Smart Kitchen tops

In recent years, touchscreen technology has considerably transformed the meal preparation experience by adding a touch sophistication and modernity. Apart from improving kitchen aesthetics, modern kitchen appliances are utilising touchscreen technology to improve safety and efficiency. Smart Kitchen tops such as the Thermador Masterpiece Series Freedom Induction Cooktops not only add a sleek feel to your kitchen but also come with full-colour touchscreen user interface and state-of-the-art technology that allows it to detect pots and pans.

AI-Driven appliances

The world today is making a mad dash towards Artificial Intelligence and in kitchens, the sci-fi dream of having appliances seamlessly working together is finally becoming a reality. AI-driven gadgets substantially increase cooking efficiency and need less of our time and effort, a dream come true for the working class. Among the industry leaders in Kitchen AI is LG. Their InstaView ThinQ smart refrigerator with Amazon Alexa built-in is astonishingly clever. The fridge can suggest recipes based on the available ingredients, monitor expiration dates and purchase groceries. Its internal cameras also allow you to monitor the contents of your fridge through your smartphone. Samsung also offers the Family Hub smart refrigerator which has Bixby. This new generation of Samsung refrigerators has similar features as the InstaView ThinQ refrigerator and enhanced online delivery functionality and the ability to create voice-based profiles.

Refrigerators aren’t the only kitchen appliances that are getting an AI boost. The PHB920SJSS smart oven built by General Electric is powered by Geneva, intelligent software that can coordinate with Alexa, Amazon’s virtual assistant.

Smart appliances come in handy when delivering tasty and healthy dishes while also minimizing water and energy consumption. The smart gadget field is quite diverse.

The Instant Pot Smart WiFi (surpassed the multi cooker – our favourite product) is among the best selling smart appliances that are making their way into the kitchen. The pot allows you to start and continuously monitor the cooking process from anywhere through your smartphone. The pot also has Google Assistant Integration. One only needs to download the Instant Pot app which is available for Ios and Android and connect to your WiFi network to begin using its advanced features. The Instant Pot app also offers numerous recipes ranging from breakfast, kid-friendly, dessert recipes among others that can be executed on the device. The Cook Now button which is found alongside the cooking instructions automatically adjusts the setting of the pre-programmed pot to the required meal recipe and starts cooking.

As we head towards an exciting future it will be interesting to see what other tech advancements will be made in the kitchen. Future appliances and related technologies will probably make kitchens more userfriendly and safer.
