The world's first precision grill

Cook foods evenly and to the exact melt-in-your-mouth temperature you'd expect from a $750 Michelin-starred meal. We pull this off using next-gen thermal control and grill plate materials. Say goodbye to sous-vide.

“The results are delicious. Cinder is your new favorite home appliance.”
"Cinder is the magical meat maker I always wanted."

Cinder's Features

  • Precision

    Your food is held within 1° of the target temperature. Overcooking is impossible; food stays perfectly hot inside Cinder for hours.

  • Cooks and sears

    Unlike sous-vide units, Cinder pulls double-duty as a 450° professional searer. No oil necessary, so no smoky stovetop mess.

  • No prep or cleanup

    No vacuum-sealing, boiling water, or cleaning up pots and pans. When you’re done with Cinder, just wipe the grill down with paper towel.

  • Timing

    Cinder tells you how many minutes are left. And it holds food at its ideal temperature for hours. 

  • More than just meat

    Cinder is perfect for steaks, scallops, vegetables, pancakes, sandwiches, omelettes, and even chocolate strawberries!

How It Works

Cinder's CTO worked at Lockheed Martin, and programmed Cinder to use the same heating algorithms that ensure satellites don't go adrift from minor atmospheric changes. One of Cinder's thermodynamic innovations is using a similar technique to ensure its cooking plates don't get too hot and overcook your food. This precise temperature control is made possible through Cinder's array of tiny heating nodes built into its grill plates plus clever algorithmic temperature prediction.

Unlike traditional pans and stovetops that have wound heating coils (which produce uneven heat dispersion), our heating nodes are like a tiny array of lightbulbs continuously turning on and off. The result is temperature control on par with sous-vide cooking but without the hassle of water baths and vacuum sealing. Plus we can reach a much broader temperature range for searing.


Pair the Cinder with our free mobile app to have it auto-calculate how long your food will cook for and what the target temperature should be.

1. Place the food

Place your food as-is inside Cinder, close the lid, and tap the button on your phone. (P.S. Cooking from frozen works too!)

2. Food's done!

Once the food’s target temperature has been reached (the Cinder app will alert you), you have two great options:

  • A) Let the food sit at the target temperature while you prep your side dishes and chat with your dinner guests. Cinder’s precision grill plates make it impossible to overcook your food. It waits for you.
  • B) Optionally remove the food from the grill and switch the Cinder into Searing mode. This will raise the grill plates to 450°. Then place the food back into the grill for 45 seconds to get that restaurant sear, which develops that iconic caramelized flavor.

3. Cleanup

After you're done eating, wipe down the grill plates with a paper towel, and empty the drip tray. And you’re done. That's automatic cooking.
