Smart Kitchen – the cooking experience of tomorrow

Reading time for this article: 5 minutes

This year’s IFA trade fair will be held in its usual form for the first time since 2019, as an attendance event with participation by the public. This is the perfect occasion for BSH Hausgeräte GmbH to present innovative appliances and intelligent technologies from all product areas, and to showcase its own brands in an impressive way. The smart kitchen is at the center of this year’s IFA presentations by BSH brands, a kitchen where cooking and baking offer a new experience: effortless, comfortable, sustainable and, above all, precisely tailored to individual needs.

Matthias Ginthum, Chief Markets Officer of BSH, says: “With our devices and services, we help improve the quality of life at home for many millions of people every day. The BSH brands and the coordinated, intelligent interaction of home appliances and digital solutions make a relevant contribution in this respect. How this works in everyday life is exemplified by our new premium oven series from Bosch and Siemens, which can be individually adapted to consumers’ wishes and needs with the help of many smart, innovative functions.”

In a seamless interplay of digital solutions and smart home appliances, consumers can tailor cooking, baking and frying ever more precisely to their personal preferences. Whether in terms of culinary tastes or consumption habits, home appliances in smart kitchens not only assist in cooking and baking, but also in grocery shopping. This makes everyday life easier and more convenient, and ensures better, more sustainable results.

A first important step for the optimal, sensible use of various appliances and services a fully connected appliance portfolio. All new large BSH home appliances can be integrated into the Home Connect ecosystem and can thus also communicate with each other. Consumers still operate their home appliances in the traditional way via touchscreens and buttons, or interact with the oven, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher or cooker hood through the Home Connect app, popular voice assistants and smartwatches. 

The kitchen as a digital, intelligent ecosystem

Innovations such as an oven reflects, thanks to artificial intelligence, the user’s wishes – from tips for correct oven setting and remote control to the preferred degree of browning. The new smart kitchen Dock also supports cooking, baking and frying processes in the kitchen as a voice-first smart display. 

The smart kitchen continually improves the entire system performance. Artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) interact in various applications, so that people take on the decisive role for increasing optimization of the processes with their everyday routines in the kitchen. This creates ongoing learning loops in the ecosystem that tailor cooking and baking results precisely to consumer habits and expectations.

So how does it look like when the home appliances interact? We documented a little conversation, that you can only witness when nobody is in the kitchen:
