LG, Google, and Innit partner for Signature Kitchen Suite

The kitchen continues to get smarter.

LG Electronics (LG), Google, and Innit have announced a joint smart kitchen solution, enabling hand-free voice control.

The Signature Kitchen Suite ovens and ranges offer step-by-step guided cooking instructions and automated expert cook programs. The new offering was unveiled at IFA 2018 in Berlin.

“Signature Kitchen Suite helps home chefs achieve amazing results by staying true to food,” said Alice Ryu, head of Smart Solution Business of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company. “When we respect the food at every level, we can create incredible experiences. Our joint solution with Google and Innit is wholly aligned with this approach.”

A demo at IFA 2018 showed how consumers can answer the everyday question of “What’s for dinner?” with personalized meal suggestions. Home chefs can access helpful how-to videos hands-free, making it easy to cook new foods. Innit works with kitchen appliances, including the Signature Kitchen Suite, to deliver cooking programs that are orchestrated and tailored to each meal.

“In the past, consumers may have had to open up six or seven apps to get the help they need cooking, including nutrition information, recipes, shopping lists, how-to videos, and remote control apps for various devices,” said Kevin Brown, CEO and co-founder of Innit. “With LG, Google, and Innit working together, consumers can enjoy a single elegant journey that gives them the confidence and assistance to create incredible meals every day.”

Innit said it plans to launch this smart kitchen solution to consumers in Q4 2018.

Last week both GE Appliances and Electrolux announced partnerships with Google Assistant.
