The ultimate corporate mommy's toy

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | (UPI) -- A U.S. company called Tonight's Menu Intelligent Ovens has come up with a refrigerated microwave that can be controlled over the Internet or by mobile phone.

The product is part of a trend toward the smart kitchen hooked up to the Internet -- one that can tell the oven to immediately refrigerate your chicken once it is cooked, the British Broadcasting Corp. reports.

"This provides the keystone appliance of the Internet kitchen," says David Mansbery, TMIO president.

The prototype microwave oven uses what is called a Peltier cooling device that has two plates of metal over which an electrical current passes and it either heats or cools, according to Mansbery. The appliances are expected to be ready by the end of the year and will cost about $2,000.
