It will not be long before you enjoy hyperconnected kitchens not only with the other household appliances in the house, to manage them through the mobile phone, but also with the incorporation of those smart appliances that will allow us to have a novel and technological operation in our home.
It is the case of countertops where we will not only be able to cook but also see recipes, make a call or watch television; ovens with screens to know the cooking states, plan a meal; fridges or microwaves with screens to see messages, recipes or even Netflix.
