The high-end, high-tech Watch & Touch Oven by Italian brand Candy comes with a full-touch door display that allows you to learn easy multi-step cooking from the pre-loaded video recipes that can be viewed on the door of the oven and there is even the option to pre-set the oven to cook the recipes at the end of the videos! The touch screen makes cooking so convenient for users; beginners can compile their personal cookbooks in the system and learn to cook up a storm. There is also a camera on the inside of the oven for a high resolution close-up view of how the food is cooking.
