The kitchen is becoming more technological

According to the Global Kitchen study, the kitchen is emerging as a multifunctional and hyperconnected space, in which smart home appliances will not only facilitate cooking but also help with the organisation and purchase of food at home.

Although robot cooks and countertops where you can watch videos and project recipes is yet to come, we can already use social networks to help us with our cooking.

As in many other areas of everyday life, social media is routinely used to gather information and share experiences on new dishes and ingredients, learn about new recipes, or introduce changes in diet.

Social networks take the lead over smart home automation and devices

Social networks not only keep us connected with family and friends, but they also offer us solutions and novelties to complement and enhance our cooking experiences.

The future of kitchen 5G is coming

Smart appliances with mobile integrated technology have started to enter the market, and it won’t be long until countertops where we can view recipes, make a call or watch television will exist, as well as fridges or microwaves with screens to see messages, recipes or even will have the ability to watch Netflix while cooking.
