About the Author: The Studio


  1. i dunno, but seeing those corporate automated cooking models, right after reading online discussions about things like wages and tipping culture, makes me feel weirdly misanthropic …

  2. In Europe we've had Thermomix (from Vorwerk) since the 1960s. Since the 1980s we've had it in versions where it's practically an automated kitchen like you're talking about… It cuts, boils, fries, broils, sous-vide, mixes, steams and more. It has tens of thousands of recipes – all fully customizable. It has a WiFi connection, has an app (that works well). Since the 1980s it has been able to automate cooking and later versions have just built on top of that with connectivity features.

    Kind of ridiculous it didn't make the cut into the video… look into it!

  3. I love the studio so much for giving everyone the opportunity to talk about tech they are passionate about.
    Editing and presentation is amazing on this one.

    And that Nymble thing almost reminded me of 3D printers. Just with loading ingredients instead of filaments. Amazing.

  4. Anyone else feel like this kind of video deserves at least its own series if not channel? Would be cool to look at different consumer smart tech and make the knowledge of its existence and how to use it to improve our quality of life more accessible to the masses 🙂

  5. Thing is for me, it's actually the meal prep and cleanup that I don't like, spending all that time. Chopping and cutting is hard and then cleaning takes extra time after the meal is over.

    I actually like cooking and preparing the food myself, I don't like chopping.

    So a device that only requires me to do the part of cooking I don't like… Yeah that's a no for me

  6. Honestly, I dont mind the "cooking" part of cooking, which most of these machines do. I want to give the food I make my touch of flavour and taste. But i hate prepping the meals. Washing, peeling, chopping, etc. are the parts which are most time consuming and frustrating.

    I just want a machine which make tomato and onion sauce once put in the tomatoes and onions – no need to wash the tomatoes and no peeling or chopping the onions and garlic.
    The same time the machine would boil the pasta perfectly drain the water and all I have to do is flavour it the way I like it.

  7. For the price of most of these automated cooking thingamajigs I could spend the same money on a nice kitchen knife, a nice pan/some pots and just take a cooking class and become a good cook myself.

  8. If a machine can really prepare a variety of foods in an automated way, then doesn't have to fit on a counter. It could be the size of a large fridge and cost $5000 and it would still be worthwhile. There are a lot of large appliances that everyone has despite their size. People even have cars, do you know how large and expensive a car is?

  9. It's gonna be difficult to automate food at home, because the machine would have to a lot of different things, but only occasionally. And it would have to be cleaned. It's a lot easier to make a machine that does one specific thing all the time. For example there are automated juicers that turn oranges into juice. You don't even have to cut the oranges, or do anything, you simply throw in a crate of oranges and juice comes out. But that's way too specific to have in your house. It doesn't work with just any fruit, only oranges. A lot of food that you see in the grocery store is made in factories that are largely automated. It's easier on that scale.

  10. Very good video! But if you are covering kitchen robots and miss to check the Thermomix, it’s like talking sports car and not talk about Porsche

  11. won't happen. frozen food existsmis cheap and requires 0 work. people who are too lazy to cook are also too cheap to buy a $1500 cooking machine AND clean it afterwards. you can almost never blindly follow a recipe without getting a subpar meal. the machine can't taste and can't see if the food looks perfect. manual cooking will always be best.
