"Since the announcement of the Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker enabled with WeMo at the 2014 International CES (News - Alert) back in January, we have seen enormous interest in the slow cooker and its potential to bring the Internet of Things to life for consumers," said Ohad Zeira, director of product management for WeMo. "Thanks to our collaboration with Jarden Consumer Solutions, we are expanding the realm of the connected home, allowing people new ways to interact with their kitchen that makes life easier and better."

The Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker is the first smartphone-controllable slow cooker, which brings greater control and flexibility over life's unexpected moments. With the WeMo app, users can receive notifications, change the cooking time, adjust the temperature, turn the slow cooker off, or check the status of their meal quickly and easily from anywhere at any time.

"Perfect for busy moms or anyone else with a hectic schedule, the large-capacity 6-quart Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker has the same handy features as a egular slow cooker, but the addition of WeMo ensures you always come home to a perfectly cooked meal, no matter how late you are," said Alejandro Pe�a, President JCS USA.
