This 27-inch, over-the-range hood and smart display hybrid is designed to fit in the space above your range and be the center of your kitchen, if not your whole home.
The hub includes recipes and guided cooking via SideChef, but also supports streaming music and movies, video chatting, social networking, smart home controls and built-in Google Assistant smart, thanks to the GE Appliances U+ Connect platform (formerly the Haier U+ Smart Life Platform).
A forward-facing camera lets you interact with friends and family on a video chat and an overhead camera lets you snap a photo or video of your latest culinary creation. Streaming apps such as Netflix and Spotify are also included.
The GE Kitchen Hub connects with other connected GE appliances from the Café, Monogram and Profile lines, as well as a range of Haier appliances.
Perhaps the newest update to the Kitchen Hub product is the price tag. Last year at CES, the Hub was predicted to cost $600. This year, that price has doubled. The team at GE say the price range for the Kitchen Hub is now $1,199-$1,399. That's as much (or more) than many people pay for their range. We'll see if the Kitchen Hub can hold its own against smaller, more affordablecoming out in 2019.
