5 Techie Things Designed to Bring IOT into Your Kitchen

The internet of things, otherwise known as IOT, is here to stay. And with advances in science, virtually every aspect of life as we know it will soon be interconnected with one another, thereby simplifying human activities. This technical revolution will have its effects on the domestic setting of every family and for homeowners who love to be on the right side of cutting edge technology. Here, I will cover some interesting items designed to transport your kitchen into the 22nd century:

Cook Precisely with a Tech-Enhanced Precision Cooker

Pressure cookers are nothing new. They are shiny pots that you put items you either need to deep-fry or boil into that plug in an electric circuit, and voila – your food is ready. Although pressure cookers are known for their speed in cooking, they do not provide much else. This is the opposite of a precision cooker. Precision cookers are designed to provide your kitchen with speed, accuracy, and a way to keep all nutrients in your food intact throughout the cooking phase.

The practical reasons for using a Sous Vide precision cooker include: ensuring that food retains its nutritional value and speeding up your overall cooking time. This is due to the fact that the cooker boils water to a precise temperature. Simply put food contained in vacuum sealed bags into the water and you’re halfway there. Now, the techie reason to own one is that you can control your cooking via a mobile app and the Bluetooth on your smart device.[1] This means you don’t have to be physically in the kitchen to do your cooking, which is an awesome advantage.

Stay Clean with a Sensor-Powered Kitchen Faucet

The kitchen sink has always been noted as one of the more germ-infested areas in most homes. And sadly, it is almost impossible to cook without paying a visit to your sink—to wash one item or the other—periodically while cooking. Here, not much brain power is needed to know that these periodic visits may transfer germs to places and plates they have no business residing in.

That’s where sensor-powered kitchen faucets or ‘touchless’ faucets come in handy. Touchless faucets are technology’s answer to fighting the transportation of germs into the food that we eat. A touchless faucet works with sensors that ensure you do not come in contact with your kitchen sink when cooking. Simply put the needed objects—your hands or food—and the sensor does its job, ensuring you receive water without a touch and decreasing cross-contamination.

Make Fries with a Smart Frying Pan

There are only two ways to cook an egg or a salmon without overcooking them and they are: staying close to your frying pan throughout the cooking process or getting yourself a smart fryer.[2] While the former has been the tradition for hundreds of years, human fallibility has led to more than one salmon getting roasted beyond recognition, a problem that the latter technique can help you do without.

A smart frying pan comes integrated with sensors and its own application, which provides you with accurate feedback on the cooking situation. The smart fryer takes responsible cooking further by telling you when to flip your salmon and the right time to take it off the fire. Of course, it comes in handy with a lot of other cooking in your kitchen as well.

    Size-up Your Food with a Smart Scale

    Cooking is an art form that must be practiced for one to become a master at it. This is because the amount of food one cooks determines the amount of spices or ingredients that must go with it. And as the quantity of food being cooked increases or reduces, the amount of ingredients to be used also increases and decreases proportionally. So how does one stay on the right side of the scale?

    The smart scale is the answer to that question for it provides you with detailed recipes and the exact quantity of food and spices needed to cook your chosen meal. Smart scales come with their own applications, which allow you to view recipes and weigh food items with ease.

    Keep Trash Out with Bins that Talk

    Smart trash cans are all the rage now and if you reside in a smart city, you may have used a sensor-enhanced trash can to hold waste without any contact with the bin whatsoever. But what if a domestic bin can take it two steps further by sending you mail notifications that tell you to take the trash out? For that reason, with smart bins, good kitchen hygiene is definitely guaranteed.

    With these five useful items, you are bound to be equipped with a smart kitchen for the ages.
