When boating do you ever find you’re in need to cook food? Do you bring a gas grill, do you bring a charcoal grill, or do you bring an electric griddle? All these choices don’t go with water. Why not choose a cooking burner specifically designed for water and wind resistance? This means that every afternoon shower, gusty breeze, or unexpected wave hit across the boat like a kid in a puddle. Newr has a new approach to these problems with its battery powered smart induction burner with smart phone integration and expandable cooking surface—Chef. Here are 6 advantages of having Chef as your cooking source and 6 disadvantages of using something else.

6 Advantages with Chef

Battery Powered Portability

Chef is battery powered induction burner which can add peace of mind knowing you will be able to anchor and cook even in the most remote locations. The battery capacity is targeted to be capable of cooking a day’s worth of meals, so, no need to worry about packing a cold lunch, cook what you catch as you catch. Every boat has a captain, now every boat can have a Chef.

Compact by Design

Boating requires unique choices when it comes to cooking on-board. Too often the decision to eat on-board is limited due to the inability to cook food, typically cold, prepared lunches are brought in a cooler. Why not plan to cook food by setting up ontop of the table, or maybe the cooler. Chef is portable, storable, and can be setup on almost any flat surface. So if you are pressed with a limited flat surface to cook your food, just remember Chef can be setup on any free flat space and stored when not in use.

Made for Adventures

Do you travel to state or national parks, rivers, or reserves? If so, likely you have been to one of these beautiful places during a summer storm. Chef is an induction burner so you can cook your meals even during the wettest and windiest of climates without worry of having your flame go out or you food not cook.

Child Safe Cookware

If you boat with small children then likely you have had to say “don’t touch that, it’s still HOT”. Chef provides its cooking using an induction burner. The principle behind induction is it only heats the ferromagnetic cookware, like cast iron or stainless steel, directly and not the adjacent surfaces. This means that the glass surface is cool to the touch shortly after removing the hot cookware. If cooking safely around kids is important to you then Chef is an ideal choice.

Standard Outlet Support

Chef can be charged off of any standard electrical outlet (US 110-120V) or by using solar panels or buy using any means of portable power, generator or battery pack or by the alternator in your boat or vehicle. The flexibility and availability of electricity means that almost anywhere you can go, Chef can be easily charged. So if you need a reliable cooking source which can be conveniently recharged, then Chef is a great solution.

Water Resistant Cooking

How many times has the perfect day for a cookout been ruined by a sudden rain shower? Chef is a water resistant cooking appliance so even the rainiest of days won’t affect the performance. Additionally, Chef is an induction burner which isn’t affected by the windiest of days. Whenever you are planning to cook on the water, turn and grab your Chef, so you know you’ll always be able to cook in the rainiest and windiest of days.

6 Disadvantages When Cooking Without Chef

Stationary Appliances

If you want to cook a meal using a grill or stove on your boat, you are subject to where the cooking appliance is located, how heavy it is, and how to store it when hot. If you want to entertain and have a dinner party or cookout, you will be standing with your appliance instead of with your guests. Time to get with the now and get Chef!

Carry Less Equipment to Cook Your Favorite Meals

Today’s mainstream stovetops and grills require plugs, hoses, and cords to be able to cook your food. This means you are anchored to the supply source. It is not too dissimilar to a dog on a leash. The dog is always happiest when it is off the leash and able to run—time to cook freely with Chef.

High Energy Cost When Cooking

Today’s best induction stovetop has recently achieved a milestone rating of 125kWh/yr; however, this is limited to the cost of energy at the time of cooking. With the ability to couple a battery to your cooking appliance you will be able to charge on off-peak times further reducing the cost of cooking to achieve the lowest possible energy rating of an induction cooking device.

Limited Cook Space

The latest grills and stovetops have many sizes and options, but they don’t have the flexibility to expand the cooking surface by adding additional devices. This means that the maximum size of the cooking surface is limited to the overall device dimensions and you are space limited to what you can bring on your boat. Why not take inspiration from the popular kids building blocks and have an appliance that can be connected together to change the overall size, this is what Chef can do!

Unaware When Your Food Has Finished Cooking

Why is it that we encourage notifications from our garage door, or doorbell, or email, but we don’t want to know when the water is boiling? The cooking technology has been left behind for too long and it is time to bring it to the forefront. With Chef and the Newr app all of the information from cooking will be shared to your connected smartphone and help you reduce stress and eliminate cooking errors.

Designed For 1 Environment, Not All

Most cooking appliances are designed to be used indoors or outdoors or on the go. This means that you have an appliance for cooking indoors, an appliance for cooking outdoors, and yet another appliance for cooking on the go. This is likely three different appliances to have cooking fuel for, different temperature settings for, and different acceptable cookware for. Why not streamline your cooking experiences into once platform which is uniquely designed to be perfect indoors, perfect outdoors, or perfect on the go—welcome the perfect first mate, Newr Chef.
