Do you see yourself controlling your kitchen appliances from your wrists? Among the brand's many kitchen-related announcements, Whirlpool is launching Yummly 2.0, a new version of the recipe and cooking resources app that includes image recognition, meal scheduling features and an enhanced guided cooking experience when using Whirlpool connected appliances to cook. "By introducing the collaboration with the Google Assistant on Google Home in addition to our previous collaboration with Amazon, we're hoping to offer a more connected smart home ecosystem for families". Making mealtime faster and easier, consumers can also use a smartphone or tablet to get the right settings every time for frozen foods with Scan-to-Cook technology [2] or simplify multi-step meals with technology that sends all of the instructions to the oven at once.

The range will also support Apple Watch alerts, an inclusion which Whirlpool say is a first for the industry. As you follow along the app, it'll send preheating and cooking instructions (bake, broil, etc.) to the oven or microwave so everything is ready to go by the time all prep is done. 2018 is shaping up to be the year of the smart home indeed. Features subject to change.

"Bringing intuitive technology and functionality to the appliance category that helps take the friction out of household chores is chief among our goals as we innovate for the smart home", said Brett Dibkey, Whirlpool Corporation vice president, brand and strategy in North America.
