A smart home is something every Rhode Island homeowner has heard of. But have you been taking advantage of the many ways that technology can make your home smarter? A good place to start is your kitchen.
There are many exciting and new appliances on the market to help get you organized and keep your kitchen running smoothly. Here are five appliances that can help you work smarter in the kitchen:
1. Interactive Refrigerators
Manufacturers such as Samsung have developed a smart refrigerator that’s interactive for the entire family. Not only will you be able to keep food cool at just the right temperature, you can keep track of expiry dates. You can also use the LCD screen on the outside of the fridge as a family calendar and message center and to watch the latest episode of your favorite television show.
Another benefit of a smart fridge is that it’s easy to plan meals. You can check the contents of your fridge no matter where you are using the smartphone app, stocking up on ingredients for a meal before you arrive home.
2. Smart Ovens
A smart oven will make your life much simpler. No more opening the oven door to check if chicken is roasted to the right temperature. The oven does it for you! Smart ovens are also great for baking, making it easy for you to control the temperature and achieve perfect results when making pastry and pies. Even better, you can use the smartphone app to control and regulate oven functions when you’re not at home. This means that you can preheat the oven when you’re on the way home, making it faster for you to get dinner on the table.
Do you always forget to put coffee, paper towels, and other kitchen supplies on your shopping list? Using WiFi connected buttons, you can easily and quickly reorder these much-used items and have them shipped directly to your doorstep. Many manufacturers are even integrating these handy virtual buttons into appliances, ensuring you don’t run out of dish or laundry soap.
4. WiFi Coffee Makers
Mornings are easy when you let your smart appliance brew coffee for you. Indulge in a remote coffee making system, such as the Behmor Brewer, and let the smartphone app control the brewing process. It’s convenient and easy to preset the controls so coffee is ready for you when it’s time to start your day.
With a bigger budget you can take coffee brewing to a whole new level by investing in advanced smart kitchen technology, such as GE’s French door refrigerator with Keurig’s integrated brewing system. Use Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to let the fridge know when it’s time to start heating water for your cup of coffee.
5. Convenient Meal Prep
Make meal prep easier with the sous vide smart appliance. The sous vide process is all about vacuum sealing food in a bag and slow cooking in a hot water bath. A smartphone app not only has some great recipes for you to try, it also allows for precise control of the temperature so you can cook fish, meat, and vegetables with chef quality results.
Manufacturers of smart kitchen appliances continue to come out with new and innovative ideas to make your life more convenient and easy. Renovate or upgrade your kitchen with smart technology. Call a HomeAdvisor appliance contractor in Rhode Island.
