152 | 2015 INTERNATIONAL CES DAILY | JANUARY 6-9, 2015 BOOTH 75148 Lynx Grills returns to Internation- al CES with an update to last year's voice-guided smart-grill prototype. The latest Lynx SmartGrill iteration is a produc- tion model that features a new operating system, a powerful new app, increased functionality, a vast database of recipes, and the same voice-command interactivity. "Since the SmartGrill prototype received a great response at CES 2014, our team has been focused on making this revolutionary product a practical option for any outdoor leisure space," said Lynx Grills CEO Jim Buch. "What we are delivering is a truly next-generation product that takes all the guesswork out of grilling and helps anyone become the master of his outdoor kitchen." Its central feature is a MyChef operating system, which uses onboard speech-recognition technolo- gy to ask a series of questions and respond to users' answers to determine what they are going to cook and how it will be prepared. (Users can also inter- face with the grill via a companion SmartGrill app.) Once the user chooses one of the hundreds of recipes from the SmartGrill database, the unit auto- matically ignites and heats itself to optimal grilling temperature. It then guides the user through each step in the cook- ing process via audio and visual alerts. The result, said Buch, is a perfectly cooked meal each and ev- ery time. Similarly, Lynx's updated iOS and Android app directly monitors cooking times and temperatures, and alerts users when attention is required. The app also allows users to shut off the grill remotely, and an emergency shutoff feature will turn off the grill if it doesn't receive instructions for 30 minutes. The SmartGrill w ill be available this March in three sizes (30-, 36- and 42-inch) and will be priced to hit a retail range of $6,000 to $9,000.
