Eating technology company Innit has announced a partnership with Home Connect – to help families plan, shop, prepare and cook delicious meals. Innit will send automated cooking programs to Home Connect smart ovens and ranges, making meal preparation more enjoyable and convenient for home cooks. Home Connect allows home appliances from different brands to be controlled with a single app. The Innit app was showcased with Home Connect enabled Thermador ovens at the 2018 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), Jan. 9-11, in Orlando.
Innit's automated cooking programs include cooking temperature, mode and timing all customized to each dish being prepared – and Innit will interface with Home Connect enabled Thermador ovens, launching later this year, for delicious results every time. Innit recommends personalized meals based on diet, allergies, and preferences. Then, it allows them to customize elements of their meal, empowering them to experiment with flavors and ingredients.
"We spend so much of our lives in the kitchen, but technology has never supported us in that space," said Josh Sigel, COO of Innit. "We are excited to work with Home Connect to add smart appliance functionality to our platform. Our personalized meal recommendations and real-time cooking guidance are already using technology to help families access everyday eating, but smart oven functionality makes cooking easier and helps them love the way they eat."
Once consumers design the perfect meal, Innit's "culinary GPS" system sequences multiple steps from several dishes simultaneously – ensuring all components of the meal are finished at the same time. Innit's adaptive cooking program sends customized cooking instructions for the selected dish directly to a Home Connect enabled Thermador oven – delivering a more seamless cooking experience.
"The dynamic Home Connect ecosystem unlocks a multitude of consumer experiences in the kitchen. By partnering with Innit, we are excited to help home cooks reveal the full potential of their cooking abilities as well as enjoy the full array of features available in their connected ovens and ranges," said Christofer von Nagel, BSH Home Appliances CEO and President. "Innit's adaptive cooking programs helps empower home cooks to create delicious meals customized to their specific tastes, while simplifying the cooking process. Together, our technologies will make cooking at home more enjoyable than ever." - Business Insider
