Like LG’s previous InstaView refrigerator, the ThinQ model lets you see what’s inside one of the doors thanks to its 29″ transparent touchscreen. But this version has Amazon Alexa built-in, so you can shop, play music and more via voice commands.
THE BEST Appliances
Keurig takes its pod technology from making coffee to making cocktails, cider, and sangria. The Drinkworks uses pods that contain all of the ingredients, then chills them to the right temperature and adds the right amount of fizz where appropriate. Currently in limited release.
Breville says its compact Smart Oven Pizzaiolo can make pizzas just as well as a massive wood-fired oven. It can reach up to 750ºF and diverts the heat to the parts that need it the most. It lets you make up to 12″ pizzas and has settings for a variety of pizza styles.
Brewjacket’s Beermkr makes brewing craft beer easier than cooking. Order a beer kit, put the ingredients in, turn the machine on and wait. After a week you have a gallon of fresh beer that you can store in the included dispenser. You can order premade kits or create your own.
The K-Mini Plus is the perfect coffee maker for Keurig K-Cup pod drinkers that don’t intend to consume a lot of coffee at a time. It can dispense 6 to 12oz of coffee in a single brew and can make room for up to 7″ tall mugs. It also has a container that holds up to 9 pods.
The June Oven lets you bake, broil, toast, reheat and more in one appliance. It has smart settings that let you fine tune its heat based on the type and quantity of food, which its internal camera can identify. You can even operate it with your voice or via its app.
Brava is a smart countertop oven that lets you cook up to three different kinds of food at different temperatures all on one tray. It heats up to 500ºF in under a second, so preheating becomes a thing of the past. Its control panel can even suggest settings based on your dish.
Load up Hamilton Beach’s handy countertop appliance with a tortilla, eggs, and your favorite fillings, and in 4 to 5 minutes, you’ll have a perfect (if a little small for our appetites) breakfast burrito. It also can make stuffed pancakes, and cleans up with ease.
Heatworks’ Tetra is a dishwasher that sits right on your kitchen counter. You simply place half a gallon of water in it and it does the rest. Its racks can be replaced to hold different types of tableware. It can even clean other objects and steam food. Drops 12/2018 for $299.
Effie is an upcoming robotic ironing machine. It uses contact heat, steam or both to remove wrinkles on clothing. It can iron one garment in 3 minutes and can be loaded with up to 12 items at once. So why are we still ironing? Because the robot will sell for about $920.
Tersa Steam is a wall-mounted steam cleaner for clothes. Its cleaning solution comes in proprietary recyclable pods, similar to the ones used in many coffeemakers. It only takes 10 minutes to clean and dry your garment. Each unit comes with one month’s worth of pods.
There’s an official Nuka-Cola mini fridge, but Etsy store Dragonborn Studios‘ unlicensed versions look so much better. They have weathered metal cases, can hold up to 6 cans, and can be set to warm or cold. Available in Nuka-Cola, Quantum and Vim! colorways.
BB-8 might be adorable and all, but R2-D2 is still way more versatile from what we’ve seen. For example, he can keep your drinks cool in this tabletop fridge which can hold up to 16 cans of your favorite drink. Measures 24-1/2″ tall x 12″ diameter. Motivator unit sold separately.
A couple of years back, we spotted Nostalgia Electrics’ awesome 3-in-1 breakfast machine, which is great, but only if you’re eating solo. This version has a much bigger non-stick grill, can toast 4 slices at once, and has a 4-cup coffee maker. Available in aqua or red.
We’re not sure why freakin’ Whirlpool is allowed to use crowdfunding, but their product is intriguing. Zera takes up to a week’s worth of leftover food and turns it into fertilizer in 24 hours with the help of an additive that consists mostly of coconut fiber and baking soda.
Bacon is one of the most delicious foods on the planet, but it’s difficult to cook properly and without making a mess. This kitchen gadget perfectly cooks up to six strips of bacon on a non-stick grille, keeping it from shriveling up, and catching all the grease in a tidy drip tray.
