The kitchen is already one of the most technologically advanced rooms in our homes; with so many gadgets and gizmos already taking up precious counter space, it’s not surprising that the “smart kitchen” has been the slowest room in the smart home to catch on.

Food isn’t the only thing made better by smart appliances. Smart refrigerators, microwaves, ovens, sinks and other appliances can monitor the energy they’re using and reduce waste. Investing in smart appliances can mean monthly savings for years. They can also alert homeowners to issues in the kitchen when they’re away from the house.

It is predicted that 1% of American households will have a smart oven by the end of 2022. This is a substantial increase from the current number of .5%. The most common use for a smart oven is to remotely peek into an oven without opening the door, but it also has many other uses, such as automatically cooking different meals throughout the day.

Smart ovens were designed to take the guesswork out of cooking, allowing for more time to be spent on other things. They are expected to do wonders for seniors and other people with mobility difficulties. The smart oven also uses less energy than conventional ovens, which is environmentally friendly.
