By Ken Briodagh March 20, 2017

According to a recent announcement, Gourmia, a designer and manufacturer of countertop kitchen appliances, is set to make a smart splash during its first appearance at the International Home +Housewares Show in Chicago's McCormick Place. The company says its new offering will help every cook – whether a seasoned veteran or a nervous novice – become a smart cook.

Using the latest IoT technology, including Alexa, Google Home and voice commands, the new Gourmia mobile kitchen app is designed to directly link enabled company products to the user's smartphone or tablet. Once linked, the cook and app can join forces, the company said.


“We are honored that Gourmia's IoT smart kitchen technology is a finalist in the smart home category of the International Housewares Show's prestigious GIA awards,” said Heshy Biegeleisen, founder, Gourmia. “Building on this excitement, we are ready to show industry professionals the many advantages to carrying our exciting – and growing – line of smart kitchen countertop appliances. And we want everyone stepping into our booth to discover what they are.”

Gourmia smart small kitchen appliances are specifically designed to be smarter, which include the following features:


One Cohesive App: The Gourmia mobile kitchen app for iOS and Android connects to every Gourmia IoT device, allowing users to control their appliances from their mobile device.

Built-In Cook Cam: On selected Gourmia IoT appliances, it takes videos or photos of food being cooked.

Alexa and Google Home Integration: Gourmia IoT technology embedded in the appliances is compatible with voice services, such as Alexa and Google Home.

Safe Cooking: The mobile kitchen app has the ability to block usage of an appliance if there is no adult supervision present, and can remotely monitor a Gourmia smart appliance and turn it off if needed.

Recipe Book: The Gourmia mobile kitchen app automatically programs recipes into any Gourmia IoT kitchen appliance, plans meals, calculates calories in a meal, and generates a grocery shopping list based on a selected recipe.

Family Preferences: It can integrate each member's preferences regarding food choices, favorite recipes, and desired meal for special events.
