Cooktop

The Paragon Induction Cooktop uses a connected thermometer to maintain food and liquids at a precise temperature. Feedback from the wireless temperature sensor controls the heat to maintain an exact temperature with virtually no fluctuation during the entire cooking process. Temperature is set directly on the cooktop or via the FirstBuild app on your mobile phone.

Wireless Sensor

The rechargeable Paragon temperature sensor communicates with your cooktop via Bluetooth. Constant temperature feedback allows the Paragon Induction Cooktop to apply the proper amount of power, maintaining your food at the selected temperature.

Mobile App

The free FirstBuild mobile app provides quick setup options and remote monitoring so you can be in another room while cooking. Search Firstbuild on the App Store or on Google Play to find the app.

*So, what the heck is Sous Vide Cooking?

Sous Vide is a method of cooking in which food is sealed in airtight plastic bags then placed in a liquid bath where the temperature is tightly regulated. The intent is to cook the item evenly, ensuring a properly cooked, moist and juicy inside without overcooking the outside.

FirstBuild is a co-creation community that is changing the way products come to market by letting a community influence the product from the very beginning. Backed by GE Appliances, we have access to world-class engineering and design talent.

Without countless contributions from community members who share our vision for precision induction cooking, Paragon would not have been possible. FirstBuild’s development of Paragon started with an idea submission by Brad Walchak on our FirstBuild.com web forum. Aaron Ma’s winning app design and Cosmin Mandita’s winning hardware design, along with dozens of ideas and challenge entries made Paragon a product that real people will use.

You can see all of the projects we’re collaborating with community members on by visiting the CoCreate section on the Firstbuild.com website. If you have any questions, you can always email us.
