With limited time and countertop space, it’s hard to figure out how to prioritize kitchen appliances. What’s more valuable to you: Reheating, slow-cooking, or dehydrating?

On October 21, the cook-tech company June looks to provide a universal solution with its third-generation June Oven. The 12-in-1 smart appliance claims to be able to air fry, slow cook, grill, dehydrate, broil, bake, proof, roast, toast, warm, and reheat meals with computer precision.

This tech-forward appliance is a Smart convection oven with a streamlined touchscreen interface outside and a high-performance camera inside. The Smart Oven can identify hundreds of foods to start an automatic-cook program. June updated this third generation to make the cooking experience easier and more seamless.

“This new world has created a lifestyle change for many, bringing people back into the kitchen to cook or learn to cook for themselves and loved ones,” co-founder and CEO Matt Van Horn said in a press release. “June is at the forefront of this culinary shift because we take the guesswork out of cooking.”

Each of six heating elements can now be user-controlled, opening up endless cooking possibilities. This includes a rotisserie roaster, a meat/veggie griller, and a stone-fired pizza add-on element. There’s also zone cooking, which enables the in-oven camera to detect where food is placed, focusing heating elements only in those areas to ensure a faster, more energy-efficient cooking prep.

The new oven looks sharp as well, arriving in high-quality aluminum with added guard rails on the top heating elements, new convection fan motors to reduce vibration and sound, and a new chip to improve connectivity. The June Oven is synced to over 400 Smart recipes created by professional chefs. Use the June app (Apple Store or Google Play) to access these recipes as well as to remotely preheat and adjust cook time and temp from anywhere. You can even keep an eye on what’s cooking with live video and get Smart alerts for mealtimes.

The third-generation June Oven will launch with three bundles ranging from $599 to $999, depending on membership options and add-on accessories like the pizza and grill kit. The June Oven opens for presale on Thursday, Oct. 21.

When it comes to Asian cuisine, there are several heavyweights. Chinese, Japanese cuisine, and Thai jump to mind, three major cooking styles that have crossed many oceans and created solid footings abroad. But what of the smaller nations and their unique culinary customs?
Burma is one of those Asian countries, roughly the size of Texas and wedged between Bangladesh to the west and Thailand and Laos to the east. It’s important to note that the nation also goes by the Myanmar name, depending on who you ask. Political turmoil over the last several decades has seen not only a tug-of-war regarding its national title but also a struggle to define itself. Generations of British colonialism faded into brutal military rule and several uprisings.
This is the land of large pythons and precious stones. Some 90% of the globe’s rubies come from Burma. Rice is Burma’s biggest export and the landscape is dramatic, with towering mountain ranges, verdant jungles, and incredible old towers from bygone civilizations. Some 100 ethnic groups call Burma home, making the population of more than 53 million extremely diverse.
With tons of coastline, thanks to the adjacent Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea, Burma cuisine is unsurprisingly driven by seafood. This is the land of fish sauce and dried prawns. The national dish is mohinga, a breakfast dish made with rice noodles and fish soup. Inland, there's more in the way of pork and beef and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

The best hiking snacks to fuel your time on the trail
Consider these foods to have with you on your hike
Man eating a hiking snack

Warmer weather is here, and it's finally time to dust off the hiking gear that’s been hibernating in the back of your closet all winter, and make some hiking snacks that will get you ready to hit the trails. From getting fresh air and exercise to enjoying scenic vistas, hiking is one of the best ways to get outdoors and enjoy nature. But, whether you're taking on one of the most physically challenging hikes in the U.S. or embarking on a short and simple day hike, it's important to be prepared with the right equipment -- and that includes the best hiking snacks. 

If you're keeping your hike relatively short, there's no need to reach for the dehydrated meals. What you do want are snacks that won’t spoil, don’t take up a ton of space in your backpack, and help you stay energized and feel good all day long. That means you'll want a mix of carbohydrates and protein, both of which your body needs to perform at its best during the hike and recover properly once you're done.
