According to the company's sub-brand WLabs, the smart appliance automatically recognizes the type of food (and its starting temperature – fresh or frozen) placed inside and it also sets the time and temperature required for a personalized and perfected result.
 
The company didn't share exactly how many types of food its algorithms can recognize, but it claims they’re accurate enough to tell the difference between frozen and thawed items.
 
The Smart Countertop Oven offers 11 different modes - bake, broil, convection bake, convection roast, toast, reheat, proof, dehydrate, air fry, slow cook, and keep warm; has a built-in food thermometer to check whether your meat is done; and can update you on your cooking status via in-app notifications.
 
Moreover, it’s Alexa and Google Assistant-compatible, allowing you to use voice commands to control it.
