Connectivity is the theme with Samsung’s premium built-in cooking appliance lineup, according to Samsung. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and smart home hub connections control a wide range of operational features. The new cooking product will be available starting in November 2016.

The Samsung built-in cooking lineup consists of wall ovens, cooktops, and range hoods, all available in stainless steel and black stainless steel finishes. The full line has Wi-Fi connectivity, enabling smartphone monitoring and control. Bluetooth connectivity between the range hoods and cooktops starts the hood fans and lights when the cooktop is on. In connected homes, the premium built-ins work with the Samsung SmartThings Hub.

Samsung’s new single and double built-in wall ovens all include steam cooking technology, LED lights in the doors, and temperature probes so you can use a smartphone to check how the dish is cooking and adjust the time or temperature, preheat the oven, or turn it off.

One of the new wall oven models is a triple oven installed in a double oven cutout — one of the compartments uses what Samsung calls Flex Duo technology so you can “cook two different dishes at different temperatures simultaneously within the same oven compartment.” With loads of additional features, the new built-in wall ovens will list from $2,200 to $4,000.

You can choose new Samsung cooktops that cook with electricity, gas, or induction, all available in 30-inch or 36-inch widths. The cooktops also sync with the matching range hoods via Bluetooth. Features of the gas cooktop versions include a high-power, professional-grade 22K burner and removable cast iron griddle and wok grates. The gas cooktops will cost from $1,200 to $1,700.

The electric cooktop built-ins, listing from $1,100 to $1,500, include a 3.3kW Rapid Boil element, a Sync Burner feature to control two burners simultaneously, and multiple warming zones.

The most expensive of the built-in cooktops, the induction cooking versions, include Virtual Flame tech which resembles a gas flame and a FlexZone that can automatically detect pot shape and size and adjust the temperature accordingly. The induction cook-tops will list for $2,100 to $2,500.

One of the coolest features of the built-in range hoods, beyond Bluetooth connectivity for the cooktops, is a dishwasher-safe metal baffle filter that draws odors and grease through the hood to improve air quality. The hoods also have LED lights and will sell for $1,100 to $1,300.

Cooking platform SideChef expands its empire with new smart kitchen partnerships
sidechef partnerships haier home connect 2019 b 1

IFA, commencing this week in Berlin, is Europe’s biggest tech show and a haven for new smart home technology, but well-established brands also get the chance to make a big splash. That’s been the case with the all-in-one home cooking platform SideChef, which is steadily integrating itself into just about every smart home cooking appliance on the planet short of old-fashioned wood stoves, and we’re not entirely sure the company couldn’t make that one backward-compatible.

Specifically, the company has already announced three major new partnerships to disseminate the SideChef brand and tools out into the world. First, SideChef is partnering with manufacturer Haier to debut a library of step-by-step recipes on its smart refrigerators within the European market. Owners of this particular line of appliances will now have access to more than 15,000 guided recipes including recommendations based on the inventory available in their fridge. (Some of us only have beer and condiments, so we’re curious to see what SideChef recommends besides Chinese takeout.)
