The platform that proposes recipes so you don’t have to think, previously known as Whisk, is now called Samsung Food and is powered by AI.
Samsung has acquired one of the most popular recipe apps on the Play Store, Whisk. It is an app that allows you to create shopping lists, plan menus and share recipes with other users. Whisk has more than 10 million downloads and a 4.7-star rating in the Google app store. Now this app is Samsung Food.
Whisk was founded in 2012 by Nick Holzherr, a British entrepreneur who appeared on the television show The Apprentice. The app is based on an algorithm that parses recipes and turns them into lists of ingredients, which can be purchased directly from the app or sent to other services like Amazon Fresh or Walmart Grocery.
Samsung Food was formerly Whisk. This application offers more than 160,000 recipes from different countries and categories, from starters to desserts, including soups, salads, meat, fish, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc. But what makes it special is that it uses artificial intelligence to adapt to your tastes, needs and preferences.
The app allows you to create your own gastronomic profile, where you can indicate your allergies, intolerances, dietary restrictions, favorite ingredients and skill level in the kitchen. From there, Samsung Food recommends personalized recipes that fit your profile and that you can filter by preparation time, difficulty, rating, season, or type of cuisine.
How does Samsung Food’s artificial intelligence work?
Samsung Food’s artificial intelligence is based on a machine learning system that analyzes user data and recipes to offer increasingly precise and satisfying suggestions. In addition, the app has a virtual assistant that guides you step by step in preparing the dishes, answers your questions and gives you practical advice.
Samsung Food also has other interesting features, such as the ability to scan the food you have in your fridge or pantry and obtain recipes that take advantage of it, thus avoiding waste. Or the option to create shopping lists with the ingredients you need for each recipe and send them directly to your mobile.
The app is available to download for free both on Samsung devices and on other Android or iOS phones. Also, if you have a Samsung smart appliance, such as a refrigerator or an oven, you can synchronize it with the app and control it from your mobile or with your voice. Of course, it is possible that it still appears with the old name.
