Technology has become an integral feature in our household and is something we truly cannot imagine our lives without! According to a recent survey, about 65% of Americans have at least one smart device in their household, showing that most consumers find these modern assistants helpful when going about their daily tasks and activities. One room in your home that might be lacking upgraded appliances (which also happens to be our most-used space) is the kitchen. We’re here to break down the benefits of having smart appliances in your kitchen.
We love being busy in the kitchen whipping up new Pinterest-worthy recipes, but after a long day at work, the last thing we want to do is spend an hour cooking dinner. That’s where smart kitchen appliances come to the rescue. Here at Sharp, we’ve launched a variety of appliances that allow you to cook hands-free (yup, you read that right)! Our Smart Countertop Microwave is one of the newest “hands-off” products in our range of smart appliances. It is Orville Redenbacher and “Works with Alexa” certified with 70 voice commands. Simply place your items in the microwave and ask Alexa to do the heavy lifting for you to “defrost seafood” or “cook frozen vegetables.” No need to fuss with buttons or cook time – let your appliance take care of that.
It’s a fact that smart appliances will save you time – something we’re all needing more of! Juggling work calls, kids’ virtual school sessions, and keeping up with friends can leave us wishing we just had a few more hours in a day to get everything accomplished. An appliance that can help with that is our Smart Combi Built-In Steam Oven! It is like having a sous chef by your side with 5 high-performance cooking modes as well as a dedicated mobile app that can enable smart features. The app also includes access to thousands of recipes, so you don’t have to spend time thinking about how to answer the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner?”
A Smart Way to Clean
Who doesn’t love extra help in the kitchen, especially when it comes to cleaning (I know I do!)?! The SDW6767HS features remote operations by Alexa voice commands with the Amazon Alexa app. Skip the control panel and use your mobile device to start & stop set options, and check the status of your dishwasher in your smart home. Have you ever been relaxing on the couch after cleaning the kitchen and suddenly remember you forgot to run the dishwasher? With the Sharp 24 in. Slide-In Smart Dishwasher (SDW6767HS) you can start your dishwasher without getting up – just say, “Alexa, start the dishwasher”. We are in the midst of a smart revolution and cannot turn down help with the dishes.
Perfectly Cooked Food Every Time
The final benefit (and perhaps the most important) when cooking with a smart appliance, is perfectly cooked food every time. Say goodbye to overcooked proteins or burned vegetables and hello to devices that work with you to put a 5-star meal on the table. One of our favorite products in our smart kitchen lineup is our Easy Wave Open Built-In Microwave Drawer! This appliance features Wi-Fi connectivity for seamless integration in your smart home. The Sharp Kitchen app features cooking instructions as well as a “Microwave Smart Cook” to guide you through the cook and defrost menu items, so your food comes out delicious every time.
