From Fat-Reducing Bacon Appliances to Flame-Monitoring Stovetops

 - Feb 25, 2017
From fat-reducing appliances to safe stovetop designs, the February 2017 kitchen trends reveal a significant emphasis on improving health and safety in the home.

With so many consumers looking for ways to improve their diet, a number of companies have designed appliances that cook foods in healthier ways. For instance, the Bacon Express Bacon Grill cooks bacon strips vertically so that fat is able to drip away during the cooking process. Similarly, the Manic Organics Slow Cooker uses dynamic 3D heating capabilities to help consumers start preparing their meal remotely.

Beyond health, safety is also a top priority among the February 2017 kitchen trends. For the most part, this refers to smart technology that is being used to either turn devices off before they overheat or to warn consumers when a device has been left unattended for too long. Some examples of these safety-oriented kitchen devices include the MirrorHob stove range, the Inirv React built-in stove alarms and the Nest Protect-integrated GE appliances.
