Bosch Household Appliances

used its IFA press conference to

highlight the increasing power of

Artificial Intelligence. Later this

year, AI will show what it can do

with the launch of the new Bosch

Serie 8 sensor ovens.

Harald Friedrich, Managing

Director, Bosch Household

Appliances, said: “These appliances

say in advance when cakes or roasts

will be ready, by taking account of

the individual preparation of the

food item in the oven.

The connected oven learns based

on a growing volume of anonymised

data from a large number of baking

and roasting processes.”

Bosch also unveiled Cookit,

the brand’s first connected

multifunctional food processor

with cooking function. Cookit

offers varied and time-saving

preparation options such as Guided

Cooking and manual cooking,

as well as numerous automatic

programmes. “Fitted with the

Home Connect App, cooking

inspirations can also be sent to

Cookit from the comprehensive

recipe pool,” Mr Friedrich said,

“cooking has never been so simple.”

Bosch’s latest developments in

laundry care also rely on smart

technologies. Using the Smart Dry

function, the connected washing

machine and dryer are closely

interconnected. Mr Friedrich said:

“The washing machine sends the

parameters from the last wash –

programme, fill level and remaining

moisture content – to the dryer.

The dryer then automatically

selects the appropriate drying

programme.

COOKING HAS

NEVER BEEN

SO SIMPLE.

“The new dryer no longer needs a

door filter to capture fluff. Thanks

to AutoClean, the fluff is directed

to a repository at the bottom of the

appliance. With average appliance

use, the filter only needs to be

emptied around eight times a year,

whereas previously when using

a door filter this had to be done

around 160 times”

Siemens has announced new

products set to further its vision

of a world where connectivity,

smart technology and design can

help create a seamless life. Roland

Hagenbucher, Managing Director,

Siemens Home Appliances says the

Internet of Things is making its way

into the laundry room with the new

iQ800 laundry care duo.

He said: “The iQ800 washing

machine passes on all its sensor

information to the iQ800 dryer

via the intelligentDry feature, so

the dryer knows, for example, how

much laundry has been washed and

at which speed it was spun and it

chooses the best drying program

based on this information.”

The dryer cleans its condenser and

lint filter automatically, making it

the most convenient dryer in the

world, he explained.

Mr Hagenbucher used his

presentation to demonstrate the

first oven with a door that can be

opened via voice control – without

the user having to lift a single

finger.

He said: “Fingers covered in dough

and the heavy baking tray in both

hands – how great it would be if

the oven door simply opened on

command.”

Using an Alexa speaker, he said:

MOST

CONNECTED

SIEMENS HOME

APPLIANCES

(…) CAN NOW BE

CONTROLLED VIA

THE CURRENTLY

ESTABLISHED VOICE

ASSISTANTS.

“Alexa, tell the oven to open

sesame,” and the oven door duly

opened.

Mr Hagenbucher said: “It’s not just

for ovens that voice control is a hot

topic which is developing at a rapid

pace. Most connected Siemens

home appliances like cookers,

coffee machines, extractor hoods,

dishwashers, washing machines

and dryers can now be controlled

via the currently established voice

assistants. Voice control of home

appliances is now even possible via

smartwatch”
