Back in January at CES, KitchenAid unveiled its forthcoming Smart Oven+ connected oven with powered attachment compatibility which would include grill, steamer, and baking stone accessories. These attachments are designed to connect to a powered hub at the rear of the oven with the ability to swap them in and out as required.
Now, the Smart Oven+ is available for purchase in single and double variants, with a combination oven on the way later in 2019. Featuring a full-color, glass-touch 4.5-inch LCD display, Yummly app compatibility, and voice command capability via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, users will also be able to keep tabs on their culinary creations and adjust controls via the KitchenAid app in addition to alerts and notifications.
With respect to the development of the Smart Oven+, Christy Hoskins, senior brand manager for KitchenAid said at CES that:
"Our vision for connected KitchenAid products is to give makers the tools to expand their abilities in the kitchen and unlock new cooking possibilities. We were inspired by the KitchenAid Stand Mixer – we wanted to create an appliance that would have the same versatility and multi-functionality, just as the stand mixer’s culinary center has done for 100 years. The Smart Oven+ is the realization of that vision."
If you're interested in the KitchenAid Smart Oven+ the single and double ovens can be purchased for $3,199 and $4,799 respectively. The powered grill attachment will also come included with these units while the other accessories in the range are available as optional extras.
