At its fall 2019 product event, Amazon unleashed dozens of new products and announcements for upcoming gadgets, including the Amazon Smart Oven (opens in new tab), the company's successor to 2018's AmazonBasics Microwave.
Retailing for $250, the Smart Oven is a four-in-one device, capable of performing the cooking tasks of a microwave, convection oven, food warmer, and air fryer. It works with Alexa, so users can ask their Echo or Alexa-enabled device to preheat the oven or reheat their leftovers. The Smart Oven will communicate the status of your meal to Alexa, using the smart voice assistant to notify you when your food is done. It can also scan food products from partners and many Whole Foods products to cook them in their appropriate setting. Finally, the device is part of Amazon's Certified for Humans (opens in new tab) program, which promises a struggle-free device setup, pairing, and operation.
The Amazon Smart Oven is being offered for less than half the price of the comparable June Oven (opens in new tab), a company that Amazon had invested in and advised previously through its Alexa fund (opens in new tab).
