This Smart Oven Can Cook a 12-Pound Turkey—and Prepare Your Bacon 64 Different Ways
Say goodbye to soggy microwaved pizza. As spotted by Engadget, appliance company June just launched a new smart oven that comes with 100 preset cooking programs, including—thanks to popular demand—leftover pizza.
Perfect for those of us who aren't confident in our kitchen skills, the June oven takes the guesswork out of cooking. When you place food inside, the oven uses its HD camera to scan the item and determine what type of food it is. Use the 5-inch touchscreen to confirm that what you're cooking is, say, a steak, then insert a probe thermometer and select your preferred level of doneness. The oven switches between roast, broil, and bake settings, but you won’t have to do any of the work.
The oven's function can be converted into an air fryer, dehydrator, slow cooker, broiler, toaster, or warming drawer. It’s also highly tailored to individual preferences. Bacon, for instance, can be cooked 64 different ways in a June oven. Plus, it's large enough to hold a 12-inch pizza or a 12-pound turkey, so you're all set for both Super Bowl parties and Thanksgiving dinner.
Priced at $599, this version is $900 cheaper than the company's first smart oven, which launched two years ago and has since been discontinued. The company has had some time to learn what customers liked and didn't like about the June prototype, and they said the new version is "smarter" and cooks faster.
The oven pairs with Alexa-powered devices, and June's companion app lets users leave the kitchen and watch their food being cooked via their phones. The oven is now available to order on June's website.
