Smartphones, smart TVS, and smart ovens?
Yes, the technology boom has reached the kitchen and you may be surprised by what’s available.
Almost everything you can do in the kitchen can be made easier by the appliances and other gadgets that are on the market today.
Let’s take a look at the latest in kitchen technology.
Whirlpool is well-known for their kitchen appliances and they’ve recently acquired an app called “Yummly,” that locates recipes for you based on your likes and dislikes.
It also takes your skill level and how much time you have into account when choosing the recipes.
Yummly 2.0 can be integrated with Whirlpool’s smart refrigerators, taking an inventory of what’s in the fridge and ordering staples you’re out of.
It can also send instructions to smart microwaves and smart ovens, too.
The Yummly 2.0 app can actually let your refrigerator know that your recipe calls for a cup of water and the refrigerator will have the water ready when you’re there with your cup.
There are also smaller gadgets that have been given a tech-upgrade to make your life in the kitchen easier.
One of the appliances that many people have in their homes is a coffee maker.
This one adds a whole new level of convenience, however.
The Behmor Connected Customizable Temperature Control Coffee Maker is compatible with Alexa and has an app for your phone, too.
You can have a freshly-brewed cup of joe waiting for you when you get out of bed and all you need is your voice.
With your app, you can even control the brewing temperature and the pre-soak time.
The June Intelligent Oven is a convection oven that uses a camera to observe the food you’re cooking and then determines how to cook it best.
All you have to do is input the type of food you’re making and the oven does the rest.
You don’t even have to set the temperature or set a timer.
Feel like you should check on your dinner but don’t want to get off the couch?
No problem – you can use the camera to watch your food cook via an app.
It’s even big enough to roast a whole chicken or to bake a casserole in an 11×16 inch dish.
Smart kitchen scale
The Wireless Perfect Bake Pro Smart Kitchen Scale and Recipe App will revolutionize the way you measure ingredients for your recipes.
The scale syncs with the recipe app on your phone or tablet and as you pour your ingredients, a virtual bowl on the scale’s screen fills up, letting you know exactly when to stop.
One of the most unique features is that it can scale recipes according to different serving sizes, baking dish sizes, and cake pan shapes.
Where will everything go?
Once you start collecting all of these cool new gadgets, you may need some extra storage.
