Fresco launches KitchenOS: a connected kitchen platform

Fresco has launched KitchenOS, an all-in-one operating system that innovates connected appliance usage by providing IoT appliance control, smart recipe suggestions and interactive tools to the end users.

According to Fresco, the newly launched platform integrates all the essential elements to maximise the potential of smart appliances. In a fragmented smart kitchen market, Fresco’s KitchenOS brings uniformity and cross-brand connectivity, offering manufacturers a chance to interact with their customers in a more customised way. "Our operating system bridges these gaps by enabling cross-brand connectivity so that home cooks can seamlessly orchestrate any appliance in the kitchen no matter the brand," said Ben Harris, CEO and co-founder of Fresco.

Tailored solutions for home cooks

Based on 12 months of intensive research and user testing, Fresco has created a smart cooking assistant addressing the various challenges faced by home cooks. This assistant provides guided cooking, multi-appliance control, and a universal user experience, thus making cooking an effortless, enjoyable process for cooks of any skill level. Additionally, it connects users to a growing network of appliance manufacturers and recipe publishers. Fresco's long-term partner, Instant Brands, is the first to introduce an appliance, the Instant Pot Pro Plus, powered by KitchenOS. This partnership promises to further propel the evolution of the smart kitchen concept.

Fresco additionally provides a team of experts to help manufacturers launch their smart appliances swiftly, reducing time, complexity and cost.
