Heston Blumenthal's Intelligent Microwave

British chef Heston Blumenthal has helped develop an intelligent microwave that can scan food and alter temperatures for perfect cooking.

Blumenthal told the Daily Maill that, “‘Foods differ enormously in their water content. Vegetables, for example, are made up of between 85 and 95 per cent water. Meats are about 70 per cent, butter is less than 20, while most cooking chocolate is only 3 per cent water.’

His intelligent machine, developed with Breville and costing £279.95, can detect the moisture level inside food and alter cooking temperatures to match - something the machine does even while food is cooking.

Blumenthal explains the new device in the video below, going into depth about how microwaves actually cook our food.
