GE introduces line of Internet-enabled ranges

GE's free-standing Profile Series gas and electric range

The new Profile series of freestanding ranges from GE will allow homeowners to turn the oven on in between games of Candy Crush, among other things.

The Wi-Fi-enabled series of gas and electric ranges can be controlled remotely by the GE Brillion smartphone app.

“We’re expanding our line of connected appliances to make life easier while you’re on the go,” GE Product Manager Jonathan Sprigler said. “Consumers expect more things to be accessible through their phones, and GE is enabling them to have the control they want.”

This is the second series of appliances that GE has introduced with Wi-Fi capabilities after it rolled out its internet-enabled wall oven in 2013.

In addition to the hi-tech capabilities, the ranges also feature notification lighting that lets owners know when the oven has preheated, as well as tri-ring electric burners, a warming drawer and a built-in temperature gauge for meat. The ranges will retail for $1,599 and $2,099.
