Top 30 Kitchen Ideas in May

From Countertop Composting Machines to Bluetooth-Enabled Cooking Woks

— May 30, 2021 — Art & Design
As the May 2021 kitchen trends demonstrate, our at-home kitchens continue to become more high-tech, but also more sustainable.

Though Internet-connected cooking devices are not exactly new, a whole new range of appliances and cooking implements have recently received a digital makeover. For instance, the 'Food One' cooking appliance is a smart wok that includes smart assistant connectivity, Bluetooth, an accompanying mobile app, and more. Similarly, the Atomi Smart WiFi Coffee Maker offers voice assistant connectivity with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can begin brewing without lifting a finger.

Of course, even in the midst of this technological revolution, there is still an effort to make cooking at home a more sustainable practice. For instance, one idea highlighted by the May 2021 kitchen trends is the Lomi countertop composter, which is speeds up the breakdown of organic waste without creating a smell or a mess.
