Miele is introducing CookAssist smart cooking assistance system that is compatible with the company's flagship built-in induction hobs, the KM 7000 Series, debuted two years ago and came on the market last year. It is a new function in the Miele@mobile app.
How Does It Work?
From a smartphone or tablet, CookAssist provides the user with step-by-step instructions and helpful photos to guide them through the entire frying process. The intelligent TempControl sensor in the hob detects the temperature of the cookware and automatically keeps the pan at the right temperature, so there’s no longer any need to make constant adjustments or worry about burning the food.
More specifically, once the temperature required to start cooking has been reached, the user is prompted to place the food in the pan. The app then provides a helping hand through every stage of the recipe. For example, it tells the user when it is the right time to turn the salmon or steak. Apart from induction cookware, no special accessories are required.
Currently, CookAssist has 15 recipes and more are being developed.
Additional Perks of KM 7000 Series Induction Hobs
Miele induction hobs with TempControl also come with a simmer setting so that dishes can continue to be cooked evenly at low heat. Additionally, the “Keeping warm plus” function which gently cooks food or keeps it warm.
Every TempControl hob has a PowerFlex cooking area which can be adapted to suit every cooking situation. Two individual zones can be combined either to form an extended rectangular zone or a large round cooking zone. The powerful TwinBooster with a maximum output of 7.3 kW provides additional speed as and when required.
Like all Miele's network-enabled hobs, these models boast the Con@ctivity function with which the hob automatically controls Miele's network-enabled cooker hood, maintaining a pleasant room climate.
