To create affordable connected devices for the masses that solve real world challenges, and drive user engagement and social change.
The patent pending K-Mometer is a smart Wi-Fi connected thermometer that can first and foremost be used to monitor food safety and quality, and its use of an industry standard Type K thermocouple sensor and probe ensures that it can take the heat! The included probe can support up to 400 degrees Celsius or 752 degrees Fahrenheit. The sensor itself can support wider temperature ranges, from -270 degrees C to 1372 degrees C.
Never again be in doubt whether your masterpiece is truly done. Be a multi-tasking master by setting up alarms and be notified on your smart device when its time to take out your creation from the oven, grill, or even pot!
The K-Mometer offers the following distinguishing features versus what's out there in the market:
Each year in the United States alone, 1 in 6 Americans contract foodborne illness, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates it affects 48 million people each year, with 128,000 hospitalized and 3,000 fatalities.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, using a food thermometer such as the K-Mometer when cooking meat, poultry, and egg products is the only way to prevent foodborne illnesses due to undercooking. It is the only way to verify that food has reached a safe minimum internal temperature to destroy any harmful bacteria that may be in the food.
Recent research has shown that color and texture indicators are unreliable and for example, using the brown color of red meat as an indicator of “doneness” is taking a risk that the bacteria inside the meat is destroyed.
