Welcome to Reviews OnLine: Internet Microwave Oven
Internet Microwave Oven
from LG Electronics
by Rick Smith (February 1, 2001)


The LG Electronics Internet Microwave oven is the latest addition to the LGE line of interconnected appliances which also include
the DIOS refrigerator and the Internet washing machine. LGE appears to be positioning itself as a leader in home appliance networking.
Internet Microwave ovens have been commercial products for over a year (Read our coverage of Sharp Internet Microwave at 2000 Housewares Show). LGE's Internet Microwave uses an embedded modem for Internet access. Its LCD touch screen panel doubles as a conventional microwave control and as an Internet access screen. It too can download cooking time and microwave levels for automatic cooking, as well as searching for new recipes online. Because you can surf directly from its front panel, you can bookmark food product sites as well as link to grocery stores for online shopping and ordering.
The LGE Internet Microwave oven will be available in December 2001 and will retail for about 1000 dollars. LGE plans develop further home appliances with Internet connectivity.
