She simply advises, "I'd wait to purchase such an expensive smart gadget until it's had some time on the market and in people's homes. " That will give manufacturers like KitchenAid a chance to work out any kinks and make the product even better before you spend your money on it.
However, our Smart Home Editor Sarah Kovac notes that it could be beneficial for "a person who is busy and can't stay in the kitchen to monitor what they're baking. " And if you're worried about the size or layout of your kitchen, the appliance can also be customized and installed to fit in your existing cabinet structure.
And if you're currently in the market for a new oven (but don't need or want to pay for the smart oven), we've reviewed tons of ovens in our lab.
Just like the KitchenAid stand mixer (which our experts ranked as the best stand mixer of 2019), the Smart Oven+ comes with interchangeable attachments (a grill, a steamer, and a baking stone) so you can customize your appliance.
Purchase at your own risk, says Kovac. "This oven has a lot of bells and whistles, which means a lot of things could go wrong with an essential part of your kitchen," she clarifies. "Maybe it's great, but a bug in the app or oven itself could mean serious inconvenience.
KitchenAid recently came out with its new Smart Oven+, a wall oven that connects to your smart home so you can control all of your baking, steaming, grilling, and broiling via a mobile app.
Below are all of the cool features you'll get with a Smart Oven+ plus whether or not our experts think it's worth shelling out thousands of dollars for.
Once you connect the attachments to the power hub in the back of the oven, you'll be able to control everything via your smart home system or phone.
