You were probably taught to stay in the kitchen while you're cooking, so it's a strange concept to suggest that you can walk away, watch TV in another room or even have a nap while your supper is on the stove. The X-Control system invites you to distance yourself at various points in the dinner-preparation process and equips you with a necessary tool for monitoring your meal remotely.

Fatih Can Sarıöz's invention comprises an induction cooking plate with the space for up to four pots or frying pans, and a generously large touchscreen controller. The panel charges when it's connected to the stovetop and, once you remove it, it communicates with the appliance via bluetooth. With the X-Control remote, you can set up timers, adjust temperatures and browse recipes with ease. Stats for Hi-Tech Hotplate Panels Trending: Older & Average
