Kitchen appliance manufacturer Gourmia showed off a whole slew of new small appliances it plans to release this year at their booth during CES 2018. And, like nearly all new products introduced at the consumer tech show this year, the new gadgets have voice control functionality baked into them—pun absolutely intended.
Through a new, free Android/iOS app by Gourmia, consumers can control their smart home appliances, or they can integrate them into their existing Google Assistant system for hands-free control of the devices.
The new line of voice-controllable devices includes six new products unveiled at CES. Here’s a brief rundown on each of them, provided by Gourmia:
- Kitchen Machine. The Gourmia GKM9000 integrates a color touchscreen, WiFi, and Bluetooth, a integrated scale for accurate ingredient portioning, blades for stirring, chopping, and whipping, and the power and accuracy to cook, bake, steam, sauté, sous vide, grind, mix, puree, knead, and more. It comes with 100 pre-loaded recipes and plenty of storage to add personal favorites. It handles virtually every part of the process from prep to cooking. It can replace a food processor, stove, and countertop cooking appliances, making it the only culinary device needed.
- Smart Kitchen Pour Over Coffee Maker. This WiFi enabled device mimics a real barista’s pour over to ensure a perfect and even brew. Compatible with both Google Home and Amazon Alexa, the Pour Over Coffee Maker has precision temperature control and a built in scale that’s adjustable based on water to coffee ratios, ensuring the user gets expert-level control over the taste of their coffee.
- Air Fryer with Ready-View Camera. This product combines the latest cooking technologies with the power of remote viewing to make it simpler to eat healthy. Air fry and halogen technologies allow foods to fry to a perfect crisp without a drop of oil. It can do over 20 cooking styles, including fry, bake, roast, grill, rotisserie, and even popcorn. With the built-in camera, users can watch their food cook from a smartphone or computer.
- Electric Smart Pot Pressure Cooker. The versatile Gourmia electronic Smart Pot Pressure Cooker comes with 13 functions including cooking, sautéing, and steaming, and is perfect for preparing meat, chicken, fish, rice, vegetables, beans, soups, yogurt, desserts, and more. It can reduce cooking time by up to 70 percent. The unit features 1200 watts of power, auto-locking lid, automatic pressure control, non-stick inner liner, and a stainless-steel exterior.
- Sous Vide & Multi Cooker. The Gourmia 11-in-1 Sous Vide & Multi Cooker features 11 modes including sous vide, roast, bake, sauté, steam, and slow cook. The device is perfect for preparing meat, chicken, fish, rice, vegetables, beans, soups, porridge, yogurt, and desserts. It features 1500 watts of power, a large 6.5-quart nonstick aluminum pot to spread heat evenly, and a tempered-glass lid to check on food without releasing heat.
- Smart Coffee Maker. The Gourmia Smart Coffee Maker has a built-in bean grinder so every brew uses fresh grinds. On the user's command, the machine grinds the beans to perfection, brings the water to the perfect temperature, and brews the coffee exactly as desired. It features 1050 watts of power, a large capacity 42.6-ounce glass carafe, stainless-steel design, delay timer, easy-to-read display, and a dishwasher-safe grinding chamber. It will brew up to ten cups.
Gourmia hosted celebrity chef Cat Cora—the first-ever female to earn the distinction of being a Food Network Iron Chef—at their booth throughout CES. Cora demoed several of Gourmia’s products during in-booth cooking sessions. Unlike other tech demos that happen with constant glitches at CES, the Gourmia demos went off without a hitch and showed the potential of a kitchen with smart, connected appliances.
