  • Publication number: 20200288909
    Abstract: A method for controlling a cooking device includes the following steps: recording an image of food; implementing a recognition of the recorded image of the food to determine the likelihood that the food corresponds to known foods. If a probability value exceeds a default threshold value, a cooking program associated with the known food is selected and specified to the cooking device. The probability value for the recorded image and the associated food is increased in response to a user subsequently starting the selected cooking program, and reduced in response to the user discarding the selected cooking program. A cooking device includes a primary control unit for controlling the cooking functions; a network interface with a second control unit, and a camera for recording images of the cooking space. The second control unit processes recorded images independently of the primary control unit and transmits them over the network interface.
