Gadgets and Gizmos

by The Irvine Team 09/02/2019

Browsing through the kitchen gadgets or perusing the tech isles for the lasts and greatest little gizmos to make your life more comfortable you will find all sorts of items that make you wonder if they are worth the money. Maybe you wish you were living in the real-life version of some futurist cartoon you grew up watching where the robotic maid does all the chores, and the house itself provides your meals. While that scenario may be a bit out of reach as of yet, it may soon be available.

Little Things, Big Help

The kitchen, known to be the "heart of the home," is one place you can find many useful gadgets to help create that feeling. Some items are daily use and others, just once in a while, but all need to be stored and sometimes space is limited. Americans love their morning ‘cup of joe,' so coffee makers seem to be the standard operating procedure for most households. Programmable coffee makers have been on the market for a while, but now they have an app for that coffee maker. So, if you have an urge for a coffee on your way home from work with certain tech coffeemakers, you can simply order one up, and it will be ready as you walk in the door. If coffee is not your thing, maybe having your bar-b-qued burgers cooked just right is more your speed. There are now meat thermometers, that with an app on your phone, will tell you when that meat is at an optimal temperature. No more opening and closing the BBQ lid and messing with the heat levels, Bon Appetite! 

Smart Fridges

What about smart tech for appliances, like your refrigerator? A fridge with an internet connection can keep track of the food inside, but some can also connect to other smart technology throughout your home. Some smart refrigerators can allow you to communicate with your smartphone while you are out and about, thus enabling you to check on how many eggs you have left or whether you need pickles. Some models have whiteboards so you can leave messages, or screens that can keep schedules to help you and everyone stay in the loop. Command Central, located in your smart refrigerator, making the kitchen indeed the heart of the home.
