SideChef And GE Appliances Focus On Making The Smart Kitchen Mainstream

SAN FRANCISCOApril 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — SideChef, the innovative culinary platform, launches a second connected kitchen initiative with GE Appliances that now connects the SideChef app to seventy-four GE Wifi enabled ovens and ranges. This second phase of their partnership combines SideChef’s award winning collection of step-by-step recipes with GE Appliances’ Wifi Connect technology to provide a unique meal creation experience for home cooks.

After the joint development of the Kitchen Hub, SideChef and GE Appliances set out to make kitchen connectivity even more accessible. SideChef’s signature advanced cooking guidance now automatically sends cooking instructions to GE Wifi Connect devices after completing a simple one-time syncing process. SideChef’s connectivity automatically triggers cook times, temperatures, and cooking modes while the user continues to prepare the recipe. With the completion of this integration, SideChef is planning further enhancements that go beyond the kitchen into ingredient optimization, advancing the full kitchen journey.

“Our partnership with GE Appliances has yielded yet another giant leap forward in kitchen connectivity,” says SideChef CEO & Founder, Kevin Yu. “Together, we are empowering a much broader audience to have automated control of their kitchen so that connected appliances are no longer just for early adopters.”

SideChef released a new batch of recipes, upping their total smart recipe count to 15,000, a result of over 300 global content partners. In total, SideChef now integrates with one hundred one connected appliances. Deepening integrations between SideChef and GE Appliances are helping simplify cooking tasks and minimize human error, creating the ultimate home cooking experience.
