AEG ProCombi Plus Smart Oven
In the connected kitchen, smart appliances big and small are getting online and operable via our mobile devices, but none quite match this camera-toting cooker for forward-thinking convenience. In addition to an Ethernet cable, for accessing firmware updates from the web, the AEG ProCombi Plus has an inbuilt camera so you can watch your dinner cook on your phone from the next room, or, for the hell of it, the next country. This cooker can send updates, alerts and selfies to the MyAEG app, and of course, let you share your food with your friends – electronically that is.
What is in all other respects, a regular built-in steam oven, uses its integrated CookView camera to send a live feed to any iOS/Android device. This removes a lot of the guesswork involved in cooking larger lumps of red meat, or poultry, but the MyAEG app also lets you adjust the heat remotely. And while you wait you can browse professional recipes, or just scoff at the shared efforts of other connected chefs via the Social Feed section. The ProCombi Plus Smart Oven goes on sale in the UK, April 2016. Diet until then.
