Give your kitchen a smart makeover with this high-tech kit

The kitchen, as you know it, is a mu­seum piece. It may not feel like it. You may be happy there. But in the next few years, the do­mes­tic kitchen is go­ing to – al­most lit­er­ally – come alive with pos­si­bil­ity. A new wave of in­tel­li­gent, web-con­nected ap­pli­ances will bring to an end the very no­tion of toil­ing at a hot stove. In­stead, as the in­ter­op­er­abil­ity of ap­pli­ances is smoothed out, and those ap­pli­ances be­gin to con­nect seam­lessly to Ama­zon’s Alexa or Google As­sis­tant, your kitchen will take on the feel of a high-tech com­mand cen­tre. One where, sim­ply by talk­ing to your ap­pli­ances, you will be able to shop, set them cook­ing un­aided, watch guided recipe tu­to­ri­als and, gen­er­ally, be the best cook you can be. At the fore­front of this revo­lu­tion is BBC Good Food, with our archive of 11,000 recipes now avail­able through Sam­sung’s con­nected fridges and Ama­zon’s Alexa de­vices. With the right tech­nol­ogy, you can con­nect your favourite Good Food recipes to your fridge, or search and fol­low each one, all by voice. Han­nah Wil­liams, BBC Good Food’s head of dig­i­tal con­tent, says, ‘The rou­tines and homes of the Good Food au­di­ence are chang­ing, but the de­sire for trusted, tasty recipes is not. With ev­ery in­no­va­tion, we make our con­tent more use­ful and rel­e­vant. It’s ex­cit­ing to help peo­ple cook great-tast­ing food, whether they’re talk­ing to their fridge or flick­ing through the mag­a­zine.’ Ev­ery­thing from your bread­maker to your pans will mon­i­tor tem­per­a­ture and hu­mid­ity to en­sure meals turn out per­fectly. Again. And again. And again. In some cases, that fu­ture is al­ready here. By 2022, it def­i­nitely will be. Wel­come to the kitchen of to­mor­row. Life may never be the same again.
