We're of the opinion that good technology can make cooking easier, better, and more fun. Who could forget the Food-a-rac-a-cyle from the Jetsons or the Back to the Future Hydrator? And it's not just on television or in the movies. Real-life technology can help you cook the way you've always wanted to cook, every time you pull out your chef's knife and cutting board (and we've progressed way past the Makin' Bacon).
Our latest and greatest tech find? The June Intelligent Oven—the smartest countertop oven we've ever seen. Want to see for yourself? June is demo-ing their cooking wonder at a pop up in the Village at Corte Madera in Marin County—and they invited us along to show off some of our favorite kitchen and home goods for you to shop!
While you ooh and aah over our handmade home decor and kitchen helpers galore, you'll get a chance to see the June oven in action. This brilliant technology (we hear it got a 1600 on its SATs) takes the guesswork (i.e. the anxious sweating) out of cooking. It's fully-loaded with a camera and LED technology, so it can detect what's inside the oven—ensuring a roast, toast, broil, or bake to perfection. It's is even connected to an app on your smartphone that lets you peek at the action and gives you notifications—okay, "beeboops!"—at various points in the cooking time.
Never again will you hope for medium-rare and get medium-well instead. And never again will you slice into your impeccably crispy-skinned chicken, weeping its precious juices, to determine whether it's opaque all the way through. Now that's one smart
cookie oven (that coincidentally makes cookies).
You'll be able to pre-order a June Intelligent Oven right at the pop up—plus shop any of our products in the showroom that we'll ship to your home for free! Ready for the details?
