Discovery Inc.’s Food Network Kitchen has officially launched here in the U.S. It’s the “first-ever live, interactive cooking product” which launched with an “all-star line-up of live classes from top Food Network chefs” and more. This new app, which is available across Amazon Alexa, Echo Show, Fire Tablet, and Fire TV devices, as well as iOS and Android products, will help you improve your cooking prowess. Designed to assist customers “by solving pain points associated with cooking”, will include meal prep and grocery shopping tips.

Food Network Kitchen arrives on Alexa-enabled devices

The new Food Network Kitchen app is built specifically for Amazon’s Alexa and Fire lineup of products, but also works on Android and iOS devices. What is Food Network Kitchen, you may ask? Well, it’s designed to help you, an at-home chef, enjoy cooking more.

Food Network Kitchen will feature 25 live and interactive classes each and every week, along with the ability to order groceries for delivery straight from the app. This is a first where customers will be able to stream a live cooking class with two-way interaction. The two-way interaction is crucial here, as users and chefs can easily communicate in real-time.

9to5Toys’ take

If you’re looking for a way to upgrade your cooking game, this seems to be a great option. Being compatible with Amazon devices like the Echo Show 5, which are already in many kitchens, is a huge plus. But, the biggest benefit here is that it works with iOS and Android devices, so nobody is excluded from being able to enjoy the content.
