Whether you’ve saved money on holidaying abroad or garnered a new love of cooking during lockdown, there’s certainly lots of us looking to give our kitchens a refresh this year, and what better way to transform your cooking capabilities than with a new range of fantastic appliances. With most of us updating our kitchens once every 20 years, it’s safe to say technology has probably changed since you bought your last kitchen and so we’ve put together a handy list of some of the top appliances to add to your kitchen wishlist in 2021.
When we say smart appliances, we mean smart appliances, seriously smart. Internet enabled kitchen technologies have been around for a little while now, but this year their secret is out. From coffee machines to ovens and refrigerators to washing machines, the latest smart appliances have the potential to transform your life on a daily basis. Controlled using an app on your phone, you can tell your appliances what to do wherever you are, so you can wake up to freshly brewed coffee and even check the stock levels of your fridge while you’re at the supermarket. However, our favourite internet enabled appliance out of the bunch has to be the smart oven.
Smart ovens are the ultimate smart appliance. Baking addicts can check the progress of their cake from the comfort of the sofa and with integrated sensors, your oven will adjust the temperature as needed and turn itself off when it senses the food is cooked. While you can certainly look forward to coming home from work to a delicious slow-cooked stew, the smart oven doesn’t just allow you to control your oven from your phone. You can set a cooking mode that’s tailored to specific recipes from the digital screen or even using voice control to guarantee whatever meal you make is cooked to perfection.
Intelligent Induction Hobs
This year induction hobs really have moved on. With incredible sensor technology, you can experience completely intuitive, convenient and creative cooking like never before. The sensor technology allows you to place your pan anywhere on the hob, the sensors will recognise the size of the pan and heat just that area, you can even move the pan around the hob and your temperature settings will seamlessly follow. New point and twist controls make changing temperature quick and easy, so you don’t find yourself pressing buttons in a panic when something is overheating. For quicker cooking with more control consider investing in a new state-of-the-art induction hob.
Steam Ovens That Do It All
Steam technology is undoubtedly the latest in cooking innovation. It ensures your food is moist on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside and helps to lock in flavour and nutrients with every meal. Steam cooking is ideal for everything from baking bread to roasting meat, and combined with smart technology will guarantee absolute perfection. The latest steam ovens come with a plethora of other benefits, from hi-tech air circulation that prevents the transfer of flavours to self-cleaning abilities. Imagine that, an oven that cooks a meal perfectly and then cleans up after. What could be a better addition to your brilliant new kitchen?
Kitchen appliances aren’t just about improving your cooking capabilities, they can also have a fantastic impact on the aesthetic design of your space, and that’s one of the reasons integrated extraction hobs have made it onto our list of top 2021 appliances. Not only are they incredibly effective at removing food odours, but they allow remarkable design flexibility. Doing away with bulky cooker hoods means you can position your hob anywhere in the kitchen without interrupting the look of your space. Their sleek looks and unbelievably quiet operation make them ideal for open-plan living, ideal whether your hosting a sophisticated dinner party or cooking a family meal while the kids do their homework.
Boiling Water Taps
They might have been around for a while, but with a host of new elegant designs and incredible practical benefits, you simply can’t ignore them any longer! A boiling water tap is the perfect addition to the sustainable and wellbeing focused kitchens of 2021. Do away with messy worktop appliances and enjoy filtered boiling water immediately for the ultimate in calming convenience and style. The boiling water tap has proven to be energy-efficient and less wasteful so you can experience a little luxury in your kitchen whilst benefiting the environment.
Each year we take another step into the future to discover impressive innovations that make our lives easier and more convenient and 2021 is no different, in fact, if anything it’s even better. The latest kitchen appliances are certain to transform your lifestyle so you can spend more time doing what you love, whether that’s cooking up a feast or relaxing with friends and family.
