Silicon Valley technology company Innit recently announced a collaboration with LG Electronics USA to deliver smart kitchen solutions that make everyday cooking less complicated and time-consuming for home cooks of all skill levels. At this month's CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Orlando, Florida, LG and Innit are demonstrating how Innit works with 2018 Wi-Fi connected LG smart ovens and ranges to help families plan, shop, prepare, and cook meals with more confidence.
Innit's automated cooking programs work seamlessly with LG connected ovens and ranges featuring the company's LG SmartThinQ™ technology to help at-home chefs create meals with step-by-step support – from getting personalised meal recommendations and real-time cooking guidance to automatically programming your LG oven with a customised cooking program for delicious results every time.
Starting with personalised recommendations in the Innit mobile app, consumers can customize delicious meals based on diet, allergies and dislikes. They can customise every element of the meal, including protein, starch, vegetables, and sauces, allowing them to experiment with new flavours and ingredients to match their cravings or make the most of what's in the fridge.
Once consumers design the perfect personalised meal, Innit acts as a "Culinary GPS" system with how-to videos and real-time cooking guidance that update with every meal customisation. The Innit app intelligently sequences multiple steps from several dishes simultaneously, saving time and ensuring that all components of the meal are ready at the same time. Once it's time to cook, Innit's adaptive cooking programs seamlessly send cooking instructions — including cooking temperature, mode and timing all customised to the selected dish — to LG smart appliances.
"Though technology has simplified our lives, many people still struggle with everyday cooking. Innit is excited to work with LG to help give consumers more confidence in every step of the cooking journey," said Kevin Brown, CEO and co-founder of Innit. "By combining personalised guidance, customisable meals, and deep integration with LG's industry-leading smart kitchen appliances, Innit and LG aim to help people cook and share meals at home every day."
