You don’t have to tear down walls or take out a second mortgage to build a smart kitchen. Your smart kitchen dream can start with small appliances and devices. Best of all, you can make smart updates that won’t break the bank. We’ve picked top smart gadgets in every price range to help you get started.
Step 1: Figure Out What “Smart” Means
When you hear about smart homes, smart devices, and (yes!) smart kitchens, it usually refers to something connected via IoT (Internet of Things) technology, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi. Because smart devices are connected, they can be controlled remotely via a mobile app or a voice assistant like Amazon Alexa. When it comes to a kitchen, smart products can make things more efficient, more precise, and safer.
But we don’t think all smart kitchen gadgets need to rely on high-tech communication to upgrade your kitchen. While most of the products we recommend to transform your regular kitchen into a smart one are straightforward smart devices, we’ve also thrown in a few innovative gadgets that make your life easier without relying on a wireless connection.
