Global Chef consists of three major parts. The “brain” that can be twisted off, the white glass surface, and the black Oled sensing surface. This is mainly to make it easier for the user to clean the white glass surface after putting food on it. The small holes on the glass surface are speaker and microphone holes that transmit and record sound and cancel noise from frying pans or loud fans.
