PI’s Vice President, Jim Varney, was in attendance for Innit’s world premiere party at the newly opened, high-end kitchen and bath design store Pirch in SoHo NYC. The June 16th event, co-hosted by Innit and Pirch, showcased Innit’s revolutionary “integrated kitchen” technology in which smart appliances help take the guessing game (and wastefulness) out of food storage, preparation, and cooking. The limited guest list included media, industry insiders, friends, and team members.
“This was certainly a huge milestone for Innit” noted Jim. “What they have accomplished over just the last year is truly remarkable. We at PI are proud of our work together and are excited for their success.”
Innit’s systemic approach incorporates both hardware and software elements, and both were on display at the premiere. Modular components (seen below) are packed with cameras and sensors that automatically recognize the food in your fridge and monitor its freshness.
A prototype smart-oven (below) was being put to use, cooking food for guests at the party. The touchscreen on front doubles as a virtual “window” displaying images of your food cooking via cameras inside the oven.
A large table-top touchscreen (below) demonstrated Innit’s interactive app with a vast library of recipes from epicurious, Good Housekeeping, and the New York Times among others.
In a demo kitchen area inside Pirch (below), chefs prepared snacks with Innit’s smart ovens while guests previewed Innit’s interactive app on multiple tablets spaced around the counter.

Thanks for hosting a great party, Innit!
