Recently, we’ve seen a number of smart kitchen gadgets being launched in the market. Here are 5 we think would contribute greatly to the productivity levels in our cooking zones.
If you’re one of those people who hem and haw at the grocery aisle, the GenieCan is a handy device that will change the way you shop. Its barcode scanner keeps track of your groceries by scanning your trash. It then adds the recently binned item into a list on your smart phone. Even if an item doesn’t have a barcode, the GenieCan will ask you what it can add to your shopping list and the item will be added. At the supermarket, all you have to do is pull out your GenieCan app and look at your list.
Now that we get to enjoy the quick delivery offered by Amazon Prime in Singapore, we just can’t wait for the next Amazon innovation to reach our shores. The Amazon Dash is a nifty little Wi-Fi connected device that reorders your favourite grocery item with the push of a button. Each button is individually linked to a product of your choice, and when you press the button an order will be placed for it through Amazon Prime. With this neat little device, you may never run out of toilet paper again!
Samsung Family Hub refrigerator
Imagine a refrigerator that helps you manage your schedules, stream your favourite TV programmes, created automated shopping lists and order groceries for you. That’s the Samsung Family Hub smart refrigerator. We imagine that forgetting to add that all-important ingredient on your shopping list will be a thing of the past with this super smart appliance.
Crock-Pot WeMo smart slow cooker
If you often fantasize about coming home after a long day at work to a comforting bowl of chicken stew, this WeMo enabled crock-pot is the cookware for you. Where its conventional predecessors fail in terms of peace of mind – that is, simply leaving it on for the entire day – this smart slow cooker lets you manage your cook remotely. You can virtually start cooking, adjust the temperature and stop the cook all via the WeMo app.
Quirky Egg Minder
How many times have you wasted a carton of eggs just because you left them in the fridge for too long? We are definitely guilty of this and would welcome the help of this smart egg tray. It tells you how many eggs you’ve got at home and how many of them are going bad via an app. It is also fitted with LED lights that indicate which eggs are going bad and sends push notifications when you’re running low on supply.
