The kitchen's never been so smart (or so expensive)

Smart Home
[MUSIC] Smart kitchen appliances are nothing new. But manufacturers keep making them. And people largely keep on passing them up. Now, these Samsung models are some of the latest attempts at winning the shopping public over. We wanted to know if any of the smarts were more compelling than before. now, what's the point in having an oven with wi-fi? Well, for Samsung, it's all about convenience. With this oven, you can use an app to control certain oven functions. So let's say you're at work and you want a nice hot oven when you get home. You can set a pre-heat from your app which is pretty convenient when you're really, really busy. Now as cool as the WiFi oven and the app are, there's still some limitations The app gets a little finicky if you've been away from it for a while, and it's a little hard to set up. And as an oven, the Samsung unit is just okay, which is not what you'd expect for a $3,000 appliance. With the family [UNKNOWN] refrigerator you've got this 21.5 inch touch screen on the door that has apps for things like synching up your family's calendar, streaming music, even ordering groceries. You also have cameras with the thing but they're inside of the fridge. You use those to check your inventory while you're out at the grocery or here on the fridge itself for labeling when stuffs about to expire. And there are other smart fridges on the market too. GE's got one that'll make you coffee in the morning. Whirlpool's got one that works with [UNKNOWN]. LG has one that opens the door automatically when your arms are full. They all do different things because they're all sort of big expensive dart throws. Manufacturers are still trying to figure out how to get people to buy into the idea of smart refrigerators to begin with. And that's not an easy task. This one here costs $6,000. And that's the thing. There aren't any budget-friendly options available right now if you want a smart, large kitchen appliance. It's luxury, or nothing. Yeah, and they don't feel totally necessary for the smart kitchen yet either. I mean if you wanna have smart cooking assistance at your stove, or smart inventory management in In your fridge. There are devices that will work with your existing dumb appliances and get the job done. That's why we think it's a smarter idea to forego large kitchen appliances that try to do everything. And instead opt for specialized small appliances that cost a lot less. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
