Tovala plans to integrate its Tovala IQ technology with select LG ovens and smart ranges. After the service’s meals are delivered and prepped, the homeowner can scan the meal barcode on their Tovala app, place the meal in an LG oven, and press start on the app. Integrated LG smart ovens and ranges will automatically preheat and cycle through the temperatures and settings necessary to cook the specific meal.
“By integrating Tovala’s Tovala IQ technology into LG ovens and ranges, consumers can enjoy a smart cooking solution that enables them to effortlessly cook and enjoy delicious, fresh meals without any of the prepping or cleanup usually associated with home cooking,” says David VanderWaal, senior vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA.
The integration is part of LG’s s Open Partnership, Open Platform, and Open Connectivity strategy, which encourages sharing ideas and platforms in order to create seamless products. Tovala will join a number of LG’s other smart kitchen partners, including Innit, SideChef, and Drop, which offer recipes, meal planning, cooking instructions, and more. The platforms can send precise cooking instructions to integrated smart LG appliances.
