The Cinder app lets you cook food the way you want it by cooking it to a specific temperature and notifying you when it is done. It is a companion to the Cinder Precision Grill. If you want to cook steak to medium rare, or salmon to melt-in-your-mouth, this is the way to do it.
The app also serves as a reference guide for how to cook with Cinder.
For basic cooking, the app is not needed. Cinder can be set to temperature manually with one turn of the dial. This is great for eggs and hashbrowns, or grilled cheese.

Guided cooking lets you cook to a specific result
Operate your Cinder remotely (start, cancel, monitor)
Receive notification when your food is done

First, Cinder automatically measures your food and performs a thermodynamic calculation to estimate the cooking time.
Next, Cinder monitors the cooking process and uses software to know exactly when your food has reached the proper temperature.
Previously, a generic countdown timer is used and the food is checked repeatedly for confirmation.

The app connects wirelessly to your Cinder and can start cooking. It receives status back from Cinder and lets you know when your food is done. If you are out of range, the app will let you know when it’s time to reconnect and update the status.

Top chefs have been cooking with precision temperature for years. One way to cook this way in the home is sous vide. Cinder cooks with similar results, but with less steps. We got rid of the water and plastic bags associated with sous vide, so you can put your food right on Cinder just like an electric grill.
Next, precision cooking has been limited to lower temperatures because water or steam was used. Cinder lets you break through this barrier and bring precision cooking to the entire temperature spectrum. Cinder was designed to allow accurate cooking across a wide temperature range.
It’s simple to cook your food to a specific temperature with Cinder.
Place your food inside Cinder, directly on the cooking plates, and gently lower the lid.
Open up the app and start your cook. You can be notified when your food is done, and Cinder will continue holding your food until you are ready to eat. That’s right, no hovering in the kitchen or anxiety about burning your food.
Optionally, finish with a ripping sear right on Cinder. Food like steaks are typically seared.
And it’s even easier to saute or brown with precise high temperatures:
Turn on Cinder and turn the knob to the temperature you want.
Once the temperature is reached, put your food on.
Cook until done.

Amazing Technology!!

Wow, I have to say I was skeptical of this whole idea at first—I mean, I’m a bit of a tech geek and a foodie myself so I was naturally drawn to this concept.

I came in with a critical eye towards certain aspects of the monitoring mechanism, in particular the remote control feature.

But since trying it out, I have found that from head to toe (or should I say from shoulder to thigh??) the product runs incredibly smoothly and I COULD NOT RECOMMEND IT MORE!! Precision cooking is truly an art, but this company makes it exceptionally manageable and convenient. I recommend trying it out with steak— Bon appetite!

This will change your Life

Throw on frozen food and leave. This thing will cook it amazingly. I never used to cook before getting the Cinder. Things have now changed. Great job

Last update problem

With the latest update a couple days ago, my cinder will not connect to my iPad. My iPad recognizes the serial number, but it never stops searching for it.

It worked perfectly before that firmware update, is there a way to roll it back or what can I do here?
