CES 2020: The Future of the Smart Kitchen
Updated: Jun 24
In case you aren't following all of the latest smart appliance news, last year was a big year for Chefling. Bosch, one of the world's leading manufacturers of smart appliances, officially backed us, and we have been working closely on new innovation ever since.
Next week is CES, and Bosch and Chefling will be demonstrating our latest work together. If you're interested in checking it out, shoot us a note and we'll set up time for a demonstration.
Here is the announcement: Global home appliance leader Bosch and AI-kitchen assistant startup Chefling, Inc. will demonstrate for the first time at CES newly added inventory management technology in their connected smart kitchen solution. Expanding upon Chefling's ability to parse and send recipe commands from any recipe to smart Bosch appliances, the latest technology uses in-refrigerator image recognition to recognize newly added and removed items and automatically update inventory lists and streamline replenishment. This connection is empowered by Home Connect and can be used with any refrigerator that is equipped with a camera and is connected by Home Connect. At CES 2020, visitors will have the opportunity to see and experience the solution at Bosch's booth, #12401, located in Central Hall.
"We are excited to further deepen our strategic partnership with Chefling by offering Bosch home appliances that leverage the power of their smart kitchen assistant app to customize user experiences and take the concept of a truly connected kitchen to a new level," said Anja Prescher, director of brand marketing for Bosch home appliances. "The convenience of Chefling's integration with Bosch makes navigating the kitchen more efficient, saves customers time and money, and brings enjoyment back to the kitchen."
Chefling combines meal planning, recipe discovery, inventory management, shopping list collaboration, smart appliance control, and more, into one intuitive solution that can be controlled by voice through Alexa or through the app and learns how to be a better assistant over time. Users can already receive recipe recommendations based on what they have in their pantry, but keeping that pantry accurate can still be time consuming. With the Smart Food management solution, users simply put groceries away in the Bosch connected fridge, their inventory automatically updates within the Chefling app, and new recipe recommendations are available at the touch of a button. Once a user is ready to cook a recipe, they can send commands to smart ovens, and coffee makers. When items are removed from the fridge, the Chefling app keeps inventory up to date and provide the most relevant and convenient home cooking recommendations.
"We are creating the most comprehensive kitchen assistant to add unique experiences and value for anyone working in the kitchen. By making planning, cooking and shopping simpler and more enjoyable, we're helping improve consumers' quality of life," Chefling Co-Founder Amar Krishna adds.
