Remember that great 1980’s escapist slice of science fiction? A glimpse into what our future might be like in 2015. The futuristic kitchen gadgets featured in the popular Michael J Fox trilogy were unimaginable at the time – a random tree-like fruit bowl that appears from the ceiling in the kitchen, a cooking gadget called the Master Cook, presumably a smart cooker that works for you and how about the system that controls the entire home? The movies set their bar very low in that they only looked forward to 2015 – it may have seemed a long way away in 1989 but it has been realised now. Flying cars aside, much of Robert Zemeckis’ films seem to have been accurate in their predictions.
On the high end of the scale these days are interactive kitchen surfaces that connect to the Internet, scales that tell you the nutritional value of the food they are measuring and you can already get a number of microwaves that know how to cook food and adjust temperatures accordingly.
However for everyday life and at affordable prices there are amazing innovations taking place to make our lives simpler whilst improving our health and making food taste better. Appliances and gadgets such as air fryers, the Nutri Bullet and fridges that deliver hot, cold and sparkling water! Kitchen surfaces and cabinetry, such as engineered quartz counters (more hygienic and durable than stone) and soft close drawers that are soon to make fussy handles and levers a thing of the past.
