Smart Appliances Will Make My Life Better


LG’s ThinkQ Kitchen Showcase at CES 2018 is a gamechanger



The following post is a guest contribution from Dave Pardo, social media manager with Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group.

CES 2018 turned out to be one of the most unique experiences I’ve ever had and I am grateful to have been a part of the Coldwell Banker Blue Crew. One of the most interesting products I experienced was the LG ThinQ Kitchen Showcase, which included smart refrigerators, oven ranges, dishwashers, washer and dryers, air purifiers, and other innovative appliances designed to enhance our busy lifestyles.

LG InstaView ThinkQ Refrigerator – When I saw this product demonstrated, I felt my appliance dreams had all come true. Not only does its large display allow you to manage its temperature, build shopping lists and leave notes for others, the InstaView lets you search recipes and set reminders to let you know when foods are due to expire, and so much more… all Alexa Voice Service driven, too! My favorite feature… the internal cameras that sends a panoramic view of what’s inside the refrigerator right to your mobile device… from anywhere, at any time. Perfect for when you’re away and need to know what you need to shop for.

LG Induction Slide-in Range – This smart range and oven could easily become my new best friend, as its features include notifying me when my dinner is ready. Trust me, I’ve had my share of overcooked meals. The LG SmartThinQ app not only lets you know how much cooking time is left, but also lets you pre-heat the oven, and remotely turn it on and off. The best part about this appliance… it’s Alexa Voice Service and Google Assistant enabled. What’s cooking in my kitchen, you ask? All I’ll say is that the LG Induction Slide-in Range ‘smells’ like a winner to me!

LG TWINWash Washing Machine – Besides, at times, making the attempt to cook, my laundry hamper might tell you that I need lots of help in the laundry department, too. This smart appliance just might do the trick, especially for when I forget to do laundry because I’m either thinking about other things or rushing out the door to appointments. After filling the washer, the LG SmartThinQ app allows the ability to schedule or start your washing cycle from anywhere. It even lets you know when it’s the washing stage is complete and ready to be moved to its LG SideKick dryer. What a game-changer! With this smart technology, I just may enjoy doing laundry!

By far, the LG Kitchen showcase at CES stood out as the most practical and relevant smart home products for me. This certainly confirms it… with all the innovative technology that LG SmartThinQ appliances now have, the heart of our homes (the kitchen) are certainly not only beating stronger, but beating much smarter, too.
