Las Vegas, NV  – Panasonic today announced that they are collaborating with Drop, the leading smart kitchen platform, to simplify the lives of home cooks using their appliances. With customized navigation, users will have access to advanced features like resizing recipes or offering substitutions for missing ingredients. 

“Meal preparation can be a daily challenge,” said Fumi Usuki, IoT Business Development Senior Manager at Panasonic. “This collaboration offers an articulated solution, providing adjustable step by step instruction and an additional value proposition to consumers using our appliances.” 

The first step in this relationship is a number of microwave ovens utilizing Drop’s guided cooking recipe format. The Panasonic microwave ovens offer uniquely superior heating elements that, when used alongside the Drop Recipes app, enrich the consumer’s dining experience and results in better food. 

“We’re excited to work with a company like Panasonic and find its focus on food and thoughtful design inspiring,” said Ben Harris, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Drop. “We share a vision for a unified experience in the smart kitchen, and this collaboration is the first step in showing how that can happen for the consumer.”
