With the kitchen being the heart of the home, a significant amount of our time is spent preparing meals and eating as a family. With modern families becoming easily time poor, the rise of smart kitchen appliance technology aims to dramatically reduce the hours we spend making food so that tedious tasks are simplified. Our advancing world now means we can cook with the help of our smartphones and brew perfect coffee in seconds. Below are some of the newest smart kitchen technologies to jazz up your space and save you the hassle!
1. Sous Vide
This is a relatively new device that takes the stress out of cooking meat. The sous vide experiments with vacuum sealing food and immersing it in a water bath kept at a very precise temperature. The sealing process ensures that no moisture is lost, and the water temperature ensures the food can’t overcook, resulting in perfectly tender meat the whole family will love.
2. Slow Cooker
They range in price and brands but all share the same purpose – making dinner a hell of a lot easier for the working parent. Basically, throw in dinner before you leave the house and come home to a perfectly slow roasted meal. The smart version of this product like the Wemo wifi-enabled slow cooker means that you can adjust the temperature and turn the appliance off when finished all through a connected app.
3. NutriBullet Balance Smart Blender
We all know and love the trusty blender that is the NutriBullet. And now, with advanced technology, comes the smart version which connects it to Bluetooth. It has an app which allows users to update their grocery lists and check all the nutritional information in their favourite smoothies.
4. Food Saver
Every smart kitchen needs a food saver. The appliance works like vacuum bag sealer and takes the air out of the packaging so your leftovers won’t go bad as fast. This will be great for your pocket in the long run as the lifespan of your food will be increased, saving you from waste and extra spending.
5. Smart Refrigerator
Advancing technology continues to surprise us and a refrigerator is no exception. More than a food storage space, you can now set expiration notifications so your food never goes bad, plan a meal based on the available ingredients in the fridge and see the groceries inside. Talk about a time and money saver!
6. Behmor Connected Coffee Maker
What better way to brew your coffee than by asking Alexa to do it for you! This appliance is compatible with Amazon Echo and will respond to a voice command. You can also control the temperature with an app on your phone – being a barista has never been easier!
7. Drop Scale
The perfect accessory for a smart kitchen is the drop scale which makes the process of measuring food a breeze. It’s easier and faster than traditional measuring methods and can make following even the most complicated recipes less intimidating. It also reduces clean-up time since you can just place all your ingredients in one bowl. The connected app will tell you how much or little you need of each ingredient once placed on the scale.
