Features of Curd Maestro™ Family Hub™ Refrigerator
Using the Curd Maestro™, one needs to boil and cool the milk and mix the curd culture manually while Curd Maestro™ does the most crucial part of the job – fermentation. It will not only ferment the curd but will store it too. Curd Maestro™ makes curd with the same consistency each time and eliminates all the hassle of curd making in different weather conditions. Curd Maestro™ enables curd preparation in 6.5 to 7.5 hours – 6.5 hours for soft curd, 7.5 hours for thick curd.
Simplifying Connected Living
The built-in View Inside Camera on the Curd Maestro™ Family Hub™ allows users to take a quick peek inside the refrigerator with a multi-finger swipe down on the Family Hub™ screen, without opening the refrigerator. You can also use the SmartThings app to see what’s inside the refrigerator remotely, even while you are out shopping. The refrigerator allows you to create shopping lists, food memos, digitally label food with expiration dates and set reminders.
Strengthening Family Connections
Curd Maestro™ Family Hub™ keeps the family more closely connected and organized with its built-in screen that can be used as a whiteboard, memo or even a photo album. Family members can also make calls and share photos and notes with each other through the refrigerator. They can even share and update calendars through the Family Hub™ app (synced with Google, MS365).
