At its fall 2019 product event, Amazon unleashed dozens of new products and announcements for upcoming gadgets, including the Amazon Smart Oven, 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 program, which promises a struggle-free device setup, pairing, and operation.
