ckbk is the new sous chef in your connected kitchen

Sync your smart oven directly with the world’s finest cookbooks. ckbk has partnered with leading kitchen appliance company BSH (who make the well known brands Bosch, Siemens, NEFF, Thermador and Gaggenau) to provide you with world-class recipes that will sync directly with your smart kitchen appliances.

Ovens enabled with Home Connect can be controlled from your phone or tablet, and allow voice-controlled cooking and more.

By linking your ckbk and Home Connect accounts you’ll be able to send the time and temperature settings from thousands of cookbook recipes to your Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau, NEFF or Thermador oven automatically.

It’s easy to do: just select a recipe and, with a few taps on your screen, you can initiate and keep track of the cooking process. Pre-heating, roasting, broiling—it’s all built in and operates seamlessly.
