5 must-have revolutionary kitchen devices
They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s true that historically, the kitchen has played an important role in the household. It’s the room where families prepare their meals, have their coffee in the morning before work, and is often where much social interaction and eating takes place too. As of 2015, new technologies have radically transformed kitchens around the world, making mundane tasks infinitely easier and improving the quality of life for many people. Here are some of the most revolutionary kitchen devices available on the market today.
Samsung: Chef Collection Vapour Electric Oven
Complete with built-in WiFi which allows users to adjust settings remotely and automatically input settings based on recipes from the internet, this is most definitely the oven of the future. The device even sends you updates to your smartphone so you can know exactly how your meal is progressing. For meat lovers, the device’s gourmet vapour functionality injects vapour into the oven which allows meat to be cooked so that it’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside – delicious!
Tefal UK: Fresh Express Cube and Stick
Let’s be honest, who really enjoys chopping vegetables? Well, with Tefal’s new device, your chopping days are over. The Fresh Express Cube and Stick is designed to splice and dice a range of fruit and vegetables in a matter of seconds. Complete with 5 blade cartridges for 5 different chopping functions, simply place a bowl under the device, place your fruit or vegetables in the feeding chute, set the chopping function and allow the device to do the hard work for you. Oh, the wonders of modern technology.
Phillips: Advance Collection Table Grill
Want to grill your meat and vegetables with an infusion of herbs, spices, or even wine? This device does it for you with no manual seasoning required. With a versatile surface, both stir-frying and grilling are possible, and the glass lid and infuser filled with water steams your meat to ensure it comes out tender and delicious. The device also has a detachable dishwasher-safe plate for easy cleaning.
Magimix: Vision Toaster
This is one of those products that, while revolutionary, really makes you wonder why no one thought of it sooner! All of us at one time or another have put a slice of bread in the toaster and have begun to daydream, only to find that the tasty piece of toast we’ve been eagerly anticipating has become completely incinerated. The Vision Toaster doesn’t employ any futuristic technologies – it is merely a transparent toaster where you can see the toast being cooked, allowing you to turn it off before the toast burns. As Steve Jobs once said: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Quooker: The Boiling Water Tap
Instantaneous boiling water can rapidly expedite a range of everyday kitchen activities, such as blanching vegetables, cooking pasta or brewing a good ol’ cup of coffee. With a stainless steel tank, advanced thermos technology, and instantly boiling 100°C water, the water will be sterile and therefore free of harmful bacteria such as legionella. Quooker’s tap comes in a range of finishes and styles and is completely safe, with an inbuilt child-proof safety mechanism and a static tap which ensures a fine spray directly downwards – as opposed to a thick jet which can splash and cause burns.
At Total Soft Water, we sell and install Quooker’s Boiling Water Taps so please don’t hesitate to give us a call if you’re looking to make your life in the kitchen a whole lot easier!
