KitchenAid has got an extremely popular line of stand mixers, and it's probably noticed that a lot of its customers are interested in using smart displays and speakers in the kitchen to cook. So at CES 2019 it announced that it's gone and made its own.
The KitchenAid Smart Display is a Google Assistant-powered smart display that sports a 10-inch screen in an Amazon Echo Show-like wedge. However, it's got several advantages specifically aimed at amateur chefs.

The first is a partnership with KitchenAid sister-company Yummly, which will give you access to all of its visual recipes. You can also sign up for Yummly Pro, which will give you step-by-step recipes from influential chefs like Carla Hall, Richard Blais, Jet Tila and Daniel Holzman.
Then there's IPX5 water resistance, which means your KitchenAid Smart Display will be able to survive splashes of water from your sink. In fact, KitchenAid points out that you'll be able to wash and clean your device with faucet water. So don't worry about getting flour or eggs or whatever else your cooking on your KitchenAid.
Unlike the Google Home Hub, there is a camera so you can video chat via Duo while you're chopping veggies. And you can also enjoy video streaming services like HBO, Netflix and YouTube while you're waiting for that chicken to roast.
We don't have word on pricing or availability yet. It's also unclear if it'll be launching in the same fun colors that KitchenAid's stand mixers come in so that you can having a matching set. But that could emerge this week at CES 2019.
