BuzzFeed is getting into the smart appliance business with the Tasty One TopHere'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.
BuzzFeed made a smart hot plate that syncs with its viral cooking videosForget 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.
This BuzzFeed Kitchen Gadget Makes You the Best Chef EverEven 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.
