When people envisioned the future, they imagined scenes like those from the Jetsons. Whether it was having a robot maid or kitchen gadgets that did everything at the touch of a button, most consumers figured life would get very easy. While not all of these innovations have come to fruition, the fact is appliances are as technologically-advanced as never before. If you’re in the market for some new appliances, here are some interesting ways new technologies have been incorporated into today’s appliances.
While in years past it took lots of time to brew coffee, you can now get your favorite cup of java in a matter of seconds. With innovative one-cup technology, you don’t have to wait to brew much more coffee than you might need. And along with being able to brew only one cup at a time, you can also use today’s coffee makers to brew plenty of other beverages, such as hot cider, cocoa, and tea.
If you’re looking for a really smart appliance, consider installing touchscreen countertops. Able to interact with you, they talk and even offer suggestions for portions and how many calories each portion contains. Becoming more popular in kitchens, the countertops are able to recognize exactly what items are placed on them and even offer different recipes for the foods.
While decades ago a refrigerator with an automatic ice maker seemed like an incredible innovation, that’s nothing compared to today’s models. When it comes to smart appliances, many homeowners will quickly realize even appliances are affected by technology. Equipped with touchscreens, they can keep a running list of items you’ll need to buy from the store, making grocery shopping much easier. In addition to this, they can bring up your schedule for the day, provide you a calendar to make changes, and even provide photos and nutrition information for certain foods.
If you don’t want your kitchen cluttered up with a conventional stove, microwave oven, and grill, you can now purchase ovens containing quadruple heating systems. With this technology, foods can be cooked any way you like while taking up far less space and time. In fact, most foods can be cooked four times faster than using traditional microwaves and stoves.
Whether you’ve got an appliance offering a new recipe or telling you what you need to buy at the store, there’s no doubt technology is making today’s appliances much more interesting and efficient.
