LG says the goal is to help provide meal inspiration and faster, more convenient prep for all those homeowners who are now cooking more at home.
"As U.S. consumers prepare more meals at home, they are craving new ways to make meal prep simpler, more exciting and fun," says Peggy Ang, head of marketing at LG Electronics USA. "LG's new ranges make it easy for everyone to get involved in mealtime with the LG InstaView glass door that enables users to easily turn on the oven light with two quick knocks, while the Air Fry technology delivers the crispy flavor of comfort food for a crowd fast. Trying new recipes is even easy with access to smart recipe apps that guide you step-by-step."
LG Electronics USA says that wtih more Americans cooking at home than ever the introduction of the industry’s first line of smart ranges to offer InstaView knock on technology will make life more convenent.
With four new models starting at $1,099, LG InstaView Ranges with Air Fry help families break free of mealtime monotony with access to apps offering tens of thousands recipes that send specific oven temperatures and cook times directly to the oven, the company explains. In addition, the ranges offer the company’s Proactive Customer Care, a preventive maintenance service that sends users customized tips and alerts to keep their range performing its best for the long haul.
As part of the range line, LG took a cue from InstaView refrigerators (of which more than one million units have been sold). The InstaView ranges let users check cooking progress without opening the door or reaching over a hot cooktop to flip a switch. A user simply knock twice on the oven's glass window to illuminate the interior and visually monitor cooking progress. And if their hands are full or dirty, the range will light up if gently tapped twice with an elbow, knee or even foot. “Now, everyone from the youngest to the oldest can get involved by quickly and safely keeping an eye on what's cooking with the oven door closed, while saving energy and reducing cooking times,” LG says.

In addition to the InstaView feature, the collection of ranges offer Air Fry technology for quick, satisfying, crispy flavor without the guilt or wasted counter space. Unlike smaller countertop air fryers, Air Fry is built into the large capacity oven. High temperatures and the convection fan work together to deliver the crunch that the whole family craves with no preheating and without the extra oil.
“When Air Fry is not in use, LG True Convection delivers continuous, precise heat for even browning and crisping—all while cooking more quickly and efficiently,” the company says. “Cleanup is simple with LG EasyClean—the fastest oven-clean feature available. Simply spray the interior with water and let the oven do work in just 10 minutes without chemicals. For tougher baked-on splatters, the self-clean function delivers high heat for a deep clean.”
Finally, the stoves allow users to connect their appliance to the company’s ThinQ app; they can start the oven, set timers, or check meal status from anywhere, making multitasking easy. Users can go hands-free and operate select features of the oven with voice commands through Alexa and the Google Assistant. It also allows to take the monotony out of planning home-cooked meals with access to tens of thousands of recipes via SideChef, Innit, and Tovala smart cooking apps, which automatically send temperature and cook time settings to the oven.
Perfect for families spending more time cooking together at home, LG ranges now offer Air Fry technology.
