How Will the Internet of Things Transform Our Kitchens

AI is allowing our IoT technology to perform at a new level. With the rapid advancements in machine learning algorithms, along with modern user interfaces, our gadgets are getting smarter.

However, while some technologies simply increase the convenience, lower the cost, or make it less laborious, others are capable of drastically altering our life.

How might AI-powered IoT gadgets revolutionise the kitchens in our homes?


To begin with, we need take into consideration the additional expenses that come with new kitchen equipment and kitchen renovation. Even if you are just updating the kitchen with simple choices, you might spend several thousand dollars or more; and if you instal the newest in IoT technology, those expenses will only increase.

It used to be that the costs of smart devices, such as Samsung’s Family Hub smart fridge, have been steadily falling over the years, but this is a challenge for most homes, since you can still expect to pay a lot of money for smart appliances. Many consumers may choose only one or two main smart gadgets in the kitchen, and then prioritise additional improvements, like new cabinets or countertops, that will provide them with a greater lifespan.

An environmentally responsible company

They are also capable of reducing waste for the typical kitchen, both in terms of the amount of energy they use and the quantity of food they throw away. In addition to providing energy efficiency, these devices also can monitor use data and change their energy consumption levels as necessary. These tags may help organise food in the kitchen and assist with meal planning, allowing food to last longer until it can be eaten. This is critical, since almost half of all food produced in the U.S. is wasted.


A smart refrigerator may help customers organise their food in various ways, pushing them to focus on different food groups while scanning and indexing their food. This can make people realise where inefficiencies in their food storage systems may exist. SkeLabs’ other intelligent storage products, including Home Storage Food Finder, enable customers to better understand the foods they are keeping in their pantry. Since all food would still need to be stored physically, it’s doubtful that kitchen storage will alter significantly.

The vast majority of contemporary smart gadgets would simply use the same spaces and functionalities as their earlier counterparts, with the exception of finding new ways to maximise the use of smaller physical designs. This may mean kitchens will only become cleaner and more up-to-date. In the end, this will come down to homeowners’ desire for a larger number of tiny, smart scales, such as SITU.

How rooms are used

Due to the ubiquity of mobile devices in the kitchen, American kitchens may see the greatest shift in room function. Kitchens are a traditional gathering place where people mingle, because of their close proximity to other rooms and the need to use them for food preparation. But, if you can manage to remotely control all of the cooking, storage, and other tasks, the kitchen may be marginalised as a more prominent area in the home. Though we’re now witnessing such high levels of automation, it will be several years before we see a societal shift because of it.

Are Homeowners Required to Prepare?

The information in this article serves as helpful information for you, the homeowner, to understand how these impending changes will affect you. To renovate your kitchen or get the newest and greatest smart technologies may help you better prepare for these upcoming changes, but you may be better off waiting.

On the other hand, you might argue that residential IoT is a fad, and that the newer, streamlined system of smart house technologies will replace it. Thus, while our kitchens slowly adjust to a tech-driven lifestyle, a full-scale remodel may not be right for you at this time.
