Many Americans spend most of their time in the kitchen. That is no surprise then that lately, that the home automation market has started to concentrate on kitchen appliances. Smart ovens were only a matter of timing.

Which is a good thing. Afterall, in this modern age, we do not want to be a slave to the very appliances that are supposed to make life easier. With Bluetooth technology, smart hubs, and other advancements, they should work for us.

New smart ovens can preset cooking times and temperatures so everything comes out of the oven at the same time. Imagine being able to monitor cooking progress from any room in the house through your wi-fi? This is not science fiction, this is now.

And just in time for this approaching holiday season, we are going to showcase five smart ovens that can trim your turkey and deck your halls.

Samsung Flex-Duo Gas

Not too many consumers expect to see a gas range stove in the smart ovens category; however, Samsung managed to do just that. With many features that allows you to control your cooking times and temperatures remotely, this will be a smart investment for anyone looking to tech up their kitchen.

It doesn’t hurt that gas is cheaper than electric, locking in years of savings.

Here are some of this smart oven’s features:

  • Flex-Duo™ with Dual Door and removable Smart Divider features two independent temperature controls and convection systems cooks multiple dishes simultaneously
  • Blue LED illuminated knobs visually lets you know if your cooktop is on
  • Wi-Fi connectivity lets you remotely monitor your cooktop and control your oven
  • Built-in timer, digital display, indicator light
  • Other features include: built-in clock, control lockout, glide + roll racks, interior light, LP convertible, oven window, smart divider, dual-door design, food temp probe, self-cleaning, 3 oven racks and lower drawer storage

One of the biggest complaints about cooking is the different cooking times and temperatures. Having to time the casserole to come out of the oven at the same time as the turkey. Or having the pies fresh out of the oven when it is time for dessert.

Until now, that meant watching the clock and staying close to the oven. If you were the designated cook, you miss out on the festivities. However, no more. Now GE has brought you an oven that works around your holiday plans, not the other way around.

Some of the features include:

  • Glass touch electronic controls for easier operation
  • Control lockout prevents unintentional or unsupervised use to promote safety
  • Self-Clean with STEAM CLEAN Option (both ovens) lets you clean your oven the way you want
  • Big View oven windows let you monitor cooking progress without opening the oven door, maintaining a consistent oven temperature
  • Both Upper and Lower ovens contain food temperature probe along with delay bake option to let you program the oven to begin cooking at a pre-set time so dinner is conveniently ready when you need it to be

It took a while to figure out what “virtual flame” technology was. But, being a Samsung product, it was apparent that it was going to be good. After all, Samsung has really taken a lead into the home automation and smart gadget market.

Smart Ovens in review

Finally, it doesn’t take a degree in rocket science to see the ways smart ovens can improve the lives of homeowners.  True, people love cooking for friends and family. However, friends and family want to see you not your back as you are stuck checking the food in the oven.

Unfortunately, smart Ovens will not cook the meal itself like Jetsons or Star Trek.

Yet.
