Is New Technology Great?

JennAirWifiOven5Can you remember a time when you had to wait for the 11 o’clock news to get the sports scores? Have you ever had part of a song lyric in your head but couldn’t remember the whole song?  Or been in the grocery store and didn’t have the list of ingredients for the recipe you want to make?  Can you live without your smart phone?  With Google in your pocket, we can have a world’s worth of knowledge available anytime.  If you take your phone or tablet with you to the kitchen, you can look up recipes or cooking techniques with ease.   WolfWallOven2

I almost never reference a cookbook anymore.  Pretty soon, you may not even need to power up your phone or tablet to be a better cook.  We now have at least four brands of ovens (click on any of the pictures to go to their sites) with some pre-programmed smart cook functionality and at least four brands that are offering limited wi-fi connectivity to control or check your oven remotely.

I said “at least” because new models are being announced or rumored all the time. If you don’t cook a prime rib regularly, you may forget what temperature to set the meat probe. A smart oven has that built into it.  Just pull up the smart cook function and tell it that you want a medium rare prime rib and the oven does the rest.  Today’s most advanced ovens have settings for beef, pork, poultry, baked goods, and many more foods.

The interface is now easier to use and they have added app controlled Wi-fi connectivity.  I installed the app this morning and without touching the oven, I changed the touch screen image, turned on the oven, and set the timer.  The advantage is that you can start the pre-heat while you are at the grocery store or turn off the oven that you forgot before you left the house.
