The Electrolux Taste Platform: Meeting the Needs of Today’s Digital-Savvy Asian Consumer

Asian consumers are adopting a mobile-first approach in all aspects – even for cooking and eating.

The Taste Platform is an ecosystem designed for the digital-native, which will evolve over time and feature not only appliances, but other value-added services and partnerships as well.

“It has always been our ambition to enable and inspire all our users at every stage of their cooking journey. This partnership with Electrolux is a breakthrough in the smart kitchen domain as we converge our expertise to elevate cooking experiences,” said Kevin Yu, Founder & CEO, SideChef.

Consumers who access ‘Recipe Finder Powered by SideChef’ within the Electrolux Life app will open up a whole new world of cooking – access to thousands of global recipes from SideChef’s database and Electrolux’s celebrity chefs, step-by-step video and photo guidance, voice assisted cooking and much more.

Future updates to the app will support additional countries and languages, integration with smart connected appliances, as well as a personalized experience to assist consumers in meal planning, shopping cart management, and grocery delivery.

Disrupting the Traditional: A Unique Partnership in the Making

Electrolux’s partnership with SideChef integrates forward-thinking technologies directly within the Electrolux Life app, making it easy for consumers to seamlessly access both Electrolux and SideChef content on one single app.

“At the heart of every RISE conference is our aim to connect entrepreneurs, investors and startups – and there is no better way to showcase this than the birth of a product on the back of a conference. We couldn’t be happier to celebrate the success of the launch of the Electrolux-SideChef partnership, and we look forward to more breakthroughs in this partnership,” says Nassim Amara, Partnerships Director at RISE.

The result is a unified user experience with a consistent and intuitive user interface, giving this unique partnership tremendous competitive advantage and differentiation in the market.
