It All Started
With an Idea

Why can’t the stove be stored away when not in use? With a house of seven, the stove top was vital counter space and one of the times between being a cooking appliance and counter space a towel was placed on a recently used burner. Luckily, only the smoke detector and a new towel was needed.

That question spurred the idea of having a stove that could be easily set up and stored away, or taken outdoors–and so Chef was imagined. Chef is: smart, battery powered, wireless, water resistant, quiet induction burner capable of working independently or together with other Chefs to help complete the cooking needs.


Founded at the end of 2021 and as the classic startup story goes, Newr originated in the founder’s mother’s house in Greenwood, IN. Newr is a product technology startup with a concentration on smart home appliances that combine versatility with fun in an efficient experience.

We believe in function for purpose and the smartest products feel the easiest to use. Creating the newr standard, one product at a time.

Our first initiative, the smartest induction stove. Newr introduces Chef, a cord cutting, battery powered induction stove, enhancing fun and convenience.
