Cooking can take a lot of time and energy. Thankfully, technology is constantly making our lives easier. Here are some of the most modern technologies that are sweeping the world, solving problems that you never thought could be solved.
Customizable induction hobs
As well as being easier to clean, electronic induction hobs have made cooking a lot faster. But some manufacturers have gone one step further. The Electrolux Infinitepure Induction Hob allows you to change the size and position of cooking zones. You can also turn two cooking zones into one big cooking zone that can accommodate even the largest of pans and woks.
If this wasn’t cool enough, there’s a new model from Panasonic that has introduced Opti-sensor technology on top of this. This technology allows the temperature to readjust every time you put a new ingredient in. Instead of having to increase after adding in some more water to your sauce, the hobs will increase the temperature for you. They can also tell when there’s an empty pan on the hob and automatically switch off.
Not too long ago, smoking food on a barbeque or wood burner would have involved constantly having to check the wood and charcoal. Pellet grills have taken out all the work. All you have to do is set the gas dial and it’ll do the rest for you. The grill heats up quickly and is fed special pellets, specially designed to give food the smokiest of flavour. For slow-smoking food, many pellet grill owners will leave their grills on overnight.
Back in 2008 there were only two manufacturers of pellet grills. Now there are hundreds. Online reviews can help you determine the best pellet grill for you. Here is a list of wood pellet smokers you may consider checking out in order to achieve that savory flavor everyone is faster.
Smart technology allows you to control appliances with your phone. On the way back home in a traffic jam and want to start cooking. You can start up your smart slow cooker, so that your food will be ready for when you get back. Similarly, you can wake up and start up your smart kettle from your bed, go down to kitchen and not have to wait for it to boil.
Boiling hot water tap
But wait – who needs a smart kettle when you can have hot water straight on tap? Boiling water taps allow you to fill up your morning cup of coffee with the flick of a handle. Mistimed a meal and quickly need to boil some water in a pan? You can fill it up straight from the tap. A safety switch meanwhile prevents children and guests from accidentally using it.
Easy access fridge
Bosch’s latest fridge-freezer has added a handy compartment for putting emergency items such as milk and wine in. You no longer have to open the whole fridge to get these items out and can simply pull out a compartment in the front. Not only does this save time but energy, as your fridge doesn’t have to readjust back to its original temperature.
