What are the top tech trends for 2016, and how do they relate to your kitchen?
Millennials (those born between 1982-1994) work on an average of 3 screens, and Gen Z’s (1995-2009) have an average 8-second attention span. Appliances need to have more than just one purpose.
This is the connection between tech and prestige, and clean designs. The evolution of the phone is a great example of how clean, simple designs have emerged as dominant.
Accessories that give homage to retro tech – such as mobile phone covers that look like Game Boys. Or the comeback of vinyl and the appeal of natural material.
Consumers are looking for more natural ways to take care of their health – from counter-top herb gardens to essential oils.
People want technology in their home connected. Whether it’s the ability to monitor energy consumption on their phone, or to turn on their music in another room.
Their Profile Infinite Collection features clean simple designs that fit with any décor. And if the touchscreen wasn’t enough to bring the stove into the digital age, it actually features Bluetooth technology between the range and the over-the-range so that the lighting and exhaust fan automatically turn on when the range is in use.
The surface of the cooktop is also larger so it allows for more room for different sized pots. And the smooth, seamless surface is easier to clean. The bottom drawer isn’t just for storage any more, but can be used for baking or warming.
I love any technology that will get me out of the kitchen faster and spending more time around the table with my family.
