The latest in a trend of task-specific appliances, Taurus is designed for stir-fry fanatics and is the first of its kind! Just as the name of the action suggests, stir-frying requires a great deal of attention. Taurus eliminates the need to continuously stir the ingredients by integrating an automatic stir feature. This way, users can add their ingredients, set it to cook, and concentrate on other kitchen tasks. Using a smartphone or the intuitive device interface, users can choose from a variety of food and preset cooking modes to ensure their specified dishes are just right each time.
Functionally speaking, the stir fryer simply houses a rotisserie style motor on the top that powers an implement, that stirs the vegetables slowly and surely. It’s the aesthetic however that should be the point of interest. An absolutely new product category should have a radically new form factor to help it differentiate from other appliances. While the Taurus certainly looks incredibly premium, with the brushed metal + jet black finish, it outwardly looks too much (and can get easily mistaken for) a rice cooker… which I don’t need to tell you, isn’t a good thing for an innovative, new product!
