I don’t cook a lot. And when I do, it usually ends up in disaster: either it ends up getting undercooked (because I have no patience and think it’s done when it’s really not) or overcooked (because I forgot all about it and left the stove on without switching the timer on.)
This means a lot of wasted food, a lot of frustration, and many more minutes where me (and my family) go hungry while I fix up some instant noodles or call for delivery.
If sometimes, you get a little bit absent minded in the kitchen like me, then you’ll definitely find the Scale Gas Range concept useful. It’s also a lifesaver, both figuratively and literally.
The Scale Gas Range is a cooking range with an integrated weighing scale, designed by Naeun Kang of SADI. The concept works on the assumption that as food is cooked, water is gradually evaporated. When the weight of whatever it is you’re cooking decreased by 30%, the gas valve is shut off automatically.
Of course, not all food would cook properly on the basis of this assumption, but it should at least prevent you from overcooking.
