Your kitchen is the most significant room in your home. It’s the place you make memories. It is where you enjoy holiday meals, Christmas cookies, and 4th of July barbecues. The kitchen is the heart of the home.
Americans spend 1/3 of their time at home, in their kitchen. That equates to around two years in your lifetime. Since you are spending more time in this area of your home, you deserve nothing short of the best. That means it’s time to start investing in some smart appliances.
The Best Tech Appliances for a Smart Kitchen
If you are ready to take your home into the 21st century, check out the latest smart kitchen technology designed to save both water and energy.
Here are the top major kitchen appliances perfect for the ultimate smart kitchen:
Smart refrigerators: Gone are the days of sticky notes and magnets that aren’t strong enough to hold up the shopping list. With the smart technology in refrigerators, you can use the touch screen pad to write notes, create lists, and even look inside without opening the door—and you can do this from any mobile device or computer.
Smart cooking: That annoying kitchen timer on your stovetop is now obsolete with the latest cooking ranges. You can also count on your food being the perfect temperature every time. No more over or undercooking. Some smart stoves will even allow you to give specific instructions like, “turn the chicken in two minutes.”
Dishwasher: The technology in your smart dishwasher will not only ensure your dishes come out clean, but there are settings to control the water temperature, set shorter rinse cycles, and increase the time the fan dries instead of a heat cycle.
Smart Tech for Small Appliances for Your Kitchen
When it comes to your kitchen, it’s not just about the tech — it’s about the savings. Studies show that 13% of water is wasted from your home each month, resulting in millions of gallons of water being used for no reason. Smart technology in your kitchen can reduce this waste by nearly 10%, and scientists are identifying ways to become even more efficient and eliminating waste to almost nothing.
As technology continues to advance and moves into your kitchen, the tech possibilities seem endless. Here are five of the most sought-after smart kitchen devices you can install in your home.
Smart faucets feature a great no-touch faucet technology that allows you to turn on the water without touching the handles. Just wave your hand in front of the sensor, and the water turns on. You can even set them to be voice-activated with your home’s virtual assistant.
2. Pot Fillers
Pot fillers are faucets installed above your range to make filling a pot of water safer and more efficient. Smart pot fillers, like smart faucets, work with the wave of your hand or verbal instruction. You can even specify exact amounts to fill with commands like, “Please fill the pot with a quart of water.”
3. Wi-Fi Coffee Makers
Unlike your “dumb” coffee maker, you can control your Wi-Fi coffee pot with any computer or mobile device. It also allows your virtual assistant to start your coffee with a voice command. You can begin a fresh pot or turn off the coffee pot from anywhere.
4. Wi-Fi Air Fryers
Utilizing the same technology as the coffee maker, you can control your Wi-Fi air fryer with your phone, laptop, or other mobile devices. You can set the temperature and cook time and even have it remind you to clean it.
5. Smart Crockpots
This innovative technology allows you to prepare your favorite one-pot dish and control it from anywhere. Forgot to turn on the crockpot before leaving for work? No problem. Your smart crockpot can have dinner done by the time you get home.
