Pizza cooking in a smart range

What does a smart oven do?

Many smart ovens let you remotely set the oven temperature, select settings and monitor cooking progress. You may also receive alerts when a meal is done or when your oven needs maintenance. Some smart ovens can also adapt to the way you cook, giving you instant access to the settings you use most. For example, Whirlpool® Smart Ranges and Wall Ovens help you keep dinner on your schedule by offering multiple ways to multitask:

Hand setting oven temp on smartphone

1. Control your smart oven by app

Now you can control your range right from your phone. The Whirlpool® App makes it easy to manage mealtime from outside the kitchen any time you want to preheat your oven from another room or delay dinnertime after the timer goes off. App features include:

  • Keep Warm Setting: When you’re in the middle of checking homework, this setting delivers low heat to keep food warm in the oven until you’re ready to eat.

  • Scan-to-Cook Technology: Start frozen meal prep from your phone and get the right settings every time — and on your schedule — no matter whose turn it is to make dinner.
  • Multi-Step Cooking: Send multiple cooking instructions to the oven at once from your phone.1 The temperature automatically adjusts so you don’t have to monitor the meal, and your world-famous lasagna your in-laws have been craving will taste exactly as it should.
  • Automatic Updates: Whirlpool® Smart Ranges and Wall Ovens get smarter over time with new cycles and Automatic Feature Updates.1 Receive alerts when a new cycle or setting, like Air Fry, is available so you can stay on top of all your mealtime options.

Voice-enabled assistants

2. Control your smart oven by voice-enabled device

You don’t even have to touch your oven to control it; instead, it works with both the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa so you can use simple voice commands to keep up no matter what you’ve got on your hands.1 Now, when you’re up to your elbows in pizza dough and marinara sauce with your flour-dusted sous chef, you can simply ask your voice-enabled device to preheat the oven to 425°.

You can also set and adjust cooking modes and temperature, start oven and kitchen timers, turn on the oven light and get range and cooking status information — just by asking.

3. Control your smart oven by touchscreen

This is an oven that gets to know you. The innovative touchscreen actually learns and adapts to the way you cook, giving you instant access to the settings you use most — morning, noon and night.

The more you use it, the better it will recognize frequently used settings and prompt you to save them as a favorite, like the breakfast casserole you make every Sunday or their daily snack of chicken tenders. It’s 6:30 on a Friday night? The touchscreen will automatically suggest your pizza favorite. And you can feed the hungry little league team even faster.

Whirlpool and Yummly partnership

4. Get personalized help with meal prep
