WIREDEven if you don't know Tasty, BuzzFeed's food vertical, you've seen its work. Specifically those overhead-shot, quick-cutting videos showing you how to make tropical shrimp and pineapple grilled skewers, or churro ice cream bowls, or slow cooker honey garlic chicken.
The VergeForget the quizzes, memes, incredible feature journalism, and addicting Facebook videos. BuzzFeed's latest plan to get you hooked is a Bluetooth-connected hot plate. It's called the Tasty One Top, and it syncs up with BuzzFeed's hundreds of stylish recipe videos to help you properly prepare a meal.
TechCrunchHere's a sentence I never expected to write: BuzzFeed is making its first smart appliance, the Tasty One Top, available for pre-order. It sounds a little weird for a digital media company to try to sell you a fancy hot plate, but this is part of BuzzFeed Product Labs, which was created last year following the acquisition of e-commerce startup Scroll.
