LG InstaView ThinQ Alexa fridge adds clever kitchen tricks

At CES 2018, LG Electronics will present its vision for the connected smart kitchen of the future that predicts consumer needs and reduces preparation time.

As a computerized refrigerator, the InstaView ThinQ is able to manage kitchen tasks such as suggesting grocery list and setting expiration dates, which should be a good measure to minimize food wastes.

The LG Instaview ThinQ has a 29-inch LCD touchscreen on the door that doubles as both a computer display and clear, see-through panel to check out the contents inside.

The smart fridge is part of LG's smart kitchen offerings that include the EasyClean Oven and QuadWash Dishwasher, all engineered to "maximize efficiency and ease and to allow more quality time at home".

White House doctor declares Trump 'in excellent health'
Trump's derogatory remarks cited by the Washington Post and New York Times were in reference to African countries and Haiti. Ghana is widely seen as a stable, peaceful country in an often turbulent region, and has close ties to the United States.

For instance, LG notes that the refrigerator can recommend recipes based on what you have in your fridge, then send the info to the connected oven with Alexa reciting the recipe out loud. A panoramic camera can also be found inside the unit, purportedly to allow for remote checking of what items need restocking or tossing. When the oven needs cleaning – which is made simpler by the ovens advanced hydrophilic enamel coating – a notification is automatically sent to the homeowners smartphone. For example, the intelligent dishwasher will select a longer running cycle with hotter water for a greasy dish than with a light vegetable casserole. That's important, because what's new this year is the way the fridge will use its artificial intelligence to interact with those other ThinQ-branded appliances. The multi-motion spray arms promise to clean all dishes of different sizes and shapes.

"The seamless connectivity inherent in LG's smart kitchen solution will revolutionize the cooking and dining habits of consumers ..."

LG has attempted this before, with a version of its InstaView fridge that featured Windows 10, but that particular variant didn't seem to ultimately get off the ground.

It's one of the more Jetsonian pitches that we've heard at CES this year, with a kitchen full of intelligent appliances working together to make dinner easier and more convenient.
