It’s exciting to imagine the kind of comfort and peace of mind that technology brings to our families especially in a room as widely-used and adored as the kitchen. 

While some appliances have changed the kitchen experience, it’s thrilling to think about what’s next for the features that we think of as complete necessities in our home appliances even though currently they sound like they’re out of reach.
