Gorenje iChef oven with finger-friendly touchscreen


Company produced kitchen appliances continue to make glad of consumers. We already wrote about smart kitchen from LG and Kenmore, smart fridge from Samsung or Electrolux. Now it’s time for iChef oven by Gorenje. The oven sports large finger-friendly touchscreen to display a cooking program menu from SIMPLEbake, AUTObake, MYbake, EXTRA and PRObake to STEPbake. Like in digital camera you can choose fully automated mode, adjust it a bit or set your own cooking parameters. Unfortunately there is no possibility to control the iChef or receive notifications about cooking progress using smartphone like it’s done in LG Thinq. But maybe Gorenje will add that feature before the iChef will be available in Europe this spring.

iPhone + Gorenje = iKitchen

iPhone is very popular in home automation area. Many well-known smarthome producers released their interfaces for Apple’s smartphone – Crestron, mControl, Lagotek, SpeakerCraft etc. Slovenian manufacturer Gorenje also found iPhone attractive and announced a new line of its home appliance controlled via TCP/IP. For all iPhone/iPod Touch owners the company offers a nice looking web interface. So, consumers will be able to set cooking times or laundry cycles from anywhere. What you need is an Internet connection, iPhone and WiFi hotspot.

Sure, the Gorenje web interface will work with any device with web browser – PC, Internet tablet or smartphone. If you don’t have iPhone you can use them instead.
