The Second-generation Midea Low-carb Rice Cooker - Midea Makes IoT Technology Applied to Thousands of Families

FOSHAN, China, April 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 15, Midea officially released their new product - the second-generation Midea low-carb rice cooker. This is the combination of Jimei's low-carb technology and IoT technology. It is the only "low-carb rice cooker" authorized by the CHEARI (Beijing) Certification & Testing Co., Ltd. Apart from 54 leading international patented technologies, this product also has the unique rice holder technology. Through low-carb processes, such as scouring and boiling the rice as the tide, and scouring the sugar of rice within water using unique rice holder with hundreds of holes, it can reduce the reducing sugar of rice by up to 50% and increase resistant starch by about 23%, which always meets the high-end needs of users for health and wellness.

IoT is deeply integrated into people's various life scenarios at an unstoppable pace, becoming the focus of world attention. Midea International Group is taking IoT + OTA upgrade technology as the core, accelerates product innovation, turns IoT from vision to reality, and lets the world enjoy the smart home era. At present, Midea, owning Midea low-carb rice cooker, Xiaomei smart speaker and other smart home appliances, based on IoT, big data, AI and other technologies, will continue to provide users with four smart scenario services of safety, health, convenience, and pleasure.

In fact, as early as 2014, Midea established the Smart Home Research Institute to fully implement the strategy of "dual intelligence", build an open, secure, and interconnected AIoT ecosystem by cooperating with upstream and downstream partners in the industrial chain based on IoT, create the largest AIoT open platform in the smart homes, achieve cross-brand and cross-category terminal interconnection. In this way, more intelligent hardware and application services can be seamlessly connected, thereby building a more complete and open IoT ecosystem.

Thanks to IoT technology, Midea's high-end product line COLMO series rice cookers have achieved smart identification of common rice varieties on the market, adjusting different heating curves to the rice types and completing rice recognition, measuring, washing, soaking, water adding and cooking and other operations with one click. At the same time, the smart rice cookers manufactured by Midea currently can support online "software cloud upgrades", enabling ordinary smart rice cookers already purchased to be upgraded to low-carb rice cookers. Resources can be shared through the interconnection of Midea's IoT big data platform and other smart devices. Take blood glucose monitoring as an example. Midea teamed up with D-nurse, the professional blood glucose meter company, to monitor blood glucose data in real time and intelligently recommend healthy recipes according to the changes in the user's blood sugar. Besides, in order to improve the taste of rice, the company also increased the rice cooking curve from more than 10,000 to more than 20,000, achieving breakthrough experience of hardware + software + contents.

To further enrich the IoT ecosystem and satisfy people's imagination of smart life, Midea's IoT platform has gathered more than 100 heavyweight partner companies, with its ecosystem covering many fields such as AI technology, IoT security, smart hardware, content resources, and Internet services. The company will provide users with improved product experience, build rich family life scenarios, provide malleable services, and work together to promote the evolution of the AIoT ecosystem by complementing with its partners and implementing the connection of the full value chain.
