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.
What Can Paragon Do?
*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.
Benefits of Paragon Induction Cooktop
Monitor the temperature of water, oil, chocolate, cheese, milk, soup, or any other liquid.
Sous vide cooking gives perfect results like edge-to-edge medium rare steak, tender veggies, or 65°C eggs.
Stress Free Cooking
Connect your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth for easier setup and monitoring.

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.

With 3 kids 8-and-under, Taylor does a lot of cooking in his home. Taylor’s passion for Paragon is as much about making cooking easy (warming spaghetti sauce to the right temperature for the kids) as it is about making a perfect steak for a romantic home-cooked dinner.
Chris has been designing appliances for over 13 years. Chris realized that emerging induction technology combined with precise temperature control on the cooktop would make a wide variety of precision cooking methods possible on a single product.
Engineer and Foodie
Justin developed FirstBuild’s open innovation platform. Justin is also a lover of fine foods, which has led him to work with the FirstBuild community to expand Paragon’s capabilities beyond sous vide…to deep frying, poaching in butter, and tempering chocolate. He’s currently experimenting with beer brewing and candy making.
