Pantelligent – The tech savvy frying pan
Do you remember those days when your dish turned out to be, “What the hell is this” like; yeah, well we all have been there!
Today we live in the age of technology which let me tell you is at its peak. And still when we enter the kitchen to cook, we are no better than Stone Age people, and why is that??
Surprisingly, that’s because technology never entered the kitchen doors!!
Well, the imperfection ends here!!! Presenting – Pantelligent!!!
The name itself says it all; Pan + Intelligent = Pantelligent, the prodigy of Humberto Evans is a 12-inch frying pan that will teach you, show you and guide you how to cook!
In other words, Pantelligent is a frying pan that uses bluetooth, and inbuilt temperature sensors to communicate with the Smartphone app to help you cook awesome dishes.
Ain’t that just cool?
It all began a year ago when the makers felt the pinch of overcooked, undercooked, or burned food. That’s when they realized that frying pans (the most important tool for cooking) have barely changed since their inception.
That’s when they decided to bring about the much desired change and thus after a year of rigorous hard work, Pantelligent was born!
Pantelligent being the near-to-perfect frying pan gives you the ease while cooking and monitors every step of yours and lets you know exactly when the pan is at the right temperature, when it’s time to flip or stir, or for that matter when your food is perfectly ready.
The cooking surface is encrusted in a PTFE non-stick coating which is referred to as Teflon. PTFE is one of the best non-sticking coating that makes cooking and cleaning effortless. This coating holds a rough durability of 3-5 years which depends on the kind of usage you have.
Using the app, you can easily receive notifications within 30 to 50 feet of your pan and if you happen to leave the range then it will notify you to move closer.
Pantelligent uses 2 AAA batteries which have a life of approximately 9 months and again, you shall be notified when they require replacement.
With Pantelligent you can cook absolutely any dish you can think of.

The best part with Pantelligent is that, it makes cooking really effortless and super easy to understand the two most important factors of cooking: time and temperature!
The frying pan already comes with dozens of recipes that are carefully mentioned by the in-house chefs. These recipes include time and temperature profiles that the Smartphone app uses to help you get the exact results. Some of these dishes include: Mushroom Risotto, Chicken Piccata, Bhindi Masala, Buttermilk Pancakes, Asparagus, Pasta Carbonara, and the list just goes on…
All you need to do is download the app (which is already available) and view the complete list of recipes available.
Pantelligent gives you a completely different experience while cooking; it acts as an extra hand and helps you in almost every way.
With this frying pan, it is never a gamble and you get exactly the same result every time you make the dish, unless of course you make some mistake.
Pantelligent provides you with hands-free monitoring with the help of visual alerts and uses text-to-speech, similar to GPS while driving.
Due to Pantelligent you can easily multi-task and at the same time keep a check on the dish.
The Smartphone app has a ‘Record Recipe’ mode with the help of which you can easily record any recipe and can refer to at any given point of time in the future.
Also, the record mode can be used to record a recipe you come across and wish to make in the future and if you see that some recipe is missing then you can also add the same.
Exited to know how it works, read on..!!
To begin with, Pantelligent connects to your Smartphone wirelessly with the help of Bluetooth Low Energy and from there onwards the app takes care of the rest.
So, all you need to do is first open the app and pick the dish you wish to cook!
Then follow the steps for preparations of the ingredients and once you’re done with everything, just hit start cooking!
The app will show you how hot the pan is and how hot it should be. It will also keep updating you when it’s time to add the ingredients, stir or flip!!
All you gotta do is follow the alerts and make sure to keep the actual temperature i.e. the red line near the target temperature i.e. the green line.
Rest, Pantelligent will monitor the dish and will let you know when it is ready.
And, if you already know the recipe of the dish & just require the temperature control then all you gotta do is choose the “Freestyle Mode”
Looking at this frying pan, the idea and its technology, there is no question of doubting its sustainability or durability and leaves us with only one thing to say – Go for it!!!
