Bringing Innovation to Meal Prep


Cooking technology and food prep options available today to the modern consumer are vast and varied. However, only a small percentage of people are taking advantage of all the options available for their home appliances.

Are you ghosting your microwave? 

Most consumers don’t use all of the capabilities available on their microwaves and ovens to prepare their food properly. They generally only use the “default” options and are comfortable with what they have always used.   

GE Appliances is leading the way by integrating “Scan to Cook” technology into their household appliances.  This enables GE Appliances to pre-heat and cook food automatically at optimum temperature and proper preparation every time.

How is preparation improved?

  • One step process
  • Automatically switch between multiple cooking modes and temperatures
  • Guesswork is eliminated
  • Integration with smart devices
  • Recipe search
  • Voice Control with Alexa and Google Assistant 

In order to facilitate this new innovation, there must be a foundation in place that supports and feeds accurate content. Complete product information sent through the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) enables this process.

“To optimize meal preparation, the power of technology and product content can be brought together.” ~Bill Gardner, Manager Connected Integrations, GE Appliances

GE Appliances is working with its manufacturing partners to obtain the most current and accurate preparation and cooking instructions. Those are then converted into digital cook steps that can be delivered directly to the appliance.
