So much of cooking is hands-on. It’s the chopping of the veggies, the stirring of the sauces, the flipping of the fish. But in a world that runs on technological advances, there are so many more digitally-oriented tools that you can use to outsource some of the parts of cooking.
The MEATER+ is a thermometer that truly takes the guesswork out of cooking your meat and fish to the proper temperature. Stick this puppy into any cut of steak or chicken and it’ll automatically stream temperature and cooking information directly to your phone so you’ll never over- or undercook anything again.
Take your kitchen sink to the next level with an Alexa-compatible faucet. The Delta Trinsic Single-Handle Touch Kitchen Sink Faucet has both Touch2O technology and Alexa capabilities. That means you can pour a precise cup of water without ever having to touch a tap.
A sous vide is already a pretty high-tech kitchen gadget, but the Anova Culinary Sous Vide Precision Cooker takes it one step further. You can start and stop your cooking through the app, even if you’re miles away with its Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities.
An Instant Pot with WiFi connection allows you to start your dinner before you’re even home. Pile all your ingredients into the cooker and set it with the app to keep track of your meal from anywhere.
The Breville Mini Smart Oven is a step above your average, everyday toaster oven. Packed with Element IQ, this technology heats to a precise and stable heat so you’ll never have uneven cooking.
The AmazonBasics microwave looks like your average counter-top model, but hidden beneath its unassuming shell is a smart device. It can connect to any Echo device so you can pop your popcorn or reheat your soup with just your voice.
While it isn’t smart in the connected sense of the word, this cutting board has a hidden advantage. Under its chunky bamboo facade are a hidden kitchen scale and a magnetic knife holder to help maintain your mise en place.
