Alexa, pause the microwave

The Alexa skill works great. You can pause or stop the microwave, add time to your current countdown, start cooking for a specified amount of time or even activate one of the microwave's presets such as "beverage" with a voice command.

Automatic cooking

You'll see the directions on your phone and can send the first step to your machine. If you need to stir your food mid-cook, the app will send subsequent cooking times to the machine as soon as you open the door.
