5 Smart Appliances To Update Your New Kitchen

Whether you are building a new home or renovating your current one, you have more options than ever to incorporate smart technology in the kitchen to make your life easier. While not quite the space-aged dream kitchen of old cartoons, today’s appliances include the latest technology to help you get meals to the table in a fraction of the time. Here are just five of the smart appliances you may want to add to your new kitchen design.

LCD-Screen Refrigerator

No longer content to keep your perishables cold, today’s state-of-the-art fridges are more like a personal assistant. These appliances can keep track of your grocery list, your calendars, and even messages. You can also control the temperature settings through your phone to keep your food fresher for longer.

Smart Oven

Have you ever had an oven that could not keep a consistent temperature? You won’t have to worry about that anymore with a smart oven. These appliances can monitor and control temperatures, and some have an interior camera to allow you to check on dinner from your phone.

Coffeemaker

Programmable coffeemakers have been around for a while, but today’s smart coffeemakers can adapt to your brewing preferences to always make the perfect cup of coffee. Out of beans? No worries; your coffeemaker can order your coffee for you, thanks to compatibility with other smart devices.

Microwave

It can be frustrating to know how to modify cooking temperatures, but the latest models have technology that can scan the barcode of products and automatically adjust cooking times and temperatures for the best results. Some models can even download cooking instructions for your recipes.

Cooktop

Say goodbye to traditional knobs on your stove. The newest smart cooktops offer finger touch or swipe controls, much like you use on your smart phone and induction cooking for more even heating and shorter cooking times.

Many of these smart appliances are Bluetooth compatible and can be controlled by an app on your phone. You should talk with your home builder, interior designer, or kitchen remodeler to see what else is on the horizon to get the latest smart technology for your home.
