KitchenAid Celebrates 100 Years, Entry into Smart Home Category at NAHB International Builders’ Show

KitchenAid unveils its first-ever connected oven and limited edition products for building industry

 

KitchenAid enters its centennial year by making its smart home debut with its innovative KitchenAid® Smart Oven+ with Powered Attachments. The oven opens up new culinary possibilities for home cooks to experiment and explore.

Winner of a Consumer Electronics Show (CES®) Innovation Award in the Smart Home product category, the Smart Oven+ features three interchangeable, oven-powered attachments that expand the creative horizons of a wall oven to include grilling, baking and steaming within one appliance. Grill ships with oven. Connect, register or call to get baking stone and steamer by mail at no additional cost.*

 

 

The Smart Oven+ will be available in three models – single, double and combination ovens – and also feature:

  • Even-Heat™ True Convection Oven: The Smart Oven+ can also bake a meal without attachments. The Even-Heat™ True Convection Oven promotes better circulation and air flow, providing consistent heating and cooking.
  • LCD Display: A 4.5-inch, full-color, glass-touch LCD display is compatible with mobile devices and allows users to easily view and select from a variety of capabilities, giving users control of cooking modes.
  • KitchenAid™ App: With the mobile app, users can view the system's status, direct a variety of operations remotely and receive notifications and alerts. Download the Yummly® app and search ""KitchenAid"" to find 90 attachment-ready recipes that will open up even more possibilities for home cooks to create.**
  • Voice Commands: Through a Google Assistant or an Alexa-enabled device, users can adjust Smart Oven+ settings remotely with simple commands.***

 

“KitchenAid continues to bring inspiration through product innovation and brand strategy to both new and existing customers,” noted Kelly Safis, Whirlpool Corporation general manager of Contract Builder Sales. “We look forward to delivering building industry professionals new innovations from KitchenAid that will inspire homeowners for another century.”
