Amazon Alexa Offers Hands-Free Access to 60,000 Recipes


Amazon Alexa wears many hats—fitness tracker, mood setter, life scheduler, trip planner, and now, sous chef.

In partnership with Allrecipes, the digital assistant helps you plan breakfast, lunch, and dinner via hands-free access to 60,000 recipes.

"There is no need to tap, swipe, type, or squint to get the five-star results your family craves," Allrecipes said in a YouTube video description (watch below).

To enable the feature, simply open the Alexa mobile app, navigate to Menu > Skills > Allrecipes; create a new account or link to an existing one before asking Alexa to search and save favorite meals from the website.

Use just your voice to find step-by-step instructions by title, ingredients, or cooking time. Say "Alexa, ask Allrecipes for the Recipe of the Day," for instance. Or "Alexa, ask Allrecipes for an easy lasagna recipe."

Need ideas for how to create a meal using the three ingredients left in your fridge? Kids hungry for something other than meatloaf? Ask Alexa. She even broadcasts online ratings and reacts to personal needs like time limit.

Home chefs, meanwhile, can also tap into the AI to control connected General Electric kitchen appliances—refrigerators, dishwashers, wall ovens, ranges, laundry machines—thanks to a recent partnership between GE and Amazon.

As of September, Alexa boasted more than 3,000 skills—triple the amount it had just three months earlier. Last week, the company added the ability for AT&T customers to dictate text messages to Alexa via an Echo or Echo Dot portable speaker.
