The folks over at Whirlpool and Yummly.com have been working together to bring us some very cool new appliances. Like this new smart countertop oven by Whirlpool Labs (WLabs). It looks like a microwave oven, but it’s really an actual oven, but one like you’ve never seen before. You’ve never had an oven like this.
WLabs™ Smart Countertop Oven
Just put the food in and it automatically recognizes it (as demonstrated in the video). Thanks to infrared technology, it knows what type of food it is, and if it’s fresh, frozen, or other. So all you have to do is choose how you want it cooked – roasted, seared, broiled, etc. Push start and the cooking algorithm does the rest. It should come out perfect every time thanks to this process.
There are 11 different cooking technologies available in this oven. If you choose manual cooking mode, the menu shows you all of the ways that it can heat up your food: Bake, broil, toast, proof, dehydrate, air-fry and more. For meats it uses a thermometer to make sure it is perfectly done to your desired temperature.
Whirlpool is taking pre-orders right now for an initial limited launch. It will cost you $799 and they should ship in early April.
Whirlpool Smart Range
The company also showed off their new smart-range which uses the same sort of cooking methodologies. It has a handy screen that guides you through the cooking process. It can convert the instructions on a frozen pizza for example to eliminate the preheating process with “frozen bake” technology. It’s available right now. This will make your cooking more streamlined.
