From BGR:
Ladies and gentlemen, you’re about to take a big step closer to realizing your dream of controlling everything around you with Alexa. Behold, the GE JES1097SMSS Smart Countertop Microwave Oven. It has all sorts of modern microwave technologies built in like GE’s awesome scan-to-cook tech, but it also has something even better: Alexa! Just say something like “Alexa, microwave for five minutes” and your food will be piping hot in no time. $140 is more than reasonable for this hot new microwave.

It’s designed with plenty of upgraded cooking features (in addition to being Alexa-enabled) including Scan-to-cook technology which helps remove the guesswork out of heating up frozen meals. To use this function, simply download the corresponding GE app, scan the meal’s barcode and let the microwave determine the appropriate cooking time and power level to ensure your meal comes out evenly cooked. It also features seven different pre-programmed settings to easily cook popcorn, pizza, potatoes, vegetables, and more.
