Today, technologies are an essential part of our everyday routine and it’s hard to surprise with new gadgets. Still, some brands bring out innovative devices which can definitely make our life easier. Let’s take the kitchen, for example. We already have appliances which can wash dishes and cook food themselves but there are even smarter devices. So, for this article we picked 5 functional gadgets which can make your kitchen a bit more hi-tech.

Kitchen is a place where everything is cooked, so there’s always fire and smoke. That’s why it’s important to have smoke detectors installed. If something wrong happens, you’ll always get a notification on your smartphone and call the fire station.

Multi-cookers, kettles, ovens, coffee machines, – there are so many of them that we combined them into one category.

Temperature measuring devices.
Right temperature is vital for cooking. When you’re frying something, like a steak or fish, it’s important to keep track of the temperature, so that the dish is cooked properly. That’s where gadgets can help. It can be a smartphone-connected thermometer or a smart frying pan or just barbeque tongs which show temperature on a small display.
It seems like there’s no need for an internet-connected scale but it does help a lot. Using an app on your smartphone or tablet, you can follow the recipe step by step while the scale measures the exact amount of products that you need. Even without any apps, a scale is a necessary kitchen item but a smart scale offers a more fun way to cook, especially if you’re a beginner.
Although it isn’t specifically a kitchen gadget, a smart speaker can become a very helpful cooking assistant for you. Such devices, as Amazon Echo or Google Home, are controlled with voice commands, so you can tell them to set timers and get recipes from the Internet. Amazon Echo is even more effective here because you can actually add products to your shopping list or order them.
