Smart home appliances have been in the priority list of every single consumer electronics maker for quite some time now. We’ve had smart lighting, smart TVs, smart security appliances and now smart kitchen appliances are also gaining traction. Amazon, which sells its own lineup of smart home solutions like Echo speakers and Kindle TV sticks, has put its own footprint in this space by launching a smart microwave oven. They’re calling it Amazon Smart Oven, and it with an Echo dot smart speaker completely free of cost.
The oven we’re talking about is a 4-in-1 microwave oven, and it was announced back in September. Its design is really stylish, as you can see in the image. It has got a convection oven, a food warmer, an air fryer and 30 other presets that you can use for various purposes. It can also sense the temperature of food and let you know when the food is ready as per your needs, thanks to in-built Alexa support. There’s also a ‘Scan to Cook’ feature in it, which can automatically determine the ideal temperature for food items purchased from Amazon.
The oven works when paired with an Echo smart speaker. And that’s why an Echo dot is being given completely free of cost with it. You can also opt-out of the free Echo dot offer, but that doesn’t make any difference to the price so there is no sense in doing so. You can order it from Amazon for $250. If you purchase it, share your experience in the comments section below. And even if you don’t purchase it, share why would you want to avoid it so others can get a better idea of how good of a choice it is.
