Sous-vide (“under vacuum”) cooking means setting meat and vegetables inside a sealed bag and placing the whole thing in a container of temperature-controlled water. When done correctly, the result is tender chicken and silky eggs. Besides bringing you closer to molecular gastronomy, it’s far more glamorous than a Crock Pot. Mellow’s sous-vide cooker takes the connectivity found in thermostats and smart alarms and uses it to make an autonomous cooking system that won’t burn down the house. Available for preorder, $400.

When set correctly, you can drop in salmon steaks for a dinner party, and set the device to have them done right after guests arrive.

Because the Mellow connects via Wi-Fi, it can also take commands mid-cycle to extend or shorten the cooking time if you’re delayed or coming back early.

Some sous-vide purists swear by using vacuum-sealed bags for the ingredients, but the Mellow doesn’t require them. It comes with a set of resealable plastic bags.
