As usual, LG has unveiled its latest smart appliances for CES 2022, but this time they come with an unusual twist: a recipe service. The ThinQ Recipe app will let users choose from up to 10,000 recipes, with the app adding ingredients to your grocery list for delivery from Walmart or Amazon Fresh.
LG has partnered with SideChef on the app, letting you cook up anything from a single recipe to a weekly meal plan. It also uses the Scan and Cook feature from Foodspace Technology that scans a bar code on certain frozen and ready-to-cook meals, automatically sending cooking instructions to compatible LG ThinQ ovens.
The new feature is designed to work with LG’s latest InstaView Double Range oven and Over-the-range microwave. The former uses LG’s InstaView tech that lets you see inside the appliance by knocking twice on the glass. It also uses LG’s ProBake convection tech with Air Fry and Air Sous Vide modes, while the microwave offers LG’s Steam Cook tech to keep foods moist when cooking.
The new appliances with ThinQ recipe will be shown at LG’s virtual exhibition booth at CES 2022 starting on January 5th, though LG didn’t say when the app and appliances would go on sale. CES 2022 is still scheduled to proceed next week in Las Vegas, with LG, Samsung and Sony still committed as of this writing. Other companies including Amazon, Google, Meta and Lenovo have backed out of real-world involvement, however.
