June postscript: 5 unusual things you can make in an Internet-connected oven

Enlarge / The air-fried "churros" were delicious, but they tasted nothing at all like churros. (credit: Megan Geuss) Earlier this month, Ars  reviewed the June Oven , an Internet-connected, seven-in-one device that pushes the boundaries of the traditional toaster oven. Overall, I felt pretty positive about the June, especially the internal camera that allows you to watch your food cook (and share that view with others if you so desire). But I mostly tested more traditional foods in the oven. After all, the best way to tell if a new toaster oven is any good is to see if it makes your best recipes more deliciously/reliably than your old toaster oven. I tried out some new things, of course: I hardboiled eggs (good!), baked bacon (bad!), and dehydrated kale chips (yummy but energy intensive!). Before I send the June Oven back to its maker (in a box, with postage, not in a violent way of course) I wanted to test out five of the more unusual recipes that I found in June's app cookbook. The cookbook that's included in the June app is surprisingly well-populated with recipes specifically tailored to this IoT toaster oven, including a number of recipes that you'd never think to use a toaster oven for.

Thoughts on Xiaomi’s eighth anniversary and inaugural month as a public company

More posts by this contributor Consumer internet startups go mainstream outside of Silicon Valley Beyond Amazon and Alibaba: what’s next for e-commerce? Zara Zhang Contributor Share on Twitter Zara Zhang is an investment analyst with GGV Capital and a blogger about China, tech, and food. On August 16, Xiaomi celebrated the seventh anniversary of the release of its first phone, and the eighth anniversary of MIUI’s launch. As an early investor in Xiaomi in spring 2010 and a former board member of the company, I attended Xiaomi’s IPO in Hong Kong on July 9. I felt nostalgic and grateful, and marveled at how much Xiaomi — which seemed like a crazy idea to many back in January 2010 — has achieved over the past eight years. Xiaomi’s business model is not the easiest to appreciate if you have never tried its products. Its holistic value proposition doesn’t have an easy equivalent in the US. I frequently get asked questions about how the company works and what justifies its valuation for each round over the years. Here’s my take on the five most asked questions: Why is Xiaomi an “Internet company”? Isn’t it just a manufacturer of cheap smartphones with really low margin? At first glance Xiaomi may seem like a hardware company, which traditionally has lower gross margins.
