A new partnership between appliance company GE and the Drop Recipes Apple iOS App will let customers find recipes on their smartphone and send commands to their oven to cook their dish of choice.
For example, if you see a roast chicken recipe in the app that calls for you to preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, you can send that temperature setting straight to your oven, which will then start to preheat.
Drop has also announced that its connected ovens will also work with the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm while GE has also created a skill for the Amazon Alexa virtual assistant to bring voice controls to some of its ovens.
Drop stepped into smart kitchen technology back in 2014 with its smart kitchen scale, which connects to an iOS app which guides you step by step through a recipe based on the weight of ingredients.
In 2015, Drop provided the software for Bosch’s European line of Series 8 ovens that adjust the oven’s cook times, temperature and humidity levels via Wi-Fi.
