SideChef, the pioneer in culinary software development, teams up with Amazon to provide a robust step-by-step cooking experience complete with voice guidance, rich photography, and video demos on all visually capable Alexa devices, including the Echo Show and Echo Spot.
Amazon Echo users will now be able to ask Alexa for recipe suggestions, and the Echo Show and Echo Spot will display and read off options and search results. Over 7,000 SideChef recipes will be available with additional dishes added weekly, and SideChef’s collection of recipes will offer comprehensive step-by-step visual (photos and video) and audio navigation through every phase of the cooking process. The user experience will allow cooks to prompt Alexa for “next steps,” to “repeat instructions,” give further clarity on ingredients and measurements, set timers, and more—removing the need to manually reference recipes while hands are occupied with food preparation.
“By offering SideChef content through Amazon’s family of Echo devices, millions of users now have access to thousands of free interactive smart recipes,” says Founder and CEO of SideChef Kevin Yu. “Our smart cooking platform is paving the way for technology to seamlessly integrate with kitchens around the world, and we’re excited to be able to connect users with recipes from celebrity chefs, popular bloggers, and the ever-growing SideChef community.”
SideChef continues to expand on forward-thinking partnerships from developing internet of things smart kitchen software for appliance brands including Electrolux, V-ZUG, LG, and SHARP to working with culinary-focused brands such as AmazonFresh to meet the everyday needs of the modern home cook.
