With multi-room music, you can stream music on compatible Echo devices in different rooms (as well as audio books, radio stations, news briefs, etc.) Ask Alexa to check your calendar, weather, traffic, and sports scores, control your compatible smart lights, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and even request an Uber or order a pizza!

New features include altitude adjustment, cooking indicator and a steam release reset button. Developed with the latest 3rd generation technology with an embedded microprocessor, it monitors the pressure and temperature, keeps time, and adjusts heating intensity and duration to ensure it always cooks to perfection.

A perfectly cooked meal requires a perfect temperature reading. Whether cooking from the family cookbook or simply trying something new, getting that accurate and exact temperature will always get you the best results.

Equipped with dual-probe technology, you have the option of using two meat probes for reading internal temperature of two meats or use one as an oven probe that will accurately read its surrounding temperature. All of the preset temps can be reset to your desired tastes
