It barely warrants mentioning that upgrading the kitchen often ranks high on every homeowner’s wishlist. In reality, when the day arrives, the task is often daunting and stressful. That’s because everyone wants to make the right choices – picking the best appliances to fit our everyday needs today, and also hopefully for many years to come. It can be a lot of pressure when you’re weighing options about buying big ticket items such as a new range, refrigerator, multi-cooker, or other large kitchen appliance. You’re essentially committing to a long-term relationship with those specifications and features attached to your eventual choices. Like we said, stressful.
Luxury kitchen appliance maker Signature Kitchen Suite wants to change the narrative with the announcement of ThinQ UP, an additional set of features expanding LG ThinQ powered appliances to evolve according to users’ lifestyles, all easily downloadable from the LG ThinQ app.
So, how does ThinQ UP future-proof the kitchen? It all starts with ThinQ, a platform which provides a simple way to monitor, control, care, and customize, allowing for easy upgrades and enhancements over the span of the appliance’s lifetime. This means as time passes, you won’t have to replace your entire appliance to gain access to new features as they emerge.
But it’s not just about future upgrades. ThinQ-paired appliances are designed to serve your needs in purposeful ways within the kitchen in a myriad of ways today, boasting extensive connectivity and smart capabilities, and integrating seamlessly with a greater smart home ecosystem. The ThinQ platform is designed around the ability to control and monitor compatible appliances from anywhere using a smartphone, or with voice commands using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. You haven’t experienced “the future is now” convenience until you’ve commanded your dishwasher to start from another room.
Imagine being able to check whether you left the refrigerator door open while at the grocery store, see if the dishwasher is finished running, or be notified when it’s time for your water filter to be replaced. For those who enjoy wine regularly, picture storing and keeping inventory of your favorite vintages within a connected wine cellar with its very own label scanner. Over time it can not only learn what you like to drink, but can even recommend new wines, like a personalized digital sommelier.
You can also use the ThinQ app to keep track of your groceries. The Signature Kitchen Suite refrigerator not only keeps food fresh, but the ThinQ app can suggest recipes based on what ingredients you have using ThinQ Recipe. LG’s Scan to Cook feature can supplement over 10,000 one-click shoppable recipes.
And who hasn’t been stumped about what to make for dinner? ThinQ’s LG Original Series recipe collection solves meal time indecision with a digital cookbook of delectable dishes developed by SKS’ own Executive Chef Nick Ritchie to add to your cooking repertoire. Learning a new recipe can be daunting, so each recipe is accompanied with a how-to video to stream to your mobile device and help along the way, from preparation to plating your restaurant-quality meal at home.
If you have a Signature Kitchen Suite oven, there is even less guesswork involved while cooking – the appliances actively adjust settings according to the recipe and ingredients, ensuring perfect results every time. With ThinQ appliances, it’s like having your own personal assistant in the kitchen, guiding you through culinary adventures, continually adapting to what, when, and how you like to cook.
These are all real world features available today, thanks to ThinQ. Each feature has been thoughtfully conceived to take out the guesswork and give you peace of mind… even when you’re away from home. It’s all made possible by ThinQ’s connectivity technology, weaving Signature Kitchen Suite appliances and other compatible devices into a fully connected ecosystem, where appliances collaborate into a seamless user experience.
More features alone do not define a luxury experience, something Signature Kitchen Suite emphasizes through its curated and accessible simplicity. Instead of fumbling through a confusing nested menu system, this new generation of appliances allows users to easily adjust settings, receive notifications, and even diagnose and troubleshoot issues remotely in a manner we’re already used to navigating daily.
Via ThinQ Care Alerts, ThinQ connected appliances can provide informative data about performance and efficiency with Usage Reports, troubleshoot problems with Smart Diagnosis and Trusted Advice features, and even summon expert help via an integrated Concierge Service – all to your mobile device.
Overall, Signature Kitchen Suite attracts plenty of attention with its combination of luxurious design and category leading features. But what you may come to appreciate most with the brand’s ThinQ technology powered appliances is the seamless convenience and connectivity they add to the overall smart home environment. With remote control and monitoring capabilities used in harmony with other ThinQ smart home devices, Signature Kitchen Suite has designed a solution for keeping up with rapid advancements in technology, ensuring your smart home remains intelligently aware of your personal preferences and needs for years to come.
