 - Jan 5, 2014
The idea of making kitchen design and cooking more convenient for consumers has never been more apparent than in this collection of 2013 kitchen trends.

Culinary design took a massive leap in integrating technology into products, services and consumer experiences. Almost every aspect of a kitchen -- countertops, fridges, storage, cutlery and appliances -- now incorporates technological capabilities and functions. From chopping boards boasting touchscreens and comprehensive recipe books to drip-catching mugs and foldable appliances, consumers experience cuisine like never before.

Kitchen products and services also enable consumers to better manage their health and weight through automated portion control. With cutlery that monitors how much one has eaten to single-serving measuring devices, staying healthy and moderating portions has never been easier.
