Is your multitasking kitchen ready for an upgrade? Here at vipHomeLink, we’re moving towards “smart” appliances or ones that have multiple uses.

Check out these smart appliances and devices that make cooking (and even cleaning) easy, safe, and even fun. Seriously.

Ninja Foodi 

This cooking extravaganza triples as a pressure cooker, air fryer, and TenderCrisper. Cook proteins, grains, and vegetables all in one pot, all at the same time, or make “one-pot” wonders, like casseroles, stews, and chilis. Savor delicious, hearty meals with quick preparation and cooking times, which is perfect after a long day of shopping or holiday merriment.

Sous vide, or “under vacuum” in French, refers to a cooking technique where food is placed in a bag with some herbs and then cooked at a precise temperature in a water bath. This guarantees you won’t ever overcook that prime cut of meat, no matter how hard you try. Joule makes a snazzy precision cooker that clips onto your pots and pans, and you can adjust the temperature and receive updates via your smart device.

S’more cooking fun

Enjoy summer campfire fun indoors with Nostalgia SMM200 Indoor Electric Stainless Steel S’more Maker. With electric flameless heat, you can make golden s’mores even if it’s freezing outside your home. Also, enjoy delicious nightcaps after a holiday dinner with the family, scrumptious New Year’s Eve snacks (with “adult s’mores,” such as limoncello and cream cheese), or anytime delights that differ from usual desserts.

Splurge item – Smart oven 

Don’t you hate when you’re doing something — folding clothes, washing windows, or cleaning the bathroom — and your oven decides that’s the best time to ding? You no longer need to stop what you’re doing to hit off the timer. With the Whirlpool Smart Oven, you can control your oven from your smartphone or even your own voice, thanks to Alexa and Google Nest.

Treat your kitchen— and yourself — to a few items from your holiday home wish list that will make your life easier, safer, and even a bit more fun. Just make sure to add these appliances to your home inventory, located in your vipHomeLink app!
