A smart oven might not do the cooking for you, but it gets pretty close. With so many interesting choices available, there's an option for everybody.

Smart ThinQ Range

Do you still wait until you get home to start cooking? Now, there's no need. The LG's Smart ThinQ can be managed through a smartphone app, allowing you to start and stop the oven, set the temperature, and even initiate the self-cleaning feature while you're still at the office.

If that's not impressive enough, how about the oven's Infrared Grill System? It cuts your cooking time by about 20 percent, saving you money and doing away with the age-old excuse we've all used: "I don't have time to cook." Plus, the Smart ThinQ has an electronic panel to help you control not only the oven, but also the cooktop elements.

AGA iTotal Control

When it comes to controlling your oven at a distance, the AGA has an edge. Not only can you start and choose temperatures through a smartphone app, but you can text your oven commands or log into the oven's control panel through the Internet.

You have to install a special GSM remote access device (which requires a SIM card) in order to control the appliance, but once that's done, you'll be amazed at what this oven can do. For instance, the control it gives you while you cook is impressive. This oven has three different cooking zones, and you can control them individually. Then you can pick whether you want to roast, bake, or simmer your food.

Plus, the AGA has the look of an old-style cast-iron oven, perfect for homeowners that want the convenience of a smart oven without it looking anachronistically futuristic or high-tech compared to the rest of their kitchen.

Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven

If you don't have the space or the funds for a standard oven, the Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven could be the perfect solution. This 1800 watt countertop oven might look like a toaster oven, but its top-of-the-line digital panel and its five-quartz heating elements means it can easily compete with full-size ovens.

Not only can you preset the temperature and cooking time, but the oven has an auto-eject wire rack, ensuring your food doesn't continue to cook once the timer goes off. Not the best cook? That's OK. The oven has predetermined settings that will suggest how long you should be cooking your food so it comes out perfect.

Whether you're looking for convenience or you're ready to take a full step into the future, there's a smart oven out there that will fit your needs and your style.
