Looking for a step-by-step process to connect your Toshiba countertop microwave to Alexa? This post is your go-to resource.
Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on buying a smart microwave oven. It will take your cooking hobbies to the next level.
Toshiba ML-EM34P(SS) smart microwave has a built-in WiFi feature that connects with your home network and lets you control everything remotely.
In this guide, we’ll focus on how to connect a Toshiba microwave to Alexa. But, before that, you have to connect your microwave to Wi-Fi.
So, I’ll divide this guide into two parts- the process of connecting your microwave with a Wi-Fi network and then integrating it with an Alexa device.
How To Connect Toshiba Microwave To Wi-Fi
If you’ve already connected your microwave to the Wi-Fi network via the SmartHome app, you can skip this and jump into the setup process with Alexa.
Here is how to connect a newly bought Toshiba smart microwave to the Wi-Fi network and control every task on your smartphone.
1. Download “SmartHome” App
I don’t know which smartphone you have. If you have an iPhone, install the SmartHome app from the App Store, and if you have an Android phone, install the SmartHome app from the Google Play Store.
Note: The SmartHome app was formerly known as MSmartHome. So, don’t confuse it with a name. I have provided the download link below.
2. Create a SmartHome Account
If you already have a SmartHome account, choose “Login“; if you don’t, choose “Create Account“.
Once you tap the Create Account button, you’ll be asked to enter your email address or phone number. I advise you to sign up using your email address.
Enter your email address, tick the user agreement option, and tap on Send verification code. A six-digit verification code will be sent to your email address; enter that code to set up an account password.
3. Allow Access To Local Network
Now, the SmartHome app will ask for permission to access your local network to connect with Wi-Fi. Tap on Allow to proceed ahead.
4. Add Device
Next, plug your Toshiba microwave into the power outlet and tap on “Add device“. Ensure that your smartphone is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
5. Allow Location Permission
You must provide your location permission to connect with the Toshiba microwave oven. Tap on Allow While Using App. Next, allow Bluetooth access permission also.
6. Select Toshiba Microwave Oven
On the next screen, various devices that support the SmartHome app will be shown. Navigate to Toshiba and select Microwave Oven from the device list.
7. Select Microwave Model
Next, select your Toshiba smart microwave model from the list. I have an ML-EM34P(SS) Smart Countertop Microwave Oven, so I’ll tap on that.
8. Enter WiFi Password
Select the WiFi network name, enter the WiFi password to connect your microwave, and click Next.
9. Long Press Microwave WiFi Button
It’s the final step, and your microwave will be connected to the WiFi and ready to use via smartphone.
Press and hold the WiFi button on your Toshiba microwave for 3 seconds until you hear a Beep, and wait for a few seconds.
Your microwave will be listed in the device list; select it and proceed ahead. Boom! Your microwave is now connected to WiFi; now, you can control it with your smartphone.
How To Setup Toshiba Microwave To Alexa
I’m assuming you’ve followed all the above steps correctly and that your microwave functions properly with the SmartHome app.
It’s time to connect your Toshiba microwave to Alexa to control the cooking with voice commands.
Follow this step-by-step process to set up your microwave with Alexa:
1. Open the Alexa App
If you have an Echo device at home, you must have installed the Alexa app on your smartphone. So, I’m skipping the process of installing the Alexa app on Android or iPhone.
Go to the apps drawer and launch the Alexa app on your smartphone. Ensure your smartphone is connected to the same WiFi network with which the Toshiba microwave is connected.
2. Go to Skills & Games
Tap on More> Skills & Games and type Toshiba iMicrowave in the search box. Enable the Toshiba iMicrowave skill.
3. Login With SmartHome
You must log in with your SmartHome username and password to integrate your Toshiba microwave to Alexa.
Enter the SmartHome username and password and click on login, and Alexa will automatically discover the connected devices.
4. Finish Setup
Alexa will discover the microwave; if it fails to discover it automatically, you can add it manually.
That’s all, my friend! Your microwave is now ready to take voice commands. Just say, “Alexa, microwave for 5 minutes,” and your microwave will automatically start functioning.
Toshiba Microwave Alexa Voice Commands
Congratulations, your Toshiba microwave is now integrated with the Amazon Echo device. Try these voice commands to take your cooking hobby to the next level:
- Alexa, microwave for 5 minutes.
- Alexa, pause the microwave.
- Alexa, stop the microwave.
- Alexa, reheat my pizza.

- Alexa, 2 minutes high power on the microwave.

You can change the microwave time according to your needs. Enjoy a smart cooking.
Toshiba ML-EM34P(SS) smart microwave supports Amazon Echo devices, and you can control your device with Alexa voice commands. I have explained the step-by-step process to set up this microwave oven with Alexa.
