is that you can pick and choose what you need it to do. If you mainly want it for whisking and sous-vide, that's great, but if you suddenly decide that you'd like to try a recipe that uses it to do some steaming, you can just order a steamer accessory to make it perfect.
There are also accessories to help you slow cook and more, so you can be confident that there's something out there to level up your experience with Omni Cook.
3. Easy cleaning
Even with the smart tech behind it, though, cooking can still be a pretty messy business, and there will come a time when you have to clean things out - hopefully after you've enjoyed some top-notch home-cooked grub.
That's why the Omni Cook has some really intelligent settings to make cleaning easier, all part of its operating system. The core of this is a pre-clean mode where you fill up the bottom of the pan with a litre of water and leave it to soak through grime, while the Omni Cook smartly uses the water better than a simple soak could ever do. This makes it trivial to wash away baked-in grime, freeing you up to do other things instead of slaving over the dishes.
Plus the Omni Cook can spin at a rapid speed of 12,000 rpm, integrated with a powerful 500W high-speed motor and strong quad-blade cutting head, the seal design of which eliminates the production of lampblack for easier cleaning.
After successfully raising over $1 million with more than 1,600 backers on its Kickstarter crowdfunding project during the first half of 2021, TOKIT announced the official launch of its innovative smart food processor, Omni Cook, on official websites in the UK starting from 20 November and priced at £649.
