What Are Smart Kitchens and How Do They Work?
If you’re a fan of modern technology, you’ll know how easy it is to integrate items with internet connectivity into your daily life. Thankfully, with the advent of smart kitchens, your love of technology doesn’t have to be kept out of the kitchen. Here are some ways in which a smart kitchen could make your life easier.
So, what is a smart kitchen?
A smart kitchen is a kitchen that contains multiple devices with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or Internet of Things (commonly called IoT) connectivity. This means that you don’t have to be physically in your kitchen to control your smart kitchen devices. In addition to being able to remotely control your kitchen devices, you’ll be able to monitor any activity in your kitchen remotely, giving you an extra level of peace of mind as well as increased convenience.
How can smart kitchens make my life easier?
Whether you love spending all your time in the kitchen and want to invest in more high-tech gadgets to help with your cooking experiments or you want to spend as little time cooking as possible, there’s smart technology out there that can help you to achieve your aims.
1. Smart kitchen items can be a huge time-saver
If you’re someone who is constantly on the go, a smart kitchen could be an amazing way to help make your life more streamlined and less full of chores. You can easily control them through a mobile phone app or through an Alexa or other smart home assistant device. You can even set timers so your lunch or dinner will be ready as soon as you come in from work. It’s possible to find a handy rice cooker or air frier that comes with a smart timer and an auto shut-off function so you can cook whatever you want, whenever you want - and it’s healthy, too!
2. Smart kitchens mean easy access to recipes
Anyone who is fond of home baking knows the pain of being in the middle of baking bread or cookies with hands covered in dough and flour and then realizing you need to check your recipe’s details in your cookbook or on your phone. In a regular kitchen, this either involves calling over a friend or family member to check your recipe for you, or, if you’re on your own, stopping baking, washing your hands, checking the recipe, and then starting up again.
In a smart kitchen, you won’t have to worry about how you’re going to check your recipes even when you’re busy baking. Because smart kitchen gadgets have Wi-Fi connectivity, they work with a wide range of voice assistants. You can simply ask your Cortana, Alexa or whatever voice assistant you use to read the recipe to you - problem solved!
3. Smart kitchens are perfect for coffee lovers and night owls
If you’re someone who feels like you need a cup of coffee in order to make your first cup of coffee of the day without creating kitchen chaos, a smart kitchen could be the answer to your morning problems. By investing in a smart, programmable coffee machine, you can rest assured that you’ll wake up to ready-made coffee each morning. There’s no need to spend extra money on takeout coffees when you can have top-quality coffee made for you each morning in the comfort of your own home without even having to completely wake up. Many smart coffee machines come with a wide range of programmable functions, which means that you can choose to have an espresso, cappuccino, latte or whatever else you want ready-made just for you. You can even find smart coffee machines that are compatible with voice assistants.
4. Never run out of ingredients again
Almost everyone knows the annoyance that comes with wanting to make a certain recipe, only to open your fridge door and find out that you don’t have some of the key ingredients you need. One of the easiest ways to ensure you never find yourself in this situation again is by investing in a smart fridge. Many smart fridges come with inbuilt functions where you can store ingredients lists, recipe ideas and other useful family memos all in one place. You can then check these when you’re away from your home by looking at the connected app on your phone or tablet.
Why not start investing in a smart kitchen today and see how much time and effort it could save you?
