What’s in store for the kitchen of tomorrow? There’s no knowing for certain what the appliances will look like in 30 years, what functions will come as standard or how they will work, but as a guide, it might be worth looking at a modern-day Washing Machine found at appliances direct, as they seem pretty futuristic. You can buy self-serviceable appliances such as washing machines which can fix themselves, wash delicate materials and do a full cycle in half an hour. But what else can you expect to get from smart appliances today?
One of the outstanding features that just about every smart appliance has is energy efficiency. The majority of smart appliances on the market today have a high energy efficiency rating and with good reason. Washing machines, fridge freezers and dishwashers that come with those ratings use less water while doing a similar or improved job compared to that of earlier appliances. Perhaps more importantly, smart appliances use less electricity by not wasting as much as older appliances did.
Aside from intelligent energy use, smart appliances come equipped with a number of innovative features and functions which set them apart from their more basic equivalents. For example, if you look at a modern-day smart fridge freezer, you should expect to find a drinks dispenser, ice dispenser and salad crisper, as well as specific compartments for fruit and meat where you can control the temperature so that they’re at the appropriate level. However, some smart fridge freezers do even more, and future hi-tech appliances will do even more.
One such example of a future appliance that does more that you would expect from a humble kitchen appliance is a new smart fridge freezer from Korean electronics firm Samsung. They are set to bring out a new model which comes equipped with a touch screen that, aside from controlling the temperature of both the refrigerator and freezer compartments, lets you access recipes, write notes and even look for weather updates. Meanwhile, other future appliances will help users find out if they’re running low on certain items of food or drink like milk, eggs or cold meats, which is incredibly useful.
If you think the kitchen technology of today is amazing, who knows what could happen? You could find that, in as little as five years from now, you could buy appliances that run on wireless electricity, fridges with full internet connectivity and a screen big enough for you to watch TV on. The possibilities are pretty much endless, but there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the features and ease of use that come with smart appliances today.
