When a recipe is created with Cooksy, it is recorded the entire pan temperature, which will be impacted by the amount of cold food added to pan, this is why doubling or halving recipes isn’t advised because it alters the temperature more than was done in the original recipe, so getting back up to temperature takes longer then the recipe advices, throwing the process out of equilibrium.
To ensure success, the original recipe must be followed with proportion sizes (i.e. same number of chicken breasts, same measurement of volume) to keep up with the timing of the recipes.
Preparing and measuring all ingredients (mise en place) before starting a Cooksy recipes ensures everything can be added at the appropriate time.
Avoid making substitutions as this will throw off the ability to follow the recipe.
Stainless steel pans cannot be used with Cooksy at this time as the refraction causes a miscalculation of pan temperature until ingredients are added.
