Cooking

COOKING

Modern cooking has come a long way in the past 50 years and we are edging ever closer to the houses of tomorrow that people then were only dreaming about. The advancements in technology and innovation are moving more and more towards automation, ease of use and convenience, control via touch and voice, and a fully integrated system of appliances and electronics throughout your home.

The doors on all appliances are moving towards either a French door design or a side-open design, like this French Door oven from GE Cafe. This saves space while also saving you from struggling to bend down, pull food from the oven or microwave while also circumnavigating the door, and then close it again with full hands. Most of the newest appliances come with Wi-Fi and synching abilities, allowing them to talk to each other, cut back on energy usage, and free up your time.

Induction cooking, like this Whirlpool Gold 30" cooktop, is increasing in popularity because of its speed and safety: heating through electromagnetic fields and giving you precise control over that heat while only heating up the cookware, not the eye itself and certainly not the entire house! Some induction cooktops, like this 30" Induction Cooktop from GE Monogram, include touch-and-swipe controls, meaning your connection and use of your cooktop is now even easier and more intuitive.

Ovens are adding in steaming abilities, meaning your food retains its nutrients and flavors better than ever before. This combination of steam and convection modes can be seen in the Whirlpool 6.7 Total Cu Ft Steam Clean Double Oven Convection Range, and the oven can even figure out the best way to prepare meal for you with the help of a few button presses.

The newest appliances can also connect, these days, using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technologies, they can sync up clock times and automatically turn on lights and vents when needed. The GE Profile 5.3 Cu Ft Self/Steam Clean Convection Induction Range hosts this feature, called ChefConnect™.

Fourthly, the latest technology options. Not only are there many innovations in the design and function of the new machines, meaning lower decibel levels and less noise in your home, but many models these days are app-enabled, meaning you can check the progress of the cycle from afar. The Whirlpool and GE smart dishwashers are even integrated with Amazon Dash, so when you’re running low on detergent, your dishwasher will automatically order more.

Lastly, the look you want in your new appliance. There are the three basic finishes: black, white, or stainless, as well as your choice of stainless or plastic inner tub and washing arms. Both choices are up to your dor and taste, as tub material doesn’t affect cleaning performance {though stainless steel won’t rust and will be slightly more durable}. Alternatively, you could choose a dishwasher front that matches the surrounding cabinetry to blend in with the rest of the kitchen, like the GE Profile Integrated Dishwasher. Once you have your finish, you can choose your handle and control panel types. Handles come in subtle scoop, squared, or rounded shapes, and the control panel can be located either on the front or top/upper lip of the machine, also known as a fully integrated control panel. In either location, the control panel can have physical buttons or digital touch controls, and helpful features like a time display to let you know how much longer the cycle has to go.
