What if you could prepare an entire meal at once? Smithsonian magazine covers the RF cooking revolution. Randy Rieland, a digital media strategist and a contributing writer in innovations, speaks with Yuval Ben-Haim, President of Goji, on the future of RF cooking.
“Beyond cutting cooking time significantly for a wide range of dishes, this method results in tastier and healthier food by cooking it more evenly,” explains Ben-Haim.
Rieland presents that though as many as 90 percent of American homes have a microwave oven, it is mainly used for reheating meals and preparing popcorn. The magnetron, a common cooking element in every microwave oven, heats food by sending waves into the oven, however it does so in a “shotgun” manner - some parts of food get hot while others stay cold.
Goji solves the issue by using RF technology, a much more accurate heating method. It makes use of a unique feedback loop which senses the food and adjust RF heating parameters automatically. In this manner Goji provides a better and healthier cooking option for consumers. “Beyond cutting cooking time significantly for a wide range of dishes, this method results in tastier and healthier food by cooking it more evenly,” explains Ben-Haim.

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.
