Pennsylvania homeowners were among those who responded to a national HomeAdvisor survey about smart home preferences. Overwhelmingly, consumers installed smart kitchen appliances in their homes over things like thermostats, security systems and smoke alarms.

Of course, it’s not surprising. Smart kitchen appliances can make shopping and cooking easier, and they are not complicated to install. Read on.

A Smart Refrigerator

Want to check for milk from the dairy aisle? A smart refrigerator makes it easy, with products like the Samsung Family Hub, which has a built-in LCD screen to serve as your home’s command central. Think calendars, grocery lists, a message board, photo sharing features, and more.

Cameras inside the fridge let you check its content from a mobile app. If you prefer something higher end, Dacor offers a line of built-in, column-style refrigerators equipped with WiFi cameras.

A Smart Oven

Anyone can be a master baker with smarter cooking technology. For example, Bosch offers a collaboration with Drop that provides step-by-step instructions to hundreds of recipes. Plus, you can control the oven’s cooking times and temperatures through the company’s Home Connect App.

Another option is from Whirlpool, which has a range with scan-to-cook technology. That’s right, simply scan the UPC barcode on a food package (like a frozen pizza), and the oven will recommend directions, temperature, and cooking time directly to the appliance.

A Smart Coffee Maker

If you’re not ready to invest in a major smart appliance, test the waters with your coffee maker. Try the Behmor Brewer Connected Coffee Brew System to enjoy pinpoint temperature control and brew remotely via a smartphone app.

From there, up your game with an impressive fridge. The GE French Door refrigerator with Keurig Brewing System will prep you a cup right from bed using Geneva, the manufacturer’s voice control assistant.

Add A Dash

If you already have the Amazon Dash button, you already know how easy it is to order everything on your grocery list with the press of a button. Now, manufacturers are incorporating this smart technology into appliances. Think coffee makers that know when you need more java and dishwashers that ask for more detergent.
