A Digital Hand for the Home Cook
Some people haven't mastered cooking, and that's fine. In fact, new kitchen gadgets have come out to make it easy to cook meals perfectly. Never serve a tough chicken breast or ruin a salmon filet again, thanks to the Pantelligent Smart Frying Pan, a device that does all of the timing for you. It checks the temperature of a cooking meal and tells you when it is done, which can be a godsend for cooks distracted by children and phone calls. It works with the Pantelligent app to give you the details you need, enabling meals to be cooked to perfection with minimal risk. This is only one example of how an unassuming kitchen necessity has been transformed to work with today’s digital technology.
The Internet of Things or IoT is a wonderful change coming to homes and kitchen applications. It seems like there are apps for anything that can add value to gadgets and appliances around the home. A Prep Pad is another tool and home gadget that gives you the nutritional details you want to make healthier meals and achieve health goals. A little tech help for healthy eating is a welcome and convenient addition to the kitchen.
Apps and IoT are helping your mother’s frying pan, food scale and other kitchen gadgets do more than one would have ever thought possible. It is not only these basics that have received a technological overhaul seemingly overnight. Samsung’s Family Hub Refrigerator transforms an unassuming refrigerator into a digital command center, communicating with family members while organizing groceries and tasks. Larger
kitchen appliances like refrigerators have went and become smart but the reach of smart technologies have penetrated further into the sophisticated development of a wide variety of kitchen appliances and gadgets. It appears that a smart tech revolution has finally occurred to the all things kitchen. As Stefano Marangoni, founder of Thingk, said:
“A couple of years ago, we understood that the home appliances market was not involved in the cultural revolution that, thanks to Steve Jobs, changed the hi tech world. So, we started to work to propose on this market segment high quality materials, very good design and an essential, modern user interface, using several types of detectors (touch, gesture etc).”
It is not only novel kitchen gadgets but other necessary appliances in the home that have been transformed. Whirlpool, a recognizable brand, makes smart appliances to save energy and improve efficiency with washer and dryers. It looks like smart tech will be making its way to every room in the house.
