KitchenAid has entered the smart home category with the debut of its world-first Smart Oven+ with powered attachments at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Single, double and combination oven configurations were shown on the KitchenAid stand.
Drawing inspiration from its iconic stand mixer, the KitchenAid oven features three oven-powered attachments: a grill, steamer and baking stone that connect to a powered hub at the back of the oven. Users can also cook a meal without the attachments with true convection functionality for better circulation and air flow, resulting in consistent heating and cooking.
The Smart Oven also features a 4.5-inch full colour LCD display for users to view and select from a variety of settings and cooking modes. It is compatible with the KitchenAid app to view the cooking status, direct operations remotely and receive notifications and alerts.
With Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa compatibility, users can also adjust settings with voice commands. Using the Yummly app, cooking can be customised to personal tastes, nutritional needs and skill level.
KitchenAid senior brand manager, Christy Hoskins said, “Our vision for connected KitchenAid products is to give makers the tools to expand their abilities in the kitchen and unlock new cooking possibilities. We were inspired by the KitchenAid stand mixer – we wanted to create an appliance that would have the same versatility and multi-functionality, just as the stand mixer’s culinary center has done for 100 years.”
