GE Appliances launched wall ovens have been designed to optimize their True European Convection with Direct Air--and to be controllable form a smartphone.
The convection ability is enhanced with vents at the top of the oven cavity, which is an industry first in full-size ovens. This focuses the air onto the food, and s intended for increased air flow and cooking performance.
The convection system distributes heated air from two sources--the top and back wall of the oven, depending on selected cooking mode.
Unlike most convection systems, oven fans have the ability tio reverse in direction and operate at multiple speeds.
The new ovens are equipped with GE's Brillion networking technology and Wi-Fi access, which means they are controllable by consumers remotely using a free iPhone or Android app.
Using the app, consumers can:
* set the timer
* change the temperature or cooking function
* check cooking status
The current feature allows control via mobile app from within the home or yard, and a remote option will be available later.
GE said the new wall ovens fit in 75% of existing wall oven cutouts already in consumers' homes, making it an ideal appliances for replacement or remodeling.
The new wall ovens are assembled in Lafayette, GA, and are available currently at suggested retail prices ranging from $999 to $3,599.
