You must have WiFi and a smart phone with the Tovala mobile app to set up your oven. The Tovala Smart Oven is only compatible with a 2.4 GHz WiFi network (you probably have it—it’s part of most WiFi provider’s standard WiFi packages). Once it's set up, you can use the controls on the front of the oven for basic functionality without WiFi. If you want to scan, cook Tovala Meals, and communicate with the Tovala App, WiFi is required. But don't worry, we keep things easy. Connecting your oven to WiFi only takes a few minutes.
