To understand how solid-state cooking is used in the kitchen, one should first be familiar with the important impact of heat in food preparation. Whether you are defrosting frozen meat, baking a cheesecake or roasting a whole chicken, heat must be delivered to the product. Typically, the more uniform the heating process, the better the cooking outcome is. Unfortunately, heating food evenly today takes a long time, since food does not conduct heat very well. To address this issue, conventional ovens create a high ambient temperature to rapidly heat the surface of the food, through which heat gradually flows into the product. Not only is this process slow, but it also exposes the food surface to high temperatures for a long time, which may dry or even burn the food. Another way to address this issue is by using a microwave oven, which vibrates water molecules inside the food and not just on the surface. This helps accelerate the heating process; however, due to very non-uniform heating, it typically results in low quality cooking.
Consider multiple cooking technologies over a variety of foods and you will see that when comparing the speed, quality and convenience of the results, most of the time one would come at the price of the others. For example, prepare a steak in a microwave oven and you will get a delightfully fast result, but at the price of poor quality. At the other end of the spectrum, prepare the steak in a low-temperature oven and you will be waiting a long time and have the inconvenience of needing to change the temperature settings during the cooking process. Enter Goji’s technology. Goji tried to tackle this problem by making food cook at a higher quality, faster speed and more easily, using its innovative technology. Goji's technology is capable of heating food much more uniformly than conventional technologies through the use of solid-state heating combined with its patented closed-feedback control mechanism, which actually adapts the heating parameters to suit each food product. In turn, this ability means that users can cook food faster and prepare a range of dishes easily without compromising on quality.
Faster and more even heating gives users a new value-adding option in the kitchen, either on a standalone basis or in combination with other heating technologies such as convection, steam or broiling. It’s possible to defrost evenly and quickly with minimal damage to the food product or to prepare a high quality multi-component meal for a whole family easily and at a fraction of the conventional time. For food connoisseurs, this technology opens up exciting new possibilities.
Whether you are a practical and convenience-driven user or a food adventurer, RF solid-state cooking is bound to make a positive impact on your food creations!
RF cooking utilizes a high power solid-state amplifier which, as part of a complete RF module, transmits radio wave energy into an object to heat it. Unlike the magnetron in a microwave oven, the digital RF module can accurately control the frequency, amplitude and phase of the radio-waves. When combined with Goji’s proprietary closed-feedback sensing algorithm, the RF module enables more uniform and consistent cooking results, while shortening and simplifying the cooking process.
Goji develops and markets RF cooking technologies for household, commercial and industrial applications in the food industry. The novel Goji™ technology facilitates controlled and responsive heating, delivering unprecedented cooking performance. The company holds a broad IP portfolio, with over 200 issued and pending patents on its technology. Goji provides a full range of licensing, design and manufacturing services to commercial and white goods appliance manufacturers. For more information, visit www.gojifoodsolutions.com.
