Miele just presented a number of AI cooking assist functionalities to be integrated to the Miele Smart Home App. Working together with Miele's premium smart ovens, they introduce an all-new digital cooking experience.
Smart Food ID
Miele's premium Generation 7000 in-wall ovens come with an internal camera to provide images to the users via the Miele@mobile App. It allows users to keep an eye on the food that they are cooking and to make adjustments on the go remotely.
With the new Smart Food ID feature, the oven camera is able to identify the food inside the oven. Once the user confirms that the recognition is correct, the oven is able to proceed with its automatic cooking program. It saves the user from having to adjust each setting every time a new dish is to be cooked.
Currently able to identify over 20 dishes, Smart Food ID will be updated with new recipes later on.
Smart Browning Control
For pizza lovers, Miele has prepared the Smart Browning Control function: The user selects whether the pizza is frozen or fresh, and the oven uses its internal camera to monitor the cooking process. The camera identifies when the pizza is done by checking the browning of its crust.
It can also be combined with TasteControl, which opens the oven door slightly upon finish to prevent the dish from drying out.
Another part of Miele's AI effort is the CookAssist feature for its premium induction hob lineup. As covered in our previous article, this app-based feature guides the user to cook built-in recipes while taking care of the temperature control.
Using AI, the ideal temperature for the respective dish is not simply measured at the base of the pan but calculated using Miele's machine learning algorithm.
Smart Food ID and Smart Browning Control will be tested in Denmark from the end of 2020, while CookAssist is available now.
Miele is transforming its Miele@mobile App, which has over a decade of history under its belt, to the Miele Smart Home App. It is redesigned from the ground up to work with all Miele networked appliances.
