Home automation systems bring complete management and control to your fingertips. Smart appliances connect to your iPad through Wi-Fi; a dedicated app links lighting, home theater systems, HVAC, doors, windows, etc. to your touchscreen. This allows you to have remote access to various parts of your smart home. Such a futuristic reality remains incomplete without mentioning the heart and beat of every home: its kitchen. With innovative features from Amazon Alexa and Google Home, people seem to have their finger on the pulse to follow every new beat.
The smart home revolution has allowed appliances such as smart refrigerators, blenders, coffee makers, ovens, and stoves to become connected. From automated pantry levels and expiry date alerts to streaming recipes on the smart stove, the possibilities have become endless to make our lives simpler, safer, and easier. Technologies for such user interfaces within induction cooktops have arrived, and we are excited to share some of the possibilities that come with the new generation of appliance smart stoves. Once the existing technology come together, people will be able to navigate through recipes and tutorials on their cooktops. In this blog, we will discuss the highlights of current smart stove appliances.
Samsung Smart Ranges
Samsung’s smart ranges enable Wi-Fi connectivity to monitor cooking temperatures and duration remotely from your touchscreen devices. Induction cooktops and simulated gas stove fire create a brilliant virtual flame. You can manage the oven’s baking environment via the SmartThings app. FlexDuo Smart Divider creates two individual temperatures within the same oven to bake different recipes at their respective heat levels, time, and power. A special hinged Dual Door design provides access to just the top oven rack if you do not want to use the whole oven. Samsung smart stoves have a slide-in structure that aligns with the cabinetry for seamless precision. The stainless-steel finishing is resistant to fingerprints, so the appliance always looks flawless in its futuristic charm.
Samsung Gas Ranges
Samsung’s gas ranges come in several models under the category of “Wi-Fi connectivity”. They are equipped with glass touchscreen controls. You can manage the cooktop and oven through the app and remain notified via smart, real-time alerts. For example, the app lets you see which of the 5 gas burners are on and off, how much time has elapsed or is left for the cake to bake, and what your current temperature settings are. You get to change all values from your app instead of walking to the smart stove. The cooking and baking cycles can also be canceled remotely so that the appliance turns off. The oven also has a self-cleaning mode.
Samsung Electric Smart Stoves
There are several versions of Samsung’s electric stoves that are compatible with Wi-Fi connect devices. They all feature an innovative combination of induction cooktops with simulated gas flames, allowing LED lights to reflect on the pans for a mesmerizing Virtual Flame effect. Using the app, you can monitor the cooktop, preheat the oven, and select from a range of auto-cook options.
Samsung Dual-Fuel Smart Stoves
The dual-fuel smart stoves automatically connect to the exhaust ventilation hood via Bluetooth when the cooktop is switched on. This functionality is only used for compatible Samsung hoods that pair with corresponding smart stoves. Wi-Fi connectivity also helps you start, stop, and adjust the oven’s baking cycles. The future is right here, right now with such pioneering solutions that push the edges of our human mind for more and more creativity.
LG Smart Stoves
Ranges and ovens from LG are also available as gas, electric, and dual-fuel appliances. There are several versions for slide-in and freestanding smart stoves to suit your modern kitchen. They feature ovens with a large capacity and have an overall sleek, print-proof exterior enhanced by a matte finishing. LG’s ProBake Convection and infrared heating create ideal cooking atmospheres for various cuisines. An automatic EasyClean option simplifies the oven maintenance within just 10 minutes. Metal touch-controls, scratch-resistant knobs, and robust handles add to the ergonomic structure of these smart stoves. All the designs that connect to Wi-Fi offer a bird’s eye view of cooking processes through the LG SmartThinQ app. You can manage the smart oven remotely and preheat it, check the remaining time, and switch it off. Apart from streamlining your cooking stages from the touchscreen, you can interact with the app using voice commands as it is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, including recipe management apps like SideChef and Innit. It is like waving a magic wand and saying a few spells to get the work done on time.
GE Appliance Smart Stoves
Gas and electric ranges and induction cooktops from GE Appliances are designed to be Wi-Fi compatible to support the GE Appliances Kitchen app. You can individually control the upper and lower oven, preheat either compartment, and adjust the timer from your smartphone. Self-clean features are included in the ovens. The app collaborates with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Innit, IFTTT, and DiGiorno to centralize your cooking tasks and manage recipes. GE’s smart suite of appliances has a dedicated voice-control assistant known as Geneva, much like Alexa. You can use voice interaction to tell Geneva to preheat the smart oven, notify you of the remaining time, and turn the oven off once the meal is ready. Voice controls save time when you are already multitasking. Geneva also works with Alexa for unique flexibility across GE’s Wi-Fi connect stoves, routing your voice controls to synchronize the cooking stages.
Whirlpool Appliance Smart Stoves
Whirlpool cooking ranges connect to the Whirlpool app to supervise the current status and choose a Keep Warm setting to let your meals stay fresh for serving. Keep Warm lets the range burn at low heat until the pre-set duration is completed. These Wi-Fi-connected smart stoves are compatible with voice commands through Alexa or Google Assistant to streamline your day’s menu. Whirlpool’s smart slide-in ranges and ovens have a touchscreen panel that recognizes your favorite cooking options, smartly suggesting your go-to pizza routine on a Friday night. Yummly Guided Cooking brings you recipe tutorials for prepping stages, configures the oven automatically for that recipe when you click on “Start oven”, and notifies you once the meal is ready. Furthermore, a Scan-to-Cook feature is a great innovation from which you can simply scan the barcode of frozen food packages, follow the app’s guides, and start the oven. Such recommendations and automated controls come in handy for amateur cooks who are on their way to a self-made culinary achievement. Whirlpool’s smart stove appliances are available in elegant shades of sunset bronze, black stainless, and stainless steel.
