Kitchen Tech To Destress Christmas

Christmas may be a time to relax and enjoy time with your family, but it can also be stressful too, juggling dinners, buffets and trying to spend time with your family and friends.

Whatever you’re doing to celebrate, we’ve put together some smart kitchen gadgets that can help you organise your time and spend more of it with the people you love over the festive season.

Smart fridges

If you haven’t written a shopping list, or you’ve got to the supermarket and realised you’ve left it at home, it can be impossible to remember what essentials (and non-essentials!) you need.

Smart fridge-freezers allow you to check the contents of your fridge from your phone, wherever you are. They typically work by taking a picture every time the door is closed, sending them to your mobile phone.

If you’re not ready to buy a new fridge-freezer, don’t worry. You can buy cameras especially designed to fit into your existing fridge that allow you to keep to track of the contents of your fridge, recognise food items and add them to your inventory and even remind you when something’s about to expire.

Self-cleaning ovens

When you’ve been on your feet all day looking after your guests, entertaining the children, and cooking large meals, the last thing you want to do is clean your oven.

This is where a self-cleaning oven comes in; at the end of a long day, simply start a self-clean cycle and allow it to work. The pyrolytic technology will burn away any grease or dirt and leaves a fine ash that you can simply wipe away.

Alexa-controlled microwaves

You can now buy microwaves which work in sync with your Amazon Alexa, meaning you don’t have to stop what you’re doing in order to heat or cook food in your microwave. They also come with scan-to-cook technology which ensures your food will be cooked perfectly every time.

Smart dishwashers

You can load the dishwasher, then sit down and relax, picking the perfect wash cycle on your phone from the comfort of your living room. Smart dishwashers allow you to start the wash cycle, monitor the performance and check the status from anywhere.

A smart dishwasher can also alert you when you’re running low on dishwasher tablets, when a cycle finishes or if the sensors detect a malfunction or leak. You’ll also be able to download different cleaning cycles for special items, such as heavily soiled pots and pans or delicate glassware.

Appliance insurance

Putting cover in place before any of your essential kitchen appliances stop working is vital to making sure you’re insured in the event of an inconvenient breakdown.

By covering up to 10 of your most important white goods on one plan, you’ll have access to a 24/7 claims form, and our UK wide network of engineers who’ll get in touch and book in an appointment at a time convenient for you.
