KitchenAid Smart Display has a 10" display, IPX5 rating, and Yummly

After seeing Google Assistant Smart Displays from Lenovo, JBL, LG, and Google, it's now time for another big electronics maker to join the fray: KitchenAid. Wait, what? OK, see, there's a simple explanation: KitchenAid is owned by Whirlpool. No, still doesn't make sense.

The holiday sales season isn't over yet - Boxing Day deals are the last big hurrah before a promo dry spell.
