11 January 2024

The food and beverage technology product news coming out of this year’s CES is no less impressive than in previous years with products ranging from a smart cooker that uses Ohmic heating for quick food prep to a new refrigerator that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and image recognition to tells consumers what they can make based on the ingredients they have on hand.

Follow along with Electronics360 to see some of the food and beverage technology debuting at CES 2024.

According to its developers, the Sevvy Smart Cooker, which is a CES 2024 Best of Innovation award winner in the home appliance category, uses 90% less energy to cook than traditional ovens and cookers. This is accomplished via integral heating wherein electrical currents are passed through the food instead of heating the food from the outside, which is what occurs with conventional ovens.


Frazy, a custom beverage startup, has debuted at CES 2024 what it calls a “world’s first” robotic beverage machine that delivers café and bar quality beverages in the home with just the push of a button.
