ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA has integrated leading smart kitchen platform services Innit® and SideChef with select 2018 LG smart ovens and ranges,* ushering in the future of cooking at home today. The launch makes LG smart kitchen appliances the first in the industry to offer both SideChef and Innit compatibility.
With just a few simple steps, users can select personalized meals tailored to their individual lifestyles from a combined 18,000 meal recipes available via apps for Innit (7,000 modular meals) and SideChef (11,000 recipes). Once a recipe is selected, users can easily access step-by-step video instructions, and automatically send cooking instructions directly to the LG range or oven.
For advanced cooking automation, LG appliances work seamlessly with Innit's multi-step Expert Cooking Programs to automatically control oven temperature cycles and cooking modes ideal for each meal throughout the entire cooking process. The adaptive programing eliminates the need for manual adjustments and removes the guesswork for flawless execution every time.
For the everyday user, the SideChef and LG integration features powerful connectivity and automated control of LG's smart appliances. As a part of SideChef's signature advanced cooking guidance, users can now easily connect the app to their LG appliances and automatically trigger cook time, temperature and cooking mode instructions to be sent to their appliances while they continue to plan, prep and create the perfect meal.
The new service integrations are made possible by LG's Open Partnership, Open Platform, and Open Connectivity strategy that enables LG to work with a wide assortment of service partners to deliver consumers the best smart home experience that meets individual lifestyles.
