BENTON HARBOR, Mich., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Jenn-Air connected wall oven, already an advanced high-end appliance, now offers even more functionality thanks to Jenn-Air's new integration with the Nest Learning Thermostat.
If the Jenn-Air connected wall oven is left on when Nest senses that everyone is away, Nest can send a signal to Jenn-Air. Users are then alerted through the Jenn-Air wall oven app, enabling them to turn the oven off remotely.* A second function allows the app user to create rules for automatically modifying the Nest Thermostat's settings when the oven reaches a certain temperature, ensuring the kitchen is not too hot when cooking and entertaining.
The wall oven app, available for iOS and Android devices**, also allows users to check the status of oven cycles, receive notifications when preheat and cooking cycles are complete, and control oven settings remotely. Current owners of the Jenn-Air connected wall oven will receive a notification to update the app to the newest version, which includes the added Nest functionality.
"By working with Nest, we can add peace of mind and comfort to a long list of the connected wall oven's capabilities and performance features," said Brian Maynard, director of marketing for Jenn-Air. "The combination of a dedicated, fully featured app and Nest intelligence takes our powerful connected wall oven to a whole new level of innovation."
Another wall oven feature accessible via the app is the Jenn-Air® Culinary Center, an interactive, image-driven technology that uses the oven's advanced cooking system, a series of precise algorithms, and chef-tested cooking programs to give cooks the ultimate control in achieving desired results. The Culinary Center provides guidance for more than 30 food options and considers such factors as food category, food type, desired doneness and type of cookware or bakeware used.
Color images illustrating doneness levels are combined with exclusive visuals showing how and where to insert the temperature probe for a variety of dishes. The app also taps the Jenn-Air brand's "My Creations" function, which allows users to seamlessly combine up to three cooking modes and save the settings for favorite recipes.
"Utilizing the My Creations function allows cooks to get consistent results on finished dishes time after time," notes Maynard. "It also allows anyone in the household to get dinner started and not worry about setting cooking times and methods."
In addition to generous oven capacity, Jenn-Air connected wall ovens feature a vertical dual-fan convection system, a 7-inch full color touch-anywhere LCD display and soft auto-close doors. Available in single, double and microwave/wall oven combination configurations, all with flush-to-cabinet design, the wall ovens are priced at $3,599 to $5,199.
