LG Electronics (LG) has introduced air fry and knock-on instaview technologies in its portfolio of connected ovens. The company informed that both these features are compatible with LG ThinQ app.
“Eating healthier meals with added convenience is at the heart of the new LG InstaView ThinQ Range with Air Fry. And faster cooking time with less cleaning means less time spent in the kitchen and more time for family and leisure. This is what we mean by innovation for a better life,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.
The LG home appliance and air solution company had reported its highest third-quarter sales of KRW 5.33 trillion (USD 4.46 billion) this year, increasing nearly 10 per cent from the same period last year. LG said that the performance has been strong in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Tapping twice on the oven’s glass
“With InstaView technology, tapping twice on the oven’s glass window turns on the interior oven light for easy visual monitoring of the dish as it’s cooking – no need to open the oven door, which slows down the cooking process, or fumble for the oven light button. What’s more, EasyClean and Self Clean help to maintain a cleaner oven for maximum performance. Without the use of any chemicals, EasyClean removes light food residue with the power of steam in only 10 minutes while Self Clean employs high heat to eliminate tougher splatter from the oven’s interior,” read LG’s official statement.
“The advanced range works with the LG ThinQ app so users can cook like a professional right at home with access to hundreds of thousands of recipes from smart cooking partners such as SideChef, Innit and Tovala. Sending step-by-step cooking instructions from a smartphone to the oven allows cooking mode and temperature to be set automatically for dishes that come out perfect every time,”it continued.
