Sharp Home Electronics Company of America (SHCA) launched its first smart countertop microwave ovens. Two new countertop microwave ovens that feature hands-free cooking with Alexa.
“At Sharp, we remain committed to our brand promise of Simply Better Living. We create products that are simple to use, better than the competition, and support your choice to live a healthier lifestyle,” said Peter Weedfald, Senior Vice President of SHCA. “We are proud to build on our decades of experience designing innovative cooking appliances. Now you can just say “Alexa, microwave fresh vegetables” for a hands-free way to select the Fresh Vegetables preset on your Sharp Smart Countertop Microwave Oven.”
“Using the Alexa app or an Alexa-enabled device, you can now use your voice to start or stop the microwave, add time to the current cooking cycle, or even cook at a specific power level to make operating your Sharp Smart Countertop Microwave Oven simpler,” said Jim Sanduski, President of SHCA.
“For example, just say, ‘Alexa, defrost 2 lbs. of meat,’ and Alexa will start defrosting at the appropriate time and power settings. Plus, on the family-sized SMC1449FS, discover more preset cooking items for foods that do not appear on the control panel like broccoli, brussel sprouts, or chicken wings using just your voice. Our wide selection of Alexa commands takes the guesswork out of cooking.”
