What's better than a Wi-Fi-enabled pressure cooker with 13 smart programs? A Wi-Fi-enabled pressure cooker with 13 smart programs and Google Assistant support. That's right, the 'smart' version of the Instant Pot will soon offer Google Assistant integration.
Instant Brands announced the new feature at CES, which allows users to say commands like "Hey Google, set the program on my cooker to rice." The Assistant functionality doesn't appear to be live yet, and no other details were announced.
KANATA, Ontario, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Instant Brands™ Inc. - maker of the most-loved multicooker the Instant Pot® – announces a collaboration with Google. The Instant Pot Smart WiFi pressure cooker now works with the Google Assistant and will debut at CES Jan. 8-11, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This latest cooking innovation means users will now be able to cook with their Instant Pot cooker using voice commands. As an example, all they need to do is say "Hey Google, set the program on my cooker to rice" and the cooker will start the rice function.
Having to touch a phone with wet hands or food-covered hands while cooking is a pain point to many cooks. We also know it's not always convenient to run into the kitchen to change a cooker setting; parents are in the middle of doing homework with children, folding laundry, etc. The Instant Pot Smart WiFi cooker lets cooks monitor and control the Instant Pot from the Instant Pot mobile app and the added functionality with the Google Assistant lets them control and check the status of the cooker hands-free with just their voice.
"Driving innovation in the kitchen is at the forefront of what we do at Instant Brands," said Dr. Robert Wang, founder and CEO of Instant Brands Inc. "This collaboration with Google shows our commitment to make life a little easier for people, especially when it comes to mealtime."
Instant Brands is committed to continued improvement and updates to the user experience in its products and advancements. The Instant Pot Smart WiFi multicooker offers unprecedented flexibility to enhance the full user experience.
