upliance.ai Introduces AI Cooking Assistant to Simplify Home Cooking

In a bid to transform the way people cook at home, upliance.ai, an Indian AI-powered home appliance startup, has unveiled its latest innovation – the AI Cooking Assistant. After wowing audiences on Shark Tank India, it has now bagged a whopping ₹34 crore in seed funding, catapulting its value to ₹143 crore.

The AI Cooking Assistant looks like a jar with a smart 8-inch screen. It can make more than 500 dishes including steamed rice and paneer stir fry. Mahek Mody, the chief of upliance.ai, emphasized in an exclusive interview with AIM that their collaboration with OpenAI goes beyond utilizing APIs, with the incorporation of their own trained models, setting them apart from conventional AI systems like ChatGPT.

Mody dreams of making a ‘Netflix for food,’ where you can find endless recipes without worrying about cooking being hard. The company’s special Up⤴️AI technology makes the smart jar do lots of things like chopping, sautéing, blending, heating and steaming. Mody said the jar checks things like how it feels and the thickness of the sauce to cook perfectly.

With support from investors like Khosla Ventures and Qualcomm, the company endeavors to redefine home cooking for consumers worldwide.
