Holiday time generally means cooking time, and lots of it. That’s why we’re highlighting this microwave that’s been on the market for just a couple of months. Except it’s more than a microwave, more than an oven, and more than a grill, although it can play each of those roles. The LG Lightwave has some additional features that take it above your standard “microwave-oven-grill” combo, a pretty non-standard offering itself.
For faster cooking without a microwave, the oven function uses halogen heaters. The major feature, though, and the reason this appliance has been so talked-about, is the addition of wireless access. That’s right, you can control your oven through your phone. When you just can’t tear yourself away from your favorite TV show, even with a minute of two of pausing the DVR, now you can just adjust the oven temperature from the comfort of the couch. Across the street talking to your neighbor and going a little longer than expected? Set the timer to shut off at the right time. And if you happen to be out at the movies and remember that you never cleaned up after your latest cooking experiment gone wrong, just log in and activate the oven’s self-cleaner from afar.
Of course, with the mix of cooking methods combined with wireless access, the electronic backbone of the Lightwave is complex and intricate. The electronic controls involved in hardware like this are a model for the type of work that Etratech excels at. Do you have the next big kitchen breakthrough?
