If you’re won­der­ing what the next big tech gad­get will be, head to the kitchen. As the name sug­gests, the Di­a­log oven, un­veiled in Au­gust by Miele and sched­uled for re­lease in Hong Kong in 2019, “talks and lis­tens to food”, be it sal­mon, pas­try or a slab of meat. The oven is able to tell how much of its elec­tro­mag­netic waves—waves of a dif­fer­ent and gen­tler fre­quency than in tra­di­tional mi­crowave ovens—your food has ab­sorbed, and as­sess its tex­ture, and then re­sponds by ad­just­ing the cook­ing power. This is done in tan­dem with ra­di­ant heat and a con­vec­tion fan. As a re­sult, the food cooks evenly and quickly. For its de­but, Miele ex­ecs placed an un­cooked fish em­bed­ded in a block of ice in the Di­a­log oven, which cooked the fish while the ice re­mained frozen—mod­ern “witch­craft” pos­si­ble be­cause the waves pass through the ice and are fo­cused on the food. The oven has a user-friendly touch dis­play, a py­rolytic self-clean­ing func­tion, LED light­ing, and a smart­phone app that can send de­tailed in­struc­tions to the oven and pro­vide recipes.
