Cooking With Smart Kitchen Appliances

News & Trends

Voice-activated smart home hubs are pretty handy when your own hands are covered in flour or stuffed into oven mitts. Whether dictating recipes from your favorite food bloggers or quickly converting teaspoons to pints, voice-activated digital assistants are ideal sous chefs.


Kohler has updated their Sensate kitchen faucet. This smart faucet has voice-activated technology that will turn water on and off on command. It will also dispense the exact amount of water you need for a recipe without waste. Use the KOHLER Konnect app to monitor and track your water usage. You can even receive alerts that will detect unusual usage. If your hands are dirty, you can either tell the faucet to turn on with your voice or motion activate it without ever touching faucet handles.


While getting the correct water measurement, you can trust Kohler’s smart faucet, but for baking if you don’t use exact measurements, your pie or cake could turn out to be a disaster, which is why a kitchen scale is essential. Drop’s connected scale makes baking easy for newbies guiding you through recipes on your iPhone or iPad, ingredient by ingredient. If you want to double the recipe, a clever feature in the app will automatically change the amount of ingredients proportionally. Keeping you from fumbling with measuring spoons and focused on enjoying the baking process.


Baking is best when you can precisely control heat and airflow, providing just the right cooking environment for everything from Cornish hens to cherry pie to butternut squash. Smart ovens like Sub-Zero Wolf oven and Bosch ovens, control heat and airflow expertly as dual convection creates just the right cooking environment for everything. Built in temperature probes will end the practice of constantly opening the oven to check and re-check your dish. This is especially effective when cooking meat in the oven. The temperature probe alerts you when the dish has reached its desired temperature and automatically ends the cooking process. It can also be programmed to keep the food warm. No more overcooking your food — success made easy.

Samsung’s Family Hub helps you manage your home providing connected living capabilities for food management, family bulletin board schedules tailored to each member’s schedule, custom news, weather, and entertainment — all controlled from a 21.5″ touchscreen. Plan a meal based on what foods are available inside your refrigerator, and use your voice to add items to a shopping list.
