Get­ting into the smart kitchen game is not as daunt­ing as you might think. The days of con­fus­ing user in­ter­faces and clunky con­nec­tions are long past, and IoT ap­pli­ances are easy to set up, even for the tech­no­log­i­cal novice. Start out with a hub that all your smart ap­pli­ances can con­nect to for easy con­trol, be it a con­ven­tional op­tion the likes of Sam­sung’s SmartThings hub, or one with built-in ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence like the Ama­zon Echo. From there, you can is­sue a voice com­mand to start a con­nected cof­fee maker or con­trol a con­nected elec­tric ket­tle through your smart­phone!

Soft­ware smarts aside, it may also be time to switch out your decades-old ap­pli­ances for the mar­ket’s lat­est to en­sure you get the best mod­ern fea­tures while scor­ing ecofriendly points for mother earth. Go for a ce­ramic hob over a gas one, or a re­frig­er­a­tor that has a 5 star rat­ing from the En­ergy Com­mis­sion of Malaysia; both serve to make your life more con­ve­nient, and also helps with the en­vi­ron­ment.
