It may be a while before we enjoy the future of countertops and self-cleaning robot chefs, but there are plenty of other space age gadgets for the kitchen available today.
While we all settle for trusty white goods and appliances, there are things we all dream about in the kitchen.
Here are some of the most aspirational kitchen tools that would be welcomed into any home.
The trusty kettle is one of the most used appliances in any kitchen. Even if you’re not a caffeine addict and don’t drink gallons of tea or coffee, there’s a good chance you can still use them to make pasta, rice, and other dishes. However, even the most expensive kettles take time to boil, and are not energy friendly, so you’ll need one of these boiling water faucet available. The Zip Hydrotap is an innovative device that produces boiling water in an instant, and comes directly from the tap. The Zip Hydrotap also has a built-in filter so you can be sure your water is clear and clean, and it also cools the water as it is poured so you don’t have to buy bottled water again.
Few kitchen appliances are as iconic as the Smeg fridge. Recreating the classic and vintage style of the 50s, this retro stainless steel fridge comes in a variety of different designs and colors guaranteed to liven up any kitchen décor. Of course, they are more than just pretty faces, and most Smeg models feature high storage capacities, low noise levels, and excellent energy efficiency levels.
The oven is at the center of any kitchen and, as long as it’s working, it’s probably the one appliance you’ll be least likely to change in years. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t look at more desirable alternatives, and no kitchen appliance is quite as attractive as the Aga stove. This stylish cast iron hob helps recreate the look of a classic country kitchen in any home, and the impressive set features multiple oven bays as well as a hot plate, warm plate and hob top.
Even with the help of a dishwasher, doing the dishes still feels like a chore. Crouching down and loading the machine before taking it all out piece by piece can sometimes feel slower than just giving it a quick wash in the sink. This is why the Kitchenaid In-Sink appliance is such an innovative concept. Plugged into the drying board space next to the sink, the appliance opens so you can rinse dishes in the sink before placing them directly into the washer. Even better, you can lift the dishwasher basket and turn it into an extra sink or fold down the top for extra work area.
Morphy Richards Intellistteamer
Steaming is one of the healthiest and tastiest ways to cook vegetables, but most steamers rely on a certain degree of guesswork thanks to the imprecise selection of timers and stackable baskets. With preset digital timers designed for different foods and a handy built-in divider, the Intellisteamer makes steaming so much easier. You simply put your food in, press a few buttons and wait for your vegetables to be perfectly cooked.
Graeme K: When it’s time to update your kitchen and you take a look at the various guides on offer at your local DIY outlet, you quickly realize that there are things you’ve never had before that you now ‘NEED’ (!). First, it was a Zip Hydrotap, because my wife saw the recipe idea, etc www.nowzipit.co.uk then it’s aga and the list goes on. Turns out the kitchen had to be expanded to fit all the dream items we wanted. Turns out I also need to get a second job to pay for everything! However the goal isn’t, if you achieve it instantly, then what’s the goal!?
