Smart devices have become so much more ubiquitous over the years, not only in terms of their usefulness and the variety of devices available. Smartphones, smartwatches, smart TVs, and even smart refrigerators. However, today, we will be talking about smart ovens, and the Samsung Smart Oven in particular. One issue that some users of the Samsung Smart Oven have experienced is figuring out how to set the clock on Samsung Smart Oven.
For the most part, the method of setting the time on your Samsung Smart Oven is one size fits all (with some variations). Press the Clock icon on the control panel (either a clock symbol or the word clock), making sure not to hold the button for too long. Some models may require you to press the icon again to select AM or PM, though if it’s a 24-hour clock, you don’t need to do that. Next, adjust the time either using the directional pad or number pad (whichever is applicable). Once you have the right time, press either Clock or Start/Set to confirm. If it is not right, push Clear and you can start it over.
But what do you do if these steps don’t work for your Samsung Smart Oven? And are there other methods that can be used to adjust the time displayed?
How to Set Clock on Samsung Smart Oven
Another method that can be used where applicable are Samsung Smart Ovens that come equipped with a Smart Dial. To set the clock with this tool, you first have to make sure your smart oven is awake. This is done by either pushing or turning the dial knob to bring up the control panel. On this model, you change the smart oven’s clock by tapping the menu icon (the one with the three horizontal lines) on the control panel. You can then select options in the menu with the dial knob, which you use to select the “Set time” option. Finally, use the dial to change the time. Finally, push the dial knob to confirm the set time.
Is setting my clock on a Samsung Smart Oven important?
This is a fairly valid question, especially thanks to the fact that so many of us so often do not bother setting up the clock. This can be even more appealing in situations where the power goes out and the clock is reset, forcing you to redo or ignore it. When it comes to smart ovens, however, there is a stronger argument for making sure that the time is kept up to date. By having an accurate time, you ensure that the smart capabilities are able to help you use the oven more effectively.
Does a Samsung Smart Oven let you choose between standard time and military time?
Whether you prefer going by a 12-hour format or a 24-hour format will ultimately come down to preference (or even just convenience, if you deal with one or the other more often). Thankfully, if you prefer military time, there are Samsung Smart Ovens that are capable of displaying using that. For example, you can use a dial-based Samsung Smart Oven, as this allows you to choose one or the other. If you are not sure which Samsung Smart Ovens allow for this, check the features lists for the smart ovens you are looking at.
Does the clock reset on the Samsung Smart Oven if the power goes out?
As we discussed in the above section, some ovens, mainly older ones, had issues with the clock resetting due to a power outage. But since the clock is that much more important on a smart oven than it is on a regular oven, what happens if the power goes out?
What do smart ovens do?
One question a lot of people may have about smart ovens and other smart devices, is what the point of getting a smart oven is in the first place. The reason a person might want a smart oven is to get it connected to other smart devices in order to better integrate functions. You can connect a smart oven to your phone, devices like Echo Show and Google Home, smart dishwashers, smart microwaves, and more. In general, they make things a lot simpler than they would be, at least if you are someone who uses a lot of smart devices.
One nice feature of smart ovens is the self-cleaning feature, which ensures that you do not have to clean them all the time. Despite this, however, you should not rely exclusively on this feature. While the job done by the self-cleaning function is good, eventually, you should make sure you do a manual cleaning as well. Every 6-12 months, depending on how much you use the smart oven, will probably do the trick.
Are smart ovens worth buying?
As mentioned above, smart ovens are great for people who care about smartphone functionality, but if you do not really have many (or any) devices like these, a smart oven may not be a good fit for you. It’s also not likely to be a good fit for your first smart device if you are looking to get into having a smart home experience.
What kinds of smart ovens are there?
One thing that may be confusing for some is the fact that the term ‘smart oven’ refers to multiple kinds of appliances. There are two things that are commonly referred to as smart ovens: countertop smart toaster ovens and smart wall ovens. A smart oven that goes on your countertop is a nice supplemental appliance, but is also a great solution if you live in a place that does not have its own oven. It’s not quite as robust an option, of course, but in a pinch, they work great. A wall oven can also be a major time and monetary investment, so if you are unsure whether you want this kind of smart oven, such a major installation could ultimately not be worth it for what you want.
