Technology changes, adapts and reinvents itself almost daily, so it can be difficult to know where to start when selecting appliances for your kitchen. With ovens and microwaves undertaking huge innovative design makeovers, technology and kitchenware are becoming synonymous in everyday life. However, do you really need a Wi-Fi connected oven? Is a traditional extraction hood the right choice? Are my appliances the most eco-friendly? We'll be tackling these questions and more below, so you'll be able to make the right decisions for your new kitchen.

Glass Front Fridge Freezers

The rise of glass-fronted domestic fridge-freezers has brought about a new, energy-efficient way of storing food. How many times have you gone to the fridge, peered inside, only to shut the door again, repeating the process with the freezer and cupboards? With companies such as LG and Samsung developing Smart fridges with glass panels to see inside, you can keep food fresher for longer, with less wasted energy. With their advanced zoning controls, you're able to set different temperatures within the fridge for different food types, again reducing food and energy waste.

Downdraft Extractor Fans

Another appliance trend of 2021 is the emergence of downdraft extractor fans. This new, streamlined piece of technology sucks air downwards instead of up, meaning you can install your hob anywhere in the kitchen, without bulky overhead extractor fans. We've seen a huge rise in homeowners opting to install their hobs within the island, allowing for freer socialising when cooking, with this nifty gadget removing any unwanted cooking smells and steam.

Steam Ovens

As people lean more towards healthier lifestyles, appliance companies have recognised a market gap for healthy food preparation. Steam ovens are rapidly emerging as the latest trend in cooking appliances, allowing you to bake, roast and reheat any type of food to perfection- without the use of oil or butter. As they're equipped with varying intensity levels, you can cook deliciously crispy roast potatoes and soft-baked bread rolls by simply tapping the chic LCD screen.

Wi-Fi Control

This list wouldn't be complete without mentioning Wi-Fi control. With Smart technology, every appliance in your home can be operated from your smartphone. Ovens, hobs, microwaves and even fridge-freezers are now being manufactured with integrated Wi-Fi. You can turn the steam oven on, set a timer and have your dinner cooked by the time you arrive home from work. As people's lives become more demanding and busier than ever, time-saving technology such as this will soon be a standard in most homes.
