BROOKLYN, N.Y., Jan. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gourmia™, a designer and manufacturer of innovative countertop kitchen appliances, is helping every cook – whether a seasoned veteran of the kitchen or a nervous novice – become a smart cook. Using the latest IoT technology, including Alexa voice commands, the new Gourmia mobile kitchen app directly links enabled company products to the user's iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. Once linked, the cook and app can join forces in making the perfect smart kitchen.
Celebrity Chef, Daniel Green (The Model Chef) will be demonstrating these Smart Kitchen Appliances at CES 2017 in booth: 17317 Central Hall January 5-6, 2017.
"Welcome to the Internet of Gourmia," exclaimed Sam Ash, Gourmia CMO. "While modern kitchen appliances are featuring more and more functions, their interface capabilities are pretty much limited to several buttons and a simple display. Our new IoT-empowered mobile kitchen app is the perfect user-interface solution for limitless number of appliances and features. The app effortlessly assists the cook in managing recipes, cooking, cooking safely, and even keeps track of every family member's food and meal preferences. Three of these tools are enabled with Alexa voice control at CES, with more to come this year."
One Cohesive App
The App from Gourmia will connect to six Gourmia devices and allow the user to control their appliances. This means users can control the temperature, turn off and on, and monitor their appliances wherever they have access to the app, may that be from the other room, their office, commuting home, etc. By using Alexa voice control, users can even speak to their appliances, giving them commands for cooking and monitoring their food.
The Gourmia mobile app is perfect for managing recipes for use with the company's smart kitchen appliances. Among other tasks, it will automatically program complicated, professional recipes into any Gourmia smart kitchen appliance, plan meals, calculate the amount of calories in a meal, and generate a grocery shopping list based on a selected recipe.
Cooking is safer with the Gourmia mobile kitchen app and connected smart appliances. The app has the ability to block usage of an appliance if there is no adult supervision present. It also can remotely monitor the connected appliances ensuring things are proceeding as planned as well as turn an appliance off, if needed for any reason.
Every family member has a say with the Gourmia mobile kitchen app. It integrates each member's preferences regarding food choices, favorite recipes, and desired meal for special events like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc.
