It’s 2022 and almost everyone you know probably has some form of smart device in their home. Whether it be a smart speaker, smart door locks, or smart home appliances, we all want a product that’s going to make our lives just a little bit simpler. As time goes on, everything we own is going to become “smart” which is very efficient, yet slightly terrifying at the same time.
Smart home automation has become one of the biggest and fastest-growing markets in technology, according to Otelco. We’re living in the future and all we have to do to turn on the lights in our home is ask our virtual assistant. Without even getting up from the couch, we can even use a smartphone app to turn them on from the car or anywhere else. Times sure are changing!
I never thought there would be so many “smart” products on the market when the Amazon Alexa first came out, so I was certainly excited to learn that even kitchen appliances can be smart, too. So if you are in the market to transform your kitchen into the 21st-century dream spot of virtual assistance, follow along as we learn more! You’ll see how products like the Sharp Smart Microwave Oven are the perfect fit.

What Makes a Sharp Product “Smart”?
Products that are “smart” consist of a technology within the product that gives you control through the internet, also known as IoT. Tech Target describes the process as a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals, or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network. It works by collecting, sending, and acting on data acquired from the surrounding environment. So, you know how you ask your device to play your favorite song or basically any other command? The speaker uses this ecosystem to gather the data it needs to get the job done.
For example, the Sharp Stainless Steel Smart Carousel Countertop Microwave Oven, uses an ecosystem of technology through a central point (i.e. your smartphone) to help automate tasks and create more opportunities for efficiencies in your kitchen. Functions on this Sharp microwave oven can be paired and controlled by your Amazon Alexa device and responds to over 70 voice commands for actions like defrosting meat, popping the perfect popcorn, or reheating last night’s dinner.
How Can a Sharp Smart Microwave Benefit You?
Smart microwaves can work like any traditional microwave oven, except you don’t have to press any buttons to reheat your coffee.
Smart microwave ovens have all the same functionalities as your regular one, plus way more. Simply connect to your Amazon Alexa, share a command and ta-dah! With the built-in sensor-cook technology, you can take the guesswork out of cooking. Simply say, “Alexa, defrost seafood”. With the Auto Defrost, let the microwave do the cooking (and you do the eating)!
Cup of coffee in the morning? All you have to do is put the cup in the microwave making those busy weekday mornings just a little smoother. Other smart appliances can be operated through an app on your phone like the Sharp Convection Microwave Drawer Oven that pairs with the Sharp Kitchen App found in the App Store or Google Play. Through here, you can look up recipes and get helpful tips! It’s always nice to have an extra hand when you need it most. Plus, you don’t even have to touch anything to open it, you just wave your hand in front of it!
With control of your kitchen appliances in the palm of your hand, not only do you get peace of mind but knowing you can turn it on/off at any time could conserve energy overall saving you some extra cash!
