While attending KBIS (Kitchen and Bath Industry Show) in Orlando with Modenus Blog Tour last week, we were introduced to some exciting appliances from Thermador that are going to change the way we work in our kitchen in ways never imagined.
Notice the wifi symbols on the floor – this means that these ovens are wifi connected These symbols were seen throughout the Thermador booth denoting which appliances are “wifi-connected”.
Why would an appliance need to be wi-fi connected? An amazing application called “Home Connect” is what this is all about! See the partners listed here:
Here are a couple of testimonials from the Home Connect website.
“There’s no magic involved – I can look into my fridge without having to open the door”
“From the aperitifs to the food: I always make a real effort when my friends come around. I often organize nibbles, flowers and prepare a delicious aperitif. Sometimes I’m standing in the drinks aisle in the supermarket and I can’t remember how much Prosecco I have left in the fridge. A quick glance at my Home Connect app tells me. It is connected to the cameras inside my fridge and lets me check the contents even when I’m out”.
“The right recipe for the ingredients I have in stock”
“A good meal should also have a good dessert”. “This is where the Home Connect app comes in. It inspires me with international and national recipes. In honor of the Obon Festival in Japan, I find a Japanese cheesecake that I want to make. The best bit is that the Home Connect app sends the cooking times and temperatures direct to my oven”.
It was great to see new products and get a private tour to learn about the new innovations.
Some of my favorites:
The refrigerator from the Freedom Collection is totally customizable inside and out, features soft close doors, and a separate box for herbs. This unit comes in stainless steel or “panel ready”. Imagine covering your fridge with original art, granite or even a chalk board!
Another great product from Thermador is what’s called the “Entertainer’s Dishwasher”. It features a gentle cycle that won’t break or damage glasses. This specialty “glass” dishwasher allows you to wash up to 26 large wine glasses or even more smaller ones all at once. This is another appliance that allows control of the appliance through the Home Connect app.
Of course this doesn’t replace your regular dishwasher, but if you entertain a lot this would be awesome! How great to have a party and not have to hand wash the glasses after your guests leave. Wake up and just put them away 🙂
Needless to say, times are changing and these appliances, as well as being the top of the line in quality, are also offering convenience and making the household more efficient!
Stay tuned for future blogs on what we saw at KBIS 2018!
