Can I program my own recipes into the oven? If so, how? How do I adjust my existing recipes or other recipes to be smart oven-compatible?
Yes, you can program your WLabs™ Smart Oven to remember the exact temperatures and cooking times of your favorite dishes or cherished family recipes. Plus, the systematic algorithms of our smart oven will start to recognize and collect those cooking patterns, making it even smarter over time.
Can I use the Wlabs™ Smart Oven with meal kits?
Yes, you can use the smart oven with meal kits. Simply use the oven as the meal kit instructions state and enjoy your favorite meals. The smart oven can also cook meal kit items using the auto or assisted modes, taking the guesswork out of cooking.
Does the oven automatically turn off once a food has reached the desired result?
The smart oven has three great options for when the cooking cycle is complete. You can choose to hold the cooking temperature, reduce temperature to keep it warm, or turn off the oven.
What kinds of dishes, bakeware, etc., can be used in the smart oven? And can I put parchment paper, foil, etc., in the smart oven?
You can use anything that's marked both oven and microwave safe in the smart oven. Extreme caution should be exercised when using containers constructed of materials other than metal or glass. Do not use paper, cardboard, plastic, or anything flammable in the smart oven. Foil is only permitted in the multipurpose pan to catch grease.
Will the smart oven recognize something that shouldn’t be in there (like foil, metal, etc.)?
While the WLabs™ Smart Oven won’t prompt you to remove items that should not go in the oven, it will prompt users to use the assisted method if it does not recognize an item.
