LG’s Patented RFID Cookbook Tells Your Appliance How to Cook

LG is no stranger to mixing together patents and white goods and this time it’s trying to bridge the gap between recipes and those all-too-often underwhelming results.

One of its patents has just been granted, which outlines the idea of two RF tags that would offer food information and appliance specs, with a reader located on a terminal (say, an oven) that would attempt to bridge the gap between the two. This device would then connect to a server, which would return operating details for cooking that specified “food information” on your appliance of choice.
