AEG presents the first steam oven with integrated camera



AEG, one of the Electrolux Group’s strategic brands, will soon introduce on the market a connected steam oven with the first ever integrated camera, giving consumers the tool to master cooking through their mobile devices. This futuristic solution, that combines two of the most common passions of our times – kitchen and connectivity – will be available in most European markets from April 2016. There will also be a version under the Electrolux brand from September 2016. AEG ProCombi Plus Smart oven (this is the name of the product) is equipped with the CookView camera; a camera that provides a live feed directly from the oven to a mobile device (iOS or Android). Through the mobile application and WiFi access, the camera gives consumers an overview of the food in the oven, even when not in the kitchen. With the My AEG app, consumers can start the cooking process through a mobile device and also respond instantly, changing temperature and humidity level or switching function, with a simple touch or swipe on the smartphone or iPad. Users can choose from hundreds of professional recipes in the app database. Notifications alert consumers as to when to get actively involved in the cooking process.
