Crockpot Enables Voice-Based Cooking

Crockpot has launched an Alexa-compatible programmable slow cooker with voice controls.

"Set it and forget it has always been a benefit of slow cooking, and we want to continue to find ways for consumers to worry less about dinner time," said Tim Anderson, director of brand development at Crockpot, in a statement. "By adding Amazon's technology to our slow cooker, you can now use your voice or the Alexa app to easily start, stop, program, or check the status of your meal from anywhere. It doesn't get more convenient than that."

Cooks can use their voices to start or stop the slow cooker, program cook-times, heat settings, and check the status of meals from anywhere. This programmable slow cooker works with Alexa-enabled devices like Amazon Echo or Echo Show, or through the free Amazon Alexa app on phones or tablets.
