Instant Pot is expanding its multi-cooker assortment with the addition of its Instant Pot Smart WiFi pressure cooker that is compatible with Google Assistant. The new unit will debut at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
According to company officials, the connectivity to Google Assistant will allow home cooks to use the cooking appliance through voice commands. The Instant Pot Smart WiFi cooker allows the end user to monitor and control the unit from Instant Pot’s mobile app and the added functionality with the Google Assistant lets them control and check the status of the cooker hands-free with just their voice.
“This collaboration with Google shows our commitment to making life a little easier for people, especially when it comes to mealtime. Instant Brands is committed to continued improvement and updates to the user experience in its products and advancements,” said Dr. Robert Wang, founder and CEO of Instant Brands Inc., the parent company of Instant Pot.
The new pressure cooker features more than 10 cooking settings that include soup/broth, meat/stew, cake, rice and slow cook.
