It seems surprising that with the kitchen as the center of our homes and lives, it hasn’t been automated before this. Now here are 10 of the top kitchen gadgets that are expected to become the norm in a modern kitchen.
1. Egg Minder
This gadget is great for reminding you if you have enough eggs and if your eggs are still good – even when you’re not home! The Egg Minder comes with a complementary mobile app that send push notifications when your egg supply is running low. It also tracks how long you’ve had the eggs to make sure you don’t get a bad egg to eat in the morning.
2. Prep Pad
Designed for the health nut in all of us, the Prep Pad is a digital food scale with a few more tricks up its sleeve. Combine a smart scale, a nutritional guide, and a dietitian, and voila! you have the Prep Pad. The Prep Pad not only measures your food, but, using an iPad app, lets you specify the item you are weighing and spits out the dietary information. This can help you track calories, protein, fats, and carbs.
3. Blendtec Designer 700
This high-tech kitchen gadget might not be what you were expecting on this list. However, the Blendtec Designer 700 provides the modern kitchen with some powerful options. The newest model has a killer 1700-watt motor with six pre-programmed options for those of us who aren’t super kitchen-savvy. Oh yeah, and it also has a touchscreen interface making it easy to use and determine what you are blending.
4. Belkin Crock-Pot WeMo Slow Cooker
Crock-pots give working parents and college students the ultimate in convenience and not to mention it’s fairly budget friendly! But a crock-pot only works if you remember to turn it on as you run out the door in the morning… Enter the WeMo-enabled Slow Cooker that talks with your smartphone so you can turn on your meal anytime and anywhere. Don’t worry about having an undercooked meal again.
5. GE Brillion
This app works with several GE wall ovens to let you remotely control and monitor your oven settings. Not only can you preheat on the way home, but you can check your meat probe settings from your office. Plus, never worry about forgetting to turn the oven off again!
