Smart kitchen appliances
The kitchen is considered by many to be the centre of the home. With the progress of technology, our homes are becoming ‘smart’, and this is transforming the kitchen. There are a plethora of smart kitchen appliances that are turning kitchen and dining spaces into pleasurable, comfortable, and smart experiences.
Smart kitchen appliances can:
- Help reduce waste. These appliances come more equipped with features such as self-cleaning, or waste sorting.
- Help users cook better. Using smart ovens, scales, and thermometers allows users to measure and monitor cooking.
- Allow for healthier cooking. Devices can monitor food ingredients for allergens, or have connected fitness technology, which enables users to monitor and synchronise food consumption with fitness routines.
- Allow for automatic shut-off of appliances such as ovens preventing any risk of fire.
Examples of smart kitchen appliances include:
- LG’s Smart ThinQ Cooker, which allows consumers to cook with precision and comes with thousands of pre-set time frames and temperatures.
- The Somabar, which allows you to make drinks such as Mojitos at the touch of a button.
- HAPIfork monitors and tracks eating habits. If you are ingesting too fast, it buzzes and flashes to remind you to eat your food in small mouthfuls and slowly.
The global smart kitchen appliances market was worth US$476.2 million in 2013 and is expected to soar at a CAGR of 29.1% to 2022, to be valued at US$2,730.6 million.
By product type, the global smart kitchen appliances market is divided into smart dishwashers, smart refrigerators, smart ovens, thermometers and smart scales, smart cookware and cooktops, and others such as smart coffee makers and kettles.
Geographically, North America is expected to dominate the global smart kitchen appliances market. In 2013, North America accounted for a 39.5% share in the global smart kitchen appliances market.
