Benefits of Amazon Alexa Enabled Microwaves

Technology is all around us and is used to make our daily lives Simply Better. If there is something that can be made “smart” in my home, I immediately run towards it. The first smart product I added to my home were lights. I was able to control when my lights went on and how bright they were with my phone or my voice. Once I realized how much easier my life became when using Smart devices, I added more to build my Smart Home. I added the Sharp Stainless Steel Smart Carousel Countertop Microwave Oven (SMC1449FS) to my kitchen and my whole cooking experience became easier! Using an Alexa Enabled Microwave has become a staple in my kitchen and I couldn’t imagine cooking without it.


What is an Alexa Enabled “Smart” Microwave?

A smart microwave can be controlled without using the display panel on the microwave. The microwave connects to your Wifi network, as well as your Alexa device. With over 70 voice commands (check them out here), you can prepare your favorite dishes in your microwave oven in no time using just your Amazon Alexa and your voice!

Benefits of Alexa Enabled Microwaves

  • Handsfree Operation: Alexa Enabled Microwaves can be controlled using just your voice! While there are still displays with keys you can press, using your voice is perfect for those who don’t want to dirty their display or are in a rush cooking. There have been countless times that I have been preparing a dish and placed it in the microwave but forgot to push start. I would be across the kitchen working on something else and have to run to the opposite side to start the microwave. This was especially annoying when I was cutting raw chicken and had it all over my fingers! I would have to use those same fingers to press the keys. I would then have to clean the display immediately after. With an Alexa Enabled Microwave, those forgetful moments have become a little easier! Instead of running over with my dirty fingers, I can say, “Alexa, microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds”, and my dish will begin cooking! Not only is my display cleaner than ever, I feel more relaxed when preparing a dish.
  • Eliminates the Guess Work: With Auto-Defrost and Sensor Cooking, you can say “Alexa, defrost meat” and it will automatically and accurately thaw your dish. There have been numerous times I went to grab what I thought was defrosted meat from my microwave oven and it was still frozen in spots! I was never sure how long I should put something in the microwave, but with the help of my Smart Microwave, I don’t need to guess anymore. Figuring out what buttons to press on a microwave oven can be confusing and a hassle, especially if you’re like me and aren’t sure what you are doing. The Alexa Enabled Microwave eliminates the struggle of a guessing game to make your kitchen experience Simply Better.
