We still don’t have robot maids to cook meals for us, sadly. On the bright side, we’re closer to giving our kitchens a futuristic feel. If you’re interested in having a smart kitchen (and cooking more efficiently), here are a few awesome gadgets and appliances you should order today:
Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator
Ever fancied a fridge that you can control remotely as well as one that tells you when stored food is about to expire? The Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is a dream come true.
Not only does it come with a huge touchscreen (that acts as its control center) but it also has a camera feed with a drag-and-drop expiration tracker. This feature also comes in handy whenever you’re buying groceries and haven’t made an inventory of food you have stored. You can even set different temperatures for various zones within the refrigerator.
Drop Connected Smart Kitchen Scale
This interactive scale gets you baking like a pro in no time. It does this by guiding you through the steps to prepare hundreds of varied baked goodies, a pretty impressive feature in itself.
Aside from saving you the trouble of using a messy bunch of measuring cups, this smart kitchen scale will alert you when you’ve added enough ingredients. It can also adjust a recipe’s proportions in case you’re running low on one crucial ingredient.
Quirky Egg Minder
You don’t always need complex technology to manage your smart kitchen better. Sometimes, all you need is a device that counts if you still have enough good eggs to cook for breakfast. That’s what this one does.
The Quirky Egg Minder counts how many eggs you store and tells you which ones are about to go bad. It does this by using LED lights and a companion app for convenience.
Brew your morning cup of joe on demand without getting out of bed with the Smarter Coffee Machine. Because it can be connected to your tablet or smartphone, you could be brewing coffee remotely anytime.
It supports IFTTT recipes, too, so it’ll be easy to customize the time when you’d want the machine to start brewing.
Amazon Echo/Google Home
Before reading any further, you might want to check out our verdict in the battle of smart speakers. So why would you need one of these devices in your new smart kitchen? The reason is efficiency.
You can take/make calls, play your favorite Spotify playlist, or even turn on/off other smart home devices all while kneading dough with either gadget. That right there is multi-tasking made easy.
Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker with WeMo
Imagine cooking dinner without being in front of the casserole. That’s the best thing about having a smart cooker.
The Crock-Pot Wemo-Enabled Slow Cooker affords you this convenience by letting you adjust its heat and other settings via SMS. And because it comes with the WeMo, one of the best smart plugs around, you can heat up your dinner’s main course just as you leave the office for home.
In this day and age, your kitchen doesn’t have to stay “dumb” while the rest of the house gets smarter. With the right gadgetry, you could have a smart kitchen way before anybody decides to invent robot butlers.
