We know $1,500 is steep, really steep for a smart oven — it's about as much as a new laptop, after all — so could the June Oven possibly be worth every penny of its exorbitant price? I can confidently say yes. After thoroughly testing many foods in this "intelligent convection oven," I admittedly can't imagine life without one. In fact, I'm downright tempted to buy myself one for home. I bust this thing out every chance I can, because it makes cooking feel exhilarating and fun.
Some critics may say it takes the skill out of cooking and offers too much automation, but I disagree. The June Oven permits you to become a perfectionist. It teaches you the importance of temperature, timing, and a watchful eye. The technology is damn near immaculate, setting you up for nothing but successful outcomes. With each delicious creation I make, I become even more curious to discover what else can I try in the June Oven. Similar to the Instant Pot, it's one of those appliances that inspires you to cook more while simultaneously making your life way, way easier. So what are all the shiny features (aka reasons) you might want to set yourself up on a trial run? Take a look . . .
