New oven could make dinner easier, faster and more delicious
Using radio frequencies, meals as varied as steak and veggies can be made in one pan, in record time.
When it comes to easy, convenient meal prep, one-pan dinners are the new black. They're great for people who just don't have the time or patience to slave over multiple pots and appliances and keep track of all the different cooking times and instructions. Because we know what happens then: One thing's overcooked, the other thing's undercooked, and the peas! I forgot the peas! They've now embedded themselves into the surface of the pan and are growing roots.
That's why one-pan dinners are so great – but they, too, have their downsides. Mainly because you have to make sure all the elements of your meal start and end at the same cooking times. Salmon and veggies? Sure, but if the salmon's too thick, you'll have accidental sushi and blackened carrots. Back to square one.
This quandary is on its way to being solved, thanks to a bit of ingenuity from a startup called Gogi. Headquartered in Bermuda, the company does its research and development in Israel, under the leadership of Shlomo Ben-Haim. He has been a professor at both Harvard University and the Technion Institute in Israel, and is a med-tech entrepreneur.
Using a revolutionary technology that's been touted as "the oven of the future," the appliance adjusts its own frequency to ensure even cooking throughout, even with multi-component meals. It's known as solid-state RF (radio-frequency) technology, and it also cooks meals much faster than conventional ovens – about half the time.
The Goji oven is still in preliminary stages, but developers are working with manufacturing partners to incorporate their technology into their products. Goji's head RF chef, Eyal Torres, and lead RF physicist, Amir Burstein, work out of the Israel R&D office. They recently held a demo of the oven at the NXP Tech Forum event in Austin, Texas.
The company also explained the technology in a video:
