Yes, Alexa Can Even Power Your Microwave (You Still Have to Chew, Though)


Amazon has revolutionized the online retail scene, and its introduction into smart home products has proved successful. Now, the company continues their goal toward world domination with its $60 Alexa-powered microwave with a Dash button for popcorn.

Check out these 20 amazing Alexa hacks all homeowners should know.

The microwave oven is the first kitchen appliance from the company, and will be sold under the AmazonBasics line. Shipping begins November 14th — just in time for all the busy cooking and kitchen mayhem that the holidays bring.

Once you set up Alexa with certain skills, it can help you in many ways. Here are 10 unexpected ways you can use it.

The smart device will feature voice-activated presets, allowing you to order the appliance to heat up different types of food, like frozen vegetables or popcorn, and other cooking needs, like a one-minute heat-up. There’s also a built-in Alexa button on the device, which you can press if you don’t want to say “Alexa” or “microwave,” but rather speak the cook time or preset you prefer directly. You will need an Echo device nearby to make it work.

If you’re a fan of Amazon’s Alexa, then you are going to love Kohler’s Verdera Voice Lighted Mirror.

Other notable features of this microwave include commands like “reheat coffee” which will fire up the microwave automatically; “Stop” to stop the microwave at any time; and add time by saying “add 30 seconds.”

There’s also an integrated Dash replenishment service, which currently works for popcorn. Essentially, you pick your choice of popcorn on Amazon, and as you go through your supply, it automatically figures out you’re running low and will re-order a new batch automatically!

Alexa has several skills you may not even know about. Here are 11 things it can do for you.
