As usual, LG unveiled its latest smart device at CES 2022, but this time it comes with an unusual twist: a recipe service. The ThinQ Recipe app will allow users to 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, allowing you to cook anything from a single recipe to a weekly meal plan. It also uses Foodspace Technology’s Scan & Cook feature that scans a barcode on certain frozen and ready-to-cook meals, and automatically sends cooking instructions to compatible LG ThinQ ovens.
The new feature is designed to work with LG’s latest InstaView dual range oven and over range microwave. The first uses LG’s InstaView technology that allows you to see what’s inside the device by tapping twice on the glass. It also uses LG’s ProBake convection technology with Air Fry and Air Sous Vide modes, while the microwave offers LG’s Steam Cook technology to keep foods moist when cooking.
The new devices will be shown with the ThinQ recipe at LG’s virtual exhibition booth at CES 2022 starting January 5, although LG hasn’t said when the app and hardware will go on sale. CES 2022 is still scheduled to continue next week in Las Vegas, with LG, Samsung and Sony still committed as of this writing. However, other companies including Amazon, Google, Meta, and Lenovo have all held back from participating in the real world.
