Some people really hate cooking. Of course, some hate it because they just can’t do it. However, GE is putting a little high-tech helper into its Profile Series, which just may improve your culinary skills.
GE has put Wi-Fi into its new freestanding Profile Series of gas and electric ranges. This is the company’s second connected product, following the wall oven that GE started shipping last year. Of course, not everyone has the space for a wall oven, so this option will put more connected kitchens into more homes.
And that’s a good thing. Because we’re guessing that many of you have left the house, wondering whether or not the oven was left on. Now, there’s an app for that—the GE Brillion app. It allows users to turn the oven off remotely, as well as turn it back on for preheating purposes. It also has timers, the ability to check the cooking status, and more.
Other features include a warming drawer, a meat probe, tri-ring burners, notification lighting, and a self-cleaning roller rack. There’s also something called “True European Convection with Precise Air” on the electric models. This perk boasts increased air coverage on food and better overall cooking.
GE wil start shipping the new Profile Series this September. The PB930 is priced at $1,599, with the PGB940 and the P2B940 selling for $2,099 each. Both the gas and electric models are available in black, white and stainless finishes.
