The kitchen is your home’s hub – the place where meals are prepared, stories are shared, and messes are cleaned. So, when it’s easier to prep and clean up, you get to spend more time creating memories with your friends and loved ones.

Plus, who would say no to a cut in their utility costs?

Kitchen technology is evolving to help you work more efficiently in the kitchen, saving you both time and money.

These are some of the kitchen’s newest technology trends:

Smart faucets

“The trend that seems to have staying power is hands-free motion sensor technology in faucets,” according to Leah Tuttleman, a designer at Re-Bath.  Tuttleman says that smart technology is becoming more mainstream, practical and clean, especially appealing to those who worry about germs. “No-touch technology allows you to guide your hand within 3 inches of a sensor to turn the water flow on and off.

Tuttleman says that pull-down kitchen faucets with high arcs are still high in demand. “Manufacturers are introducing buzz words like SmartTouch Technology, which allow you to activate water flow pressure with a simple touch to the faucet,” she says. “Your kitchen faucet can now tell the difference between a tap to activate the water flow, and a grasp to maneuver the faucet position.”
