New Ovens Respond to Voice Commands

Owners of Jenn-Air Connected Wall Ovens can use their voices, along with Jenn-Air's existing IOS and Android wall oven apps, to control many essential functions. The new voice command feature, enabled by Amazon's Alexa voice assistant, can be activated using the Jenn-Air Skill, one of thousands available at the Alexa Skills Store.

Simple voice commands have been created for everything from preheating and setting timers to changing temperatures and cooking modes.

Jenn-Air Connected Wall Ovens are already largely controllable using the IOS and Android mobile apps, whether for checking doneness in another room of the home or preheating from across town at the supermarket. They also offer compatibility with Nest thermostats.

"These luxury wall ovens offer a unique combination of easily upgradeable connected features," said Jenn-Air's marketing director, Brian Maynard, in a statement. "With Nest compatibility, the oven's algorithm-enabled Culinary Center, and voice commands powered by Alexa, we're getting closer to achieving frictionless, barrier-free cooking and entertaining."

Additional connected appliances in Jenn-Air's portfolio include a connected refrigerator, now available, and a dishwasher scheduled for availability this fall.
