Concept design work produced for Grace Lee’s project, Codlo. The product design transforms your rice or slow cooker into a sous-vide machine; creating easy, healthy gourmet cooking at home. It comes with commercial-quality precision and smart capabilities to help along the process. Her goal, along with business partner Xi-Yen Tan, is to make sous-vide cooking easy and accessible. The technique is currently limited to top chefs, but they wanted to share the brilliant simplicity of this cooking technique with home cooks. Existing consumer sous-vide appliances are too expensive , bulky, or complicated to use so they decided to build their own to address those issues.

The product development stage was undertaken at Centreline in London and led by product design engineer, Jonathan Mason. They successfully engineered Codlo so that it accurately regulates the water temperature in your cooker to ensure perfect cooking everytime. Focus was on building a better temperature control system that works with any simple cooker. Not only this, but Codlo learns as it cooks: automatically calibrating and updating PID parameters in the same cooking cycle, on-the-go. Thus Codlo can be used in a variety of situations.
