Kitchen Gadget Klove Knob

Klove Knob

Price:$150

There’s a growing trend of smart cooking appliances taking over our kitchens, but too many of them require purchasing a brand new stove or other major appliance. Klove Knob is a new gadget that aims to revolutionize your cooking, without requiring you to purchase anything more than a simple knob.

The stove knob can be retro fitted to any modern stove, immediately providing you with voice-assisted interactive recipes, and some very useful safety features. Working as an intelligent conversational cooking timer, you can tweak it to check the cooking time based on the vessel you’re using, as well as the quantity of ingredients involved. It’ll even learn your preferences and patterns over time.

Basically, it’s the kind of simple gadget that hopes to soon make you wonder how you managed to live without it. Are you the kind of cook that’s great at being distracted at a pivotal moment? That’s who Klove Knob is aimed at. Not just working as a safety aid, it’ll also provide you with hundreds of easy to follow recipes that you simply listen to and follow the actions, all through its smartphone app. Plus, through a geofencing feature, it’ll even remind you to switch the stove off before you leave the house.

Installation is simple, merely requiring you to remove your existing knob, fixing a spindle adapter onto your stove, and slotting the Klove Knob on, meaning you’ll be ready to go in no time. We talked to Bahubali Shete, CEO and CTO, to find out more.

Life’s too short for eh meals, or uh oh moments!

Those moments when you’ve just taken your eyes off the stove to get the doorbell and the milk has boiled over. Or spent hours trying to scrape the burnt muck off the bottom of the pan. All that is a thing of the past. One little knob takes you from ‘Uh oh!’ to ‘Oh Wow!’
Turn the Klove Knob to a perfectly cooked dish. Every. Single. Time.

The voice enabled companion Klove app helps with each step of preparing your meal. The Klove knob monitors heat settings in real time and the app alerts you when needed. Klove keeps you connected, healthy and in control.

Here are some big features we’re excited about:

So – Is it a glorified cooking timer? No…

No, Klove Knob isn’t a glorified cooking timer. It adds a lot of value to consumers compared either App based timer or Alexa Timer:

  • App timer or Alexa do not have cognitive knowledge as how long it takes for the food to cook. The user has to know the time required or refer a cookbook everytime they cook.
  • App timer or Alexa won’t know possible ways to cook the same food, so can’t offer options for setting the cooking time. For example, App timer or Alexa won’t know that eggs can be hard boiled or soft boiled, or Pasta can be cooked in the pressure cooker or open pan. Hence won’t offer user options to set different cooking times.
  • Clear alert and notification: If you have multiple burners cooking at the same time, you won’t know which one is ready when the timer goes off.
  • Smart Geo-fencing: If you leave home while you are cooking, because you have a lot on your mind, you will get alerted.
  • App timer or Alexa won’t learn the actual cooking time on your cooktop. Hence it cannot personalize the cooking time for you.
  • App timer or Alexa timer cannot set the time automatically as per your recipe.Read more.. 

    Here’s what’s behind all that smart.

    Geofencing feature: Klove app reminds you to switch off the stove when you step out.

Trigger App from Knob: Automatically open Klove App when stove knob is turned on. This enables hands free operations rights from the beginning. Just say what you want to cook and Klove app will guide you through the recipe with voice instructions and timer control.
Klove Knob and App – Smart Timer
E.g: Klove knows that Pasta can be boiled in an open pot or pressure cooker. Klove then sets the appropriate cooking timer based on that detail of how you cook.
