Kitchen technology is advancing rapidly to complement our busy modern lives and our tablet, phone use. Mobile apps allow us to connect with our kitchen appliances and start various programmes on the move.
Appliances are smarter and more energy efficient helping us become more eco friendly and some allow us more space and less clutter in our kitchens. Let’s take a look at a couple of popular choices.
These have been increasing in popularity over the last few years but, as more and more people are working from home, we expect to see the demand for boiling water taps increase.
Although it might feel like luxury to have filtered, boiling, chilled and sparkling water on tap, a Quooker Boiling Water Tap is a sustainable purchase. You use less water and energy with a Quooker tap. When you dispense water from your Quooker tap, you use the exact amount of water you need.
Unlike with a kettle, where people often boil more water than needed or decide to re-boil it. Quooker’s patented vacuum tank allows for water to be kept at 110 degrees under pressure, keeping the water hot without needing to use much energy. The water only boils when it exits the tap – so it is not constantly boiling inside the vessel.
VENTED HOBS / DOWNDRAFT EXTRACTORS
With the design freedom that they offer it’s easy to see why vented hobs are growing in popularity. Offering maximum flexibility for your kitchen where virtually anything is possible: Cooking in front of a window or under eaves, in islands without the need for an obtrusive overhanging hood or perhaps to create more storage space in wall cabinets in a smaller kitchen.
They are also the most effective way to prevent cooking vapours from rising and spreading throughout an open plan space; giving you fresh air at very low maintenance – a very easily accessible filter in the hob can be popped into the dishwasher to be cleaned. They are quiet, sleek, easy to clean, effective and come in recirculated or externally vented options.
