There was a time when slaving away in the kitchen was seen as a chore, a low-down rotten hindrance that involved boiling veg until it was an opaque liquid and rendering meats usable as suitcase material. These days, of course, it’s never been cooler to be a kitchen junkie, as proven by these technological treats for marvelous mealtimes. Here’s a handful of the most striking domestic doohickeys you can find anywhere.
Samsung’s Smart Fridge
The idea of a Smart Fridge has been a bit of a running joke in tech circles but it looks like Korean screen-peddlers Samsung have cracked the code with their latest invention, the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator. Kitted out with a 21.5inch full HD LCD screen, it displays calendarsm, photos, notes, recipes, and can stream television from its Smart TV cousin. It also has high quality cameras which display the contents inside. It basically does everything but cook and eat the food itself. This is the fridge, no the family member, that you never knew your life was missing. Watch the video below to see it in action.
Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven
Panasonic are also in the game to win with this incredible home induction oven that represents a huge step forward in domestic cookware. Induction heating works without flame or red hot surfaces, instead creating an electromagnetic field that efficiently heats its specially treated cooking vessels, but without any preheating and using a lot less energy in the process.
Effortless Spray Butter
And finally, while it’s not nearly as high tech as the other items on this list, you can’t say it isn’t as cool – the Biem Butter Sprayer has way outdone is crowdfunding goals, and will be coming to a kitchen near you soon. As its clever name suggests, this gadget takes a stick of butter and converts it into spray in seconds. Of course, whether you’ll be able to shift the resulting heart disease so quick is another matter.
