Max Wieder is the CEO and Co-Founder of Celcy, a company building robotic smart cooking appliances that cook meals remotely to perfection. With a BS in Mechanical Engineering and MS in Engineering Management from Johns Hopkins University, Max dreamed up the concept of Celcy five years ago with his co-founders.

After building a prototype and selling out of their Beta Presales within a month, Celcy is getting ready to launch its second beta phase in the late spring of next year. Sign up to be a beta tester here.

Max emphasizes the importance of having the right team, prioritizing family, and not underestimating the grind of entrepreneurship.


Celcy is revolutionizing the home kitchen experience. They have created the first-ever autonomous cooking solution. Combining the convenience of an oven and freezer into a single appliance, Celcy’s smart cooking machine and kitchen appliance is the perfect solution for busy households.

With its patented, state-of-the-art technology, this unique device can cook and freeze food without the need for human supervision, allowing users to enjoy a meal without having to be physically present in the kitchen.

Whether you’re a busy parent, a professional chef, or a college student, Celcy is the perfect solution for anyone looking for an easier way to get delicious, home-cooked meals.

“We’re the first completely hands off kitchen appliance that from loading your food in the fridge to taking a hot meal outta the oven does not require you to be physically present.” – Max Wieder
