Weber acquires June Smart Oven startup

The established grill-maker acquires its second smart cooking startup.

The Weber Connect Smart Grilling Hub works with any grill and guides you step by step.

This story is part of CES, where CNET covers the latest news on the most incredible tech coming soon.

Weber is acquiring June, a smart oven startup company, the company announced in a press release. Weber and June partnered on the Weber Connect Smart Grilling Hub, a $129 device that connects to your phone and guides you through your grilling. 

Weber's move to acquire June isn't the company's first such deal. The company also acquired iGrill back in 2016, and integrated that technology into its temperature-sensing grill tech, still on the market today. 


The third-gen June Oven is now shipping to customers who preordered last year. 


June, started in 2013, is known for its namesake smart countertop oven. The acquisition comes just as June is shipping out its third-generation smart countertop oven, with multiple cooking modes and upgraded software for better food recognition technology. 

Weber also partnered with June on the built-in smart cooking features of its SmokeFire line of wood pellet grills. 

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, but Weber representatives told CNET that Weber has acquired 100% of June, "including its proprietary software, technology, intellectual property, and the June Oven line of products and accessories." 

June will continue to operate as its own brand under the Weber-Stephen Products umbrella and that we could see new Weber Connect products powered by June as early as this year.
