LG had this crazy idea of letting you “see-through” a fridge which turns out to be not so crazy after all for those with money to drop. Now, the company is bringing this technology, called InstaView, to oven too. Well, kind of.
Simply by tapping twice on the oven’s glass window, turns on the interior light of the oven for easy visual monitoring of the progress within. If you ask me, it could be a totally unnecessary feature. I mean, don’t oven already have a light switch? Also, the oven’s light is always on when cooking is in progress?
Strange choice on LG part, if you ask me. It almost feel like LG is stretching it with the whole InstaView thingy. Just saying…
Anywho, the oven in question is called LG InstaView ThinQ Range with Air Fry and as the name suggests, this seemingly regular-looking oven also does Air Fry too. That, along with True Convection technology that circulates hot air at high speeds and its EasyClean and Self Clean functions are practical features than InstaView.
EasyClean removes light food residue using the power of steam in just 10 minutes while Self Clean uses high heat to eliminate stubborn splatter.
As the product name also suggests, this oven also has some form of artificial intelligence, specifically, in the area of custom care. LG’s AI service solution, known as Proactive Customer Care, will alert you of any problem and proactively offer personalized support.
In addition, by connecting to Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa smart speakers, this smart appliance can be controlled and monitored from any room in the house. Finally, it is app-enabled, offering you access to hundreds of thousands of recipes from LG’s smart cooking partners such as SideChef, Innit and Tovala.
The LG ThinQ app can send step-by-step cooking instructions from your smartphone to the oven, thereby allowing cooking mode and temperature to be set automatically for dishes.
No idea when the LG InstaView ThinQ Range with Air Fry will be available. However, it will make its debut at the CES 2020 where you will find it at LG booth (#11100) at Las Vegas Convention Center from January 7-10, 2020.
