Simply stated, WLabs is Whirlpool’s innovation incubator. It introduces new products in spaces unknown to Whirlpool — like our smart oven — and intentionally thinks and acts differently from the rest of the organization. Employees are risk-takers and mold breakers and can quickly conduct research and development, innovate, and engineer products on a small scale. Click here to learn more.

Our smart oven has an internal camera and infrared sensor which recognize the food type and whether foods are fresh or frozen. Once recognized, we use cooking algorithms to dial in the cooking cycle to deliver great results that can be customized to your liking.

The smart oven can recognize more than 40 different types of fresh and frozen foods, including pizza, chicken breast, bacon, Brussels sprouts and more. More foods will be added to this list over time.

Once the smart oven recognizes the food placed inside, it will bring up cooking options based on your preferences. If you put in a pizza, the smart oven will give you a range of crispiness options to choose from, and it will remember your preferences over time.

The smart oven will detect one primary food and cook to that food algorithm. This means some foods, like chicken and vegetables, can successfully cook at the same time. However, foods with different cook times should be added separately. If cooking foods at the same time, you can keep a close eye on your dishes progress with the Live Look-In feature.

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.

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.

The smart oven’s built-in preheat feature eliminates the lag time between preheating and cooking but maintains the precise temperature needed to cook your food just the way you like it.

Our smart oven’s kitchen countertop size and design have a smaller footprint than a full-size oven. So it utilizes less energy, while still letting you prepare an infinite variety of culinary creations. And, like many appliances, energy consumption varies based on frequency of use and style of cooking.

Yes, the current cooking algorithm is set to a 95 percent confidence interval, so cooking times and settings should be very accurate. 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.

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 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.

While the 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.
