There are literally hundreds of different kitchen gadgets and this article will cover the best ones that you absolutely must have in 2019.
1. The Smart Fridge
Yes, the fridge has become one of the smartest gadgets in most homes, in particular the Family Hub 3 model by Samsung. This fridge has tons of features that greatly improves its ease of use. For example, this fridge has an internal camera so that you can actually see what is inside of it, when you’re not home, you can view the internals of your fridge through the camera via the SmartThings Samsung app on your smartphone. So, if you’re in the supermarket and you’re trying to remember if you have butter or not, you can easily view your fridge through the app and see if there’s butter. If there isn’t any, you can simply buy it at the grocery. The fridge also has a touch screen tablet that is built into it so that you can access different recipes and even order various ingredients needed for those recipes. The fridge is even voice activated so you can do all of this without lifting a finger.
2. The Smart Oven
Next is the Samsung Smart oven that you can also control through your smart phone and you can use the app to pre-heat the oven before you reach home. This makes preparing meals much faster since you don’t have to wait for the oven to pre-heat. This can help you to save up to 20 minutes which is essential with our busy lifestyles.
3. Hood & Hob
If you’re like most people, you often forget to put on the extractor fan while you’re cooking to remove any smells. This often leads to unwanted smells being around for many days which is quite annoying. Thankfully, with the connected hood and hob, they work together and the fan automatically turns on once it determines you’re cooking. The fan is also automatically placed on the correct level. This greatly helps to reduce smells from cooking throughout the home as well as prevents damage to your home from smoke and moisture.
4. The Smart Dishwasher
The smart dishwasher is a definite must-have, not just because it makes washing the dishes easy, but how it detects when something has gone wrong. This dishwasher has sensors inside of it which determine when there are any leaks or blockages. Once it detects there is a problem, it has an alert which lets you know something is wrong. These smart dishwashers even cut off the water so that flooding doesn’t occur in your kitchen and home.
5. Cabinet Plus
Most people have tons of jars and food packages that are long expired lurking in the corners of their kitchen cupboards. These expired food items are typically ignored for a long time since they are out of sight.
However, by having all of these hidden items, you’re wasting a lot of space in your kitchen cabinets and wasting a lot of food. However, with the Cabinet plus, this actually has mechanised shelves that moves items in the back shelves to the front, with a simple button. As a result, all of your food items are easily accessed, which makes it more likely you’ll use them before they go bad.
6. Multifunctional Hot Water Tap & Sink
If you have a very small kitchen, then you’re probably looking for different ways to make the most use of your space in a creative way, for example custom glass splashbacks. But more importantly, the multifunctional sink is actually created to be able to fit a wide variety of spaces and attachments. For example, it can fit colanders, chopping boards, ice buckets etc. As a result, you can use the space for a sink as well as a work space for you to prepare your food. In addition to this multifunctional sink, it also comes with a hot water tap that ensures you get hot water whenever you need it, on demand. This saves you a lot of time and effort since you never need to have to put water to boil in a kettle again.
7. USB Charging Tray
There are now so many gadgets in most homes that it can be extremely difficult to find the right charger for your phone or other device. Thankfully, there is the USB charging tray which is in the form of a wooden tray that you can place within your kitchen drawer or any drawer for that matter. As a result, you now have as many charging ports as you need, whenever you need them.
