Kitchen Tech

Kitchens are becoming the unequivocal hearts of our homes more and more these days. So, it makes sense for them to also have the technological creature comforts the rest of our homes enjoy also. In fact, some of the most innovative home technology can be seen in our kitchens – and we’re not just talking about electric stoves here! Plenty of brands exist who are creating products that are revolutionizing how we cook, clean and host, all from our kitchens. 

Let’s explore some of the best tech in kitchens today, shall we?

Smart Indoor Grills

Grills are an iconic part of the American summer. There’s nothing better than being outside in the sun enjoying all the grilled meats and vegetables our stomachs can handle. But for parts of the country that don’t have year round warmth, grilling can be an arduous task. Ever tried grilling in November in the Midwest? Forget it. 

Now there’s Smart Indoor Grills for your kitchen, so everyone can enjoy grilled cuisine all year round. Ninja have done a particularly good job at developing the technology with some of their grills being able to air-fry, roast, bake, broil and dehydrate all in the one device!

Smart Toasters

Just like electronic kettles that are able to boil water to the perfect temperature for your chai tea, smart toasters are able to perfectly toast your bread to a desired level. 

These toasters don’t give you that infamous uneven toasting our current ones are famous for, plus you can toast according to the bread type. Bagels, muffins, sourdoughs… smart toasters have a specific setting for those!

Smart Fridges

Likely the most important part of a kitchen, the refrigerator has come a long way in the last few years. They do a lot more these days than just keep food and drinks cold and make ice!

Smart fridges have a touchscreen on one of the doors and act as a control panel and connectivity device. From this screen, you can create grocery lists, take down notes for food preparation and expiry dates, look at recipes, adjust temperatures and do many other tasks!


Good kitchens have good lighting. They often have a great blend of natural light during the day and enough bright lighting for the evenings. But stark, neon white lights are a thing of the past. There’s nothing more off putting than neon lighting when the family gathering in a kitchen. A kitchen should be a warm place, and not have medical ward vibes!

High tech lighting options exist to make kitchens warm and inviting, yet smart and green too! Smart light bulbs can be on timers, dim for mood and lower costs.

Aerogarden Greenhouse

If you love fresh herbs, but live in an apartment or don’t have access to a garden, then an AeroGarden is a great tech addition to any kitchen. This countertop greenhouse grows easy to harvest all your favorite herbs and more. A built-in sensor automatically turns grow lights on and off, plus the simplified system and sensors remind you when to add water and plant food.
