It’s often said that the kitchen is the most important room in the home. It’s where families come together and where guests linger over cocktails. Kitchens need to be both functional and beautiful. With the latest appliance trends, you can easily accomplish both for your next kitchen renovation project.
Most ovens work by introducing hot air to the chamber in order to cook food. Steam ovens are different. As the name implies, they use hot steam to turn out perfectly cooked dishes. This is significant for several reasons. First, you’ll never again have to worry about your meats drying out—you won’t even have to repeatedly baste your Thanksgiving turkey. Plus, cooking with steam can often be healthier than cooking with hot air. This is because the steam helps lock in vitamins and minerals, rather than stripping them away. Furthermore, the use of steam can often eliminate the need for cooking oils, which would add excess fats to the meal.
Built-In Vacuum Sealers
No one likes a kitchen countertop cluttered with small gadgets. That’s why some brands have been moving toward vacuum sealers built directly into the kitchen cabinetry or appliance space. Not only does it look more appealing, but the food preservation technology has gotten a lot more impressive. Some brands of built-in vacuum sealers are capable of reaching a vacuum of close to absolute zero for exceptional food preservation. Vacuum sealers are also a must for sous vide cooking.
Bluetooth technology has changed the way people communicate, and now, it’s also changing the way people cook. Various brands are introducing synced appliances courtesy of Bluetooth. It allows the different appliances in your kitchen to “talk” to each other, coordinating cooking times across the oven, stovetop, and microwave, for example. With this smart tech, you’ll never have to guess at different cooking times for various side dishes or entrees—they’ll all be done and ready to eat at the same time.
