Futuristic Kitchen Innovations
15th August 2017
Technology is developing at an incredible rate. After all, half the luxuries we use on a regular basis seemed impossible just a few decades ago. So, the question remains- where can we go from here? Plenty of people have thrown their creative hat in the ring in regards to advancements in robotics, technology, accessibility etc. Although our question is- how will this affect the kitchen?
There’s always such an emphasis on the fantastical when it comes to future technology, although sometimes you have to sit down and imagine how the future could alter that of normal everyday life. Namely that of the kitchen and meal preparation.
As you may well know, we at Dream Doors are all about kitchens so we thought we’d weigh in on the tech race and give our opinions on some of the hottest new technology that either has or will hit your kitchen at home.
So, without further ado, let’s have a glimpse into the future…
The Robot Kitchen
From Moley Robotics this clever machine was unveiled at the electronic fair in Shanghai in 2015. The kitchen consists of an oven, fridge, dishwasher and some small appliances, that and a pair of robot arms capable of replacing a cook and equipped with the ability to stir, drizzle and garnish!
The best thing about these arms? They don’t have A.I and you don’t have to give it orders. The arms simply follow a recipe previously mapped out. In the future, you may be able to download a full three-course meal for it to create!
This device is perfect for those who hate cooking- it’s like having a personal robot butler! (some day we hope!)
Palate Home Smart Grill
This is certainly not your average George Forman grill. Available now, this incredible device has the ability to cook pretty much any food to any degree you wish. Forget the old days of toasties and simple snacks, with the smart grill you can cook anything, even steaks, exactly to your requirements. It knows the difference between medium and rare- need I say more?
This handy electronic fork can do wonders for your health and diet. It helps monitor and track all of your eating habits, as well as your potential weight loss. All you have to do is eat with it! It calculates how long you eat, how many fork servings and the time in between servings. Later, the smart-fork uploads all its information to an app via Bluetooth or USB. Want to keep track of what you’re eating in a non-obtrusive way? Then this fork is perfect for you!
How many times have you been out and had the nagging thought “did I leave the oven on?” Well, this smart oven will solve your problem! With the ability to connect directly to your smartphone, you will be able to control every aspect of your cooking- from a distance! Has your alarm buzzed telling you to leave the food to stand? Simply switch off the oven from your living room! Plus- with the ability to send recipes to it and configure it to your exact needs, this oven really does all the work for you!
Smart Frying Pan
This intelligent pan will help ensure that your eggs, salmon and burgers are cooked to perfection. The sensors inside the pan will send notifications to your phone letting you know the right time to put your food on, flip it or when it is fully cooked.
It even comes with an app loaded with recipes to get you started! A hefty price tag but could be worth it!
Miito- The Kettle Rod
Miito is a super adaptable device that can heat a variety of liquids directly in the vessel of your choice.
This device is a game changer that goes beyond your normal kettle needs. You only have to heat the amount of liquid you need using whatever vessel you prefer. And it heats more than just water – it can also heat milk, soup and even more.
Peres, “The Electronic Nose”
Food poisoning isn’t the most delightful way to spend a day (or week): let this device sniff out whether or not you should avoid eating that chicken.
With a companion app and simple instructions, this little wand could very well mark the difference between a delicious evening for two and a meal from hell!
