LAS VEGAS, Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time, Sharp Home Electronics Company of America (SHCA) will exhibit its Simply Better Living solutions for the kitchen at the 2020 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas, NV from January 21st-23rd including several smart Wi-Fi enabled appliances. Sharp's entire kitchen suite of products will be on display at the Las Vegas Convention Center, including its Microwave Drawer™ Ovens, SuperSteam+™ Built-In Ovens, Over-the-Range Microwave Ovens, Induction Cooktops, Counter-Depth Refrigerators, Dishwasher, Range Hoods, and its line of Plasmacluster® Ion Air Purifiers.
"Our innovative home appliances are simple to use, better than the competition and encourage a healthy lifestyle. We are thrilled to be able to share these innovations with the design and building communities at this year's show," said Jim Sanduski, President, SHCA. "With more than 50 years of cooking heritage, we are focused on the development of modern, connected products that bring our Simply Better Living promise to life for consumers."
Sharp is dedicated to improving people's lives through advanced technology and a commitment to innovation, quality, value, and design. Products like Air Purifiers with our patented Plasmacluster® Ion technology provide cleaner, fresher air at the touch of a button. Sharp Microwave Ovens, with thoughtful touches and convenient features, are accessible and easy to use. Finally, Sharp offers innovative, built-in products like our Microwave Drawer™ oven and the revolutionary, SuperSteam+™ oven, which uses purely superheated steam at browning temperatures to grill without smoke and roast without drying.
"With our new suite of kitchen appliances, we're taking Sharp and the home kitchen to the next level," said Peter Weedfald, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Sharp Electronics Marketing Company of America. "Our goal for each product is to deliver on our brand promise to service the imaginations of home cooks across the U.S. We believe our innovative products and technologies are both practical, and valuable contributions to any modern, smart home."
In addition, Sharp will be featuring several new products at KBIS, including:
24 in. IoT Microwave Drawer™ Oven with Sharp Kitchen App & Easy Wave Open (SMD2489ES)
The Sharp 24 in. IoT Microwave Drawer™ Built-In Oven (SMD2489ES) builds upon the brand's incredible market share and success by introducing the first, smart Wi-Fi and Alexa-enabled, built-in Microwave Drawer™ Oven for seamless integration into your modern, smart home. Features include built-in airflow control for flush mounting, "Easy Wave Open" for quick, touchless opening, and a Sharp Kitchen mobile application for iOS and Android devices to enable the smart features.

24 in. IoT SuperSteam+™ Built-in Wall Oven (SSC2489DS)
This smart, Wi-Fi enabled, 3-in-1 built-in wall oven with superheated steam, steam cook, and convection bake includes an edge-to-edge black glass and stainless-steel design. This second-generation SuperSteam+™ oven includes "Steam Bake" and "Water Bath" for professional quality results at home baking cheesecakes and artisan bread. The Sharp SuperSteam+™ oven is not a traditional "steamer". Regular steam only reaches 212°F, but the SuperSteam+™ Oven also creates superheated steam at 485°F. Meats will brown. Sugars will caramelize. You can grill without smoke, roast without drying and your food is crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. This IoT-enabled product pairs with a companion mobile application powered by SideChef for basic operations, as well as smart cooking time and temperature settings, and smart recipe guides. With 24 recipes built into the oven and 43 additional recipes found within the app, everyone can get started cooking with superheated steam right away. The removable reservoir means no special plumbing or wet-wall installation is required. A standard 120V power requirement means you can plug it into a standard outlet and you're ready to go.
