Sharp Emphasizes Smart Home Innovation and Appliance Connectivity at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show 2024

New products showcase underlines Sharp's commitment to deliver appliances
that enhance the home and deliver simply better living

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- In addition to a sweet collaboration with cake artist April Julian and the debut of a high-tech High Speed Oven, Sharp Home Electronics Company of America (SHCA) is emphasizing innovation in smart living technologies during the 2024 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). SHCA aims to redefine the heart of the home with the introduction of a range of smart kitchen products.

From starting the dishwasher remotely to telling Alexa to microwave popcorn, smart appliances are revolutionizing the way you go about completing daily tasks. Finding ways for consumers to communicate hands-free with Sharp's kitchen devices, SHCA is making its commitment to connectivity clear with its portfolio of appliances on display. 

The Sharp kitchen suite is replete with smart living appliances, including Works with Alexa integrations that allow consumers to use voice commands for help with cooking and general appliance functions, as well as the Sharp Kitchen App., a remote cooking navigator available through Wi-Fi connectivity.   Several Sharp smart kitchen appliances also incorporate preset recipes and provide sensor cooking technology to help prepare food according to factors such as weight. These technologies make cooking more convenient.

"The way we interact with our homes has fundamentally changed for the better in recent years, and we only expect that to continue exponentially in the future," said Jim Sanduski, President, SHCA. "Sharp is at the forefront of driving this smart living revolution. It's an exciting time in the home appliance ecosystem, and we can't wait to show off Sharp's smart home products at KBIS this year."

Outside of the cooking space, some Sharp products, like select dishwasher models, can provide additional smart functionality, respectively, allowing for voice-activated and mobile app control to dictate power modes, cycle status and more.

"At Sharp, we are continually looking for ways to innovate and advance technology design to maximize functionality and efficiency," said Peter Weedfald, SVP of Sales and Marketing, SHCA, and 2023 ONCON Icon Top 100 Marketer Award recipient. "We remain steadfast to deliver on our 'Simply Better Living' promise – to create solutions for the home that make living easier."

Sharp's line of smart appliances can be viewed online via the Sharp Virtual Kitchen Showroom, which is a recipient of the 2024 NKBA Innovative Showroom Award. KBIS attendees can check out the latest connected appliances from Sharp first-hand on the show floor, including:
