We have come to the dawn of a robotic age, where innovation has invaded even our kitchen space and we find ourselves on the verge of the “unique kitchen gadgets” age. It all started with our doorbells that came with the video of the person at the doorstep and you could decide to talk to and send them away, if need be. No need to walk up to the door! We could turn on and off our lights and air conditioners with our smart phone; not to mention our music systems. We reduced the number of our remotes to one; gone are the days when there used to be one remote for each of the gadgets in our house.
We have security systems, theft alarms, smoke detectors, fire alarms, intelligent pillows and mattresses that help us sleep better, intelligent washing machines that run wash cycles based on the amount of dirt and the type of clothing, intelligent dish washers that reduce our cleaning woes…and the list goes on!! When technology invaded our living rooms and bedrooms, it decided to move on to our kitchens too. After all, that is one space where the work is more, where the tasks are time-consuming and where the activities are inevitable. As well all know, food is one of the basic necessities of man and preparing food is something we cannot fully assign to machines, at least not in the immediate future!
So, it is not surprising that our inventors went ahead and created unique kitchen gadgets that can help us simplify and speed-up our tasks. Simple inventions that save our time and our efforts! Gadgets that make us smarter, our cooking faster and our activities less lethargic and more interesting! Gadgets that help us spend less time cooking and cleaning and more time with our families and friends. Gadgets that make having guests at home a pleasure and ‘relaxed time’ a part of our weekly routines. So, now it is time for us to get into the real space of kitchen gadgets and check out a few innovative ones to prove our point.
Now a days, innovation and technology have not only made us lazy on the one hand but also raised our awareness of health on the other! A few decades ago, we were active, physically hard-working, and had active days and restful nights. We were fit and never made a ruckus about it! Today, we are less active; have long days and even longer nights and probably make no difference between night and day! We work, work, work and then party, party, party! What gets compromised in all this is our health.
But, we have also learnt our lessons and now inventors focus on gadgets that help us cook healthy food and still allow us to enjoy our treats; unique kitchen gadgets that help us make healthy food without having to slog it out in our kitchens. And one gadget that cannot miss a mention in this line of gadgets is the air fryer. No more excuses of not making your favourite foods just because they drink up a lot of oil and ultimately you end up with a lot of fat! No more defining your favourite foods as “guilty pleasures”!!
Offered by many popular brands, this gadget uses the advanced Smart Air technology that allows your food to be cooked evenly from all sides. And it is not just frying that you can do, it also allows you to bake, grill, roast – all those activities that you were doing till now with a load of oil and resulted in clogged arteries. No longer! The more advanced air fryers come with preset options to cook specific types of food and it also includes a LCD screen to allow you to select the preset options, set timer and know when your food is ready to take out. No more oil dripping and tissue soaking!
Ok, not all kitchen gadgets are meant to replace high-end or complicated tasks. There are also simple gadgets that help us speed up simple tasks, which are messy and time-consuming; and therefore make us lazy at the very thought of getting it done! One good example – chopping garlic! Not to mention how fidgety the task gets, the stinky odour in our hands after it is completed is another deterrent in including this healthy food in our diet. Not anymore!
