The kitchen is now a showroom for the latest and most advanced inventions by tech companies and it can be tough to keep up with everything.
Revolutionary devices in the cooking room range from storage and brewing equipment, to even artificial intelligence assistants for menus and recipes. The opportunities are endless, and they continue to keep advancing as we speak. Who knows what the kitchen will look like in another 10 years!
Here are some of the latest innovations rocking and spicing up the kitchen:
| Improvised Cooktops
Most of us still remember the electric coil stoves, which were a pain to clean and an eye-sore to boot. Now we have elegant, flat-surfaced electric cooktops that are easy to clean, are very efficient and look great.
White enamel, stainless steel, and glass-ceramic are the three most popular materials used for making their base plates with sizes from 30 to 36”.
Gas cooktops may be more expensive than some electric cooktops during the purchase, but in the long run, they tend to be more cost-effective. This is as a result of the cheaper cost of gas compared to that of electrically powered units.
Pay attention to burners, pan detection technology, self-cleaning ability, and warranty when buying a new induction range.
| Ergonomic Microwave
The advantages of owning an over the range microwave are enormous. From having more space on the countertop to cooking more food, you also can eliminate food odors from your kitchen.
Affordability, size, power, and extra features are some of the main features to consider when buying microwave ovens. Some other features you should look out for include a second racks heat sensor, defrost, popcorn, baked potato as well as frozen dinner options. These features might slightly increase the price of your desired unit above average.
| Top-notch Processing
Food processors are designed to make cooking easier and quicker. They process food with less effort compared to doing it manually.
Processed foods make cooking food entertaining and a lot easier. Bowl size, time-saving, ease of cleaning and efficiency in grinding solids are the requirements people look out for in the top food processors.
You can use the best food processors for slicing, shredding, chopping, mixing, pureeing, emulsifying, and even kneading of dough. They have come along way over the last number of years.
| Perfect Temperature
To ensure temperatures are kept in check within necessary requirements, a proper thermometer is needed. And, believe it or not, even thermometres have advanced over the years as the digital thermometer has become more popular.
Unlike analog thermometers, which need a few moments to display an accurate reading, digital thermometers can provide readings almost instantaneously. They can even be programmed to alert you when they reach a certain temperature.
Some of the best thermometers are specialized for reading high temperatures and that’s why it’s important to find a proper one instead of any regular kitchen thermometer.
| Coffee, Coffee, Coffee
One of the most important, and enjoyable, appliances in the kitchen, is the coffee maker. And they have changed so much over the last decade or so.
They are no longer a simple machine that can just make a pot of coffee. Now, they can make specialty coffees, turn the milk to foam, and make espresso size drinks. The Jura Impressa A9 is a popular – and advanced – coffee maker that has been flying off the shelves across the country.
| Refrigerators (inside and out)
Fridges have always been advancing from one year to the next (let alone one decade to the next). They took up such a large space in the room that people are always trying to find the perfect style and look to put in their kitchen.
New fridges are larger than ever, can do more than just keep items cold, and have a robotic look to them. By the time this article comes out there may be a new best-selling fridge on the market, so just be sure to do your research when buying an expensive fridge for your house.
And don’t forget about outdoor refrigerators for your backyard! These outdoor fridges have been growing in popularity over the last number of years and can come in handy if you like to entertain and spend lots of time outside.
