Companies are unveiling some pretty mind-blowing technologies at CES 2014, but we may be most excited about Whirlpool’s new line of cooktops that it says consumers can expect by 2020.Technology meets cuisine in an interactive, multi-purpose cooktop that allows its users to find recipes on Pinterest, cook dinner and then check the weather – all on the same surface.
Activated by the sound of your voice or the touch of your finger, the Whirlpool Interactive Cooktop is just another example of how technology and daily tasks are meeting to create amazing possibilities. And, with seamless integration to mobile and social media, Whirlpool is helping make cooking and entertaining even more engaging.
According to a CES Q&A with Jason Tippetts, brand studio design manager of global consumer design at Whirlpool®, “The Interactive Cooktop is all about doing what you need to when you need to, how you like to.”
