The 'Klove Knob' is a piece of technology that can be retrofitted to any stove to offer a cook timer, voice-assisted recipes and interactive conversations with Alexa/Google Home. Over time, the device's assistant becomes more attuned to one's personal preferences and cooking habits. The hands-free smart kitchen device monitors heat settings and offers alerts when changes should be made to the settings.
To install the device, one must remove an existing stove knob and replace it with the spindle adapter and the new Klove Knob.
The IoT Klove Knob was named the winner of Nestle Next Big Thing 2017 contest for start-ups. This is of note because the smart Klove Knob could potentially be able to scan branded food packages and offer recipe or serving suggestions to at-home chefs.
