A well designed kitchen is a kitchen that facilitates cooking and everything to do with it. Technology has definitely revolutionized our kitchens. Appliances are now so high-tech that you almost need to be a "geek" to work them properly. However, the benefits created by new technology appliances are endless.
I decided to pick 3 new appliances that definitely tap into this new revolutionary kitchen realm of infinite capabilities.
The WineStation from Napa Technology
Tired of hosting a dinner party and having bottles of wine leftover half full? With this great new appliance and it's the first automated, temperature controlled, four-bottle wine dispensing and preservation system for the home. It can be wall mounted or undercounter in your kitchen, bar, den or game room. The WineStation maintains the freshness of your favorite wine selections for up to 60 days without the loss of flavor or natural aroma.
With a stunning Danish design, this minimalist coffee maker is sleek and ultra modern. Having only the stainless steel tap exposed on your counter, this built-in coffee machine prepares lattés, cappuccinos, espressos, hot water for tea and even hot chocolates from your tablet or Iphone. Super elegant, this appliance allows you to maximize your counter space making it ideal for offices and small kitchens.
Whirlpool's Interactive Cooktop
This item simply wowed everyone at the International CES this last January. Only at its conceptual stage, this cooktop uses internet connectivity and touchscreen technology to completely change the way we will cook in the future. Whirlpool proposes a cooking surface to be a massive touchscreen that would display information pulled in from a smartphone or tablet. The cooktop's best use might be to display recipes (instead of splattering your Ipad) while cooking, the display would be able to show instructions right next to your ingredients, pans, bowls, and cutting boards. You'd also be able to change the music streaming on your audio system or keep tabs on different social media feeds etc.
Your fingers would delineate the induction cooking surfaces making your "cooktop" area a true blank canvas. At the CES, Whirlpool was using a non-interactive projector on a countertop, but the technology behind it is in full development. You may be able to have this on your Xmas list in 5 to 10 years from now.
