Today, SideChef announced at Smart Kitchen Summit Europe that they will be launching a partnership with Swiss appliance company V-ZUG. They will provide smart software behind V-ZUG’s connected appliance lineup, providing cooking tools integrated into the brand’s products.

“We chose to work with V-ZUG because they have so much advanced, cutting-edge technology on the market, as well as unique products (like their connected oven),” said SideChef Founder and CEO Kevin Yu.

Director of Business Development for V-ZUG Manuel Faeh told us that they were excited for the SideChef partnership, which will add a smart digital layer to their products. “Devices are constantly adapting and changing,” he said. They hope that the partnership with SideChef will help them to do that.

“One unique part of this integration is the fact that we’re launching in China,” Yu said. Though the majority of SideChef’s staff is based in Shanghai, this will be their first product partnership to launch in Asia. And it’s just the beginning. “5000 of our 10k+ recipes are fully orderable through Amazon Fresh in the U.S.,” said Yu. “And we eventually want to build that out in China as well.”

SideChef is also integrated with smart devices from appliance companies LG and Sharp. In fact, they announced their partnership with appliance company Sharp at last year’s Smart Kitchen Summit Japan.
