Connected Design Home Pavilion Features Wine Column Refrigerator with ‘True Sommelier’ App Powered by WineRing, Pro Range with Innit ‘Adaptive Cooking’ Technology
Signature Kitchen Suite, the new luxury brand that leads innovation in the high-end kitchen appliance market, is demonstrating smart kitchen advances with industry-leading partners WineRing and Innit at CE Week 2019.
Led by new wine column refrigerators and unique pro-style ranges, Signature Kitchen Suite’s Wi-Fi-enabled appliances are the centerpiece of CE Week’s Connected Design Home pavilion, according to Toni Sabatino, president of the Manhattan Chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association, who collaborated with CE Week on the pavilion. “At this highly anticipated destination for people looking for the latest in smart home technology, attendees will see how leading brands like Signature Kitchen Suite and their partners are catering to a new breed of luxury consumers known as ‘Technicureans,’” she said.
Smart Wine Cave Refrigerator with True Sommelier App
One of the trailblazing smart kitchen innovations featured at CE Week is Signature Kitchen Suite’s True Sommelier™ app, which helps wine collectors manage their personal collections on the brand’s new integrated 18- and 24-inch wine column refrigerators. Powered by Wine Ring’s patented machine learning, this is the first smart software that learns preferences and makes wine recommendations, including food pairings, for individuals and groups based on the wines stored in the user’s cellar.
To develop the True Sommelier app, Signature Kitchen Suite partnered with Wine Ring, the wine industry’s leading AI-driven, personalization software. Its patented “Preference Intelligence Engine,” powered by technology company RingIT, develops a comprehensive user preference profile to drive the most accurate recommendations in the wine industry, according to Wine Ring co-founder and CEO Pam Dillon.
“Signature Kitchen Suite is leading thinking in wine storage,” Dillon said. “They are going be-yond simply connecting kitchens to building kitchens that learn, and Wine Ring smart software helps power their vision.” She said Wine Ring and RingIT also are working with Signature Kitchen Suite to incorporate LG SmartThinQTM cloud-based functionalities into the True Sommelier app including when-to-drink vintage indicators and remote adjustment of wine refrigerator temperature.
Also unique to the award-winning wine refrigerators is Signature Kitchen Suite’s Wine CaveTM technology, designed for precise wine preservation, inspired by the traditional, historic old-world caves of wineries, located near the company’s new Experience & Design Center in Napa, Calif. The exclusive Wine Cave design significantly reduces vibration – a primary impediment to wine preservation, which causes chemical imbalances affecting the quality, flavors, aromas and texture – as well as minimizes temperature fluctuations, limits light exposure and locks in humidity.
Pro Style Range with Smart Adaptive Cooking Technology
The award-winning ranges from Signature Kitchen Suite are the first to feature built-in sous vi-de, as well as induction and gas, directly on the cooktop. These appliances offer the ultimate in precision cooking for today’s TechnicureanTM home chef that demands innovation, performance and versatility, allowing them to prepare food in the best way possible regardless of their preferred cooking methods.
Signature Kitchen Suite is working with Innit to integrate software on pro ranges and ovens so they will work seamlessly with Innit Premium Recipes, featuring AdaptiCOOK™ technology that automatically controls oven temperature cycles and cooking modes ideal for each meal throughout the cooking process.
Innit’s platform uniquely enables consumers to customize meals based on their dietary and taste preferences, with simple video instructions for every step of the meal. Multiple dishes can be orchestrated to minimize overall preparation time, ensuring that everything is done and hot at the same time. Innit AdaptiCOOK enables precision cooking using the unique features of each appliance, across multiple steps and temperatures, to achieve restaurant-quality results with a single click or voice command.
“Signature Kitchen Suite has quickly emerged as a leading innovator in the luxury appliance category,” said Kevin Brown, CEO and co-founder of Innit. “Our teams are working closely to enable amazing cooking results, with customizable meals that fit the lifestyle and dietary preferences of today’s home chef, consistent with Signature Kitchen Suite’s True to Food™ philosophy.”
