Each year we take a step further into the future as our kitchen appliances get increasingly intelligent. Advancements in technology have made cooking ever quicker and more convenient so you can enjoy sharing perfect meals with your family while having time left over to take a moment to yourself. If you’re thinking of updating your kitchen then why not elevate your home with new state-of-the-art appliances. We’ve put together a list of the latest kitchen technologies and concepts you might want to consider including in your design.
Superb Steam Ovens
The latest innovation in cooking technology is the steam oven. The steam oven is designed to ensure every meal you cook is perfectly moist, tender and nutritious. Choosing from different levels of steam assistance means you can achieve an exhaustive range of beautifully cooked dishes. Roast meats will have a gloriously crisp exterior and a succulent inside or alter the programme to produce bakery-quality bread or even delicious fresh vegetables.
The steam oven is proven to be the best way to achieve incredibly flavoursome perfectly cooked meals every time. Furthermore, many of the models we supply at Cambridge Kitchens & Bathrooms come with additional self-cleaning technology so that once you’ve completed your perfect feast, you can relax knowing that the tiresome clean-up is taken care of.

Though not technically an appliance, concealed kitchen technology is an important topic to add to the mix when it comes to 2021 kitchen trends. As open-plan and broken-plan living increases in popularity there is a greater desire to conceal the functionality of the kitchen space. Likewise, with more of our clients opting for sleek modern designs, the requests to find discreet solutions for kitchen appliances have grown. This is worth bearing in mind when you plan your new kitchen, ask our designers about creating a stylish breakfast station to neatly hide toasters, kettles, coffee machines or even microwaves.
Downdraft Extraction Systems
The move towards downdraft extraction systems is more than likely influenced by the point made above, in that the way we use our kitchens has changed. They are now just as much living spaces as they are practical places to cook and so creating a discreet and elegant interior is incredibly important. Downdraft extractors offer the potential to position your hob anywhere in your kitchen without interrupting the look of your design. You can opt for a built-in rising cooker hood or, for the ultimate solution, consider a fully integrated cooktop extractor.
The Connected Home
From activating your oven from your phone to checking the contents of your fridge while you’re at the shops, the options to benefit from smart connected appliances are endless. Washing machines, ovens, cooker hoods, refrigerators, coffee machines and dishwashers are all available with internet enabled technology. The smart home is truly a window into the future. Every function is designed to provide the greatest convenience to you, whether that’s being greeted by a fresh cup of coffee every morning or getting your dinner cooking ready for when you get home from work. When you decide to include smart appliances in your new kitchen you’ll never look back.
Boiling & Filtered Water at the Drop of a Hat
The boiling water tap has been on the market for a while now, however, what was once a seemingly unattainable luxury is fast becoming a mainstay in homes across the country. Not only can you conveniently access boiling or filtered water whenever you need, but the Quooker design also includes fantastic safety features which makes the tap much more suitable for young families than the standard kettle. Keep your gorgeous new worksurfaces immaculate and uncluttered with a state-of-the-art boiling water tap.
