3 Game-Changing Appliance Trends

Simplify your life with these appliance innovations


The kitchen is a space that’s constantly evolving. It’s no longer just a place where food is cooked and eaten; it’s the pulse of the home. Kitchens are rooms where families hang out together, share casual meals and snacks, and often will double as a workspace. With the kitchen’s function evolving, it only makes sense that your appliances adapt with them.

Long gone are the days when appliances’ sole purpose is to store produce, cook food, and clean dirty dishes. With so many tech advancements, they’ve now become a tool to help improve your life and alleviate the stresses associated with keeping your family on track.

Check out this list of the best family-friendly appliance innovations for 2018 from The Home Depot Canada.

Combination & Speed Ovens 

During the workweek, time is a luxury. Preparing meals for your family can seem like a daunting and time-consuming task. To get back some of your precious time, consider investing in a combination oven – a game-changer that will cut your cooking time in half. The Bosch Benchmark Series 800 features a steam convection oven and wall oven pairing the precision of convection cooking with the speed of microwave technology. Talking about upgrades, combination ovens offer fast and oven-quality cooking with five modes including bake, broil, convection, microwave and AutoChef, which helps maintain exact cooking temperatures for perfect results.

Wi-Fi Connected Smart Appliances

Family and work are two demanding areas of your life and juggling both can be challenging. Let your appliances do the heavy lifting and take the stress out of extra planning. Through innovative technology such as the Samsung Family Hub 3.0, staying on top of your life’s demands are made easy. The Samsung Family Hub syncs grocery lists with your smartphone and features interior cameras that remotely display the contents inside. Like its name implies, this fridge acts as a hub to track all of your family’s schedules, pull together recipe suggestions based on the food in your fridge, stream music from Spotify, and even mirror your Samsung SmartTV so you can watch TV or movies with ease. Does it get any better than that?

Customization Capabilities 

Finding efficiencies when it comes to cleaning is an ideal scenario when you have a family. Appliances that allow you to customize based on your family’s needs is a no brainer. On our list is the Bosch Home Connect dishwasher.

It has a flexible third rack that allows you to accommodate deeper pots and pans; while adjustable tines let you customize the rack’s loading space. Taking family functionality to the next level, the Home Connect feature notifies you when you are out of soap and rinse aid via the app on your smart device.  You can also connect it to smart speakers such as Google Home allowing you to control the dishwasher via voice commands and order soap via Amazon Alexa when needed.
