20 Contemporary Kitchen Appliances

From Smart Connected Fridges to Aquatic Cooking Monitors

— March 2, 2017 — Art & Design
These contemporary kitchen appliances range from smart connected fridges to precise cooking monitors that boast an aquatic power source. When it comes to stovetops, ovens and other food prep innovations, standouts include slender portable stoves -- ideal for small apartments that feature a space limitations -- along with heat-generating kitchen kettles like 'Heat-Save Kettle,' an energy-saving appliance that absorbs access heat during use.

Other notable examples of contemporary kitchen appliances include intelligent refrigerator cameras that monitor food freshness along with touch-controlled climate sinks that allow users to monitor the flow and temperature of water using gesture control.

Solar hot dog roasters and vaporized tea brewers round off this list and are contemporary solutions that are simultaneously designed with convenience and mobile use in mind.
